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.


There were just so many things that irked me about this book. A lot. 

But there were a lot of things I also really liked. Most of all, the ending. It was very beautiful and philosophic and meaningful and succeeded where the other books before it failed. It said something. It meant something, and it wasn't just trying to be deep, it actually was. It changed my perspective about a few things, and that ... is beautiful. Beautiful Redemption, because with this final installment, the series redeemed itself for all the parts of nonsense and aggravation it put me through at times.

Anyway, a breathtaking, wonderful, amazingly done finale. I approve, all in all.
