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 from the Great Barrier, 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's not Lena -- and the mysterious figure is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself -- forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and he's afraid to ask.

Sometimes there's no going back. And this time there won't be a happy ending.
SPECIAL BONUS: Includes "Dream Dark," a thrilling short story set before Beautiful Chaos. When Link joined his best friend, Ethan Wate, on a quest through a mysterious network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, he knew the journey would be dangerous. But he had no idea it would change his life forever.

Our customer reviews

My review: This has been my favorite thus far in the series. There are so many twists and turns and I was always trying to guess what was going to happen next. It was action-packed and the secret quotient was definitely raised. The weaving themes of love and sacrifice, both romantic and not, was beautiful and it makes the reader look just a little differently at them. The characters were as strong as they have ever been, as real as possible when created within the pages of a book. I was swept right along with them through their highs and their lows. I actually did my fair share of crying, ugly crying, at points! Things to love about Beautiful Creatures... --The mood. This is most definitely NOT a "feel good" book! But I liked that because it was raw and heart wrenching and real. The feelings that it evoked were intense and engrossing. --The ending. Not that I wanted the book to end, but the cliffhanger was good! Things I wanted more of... --The supporting characters. So much of this centered on Ethan, which was great, but I have grown to enjoy a lot of the less central characters. My recommendation: Love, love, LOVE so definitely pick this up!show more
