Review – Beautiful Darkness

So. I was very fortunate to acquire an Advanced Reader Copy of Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. I spent the week reading this book. My reactions were basically as follows:

“What, wait… yay! Um, no!!!! That’s the end?! Um… erm… wah!!! Want more!!! Want more… want!!!” *kitty paws*

That’s about the amount of eloquence I could conjure up while reading this fantastic book. And it was fantastic, all the way through. But, if I tell you anything about it I will ruin the entire book for you. Which is a bother, because it’s very hard to write a cohesive review without saying a lot about the book. What can I talk about? What can I say about this book? Beautiful Creatures was one of my favourite books last year. I’ve sold nearly 100 of BC in the store that I work in. It was one of the triumphs of the entire Young Adult genre. That said, this book enhances it that much more.

I’m thrilled for the ladies who wrote this. I don’t think they can do any wrong at this point. It’s brilliant, gush worthy, intense, and heart breaking.

I cannot wait for this to release in the final format. It releases Oct 12, 2010 and I want to be able to talk about it with my favourite customers more than anything. Until then, 5 of 5 stars to the wonderful ladies who created this amazing world. Cannot say enough good things. It’s wonderful.

Awesome! Glad to be assured that Beautiful Darkness is good (or even better) than BC! Can’t wait to read it!

I still haven’t read Beautiful Creatures, but plan on doing so soon. It’s sitting on my shelf waiting… I’m glad to hear the sequel is good! 🙂
