Beautiful Darkness is a very quick read despite its size. It is the second book in what appears is going to be a trilogy, and I would recommend that you read the first book before this one, as it would be very confusing if you didn’t. This book is about a southern town called Gailtin where mortals and casters live together (though most of the mortals are unaware of this.) Ethan Wate (who is mortal) is in love with a girl named Lena (who is not.) When Lena runs away from home, Ethan and his two mortal friends go looking for her deep into the caster world. I found this book enjoyable but also rather forgettable; a great read if you just want something light and fun.
