Teen Read Awards had this to say about Beautiful Creatures:
In their debut novel, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl expertly merge their two voices into one as they immerse you in the small Southern town of Gatlin and the haunting and mystical story of Ethan and Lena. Fan favourite Beautiful Creatures is the first of a series that is sure to continue to enchant us and exemplifies what it means to be Best New Writer.

- Alexandra Bullen – Wish
