This manga is an adaptation of the novel Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margeret Stohl. I enjoyed the novel enough to pick up this manga. It wasn't the worst graphic translation I have read, but it certainly wasn't the best. It is noticeably shorter than the book (which is pretty long). However, the main points are still there. The part I liked most about the graphic novel was that it explained things better than the book did, which was unexpected. There we're things in Beautiful Creatures that I remember not really understanding, but when I read the manga, I got it. This might be due to myself not reading the book right or analyzing it enough, but regardless, the manga helped sum up any questions I had about the book.
The cover of this manga is beautiful. It's like a newer version of the Beautifuk Creatures novel. The artwork inside isn't amazing though. I am not a huge manga fan. I like graphic novels with other kinds of artwork. Manga just isn't my thing. I wish that there was some color in the art as well. The art could've incorperated some really cool effects due to all the magic and rituals in the plot line , but it fell short.
If you are a fan of Beautiful Creatures and the rest of the series, I do highly recommend this manga. However, if you were a little iffy in what you thought about Beautiful Creatures, don't go for this extra. It won't be worth your time.

Pretty good graphic novel. Fantastic imagery, and very creative storyline that lent itself very well to a graphic novel. ( )

It was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was way better than the movies and just as good as the series. I read it as soon as i got it home!. It was creepy and a very good love story. I recommend the 500 page series because those are AMAZING!!! ( )
