Continued with great ideas and great story, but it seemed to continue to embellish or restate things over and over and was much slower a read than the first.
Just A little bibliophile!
..and I'm confident you will, also, particularly if you do read in this genre. This second installment of the Beautiful Creatures saga contains some interesting twists and turns. It is true that at some points, the story take it's time to develop but I think that is part of the story..keeping "true to it's nature", if you will. The same can be said for the tension between the characters, and some dialogue that you find yourself wishing would or would not be exchanged between them. If you become invested enough that you get "mad" a character for what she (or he) is not doing or saying, (as I did) then the author(s) have done their job! It would not be the same story if things were "easier", or things were said differently. I find Kevin T. Collins' narrative performance pretty much impeccable. He really makes Ethan real. He does this so well that the character of Ethan himself really becomes the driving force of the story, and not just because it is, in fact, relayed in first person from his perspective. His genuineness and personality really come through. You feel like you are in his head and experiencing these events from the inside out. Also, I liked the song and the sound effects and did not find them to be too much. Highly recommend!
This is the one where Edward breaks up with Bella and runs off. Kidding, but it definately gives you that feeling. This is a good story, lots of fun fantasy. You will definately want to read it if you read the first one!
I really love listening to this series on audio. The voices and sound effects give it such life. This is a great 2nd book. At one point I wanted to toss it out the window but then Ethan saved his girl L. I dont think Ethan life will ever be kickback again.
Ethan of course. I am pulling for him, he is the boyfriend I wanted.
Bring home the fact that Ethan (a boy) is our lead and he has the accenct to make you know he has been raised as a southern gentalman
This is a great 2nd book. At one point I wanted to toss it out the window when L was alone and believing John, but then Ethan saved his girl L. all was good.
I dont think Ethan's life will ever be kickback again.
yes. Liked the story with today's high school kids and the narration was entertaining.
didn't have one.
just an easy read and listen. Got me back to thinking of my high school days and I'm a 52 year old man.

Yes, I love a good love story that breaks boundaries and defies all odds.
The love between Lena and Ethan is strained and they still never give up.
Yes, The only time i put my phone down was when it died but then i got my computer.

A really big fan of the series, I'd read the first one 3 years agos and saw the movie adaptation recently and wanted to check it out... It was too slow, the kid is STUPID not to notice some things, so much adolescent from the previous version... at least I don't remember him being so DUMB.
Don't make the kid so dumb and predictable...
Passionate, naif, clear.
All the way from the middle to the end it was sloppy...
I likrd the interaction between Lena and Ethan and Ethans reaction to Lena
When Ethan realizes his mother sent the songs
great as always
It was exciting when they were confronted with the blood pack
I found the first ansd second books of this series very good an anxious to start the 3rd
I really liked the book. In fact I am finding I truly am liking YA books much more than traditional fiction.
This book is about a young man named Ethan, and a young woman named Lena.
Lena is from a family of Casters. Ethan is mortal. Together they struggle to enter each others world, but the universe has other plans for them.
The story and the characters are well developed, and it was a pleasure to listen to the audio version of this book.
Off to listen to the second book in the series........
Kevin you gave an awesome performance narrating and the sound effects made this one of the best books I've listen to ever on audible. But I beg you not to see the movie because you will come out of it so disappointed, the movie butchered the book and did not give it justice at all. I'm just about finished with Beautiful Redemption and am trying to get my daughter and my grand girls to listen to this. Looking forward to more books from you both.
