Lots of you have asked how many books will follow BEAUTIFUL CREATURES.  We are excited that we can finally share the answer with you.  Little, Brown will be publishing all four books in THE CASTER CHRONICLES series, so you will have three books to look forward to after you read BEAUTIFUL CREATURES!

From Publisher’s Lunch (March 1, 2010):

Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s third and fourth books in The Caster Chronicles series, continuing the story of Ethan Wate and Lena Duchannes as they are pulled deeper into the haunting Southern gothic world first introduced in the bestselling Beautiful Creatures, again to Julie Scheina and Jennifer Hunt at Little, Brown Children’s, for publication in Fall 2011 and Fall 2012, by Sarah Burnes of The Gernert Company (NA).

We want to thank  all the authors, bloggers, tweethearts, and readers who have embraced BEAUTIFUL CREATURES and us.  This is all because of you.

  5. Audrey says:

    I just finished Beautiful Creatures and am so excited for the release of more of the story between Lena and Ethan!

  6. I’ve just finished reading and reviewing Beautiful Creatures, I really enjoyed it! I knew there would be a sequel as the final page of the book gives us a STRONG hint that there would be. I’m happy to hear that there is going to be a third and fourth book too though! I look forward to reading and reviewing them in the future! I wonder if I can beg for ARC’s…hehe

  7. Jane says:

    Is there going to be four total books?

    Huzzah! BC was in the top five of my favorite book I read last year, so I’m pleased there’s quite a bit more to come. :D

  9. Alexa says:

    I’m so excited! I can’t wait to read more.

  11. Samantha Strange says:

    I loved Beautiful Creatures and I have convinced all my friends to go out and buy a copy. They all love it as well and I can’t wait for the rest of them to come out.

  12. Raven Crepsley says:

    Beautiful Creatures is the first book in a long, LONG time I actually want to go out and buy. I just got it yesterday at 9 pm when I was scanning the stacks of my library, and Mom pointed it out to me. So I went home, finished my first book, and started on Beautiful. I stayed up till 5:45 reading, finally fell asleep on the poor book, and woke up at noon. So, obviously, I. LOVED. IT. !!!!!!!!! I just finished five hours ago, and I was hanging on every word. I lived through Ethan, and it made me feel wanted, and like I belonged. My small town is exactly like SC. I felt normal for once as I read this book.

  13. Kim Murdock says:

    Absolutely loved it! I am a librarian at our local high school and I can not keep your book on the shelf. My students beg for more when they return it. They will be pleased to know there are going to be 4 books in this series but they can’t get here soon enough. Thank you and look forward to the 2nd book.

  14. Alynna Ramos says:

    Already read Beautiful Chaos…and it was amazing!! Can’t wait to read the book 4 !

  15. kasey says:

    Oh Cry!! Just 3 after Beautiful Creatures? :( I’ve read all up Beautiful Chaos and have loved every moment of it! cant wait to read Dream Dark :) that should be excellent!! ( Dream Dark doesn’t count in the 3 correct?) I have to give the compliment to this well written series. As of late i have picked up books, loved the first one but the following books to the series disappoint. However this series does not disappoint it keeps getting better and better. thanks so much for putting this series on the shelves. cant wait till book 4 :)!!!

  16. git says:

    when is book 4 going to be released?

  17. Kissi says:

    OH MY GOD! I just read Beautiful Chaos and I NEED 2 KNOW IF THERE’S AN ANOTHER BOOK! I cried over all of them, and i recommend this book to all of my friends! i have read all of the books so far but there has to be more! its like the end of a movie that still doesn’t make sense, And that’s the reason there needs to be more to Ethan & Lena, It just can’t all end like that, so hurry up with another book, I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

  18. shelby says:

    i just finished reading beautiful chaos and was praying there was another book! is the 4th out yet!?

  19. sophia says:

    cant wait just finished the 3rd book
    wats the 4th book called?

  20. Lena K. says:

    I happen to have the same name as one of the main characters in your books so my friend introduced me to it. I bought them two days ago and I have finished books 1 and 2. I couldn’t stop reading! I really want to read the 3rd book! I can’t wait until I go book-shopping with my mom. We’re both book fanatics:) I hope Ethan and Lena can be together in the end. As I am quite the romantist:) It would be sad if they each lead different lives, or if Ethan decides that Liv is better than Lena. After all he did once almost kiss Liv and Liv is a Mortal who probably won’t kill him. And apparently she’s “Third Degree Burns Hot” according to Link;) I’m looking forward to book 4. I’ll buy it the day it comes out! And hope you will continue to work together to create another books series. To be honest I wish you guys wrote a million more books in your series. But I guess something has to happen, and something must change for “All change is not growth, as all movement is not forward-Ellen Glasgow
    Felt like having Marian moment right now or a Liz moment;)
    Thanks for the books I love them!
    Please write more-
    Lena Kane, and anyone who has a sense of AMAZING american literature;)

  21. Lena K. says:

    Oh yeah another thing I liked about your book was how Ethan could never get his quotes right! Marilyn or Liz would say a quote and then he would say the completely wrong persons name;)

  22. Lena K. says:

    Oh No!
    Is Beautiful chaos the 4th book? and is that story thing the third? I’m freaking out please tell me that story thing is just an add on! and that you will have one more Beautiful Creatures book! And a ton more little add on stories?
    Please I hope it’s not done!

  23. Kaity says:

    Currently reading the third one. I have to say, beautiful creatures was amazing. In my opinion, beautiful darkness wasn’t but that’s because the whole book was finding Lena ad it wasn’t interesting until they started to get claimed. Im on page 70 so far in beautiful chaos and so far so good. The series is wonderful though, good job writing it.

  24. Bryce says:

    When is the 4th book coming out?!?!?! I LOVED the entire series and just finished Beautiful Chaos. Why Ethan? Why did he die? I NEED MORE!!!!! IM ADDICTED!!!!!!

  25. Kareena Bryson says:

    NOO O: I can’t wait for fall of 2012!!! D: aaah!!! I’m more obsessed with this series than Twilight and The House of Night Series PUT TOGETHER Dx
    Don’t stop writing, I admire you(:

  26. shonteen fee says:

    yay! so excited, can’t wait til the 4th book comes out! but what is the name of it?

  27. Linda N. says:

    OMG, I can’t wait for the 4th book to come out!!! I have all the series and I’m still reading the first book sense I just got it weeks ago….BUT! I’m LOVING IT!!!! Because I finally found a book that I finally interested in! So after I’m catched up…looking forward to the 4th book! Hopefully theres a 5th too.

  28. ms Lee wALSH says:

    Can it be possible that, yet, another book is going electronic and I will not be able to read it at my leisure???????
    I love the first book so far and was going to buy the second but if I do not own a NOOK or any other e-book.
    I don’t really want to read any further if I can’t finish the series.
    Please let me know.
