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.

A great finish for a great series

What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Redemption the most enjoyable?

This book is so different from the others in the series, in a good way. You explore another setting and another side of the protagonist, so there's never time to get tired of it or lose interest. Couldn't stop listening.

A disappointing closure to the series

Would you try another book from Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and/or Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam ?

I would definitely try another book from these folks. I enjoyed the first three books and was hoping to love this book. There were a lot of red herrings in the first three that I thought would be wrapped up in this volume, but they weren't. (Why was Ethan forgetting things in the third book? How was Linc going to be able to cope with his "affliction"? Why was Ethan's reaction to Lena physically stronger and stronger in the third book?)

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

This book seemed hastily written. It tied everything up, but simplistically. And I want to know if Ethan and Lena can get fully married and live happily ever after.

Did Beautiful Redemption inspire you to do anything?

Get a more light hearted read the next time! This book was fine, but relentlessly grim and depressing.

Any additional comments?

Clearly, I liked the characters and was involved with the overall story arc. This was not a bad book, just not as good as the others.

Great Way to end the Series!

It was sad and bitter-sweet at times; but the authors really wrapped up the story in a good way. Now, if you'll just prevent Hollywood screenwriters from turning the movie sequels into their personal prejudice rants (the way they did Beautiful Creatures), I'd be very grateful.

This series went for one book too long

While I would not have been pleased with the series ending as it did in Beautiful Chaos, I found this book to be the worst in the series. I will not go as far as saying that it was a bad book, but the only word that I can think of to adequately describe this book is "severed." You may understand what I mean if you read it. If you have read the other three books, by all mean, complete the series, there's no reason not to.

Best of series

What made the experience of listening to Beautiful Redemption the most enjoyable?

Kevin T. Collins made the entire series most enjoyable, along with the sound effects.

What other book might you compare Beautiful Redemption to and why?

I have yet to find another series that compares to these books.

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

Both Kevin & Khristine brought warmth, affection and emotion to the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

During one scene where Hunter & Abraham were having their final battle with the group, I had waves of goosebumps.

Any additional comments?

A lot of people seem to be picking on Khristine as a narrator, I actually thought she did a fantastic job. Nobody will ever compare to Kevin but believe me, listen to a couple of the narrators in the City of Bones series...now THEY were horrid. Khristine did an amazing job.

Overall, this is now my favourite series of all time. It's too bad the movie was terrible and did a hatchet job on the first book.

ah-h-h-h-h-h-h. I didn't think it could get better

By far the best of the series. It will blow your mind and it is nothing you would ever have expected.

Great Book!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the way the female narrator pronounces things. The male narrator has been on since book one and she pronounces words differently which to me is jarring. I far apart.

What other book might you compare Beautiful Redemption to and why?

Any book in the Beautiful Creatures series. They are fantastic.

What three words best describe Kevin T. Collins and Khristine Hvam ’s performance?

Kevin is fantastic, good voice and captivating. I have to say that Khristine is a bit jarring with pronuncation at times, accents slip, but other than that a good speaking voice.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes!
