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.

I would as a good read, not to complex. Easy story line to follow.
The relationship between Lena and Ridley
He did a great job.
If the plot line was not so repetative, this would have been a much better book. It's one thing when there's a plot twist and the characters' situation becomes different and they have to adapt. However, with this book (and entire series), the same problems keep coming up-there is no variety to the challenges the characters face. The 16th, 17th etc moon thing was old by the time I got to this book. In a world with all of these different creatures, perhaps the story could have incorporated more about them instead of focusing completely on Lena and Ethan. We got glimpses of Ridley, Macon, and Amma, but the amount of time we spent listening to Ethan try to understand Lena's moodswings was borderline unbearable. What about John or Macon's sister? What about Ethan's father? For a series with four books I feel many of the characters could have been developed more thoroughly instead of just focusing on the two (at times irritating) main characters.
I liked the Mortal Instruments series and am looking forward to reading the Infernal Devices.
I have listened to him read the other books in this series. He gives a great performance.
The reaction I had was anticipation followed by disappointment over and over again.
Yes I enjoyed the narrators accents
I liked the continuation flow from one book to the next
He has great tallent in sounding like I imagined the characters would and good inflection in his voice
Out of chaos comes clarity
A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.
Great story continues. Some parts were so touching, I found myself crying while I drove to work. But the parts are disjointed and the overall impression is one of a chaotic mixing of events and stories. Like the puzzle described in the book, each piece was beautiful in itself, but making them fit together seemed to be very difficult and not entirely successful. I do recommend you read this book, but I also recommend that the authors take more time to get them right before publishing.
1 of our most favorite book
I love the way they play the music
this book was different and I love the way he would reveal the plots. I also enjoy how he would build up the plots with suspense
when you didn't discover the truth about what happened on Lena birthday
I was listening to this book. Then I caught my daughter started listening to it. so we started listening together at my daughter then my granddaughter join us. this is the first book that I get to listen with my daughter and granddaughter
I have loved it! I have been enjoying the entire series as I drive to and from work everyday.
I love the character development
When Ethan meets the Wheel of Destiny
The Wheel of Destiny runs over us all
I knew it was a continuation of the saga.
None, but he is definitely the perfect narrator.
Hours of fantastic mystical adventure to lose yourself in.
These books are right up there with the twilight series.
I love his performances. I have heard three other books by this author already by h.
I loved Ridley causing trouble with her siren ways.
Yes maybe in a few years. I had previously listened to the series and this
was the last in the series.
Ethan and Link
