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 really love these books....good read for young adults and grown adults.
Alma......love her nature.
very good and male and females characters.
This book is a great collaboration of 2 writers that I was not familiar with until I read these books. I love the detailed descriptions of people, places, or things. And it just draws you in like you are there with them.
As the third book in the Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles series), I find that I’m still reading the series without putting the books down. This book goes more indepth into what is going on under the town of Gatlin and keeps the reader guessing what’s going to happen next. Lena and Ethan just can’t seem to get a break. No matter what happened in the first two books, this book expands on what happened and at the same time brings new information to light. I absolutely can’t wait to read the next and final book!
I am kind of getting tired of it all, I fear. I actually find aspects of the plot very crazy confusing, like the whole thing about Lena's Mother calling the claiming moon out of time and Uncle Macon being back,etc...huh??? My fear is that we might be listening to
The first two books grab your attention, the last two are just awful!!
She should have stuck with the original story in the first two books of the series.
Tell us about yourself! I am the author of "Over the Moon" and "Falling Off the Planet." They are both YA Sci-fi fantasy romance.
I know if you have read the other two "Beautifuls," you'll have to read this one. It has some moments of beauty, and it has some fun scary scenes. I love the southern culture and the characters are well drawn. However, after being so invested in the story, the end was disappointing and definitely NOT beautiful. The sacrifice didn't quite make sense to me. It seemed like an arbitrary farce. The inevitability didn't ring true. I was disappointed and it left me feeling depressed. Maybe, that's what the author intended. but I didn't like it.
