Beautiful Redemption by Garcia & Stohl

Book 4 in the Caster Chronicles series.  I have to say I was pretty disappointed in this one.  I almost felt they were trying to churn out the final book in the series or stretch it out for one more.  It really was slow moving and in the areas where the plot had potential to be suspenseful, they missed the boat.  Disappointing ending for sure.  Overall, I would give this young adult series a 3.5 out of 5.  The first book is the best one.  You could read it and just stop there. 

Summary from
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.
