This is the sequel to Beautiful Creatures which I liked. It's the continuation of what happens to Ethan and Lena after she was supposed to be claimed on her 16th birthday, but wasn't. Now she's supposed to be claimed on her 17th birthday, but she feels as though she's killed her uncle that raised her as his own, and she just can't escape the guilt. She keeps feeling worse and worse and her eyes start to change to completely golden, a dark creature. Of course, she can't live with that because all of her relatives who are light will die. She still has a while until her 17th birthday when she will have to be claimed one way or the other, or does she?? I enjoyed this book. It was an engaging story, you want to know what happens to Ethan, Lena, Riddley and Link. I still have the same complaint that I seem to have a lot. Don't use swear words, come up with some other words to use people! This could have been worse that way, I just have a particular offence with the one that was used!
