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.

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.


Beautiful Redemption Reviews

    OH MY GOD. I AM SO SORRY.I realised I had been putting off this review because writing it would have meant the end of of this. The love, the heart-break, the passion, the frustration, the components that truly make this a beautiful series.And all I have to say is DAMMIT XAVIER, where were you all the rest of the series??? :oI wasn't too sure about the book being from Lena's POV so much, as I kind of missed Ethan. He was a little more wry, and I thought it dragged on a little bit, which is the on [...]

    ****FINAL RATING: 3.90 STARS****CATCHALLWow. My first thought after finishing this was, what a stunning finale to the Caster Chronicles. I feel like I've been reading these books for years. They're so fantastic and gorgeous. This series just…wow. I mean, wow. I'm speechless really. Was this book perfect? Of course not. But I loved every moment of it nonetheless. It made my heart ache in a good way. I've become so connected to these characters, to this universe, that I have really found a home [...]

    3.5 StarsBeautiful Redemption is an odd book to judge.It's so much different than the other three books in the series; in this one, there's a very clear goal in mind. The book is one overstretched, boring journey -- however, what this book accomplishes with the long journey is the increase and build of tension. The end kind of just exploded in my face. I read the whole thing in one sitting, and while in certain parts I wanted to sleep, it was a fun journey mostly.The only thing that REALLY bugge [...]

  • Ilze Folkmane

    There is such a thing as sloppy writing, and this book, even the whole series, could easily be shown to aspiring writers as an example of such writing. Also, editors could take a note or two on how not to edit. I've seen booklets with more thought-out structures and better edited plot elements.I have no doubt that the authors are a pair of imaginative, creative and wonderful women, but I wouldn't go as far as saying that writing is their thing. If it is, they hide it pretty well. The amount of p [...]

    UPDATE 7/19/12The cover of this book has green letters. Green. FREAKING GREEN, which is my favorite color. And a staircase winding down, down, down. And they gave us the title, Beautiful Redemption. Redemption - The action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil: "God's plans for the redemption of his world". Hmm, maybe Ethan's the one getting saved. I hope Now, I have some new predictions for you guys. I recently reread Beautiful Chaos (my eyes were totally mistified by the ending) an [...]

  • Manon

    21st of October (1 day after reading Beautiful Chaos) : The book doesn't even have a name yet, but I just can't wait 'till October 2012 to read it - hope Ethan is alright! And it's so sad to think after that one, whatever its name, there won't be any other story with our Ethan, Lena, Liv, Amma, Link, Macon and co14th of February (almost 4 months after reading BC) : WE HAVE ITS TITLE! I'm actually much more excited now! But I'm wondering what does Beautiful Redemption's plot will look like, and I [...]

  • MarnieKrüger

    This was totally unexpected!I had a very general idea as to where this story was going, I even gave a little prediction in my review of Beautiful Chaos. But man was I wrong!This book just blew me away. It was so different- different is what caught me in Beautiful Creatures, so I guess that's what did it this time around as well.I love how it all played out, how every thing tied so neatly into this final installment of the Caster Chronicles. I believe this will be a series I read and re-read over [...]

  • Morgan

    To be honest I was a bit disappointed with the last installment in this series. I liked the other books but this one sort of failed to deliver. The authors used multiple points of view in this book switching off between Ethan and Lena. I think perhaps if they had switched perspectives more frequently instead of having large portions of the novel be from one pov or the other it would have added more of a dynamic feel. As it was the book felt stagnant and the plot was inevitable and predictable. I [...]

  • Jordan

    GRRRRR. Why did you have to stop it when Ethan jumps! Why! It took all I had not to cry. I love Ethan and Lena and if you Seriously kill Ethan, Lena will go CRAZY. Probably even worse than when she thought Macon was dead! You can't continue the series without Ethan it is crazy! Please please please please DO NOT KILL ETHAN. Or kill him and let the Wheel of Fate bring him back to life! But he has to live. If he dies they all die, because Lena will lose it and go crazy!

    Fabula Peracta Est.Scripta Aeterna Manent.After the story is written forever.I'm so sad to see this series coming to and end. Every single book was amazing and I'll forever cherish them.I won't lie, it was the most painful book in the series but at the same time it was the best and the most beautiful just like the first half of its title suggests.Ethan found his way back and there was a price paid (of course there would be) but everything ended beautifully and tragically all the same just as I w [...]

  • Jessica (Goldenfurpro)

    REVIEW FOR THE ACTUAL BOOK:This was an AMAZING end to the series!Yes, I said end!THIS IS THE LAST BOOK!!! Wait! No! Don't be sad!It was a satisfying ending, not one of those endings that make you go "OH MY CHEESE! What will happen next?! I NEED TO KNOW!!!!". Believe me I've read some of those "endings" to series and they did not make me happy! But this book? Again, it was satisfying!So I guess you wanna know about the book?Well i'm not going to give things away but I will say this:-It's differen [...]

  • Maham

    I have no idea why everyone is raving about this book so much. I wouldn't have given it any stars were it not for the fabulous array of supporting characters - Link, Amma, Ridley, Maconey are the only reason I kept reading this series after the second book.Lena and Ethan are one-dimensional in the sense that their love is all-consuming and all-encompassing. I always think those relationships are so unrealistic. The fact that Ethan wasn't even a little conflicted about the choice between staying [...]

  • Shreya (☆High Lady of The Night Court☆)

    I think these books only ever got better and better. The more I read about these people and their lives and the world of the casters and the mortals it only got better.This book just had a way of keeping me captivated - and after the ending of the last book I was dreading this book.Towards the end this book just gets extremely and touching and I've grown so fond of this world- like any series it gets so hard to say goodbye to the characters after going through so much with them.I give this book [...]

  • Sarah

    i cried myself to sleep last night.&a bit this morning while getting ready. i mean;WHAT. THE. FUCK?how can you continue the series if ethan`s dead?/: at least, that was the impression i got, i`m still a little confused on it.either way, the ending broke my heart.i cried for about the last 200 pages, when ethan figured out about the other half of his soul.i *knew* it was himm/: the one who is two, i mean.i`ve never been so devastated about a book before D: i need this *now* 3

  • Benjamin

    I'm feeling soyou know, disappointedFull review postedNice quotes, bad content. “I guess that’s the thing about a hero’s journey. You might not start out a hero, and you might not even come back that way. But you change, which is the same as everything changing. The journey changes you, whether or not you know it, and whether or not you want it to.”Spoilers from this and the books before!!!HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT This is the last book of the series and the worst (at least for me). It’s the [...]

  • Joy (joyous reads)

    Warning: Spoilers galore. Read at your own risk.There are books that you savour every page that you read and books that you simply couldn't wait to finish. Beautiful Redemption was a combination of both. I've started reading this book ever since it came out; and as you can tell, it took me a week or so to finally say goodbye. The ending, for us was bittersweet and I'm going to miss every single character of this book. If the ending to Beautiful Chaos left you in a fetal position, sucking your th [...]

  • Phoenix2

    The last book of the Caster chronicles takes place in the after life (?) I think, or at least where Ethan goes after he dies. The good part of the book is that the povs are swifting, so we get Lena's as well (yeah!!). The not so good parts are th first half of the book, where Ethan is trying to figure out what it's happening to him and accept it and then go back and see everyone and try to communicate with them and then finally (FINALLY) learn that he can go back and that's when the action start [...]

  • Cat's Review

    I just finished this today and I think I said, "What the H*LL?!?!" throughout the entire novel.This was the worst book out of the entire series. It felt like the authors just had to squeeze one more novel into the crazy mess they thrust upon the readers.Ethan died. That itself was pretty boring and unemotional. He jumped off the water tower to save Gatlin and the Mortal world and I really didn't feel a thing. Through his journey to get back to the Mortal world and among the living again, he had [...]

  • Steven

    RECAP: Ethan, the One Who is Two, sacrificed himself at the end of the last book to restore Order to the world. He awakens to find himself in the Otherworld a land of the dead, but not a heaven or a hell, just a limbo-y, in-between type place. And he's not alone. Here he finds his mother, Aunt Prue (a casualty of the Beautiful Chaos created after Lena's dual claiming), the Greats, and a few others. He quickly learns how to get a message to Lena, and discovers that his fate was altered. He sets o [...]

    BEFORECan't wait to read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHH!!!!! Must find out what happens to Ethan, and Lena, and Link, and John, and Liv, and Ridley, and Amma, and Macon . . . Can't wait until tentatively October!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the Movie!!!!!!!! LOVE Emmy Rossum!!!!! So much I can't wait for! FREAKING OUT!!!!!!Okay, glad I got that out of my system ;)AFTER(SPOILERS ahead)I've got to say, it wasn't my favorite of the series. I was so excited to read it, as you can see fro [...]

  • Annette Dellosa

    UPDATED 10/26/12Few of my theories were right all along. Well not exactly that accurate but they were as close as they could get. LOLAnyways, way to end the book series. At first it was slow considering the consequences Ethan needed to face. But I loved the 2nd half with Lena's POV. It was a nice change, reading from another character's POV. After that, I went all the way without breaks. I finished it 3am in the morning and my eyes hurt like hell. But the wait was worth it. I just wished there w [...]

  • Bookaholic (reads every mortal thing)

    The sole reason I gave this a 4 stars was because now this series is finally over. And the ending was the EXACT SAME THING!

  • Ryan

    Really? Amma had to go?This book was just alright for me. It had some good moments like Ethan's time in the Labyrinth and the fight against Abraham, but it couldn't even compare to action in Beautiful Chaos. I didn't enjoy the chapters from Lena's perspective, mostly because I think she as a whole is a flat and boring character throughout the entire series.I also didn't appreciate that Ethan came back to the mortal coil, for lack of a better term. I think this finale would've worked better if he [...]

  • Everley Sharp, the Clankinist

    I get it if people pre-rate a book five stars. But I'm just curious as to why people have added it to their to read lists if they've pre-rated it one star? It makes no sense. OH MY GOD. This was a fantastic series ender, something you don't see too often. Sad in all the right spots, happy in the right ones too, and not confusing or too arbitrary. Wonderful.

  • Ximena

    Aunque no puedo contar de la historia por posible spoiler, puedo decir que la saga me encantó, los personajes están bien hechos, los llegas a conocer perfectamente; la narración, al menos en mi caso, si logró que me imaginara las escenas tal y como las narraba; la historia de cada libro en sí me encantó; y el final de la sagaDIOS, ambas autoras supierón muy bien enlazar las cosas para que al final no quedara nada a medias. En el tercer libro de la saga, creí que acabaría de otra manera [...]

  • Victoria

    Wow.etty much just cried and then smiled (while still crying) through the entire ending of the book. H.E.A.V.Y. 5 down, as in "how my heart feels right now, Ethan Wate!"The one thing I kept thinking throughout this entire book was "poor Ethan!!", it is always something with this boy! I love Ethan Wate. Although Beautiful Redemption was a little slow through a lot of the story, I kept reading for Ethan because I had to know how it was going to end for him. He's just had to give up so much in such [...]

  • Gerasimos

    I had mixed feeling as I was starting this. I was both happy and sad. Happy because I would get back to the caster's world, a world that I love. Sad because I would not be able to do that again, since this is epilogue of the series.Fortunately, this was a beautiful conclusion to a series that I love with all my heart. Was it perfect? Was it flawless? No. Some things could have ended differently, some others were rushed. But all the characters got what they deserved and all the plot threads got t [...]

  • AthinaB

    To audiobook ήταν υπέροχο! Η εκτέλεση, ο θεατρινισμός των φωνών και μερικά εφέ το έκαναν θεσπέσιο.Το βιβλίο από την άλλη το βρήκα πολύ λυπηρό. Ακόμα και σε στιγμές αισιοδοξίας και "νίκης" των ηρώων υπήρχε πάντα μια σκιά. Δεν λέω ότι δεν μου άρεσε, μάλιστα με συγκίνησε με πολλά σημεί [...]

  • Melissa Chung

    Ohhh what an ending. Of course it isn't the perfect ending I wanted, but nothing is perfect. 4 stars for the finale and 4 stars for the series.In this final chapter of the caster chronicles we witnesses every character fight against their demons. We follow Ethan on his journey to retrieve his page in the Caster Chronicles. We see what it is like on the other side. How the dead "live". We see that we are not alone in the Mortal world, that our loved ones keep an eye on us, even though they can no [...]
