Beautiful Chaos: Beautiful Creatures, Book 3 | [Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl]

Beautiful Chaos: Beautiful Creatures, Book 3

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?

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Too much of the same thing"
    What would have made Beautiful Chaos better?

    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.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I liked the Mortal Instruments series and am looking forward to reading the Infernal Devices.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to him read the other books in this series. He gives a great performance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The reaction I had was anticipation followed by disappointment over and over again.

    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.

    "Beautiful Chaos is the perfect Title"

    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.
