About the Caster Chronicles
The Caster Chronicles is a four-book series written by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It was published by Little, Brown on December 2009. Amazon.com named it one of the top ten books of 2009 and the top pick for best teen book. The sequel to the pilot book Beautiful Creatures, entitled Beautiful Darkness, was released on October 12th, 2010. The third book was released, Beautiful Chaos, in Fall of 2011.
The fourth, and final, installment of the series, Beautiful Redemption, was released on October 23, 2012.
Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. Mysterious, suspenseful, and romantic, the Caster Chronicles introduce a secret world hidden in plain sight. A world where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen. Sometimes life-ending.
