Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan's eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there's no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town's tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Page Turner Loved this one as much as the first. although it reminded me of new moon from the twilight series. you wanted Ethan and Lena to be together. when they weren't, you were as miserable reading about it as they were feeling in the book.
Date published: 2012-10-05
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was expecting more I didn't find the first book all that good, and really hoping that the second would be better, but I didn't feel like it was any better then the first. The first 300 pages could of defiantly been shortened down as it took a long time to get going, and then when it finally started to look up, it was over... A lot like the first book.
