Is death the end.... or only the beginning?
Ethan Wate has spent most of his life longing to escape the stiflingly small Southern town of Gatlin. He never thought he would meet the girl of his dreams, Lena Duchannes, who unveiled a secretive, powerful, and cursed side of Gatlin, hidden in plain sight. And he never could have expected that he would be forced to leave behind everyone and everything he cares about. So when Ethan awakes after the chilling events of the Eighteenth Moon, he has only one goal: to find a way to return to Lena and the ones he loves.Back in Gatlin, Lena is making her own bargains for Ethan's return, vowing to do whatever it takes - even if that means trusting old enemies or risking the lives of the family and friends Ethan left to protect.
Worlds apart, Ethan and Lena must once again work together to rewrite their fate, in this fourth book and stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series.

I absolutely love this series and highly recommend it to anyone into this sort of story. It has everything! Love, hate, fighting, magic, everything you could imagine! Kevin Collins also couldn't have done a better job reading! I have heard a few books he has narrated now and have grown quite fond him! Will definitely not be the last time I listen to the series!
Kevin is really great at managing the voices and feelings of the characters and really gives them life. I enjoyed this book and the colorful descriptions of the scenes and people/creatures that appeared in this series. Wonderful series!
unfortunatly a very weak ending. it either made the villains weaker then they've been presented before or downright dumb which is even worse. the ending where it could have been a tragic ending or a happy ending which would both be fine, instead becomes a forced talk about dead. no explanations are given to any of the events that transpired in the latter chapters. just written and ignored.
This series was overly very good, kept my interest throughout most of the entire series. I got used to hearing the male narrator after listening to the series back to back. Although the 3rd book had a small separation in narrators, this last one had a big part with the lady. I actually preferred just having the male narrator. I got used to his voice for all characters and the female narrator seemed out of place to me once she took over. (I probably would have liked the female narrator in another reading, just not once you get used to another voice). Anyway, the book was overall good, but I think it was time to end it.
I like the characters as I have all the way through the books, especially Macon and Link. Sadly though, even with the wonderful light relief of Link, this book was just too depressing. I want to escape into this kind of story, not be depressed.
I need chocolate and a glass of wine as now I'm depressed!
After Link Kills Abraham.
The same stars as the Beautiful Creatures Movie, but this shouldn't be made into Movie, again, I want an escape when I go to the Movies.
I loved the promise of this series and enjoyed the first two books, but the last two were just way to serious. The over all tone was too dark and depressing, there was too much death and sadness for me. I had to know what it was all about so finished the series, but in the end it was still sad and also an awful lot to get to a fairly weak conclusion.
