Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Though all his life he's been able to fit in, Ethan Wate has always known that the tiny southern town of Gatlin isn't for him. The people are too close-minded, ambitions too small, the girls fluffy and fake. Lena is a newcomer to Gatlin, a powerful Caster from a family shunned by those in town. Ethan instantly feels the connection between them. What he doesn't know then is how strong that connection is, and how deeply it will test them. Plagued by a strange dark curse, her relationship with Ethan will threaten their friends, family and the community of Gatlin itself.
A stormy southern gothic tale, this was first and foremost a love story. It is unique in that it is for a female readership, but written with a male protagonist - I loved this! The writing was exquisite, and the story, though lengthy, kept me riveted from cover to cover.
