Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is one of the strongest contenders to become the next big teen franchise. This best-selling South Carolina-set Southern Gothic series revolves around high schooler Ethan Wate, who falls in love with a girl who appears in his dreams. A major film adaptation is in the works with stars like Viola Davis and Emma Thompson attached, along with lesser-knowns Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert as the teen leads. The three installments so far – Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos – have garnered positive reviews and gained a large following. The fourth novel Beautiful Redemption won’t be available until Oct. 23, but EW has the first peek at the cover below!
