Will Lena Be Claimed Light Or Dark?

Beautiful Creatures

Supernatural

Of course there are so many different themes for the book Beautiful Creatures such as Magic and Romance. But the major theme for this book is supernatural. Two quotes from the book are: "Got it. Demon. Death. Doom." "Mortals. I envy you. You think you can change things. Stop the universe. Undo what was done long before you came along. You are such beautiful creatures."

Lena, the new girl in town, moved in with her Uncle Macon to prepare for her Sixteenth Birthday.

Lena Duchannes is not like anybody Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to hide her power and a curse that has been passed down in her family for generations. But even though Gatlin is a small town, a secret can't stay hidden forever. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can leave Gatlin, has nightmares of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest mansion, Ethan is attracted to her and determined to uncover the connection between them. In a town with no surprises, one secret and person could change everything.
