Beautiful Darkness continues right where Beautiful Creatures left off, and is an exciting gothic love story. Supernatural powers and abilities abound as Seers, Empaths, Casters, Sirens, Incubi, Succubi, and Waywards are all part of this story. A Blood Incubus is introduced in this book, which is much like a vampire, and a main character is turned into one. Suspenseful and action-packed, the story has characters exploring tunnels and different worlds, as well as traveling through time and place. The age-old battle between good and evil/darkness and light is central to the storyline, as is a generations-old love story. Some violence, fighting, and frightening imagery are present, and main characters are often in dangerous, life-threatening situations. Depression is alluded to, as Ethan's father returns home from a stay in a psychiatric hospital. Language is mild (cr-p, scr-w you, h-ll, b-tch, a-s) and some steamy making out takes place. Fans of this very popular series will be thrilled that the ending seems to lead into a third book.
