Book 3 (Book 1: Beautiful Creatures, Book 2: Beautiful Darkness)
Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena’s Claiming. Even Lena”s family of powerful Supernaturals is affected – and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What – or who – will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin? For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He’s being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn’t by Lena – and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself – forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn’t know why, and most days he’s too afraid to ask. Sometimes there isn’t just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there”s no going back. And this time there won”t be a happy ending
This book was really good. The story is interesting, the characters are interesting, but more importantly the world the characters live in is interesting. I like the whole light and dark castor concept and all the magic that takes place in such a small town. I really enjoy the southern charm that is integrated and written into the book. The book was kind of a letdown in terms of a real big climax or battle but it was still interesting. The book leaves off with the promise of something interesting to happen in the next book and I’m excited to know what type of story the authors create for the finale. I would recommend this book.
The final book in the series is called Beautiful Redemption and it comes out Oct 23, 2012.
