Winner of the 2013 Goodreads Choice Award for Graphic Novels & Comics!
There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

This manga is an adaptation of the novel Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margeret Stohl. I enjoyed the novel enough to pick up this manga. It wasn't the worst graphic translation I have read, but it certainly wasn't the best. It is noticeably shorter than the book (which is pretty long). However, the main points are still there. The part I liked most about the graphic novel was that it explained things better than the book did, which was unexpected. There we're things in Beautiful Creatures that I remember not really understanding, but when I read the manga, I got it. This might be due to myself not reading the book right or analyzing it enough, but regardless, the manga helped sum up any questions I had about the book. The cover of this manga is beautiful. It's like a newer version of the Beautifuk Creatures novel. The artwork inside isn't amazing though. I am not a huge manga fan. I like graphic novels with other kinds of artwork. Manga just isn't my thing. I wish that there was some color in the art as well. The art could've incorporated some really cool effects due to all the magic and rituals in the plot line , but it fell short. If you are a fan of Beautiful Creatures and the rest of the series, I do highly recommend this manga. However, if you were a little iffy in what you thought about Beautiful Creatures, don't go for this extra. It won't be worth your time.

I picked up this book after all the praise I seen it got on you tube.. I also love the name and cover it just makes you want to see what it is all about.. It is a YA book which I thought would be a little below my reading level but I was pleasantly surprised.. The book was great.. The plot worked well and the characters pulled you in.. I was still thinking about the book when I was reading it.. I must admit I had a soft spot for Macon Ravenwood.. The overall book was worth reading and I would recommend it to anyone..
