Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2) - Kami Garcia,  Margaret Stohl This book was just as great as the first.

I cried a few times. I thought Lena was frustrating, annoying and stupid for most of the book, which is exactly how I was supposed to feel. As confused as Ethan was. This is why using Ethan as the main character, and giving the story from his POV was such a genius move. You couldn't have got that suspense from Lena's POV.

I didn't see the whole Aunt Prue thing coming, nor the Macon and Jane, or the Link ending. I knew about the cat and Macon and a few smaller things, but I love a great twist that totally takes you by surprise. It's what this book lives for.

Everything has changed now, so there's no clue as to where it might go. All the baddies are still as bad, and I look forward to seeing them again. Onto the 2.5 Dream Dark and then I can get straight into books 3 and 4. Can't wait to see how this series is going to end, but I know that I'm going to miss it when it's gone.
