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 askSometimes 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

Its just everything is SO DRAMATIC all the time I m exhausted I m drained I just don t care any The mortal world is in a state of Beautiful Chaos and destruction, which will ultimately lead to an exquisite end. See It s all fluff and drama and ANGST All of these plots are blending together there s hardly any distinction between the books and we keep circling the same problems every time.To Summarize Ethan LOVES Lena Lena LOVES Ethan But they can t be together BECAUSE REASONS actually, it s because if they were to bang, Ethan would burn up and die BECAUSE REASONS But they still make out all the friggin time I needed to touch her, like I needed to breathe. Can you feel my frustration To Expand my Summary Ethan s hometown Gatlin is experiencing an absolutely insane summer locusts, heatwaves, terrible storms are all condensing on their little town Link s mom thinks it s the end of the world and she just may be right.In the last book, Lena decided to be a special snowflake and claim herself opposed to letting either the dark or the light side claim her Her decision caused the whole Caster world to be thrown into chaos Again.Ethan s dreams are getting crazy Again Lena is withdrawing from him Again.They both experience crazy fits of jealousy and love Again.Rinse Repeat Honestly, the only thing keeping me going is Link I love absolutely everything about this kid He was just bitten by an incubus and now is a quarter supernatural He s renamed himself the Linkubus The Linkubus And despite feeding off people s dreams and being a creature of the night, he s still the best dang thing about this seriesHey, Ethan Yeah Remember the Twinkie on the bus The one I gave you in second grade, the day we met The one you found on the floor and gave me without telling me Nice He grinned and shot the ball It never really fell on the floor I made that part upHe s my only reason for reading this book I could care less if anyone dies in this book well, except Ridley and that s only cause Link is crushing on her and Link deserves happiness But.Here comes the real question Is he worth suffering from this level of love She closed her eyes, and I closed mine, and even though we weren t holding hands, it felt like we were. Honestly Yes The Linkubus makes every last word worth itThis church picnic ain t no picnic You re my fried chicken Holy finger lickin Savannah yelled at him over the music Are you callin me a piece a fried chicken Nah Not you, Slush Queen Never He closed his eyes and pounded out the drums on the dashboard of the BeaterLink is my true love.Audiobook CommentsRead by Kevin T Collins he did a pretty good job of it.YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Reading

    You know what freaks me out a bit That I never finished this book.I was reading it, and then I wasn t and it was two weeks later and I found it in the back of my closet.It was justgood But I there were parts that were so boring I wanted to tear my eyes out And I have to admit that after three books of action and drama of apocalyptic proportions, I think I was a little tired of it.I ll have to see what my cousin thinks They were like her favorite books, and she hasn t read this yet.

    I am disappointed I started reading Beautiful Chaos with a huge smile and ended up with a frown on my face.After the great adventure I experienced with Beautiful Darkness, I expected Beautiful Chaos to surpass the excitement and thrill of the 2nd book of the Caster Chronicles Sadly, it just dragged on and to think that I was really, really eager to see a lot of great things from this book There were several elements that bothered me while reading Beautiful Chaos, and they are as follows THE I am disappointed I started reading Beautiful Chaos with a huge smile and ended up with a frown on my face.After the great adventure I experienced with Beautiful Darkness, I expected Beautiful Chaos to surpass the excitement and thrill of the 2nd book of the Caster Chronicles Sadly, it just dragged on and to think that I was really, really eager to see a lot of great things from this book There were several elements that bothered me while reading Beautiful Chaos, and they are as follows THE PACING It didn t bother me that the first book, Beautiful Creatures, started out slow I get it There were a lot of things I needed to sink my brain into Then came Beautiful Darkness that blew me away with such a thrilling adventure, which up until now, I could still not get over by the way Unfortunately Beautiful Chaos came out slower than the first and just happened to be even less eventful too.CHARACTER INTERACTION None of the characters wanted to tell anybody anything They ve always been so secretive during the first and second book, and it s obvious that keeping secrets just gets them deeper into trouble and yet they keep doing so I really wanted to jump inside the book and slap each character senseless When will they ever learn PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS Another thing the characters don t seem to learn or improve at The constant I don t know and We need to figure out soon is really getting old They keep saying they ll figure it out and yet till the end, they still haven t They keep trying to find a way to solve it fast but then end up with something else to worry about It s an endless cycle.THE NUMBER OF PAGES 500 pages of all of talk and worry and not much going on is a pain There are some chapters that I felt asking myself if they were really necessary to the story or not CLIFFHANGERS Another endless matter How many moons will it take for anything to actually happen that ll push me off my seat NOT ENOUGH LINK Seriously He turns into a quarter incubus and that s when he gets pushed aside I had seen him in asignificant role as a mere mortal than now when he s gotpower in him Not cool.So there I feel so bad for ranting out but I really had such high hopes for this book I m a little skeptical about reading the next after this I don t know if it would get anywhere at all.Forof my reviews, please visit my blog The Blair Book Project www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com

right in the Mortal and Caster Worlds The events that transpired at Lena s forced Seventeenth Moon Claiming created far reaching consequences A crack splintered through the Order of Things a slit formed in our world that is slowly spreading, sprawling and decimating life as we know it Gatlin is plagued by relentless, scorching heat, grasshoppers, a dried up lake and the Baptists led by the intimidating Mrs Link, waving their signs proclaiming the end of world and reminding all of us sinners to repent Our friends are haunted by their own torments For Ethan, it seems that the debt from Lena s Sixteenth Moon Claiming is due Every night he is trapped in sweaty, terrible, haunting nightmares, filled with visions of falling and death He feels blurry, out of focus and he is catching glimpses out of the corner of his eye is something shadowing him The worst part is that he is forgetting things, losingof himself each day, it is as if something is gnawing at his mind Amma knows that Fate is expecting payment and she is tortured by the steep price She is distracted and frazzled Her crosswords set aside, pie making abandoned and The Greats aren t answering Lena, has claimed herself, she is sharp, bright and ready to fight but her Caster powers are misfiring as are all the Caster s powers Link is dealing with his transformation into Linkubus and moaning over the unattainable Ridley As each day passes and the apocalypse nears, Ethan once again finds himself in a battle This time it is different, he is struggling against the Wheel of Fate The march of the present to the future and into destiny The Wheel is grinding, chewing through time and pulverizing everyone in her path No one can escape, she crushes all Can Ethan avoid the Wheel s path What I Liked I am a big fan of this series and book three did not disappoint In fact this is the best book yet I ripped into the pages and scarfed them down, it was so good The plot of this book moves away from Lena and onto Ethan The big boot has fallen and our characters are trapped under the stomp Chaos and destruction reign This story is thick There are so many sub plots trailing the main story of Ethan trying to restore The Order and himself This book will have your mind whirling, it is deep Be prepared for anything It builds and builds to a heart wrenching ending that will have you running to check when the next book is available You NEED to meet my friends in Gatlin but please start with book one, Beautiful Creatures The characters this time around have grown and matured, Lena especially At last she has ascended beyond the emotive, brooding, dramatic girl to staunch and determined I really enjoyed her transformation Ethan is amazing, for all you Ethan lovers out there, your boy is as always, courageous and endearing His willingness to sacrifice will shred your heart Linkubus, provides the laughs and he excels in his new super hero role, he so isn t lame like Aquaman Everyone has returneddeveloped and better There is one heart breaking loss along the way Be prepared to shed some tears I wonder where my friends will go from here This entire series is peppered with many memorable quotes from so many famous people from Dickinson, Poe, Plato, Da Vinci and even Winston Churchill Any literary connoisseur will love not only the quotes but the references to some great literature I have decided that Ms Stohl and Ms Garcia need to only after the finale of the Caster s Chronicles as I do not want my wait time extended publish a Gatlin cookbook and lace it with famous quotable lines And The Not So Much I am still conflicted over the John Breed character As I suspected in Beautiful Darkness, he is an important character This time some light was shed on why he seemed so flat and puppet like in the last book His character fills out in this installment and I even grew to like him, as does Ethan after he gets over wanting to punch him in the face but I feel that I am still missing something Hopefully, it will all become clear in book four This is a personal preference but I wantedLinkubus I was hoping that with the transformation that Link would be evenprominent than he was in the last book It starts out with a strong dose of Linkubus but toward the end his presence fades He does remain a solid, steadfast friend and he rips in at timely moments to save the day I think to satiate the Linkubus hunger there must be a spinoff series featuring the lovable Link Plus, I still don t know what he was doing in Amma s basement when he was nine A burning question that needs an answer As I mentioned previously, this is a complicated story line with many threads that all intertwine However, I was disappointed that there were so many lines and none of them draw to resolution Especially with the climatic, tear jerking, and tender buildup I am not even kidding about this and then the heart splitting, jaw dropping ending that will have you screaming NOoooo Ladies, how can you be so cruel to slap us in the face with that finale and leave us suffering with a painfully, long, length of time to wait Book three in The Caster s Chronicles is bigger and better than the first two In Gatlin, where things never change, it has changed and mostly not for the better Our friends in Gatlin, transformed from their previous traumatic adventures are trying to evade the deadly, revolving Wheel of Fate, as she crunches through time and devours all Can our heroes somehow defy her trampling spokes and change the future Can they bring about a New Order and stop the Chaos I expect book four to be an epic finale.Final Quotations That when she looked at me, it was like there was no one else in the world That when I looked at her, I noticed every detail about her while everything else faded away That I was only myself when we were together Books Ridley looked disgusted Carry We sat in silence, holding hands until it hurt, until the sun fell away behind the words, behind the glass and the trees and the river The night slid across her bed, and I waited for the darkness to erase everything Everyone s crazier than usual My mom started talkin about buildin a bunker again She s buyin up every can at the Stop Steal, like we re gonna hole up in the basement until the Devil gives up or somethin Book banners are no better than book burners Maybe it needed to be broken Sometimes things have to break before you can fix them You know vegetablism is one step closer ta a world without panties an preachers That there is a documentated fact We change whether we want to or not Same goes for the people you love and the people you don t and the people who love you and the people who don t.The only thing that mattered was that you cared about a few people.Life is really, really short Maybe my mom s right and this is the End a Days Maybe she s gonna get a chance to use her wheat grinder and her gas masks and that inflatable raft after all I ll love you until the day after forever

    I have not finished this book And I need to state that I get quite irritated when I read reviews and the reviewer says they haven t finished the book yet But, I don t think I can get through the book and I wanted to write about it Maybe I will skim it just to see how it ends When I started this series I was pleasantly surprised and thought it was a fresh approach to the teen supernatural genre, especially since the overly beautiful mysteriously powerful love interest was female for a change I have not finished this book And I need to state that I get quite irritated when I read reviews and the reviewer says they haven t finished the book yet But, I don t think I can get through the book and I wanted to write about it Maybe I will skim it just to see how it ends When I started this series I was pleasantly surprised and thought it was a fresh approach to the teen supernatural genre, especially since the overly beautiful mysteriously powerful love interest was female for a change and the boy in love with her was kind of awkward It didn t take long for me to get bored with the whole Lena Ethan thing just like the Edward Bella thing And, I am tired of being told how beautiful Lena is and how deeply in love and connected they are I don t buy it I do still like the character of Ethan At least I did until this third book Now he has no character Also, I believethat he is in love with Liv than with Lena I know the story tells us he loves Lena and can t live without her but the descriptive details of how he feels about Liv readlike real teen love to me than the hyped up melodramatic feelings he has for Lena And speaking of melodrama Every other paragraph in this story is some cryptic melodramatic statement that goes nowhere They follow Amma around listening to her say cryptic things and go to cryptic places and they find out nothing Just as in the previous books The plot reminds me of a convoluted, nearly comical, storyline I might see in a Scooby Doo Cartoon I am just plain disappointed in this series because many of the characters are great Ethan, Ridley, and Link specifically But, as I said too much melodrama and unresolved circular repetitive overblown plot lines

    I ve long felt particularly with the previous book Beautiful Darkness that the Caster Chronicles 1 don t need to each be 500 pages long and 2 don t even need to be a series A book or two could have probably done the job.But here we are at massive book 3 I do still very much like the series and considering the cliffhanger, am patiently waiting for book 4 Beautiful Chaos has many of the strengths of its predecessors the rich Southern atmosphere I practically read this series just for I ve long felt particularly with the previous book Beautiful Darkness that the Caster Chronicles 1 don t need to each be 500 pages long and 2 don t even need to be a series A book or two could have probably done the job.But here we are at massive book 3 I do still very much like the series and considering the cliffhanger, am patiently waiting for book 4 Beautiful Chaos has many of the strengths of its predecessors the rich Southern atmosphere I practically read this series just for that , the poetic writing and a cast of characters I care about who are both quirky and human That probably goes a long way to explaining the book s length the authors just want to watch these characters go about their not so normal everyday lives I really like those segments If only they weren t mixed in with the something terrible is going to happen trick the authors have pulled on their readers twice already.The plot sits in something terrible is going to happen mode for about 400 hundred pages Call it the question stage Then the reader gets about 100 pages to actually clear up the mysteries the answer stage and then the last 30 or so for the thing you were waiting for to really start the consequence stage And then the authors cut it short they end on a cliffhanger So I can only imagine that book 3 has really just been prologue to book 4.I spent too much time yelling at the characters, It s but didn t get sated until it was too late and the authors wouldn t even let me enjoy the payoff I was practically cheering the character to his her death just for the pure pleasure of something is actually happening The main push, of course, is for me to buy book 4 and I suppose it has worked in so far as I might be annoyed but invested enough in these characters to see them through.I don t know how to solve this imbalance between the slice of life stuff and the high stakes our love is destroying the world stuff At least, Beautiful Chaos handled it better than Beautiful Darkness
