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.

    "The End"

    This book was so much better than the previous book in this series. This storyline was so much more exciting and interesting. It is a really good book to end the series on.

    "Kevin T. Collins is an awesome reader!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Redemption to be better than the print version?

    The books are very good, but they are made extraordinary by this reader.

    "What a great Ending!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I already have! All I can say is read these books you will love them!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    (Spoiler) Do Not Read If You Don't Want To Know The End!! My favorite part was Ethan finally being able to be with Lena without worrying about dying, lol


    What does Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Don't get me wrong they are both great! The only thing I did not like was it seemed like Kevin T. Collins had a cold or something and did not sound right. Over all though I don't think the books would have been Out of this World if it was not for them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!!

    Story
    "Love this entire series."
    What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Redemption the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is very good at giving each person their own voice and personality. The writing and narration put together makes this book an absolute hit. I just hope that when the movie comes out the actors can give the characters as much depth as the author and narrator did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the orginality. It is a story that hasn't been done. So many books are following the same line that their predecessors have and this book takes a whole new spin on the ideas of witches and other things that go bump in the night. It was a refreshing read with refreshing ideas.


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

    I have not.

    Reader, writer, teacher, consultant. I read mostly Young Adult and Genre Fiction, especially with a mix of literary style and commercial pacing.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.
