Book Review: Beautiful Chaos
TITLE: Beautiful Chaos
Book 3 in the Caster Chronicles
AUTHOR: Kami Garcia and Margeret Stohl
GENRE: Urban fantasy, witches, southern, drama, romance
PREMISE: Gaitlin is now full of uncertiny and Lena's birthday draws ever closer...
MY REVIEW: So you all know I love this series to death and this book is no exception. Yes, I give there are several southern stereotypes, Ethan doesn't really sound like a guy sometimes, and the romance between him and Lena is sappy beyond belief. But it all works. For one, these books are so well written. The authors do such a good job with character, pacing, keeping it interesting, snappy dialogue...everything. To me, Gaitlin is real, that's how good these authors are.
I love the characters and how the authors aren't afraid to stretch them and take them to places you don't want them to go (AMMMA!). This book in particular filled you with dread in each coming chapter so that you just knew something huge was about to go down and boy did it. Damn, talk about evil cliffhangers.
Thankfully there is another book coming. Sadly, it's not till October, which is WAY TOO FAR AWAY. I am still addicted to this series and still wholeheartedly recomend it.
WHO SHOULD READ: those that have read the first two books, southern fiction fans, urban fantasy fans, anyone inclined to pick it up
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five of Ridley's lollipops
