So, as some of you may or may not know, I really loved Beautiful Creatures. I loved Ethan and Lena's story, and all of the awesome side characters in this world. Like Link, Ridley, and Amma.
What I think I love most about most 2nd books in a series is that most of the "introductions" are done, and we kind of get to sink into the story.
I don't know that I felt exactly like that with this one, but it was still that feeling of getting to spend time with people you already know.
And some you didn't.
Like Liv. I loved her so much.
I think she may possibly be my favorite side character now, which is saying a lot. because I have a lot of them in this series. She is strong, fierce, independent, and above all- she has an amazing heart. Even if it causes her to kind of put herself in the line of fire for what she believes.
I'm kind of Team Liv now. But I know it's unlikely, so I'm trying to pretend that I'm not.
Lena had her own journey in this installment, and I found it very hard to understand her choices and forgive her, even when i knew I should. (Probably due to the Team Liv in me.)
The exploration of good and evil definitely continued, and I loved that Ethan had to figure it out just as much as everyone else.
If you loved Beautiful Creatures, you definitely will not be disappointed by Beautiful Darkness!
I am currently working my way through Beautiful Chaos, and it has yet to disappoint either! :)
