Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
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.
I always cry at the end of this book. And, yes, this book is mainly about Ethan. Though, there is a lot about Lena, too. I always get mad at this book. This whole time, through out all of these books, Ethan and Lena's love for each other is said to get them through anything. But then you get to this book, and it's like their saying "no, we were wrong, not everything" and you're sitting there pissed off and balling your eyes out.....or at least I ball my eyes out every time. I like all the things Ethan can do. That there is things he can do even though he's still mortal. Not a lot of authors make mortals have certain powers also. They usually twist it with the "oh they're not mortal after all" set up, but Garcia and Stohl didn't do that, which was cool. The first time I read this book I wanted to burn it. And if the series ended there I probably would have. But there is another book, and they better redeem themselves!!! Because what happened at the end (dont want to give it away) cant be the end.
