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 stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series.
What an amazing series. I fell in love with it moment that I picked up Beautiful Creatures you can’t help but love the characters, and you find yourself interested how all of this is going to end. I was ready to see how everything would end, especially the cliffhanger that left us hanging in Beautiful Chaos. It was a beautiful conclusion to a series that had become one of my favorites. I’m glad that friend of mine told me about it, has on way to suck you in from the first book till the last. I won’t lie; it will make you cry at the last few pages of the book, it’s what it did to me. Once I reached the last page I didn’t want to believe that it was finally over. The ending fit, in a way. Despite what happened to Amma, they were finally together and after everything that both of them went through, it’s what they needed. Each other. When they have one another, they can make through anything.
I loved reading from both Ethan & Lena’s point of view, I had always been curious of what Lena was thinking through all of this. What was going on in her head? How differently did she think from Ethan? After reading from her point of view and seeing what she went through to get the book for Ethan, she had fallen deeply in love with him. Both Ethan and Lena went through so much, to be together, to protect the ones that they loved. How Ethan sacrificed himself so he wouldn’t lose his loved ones, what Lena and her friends went through, to get the book to Ethan. That’s true love. What I liked about their relationship was that there was no love triangle, it was just the two of them, but they couldn’t have a real relationship because of how it affected Ethan, yet they still made it. They had a connection, loved reading the scenes between two of them.
There were some characters that took me by surprise, the ones I disliked but by end learned to love them. Like John, Link, Ridley. Yes, that’s right, Ridley. Despite how she acted, she was still pretty dedicated to her family and to Link even if she wouldn’t admit it. She did help Lena. How she came back to Link, even if she denied it, she loved him. It made me curious to see if there was more to their story. John was a guy I never saw as good guy but by end I loved him, he helped Lena so much towards end, even sacrificed himself, how can you not like him after that? There were quite few twists and turn in this book, it had you wondering and on edge of your seat. It was one of best series out there. It was magical.
