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.

Great series!

Where does Beautiful Chaos rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

Fantastic!

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 started out loving this series, but...

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

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
