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.

FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!!!

Would you listen to Beautiful Chaos again? Why?

AGAIN AND AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN, AND THEN ONE MORE TIME FOR GOOD MEASURE. I literally crave this series when listening or reading to mundane, less in-depth novels.

Any additional comments?

Intelligent! Well-written. Book lovers rejoice! This one has loads of witty references to the greatest novels and authors of all time. If you enjoy coming of age love stories, characters not only find out who they are but also discover their own past & future, anything supernatural, bro-mances, or YA novels, you should definitely give this series a chance! Personally, I get similar vibes to that of Twilight (roles reversed) but witty, more in depth characters. I love this series!

Is Death Really the End?

Something's up with Ethan Wate. Nothing is the same as it once was --- his attitude, his relationships, even his tastebuds! But one things is back to normal, or as normal as it ever was for a caster girl & a mortal boy to be girlfried/boyfried. Ethan helped pull Lena back from her destructive ways just a few months prior. Now it's Lena's turn to help discover what's going on with Ethan. Lena, Ethan, & their faithful sidekicks Link, Liv, John Breed, & even Ridley spend much of the book trying to discover how to restore the order of things. They are told that the only person that can restore the order is "the one who is two". But who is that? In the last moments of the story, Ethan uncovers the truth & must take bold action. Ends on a cliffhanger.

This may be my favorite book of the series simply because it has so many connecting parts to the bigger story. Several things have happened in the previous 2 books that contribute to the mystery problem in book 3. So far, all of the corrective actions to solve a problem have solved one aspect of the problem but brought on a new problem to solve. The corrective action taken at the end of this book left me wondering how this new problem could possibly be resolved. Or is this going to be a series that has one of those good, but not a "feel good" ending? The final book in the series, book 4, should give us the answers we seek!

Age recommendation: 14 & up (spiritual elements, death)

On a scale of 1-10 stars, I give it 8.

yaaas

I just didn't like the background noise. would've been much better without it, honestly. That's why the performance is rated a 4.
