The Beautiful Creatures book is pretty amazing. Can’t speak about the movie, because I have yet to rent the DVD from the library, but the book is brilliant. Basically, it’s about this boy, Ethan Wate, and the book starts off with a dream. In the dream there’s a girl, and falling, and I’m not getting any more specific than that.
It’s a love story. And the main characters are Ethan and LENA DUCHANNES, hint hint. She’s a Caster, which is basically another word for witch. And on her sixteenth birthday, Lena will be ‘claimed’ for either the ‘Light’ or the ‘Dark’. Light casters have green eyes and Dark casters have yellow.
Lena lives with her uncle, Macon, and her family are pretty much outcasts in their town, Gatlin. Lena moves in with Macon because her dad’s dead and her mom, Sarafine, is a Dark caster and wants to murder her.
On her first day of school, Ethan recognizes her from his dreams. And they’re connected. They fall in love, but the Book of Moons and Sarafine are complicating things.
Age… err… 12/13?
Also, this is the song Sixteen Moons, which Ethan keeps hearing:
sixteen of your deepest fears,
sixteen times you dreamed my tears,
falling, falling through the years…
sound of thunder in your ears,
sixteen miles before she nears,
sixteen seeks what sixteen fears…
sixteen times you dreamed my fears,
sixteen will try to bind the spheres,
sixteen screams but just one hears…
the claming moon,
the hour nears,
in these pages darkness clears,
powers bind what fire sears…
now has come the day you fear,
claim or be claimed,
moon or sun destroy me here…
So lighthearted, right?
