Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Least favorite of the series but satisfying end"
    Where does Beautiful Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is one of my favorite audiobook series- listening really brings the world to life. However, I felt a bit let down after the tension of Beautiful Chaos because the beginning of BR moved slowly and was very reflective. BR is divided into three parts- they definitely picked up as they went along. I always enjoy the writing in this series, but BR didn't quite have the pacing the others had.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Redemption?

    In the kitchen when Ethan tries to get Amma's attention and the crossword puzzle at the table with Lena and Macon.


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

    I felt the others in the series were better, but I love Kevin T. Collins as the narrator. His narrating wasn't as powerful to me in this one though. I think it's because it was so much more focused on Ethan as opposed to the characters around him. Adding Khristine Hvam really gave Lena a solid voice. I love Khristine's work in YA audiobooks. She really does a fantastic job at connecting with the characters, and Lena was no exception.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Out of the darkness and into the light


    Any additional comments?

    Even though it isn't my favorite of the series, I felt it was a good send-off. I'm going to miss Gatlin and these characters so much. Luckily the movie is coming soon!!

    "Great series!"
    Would you listen to Beautiful Redemption again? Why?

    Yes, I would. I find that there is always something that you miss the first time around. And a second listen is just as or even more enjoyable.

    "Absolutely Wonderful!"

    The final book is as good as all the other books. This series was an absolutely fantastic read. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the story was written and flowed through all 4 books. I don’t often give books a 5, but this series would get much higher if I had the ability to give it a higher rating.

    "Good End to Series"
    What did you love best about Beautiful Redemption?

    I liked the dual storylines and how they played off each other. Sorry for the vagueness, I just don't want to give out any spoilers.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lena never giving up on Ethan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ridley in the cage.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Is this the end?


    Any additional comments?

    I have really enjoyed this series and this book wraps up the series nicely. I have enjoyed the songs, which are so important to this series (Sorry, this is a bit generalized to the whole series.) I think this series is good for teens & adults. I've enjoyed it and I'm 40.

    "Good, but was confused by the ending"

    **possible spoilers**

    This book reminded me a lot of Julie Kagawa's "The Iron Knight". I won't go into too much detail, otherwise it will add spoilers.

    I definitely missed the togetherness of Ethan and Lena. This was the focal point of all the other novels, so it was hard to see a different type of angst. At the same time, it was a nice change of pace. I really liked seeing where the Greats come from - it's an interesting world with unique characters. I also enjoyed hearing from Ethan's mom. She's a central back-story character, so it was good to see more of her in this final installment.

    I have to admit that I was a bit confused and saddened by the ending. I think I understand what happened, but contact me if you'd like to discuss.

    Regarding narration, I love Khristine Hvam and Kevin T. Collins! I'm so excited the editors/authors chose to add Khristine Hvam to the story narration. I can always get into her characters.

    "Kevin T Collins is a fantastic narrator!"

    I have loved this series from the beginning, and I believe a big part of that is Kevin T Collins amazing talent at narrating the story! He captures each character flawlessly, and brings the story to life in a unique way. He uses his voice perfectly to pull at your emotions... you feel the despair, the joy, the uncertainty. This series has truly been my favorite audio book series yet. I look forward to listening to more of Mr Collins talent. As for the Khristine Hvam, she handled the story and voices well, too, but I admit, after three books with a male narrator, it was difficult for me to switch to the new character voices from Miss Hvam. She did it well, but... it wasn't what I was used to.

    Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl have created a beautiful world in the Caster Chronicles. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA Fantasy. They are talented authors! Give the series a try.

    "Wonderful end to my favorite book series"

    While I am disappointed that this is the last book in the series I felt this book was a wonderful ending to the series. I read the first two books but listened to the last two (including Dream Dark) and loved Kevin T. Collins' narration. He was perfect as Ethan and was able to capture each character with his voice acting. I felt like I was actually listening to each character speaking and felt as if I was a part of their world. For this last book I enjoyed Khristine Hvam as Lena. She too captured the character and between the two narrators, brought this final book to life. I hope to listen to these two narrators in future books.

    Story
    "Beautiful Redemption: an Atmospheric Treat"
    What did you love best about Beautiful Redemption?

    As the last book of the Caster series it continued the story and the characters of whom I had grown so fond in the prior 3.5 books. I also appreciated the performance of the narrators.

    This series had the atmosphere of the deep American South. The dialects of the characters were southern and well done. The sound effects of rain, thunder and the storms fit very well. The music was a great fit to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of this final book was reminiscent of Dante's Inferno. However, in this story it was appropriate as it continued the story of the previous book, Beautiful Chaos, and resolved the cliff-hanger ending of that book.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?

    Kevin T. Collins is the perfect choice to voice Ethan Waite, the protagonist. Khristine Hvam's voice for Lina Duchain was well done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What would you do for love? Ethan Waite loves Lina Duchain. He has gone through a lot for her...in this finale to the series he shows the lengths he will do to be with her.


    Any additional comments?

    The Caster Chronicles has become my favorite Young Adult Paranormal Series. i recommend it to all who enjoy YA fiction &/or Paranormal romance.

    "Stick with Kevin..."

    I love Kevin T. Collins, his narration is awesome. Khristine Hvam is awful, I could not wait until it was Kevin's turn again.
