REVIEW: Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia (Caster Chronicles, Book 3)
Beautiful Chaos Is the THIRD book in the Caster Chronicles series…there may be spoilers ahead for those who have not read the previous two books!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Now that Ethan has Lena back, he is ready to go back to school and start his junior year. Going back with them are Ethan’s best friend, Link, who is now part Incubus, and Lena’s cousin Ridley, who is no longer a Siren. This makes for some very interesting school days, to say the least.
Unfortunately, all is not well in Gatlin since the Order of Things has been disrupted. There are swarms of bugs all over town, record high temperatures, and no one seems to be able to grow any crops…even the grass in the front yard is dead. It’s up to Ethan, Lena, and the rest of their friends and family to find out how to reset the order and make the world right again.
Of course, this would be easier if Abraham and Sarafine were not still around and trying their best to destroy the town and Ethan along with it. Abraham is on a quest to find his protege John Breed, and Ethan must figure out not only how to keep Abraham and Sarafine at bay, but also just why John is so important to them.
Yes, there are a LOOOOOTTT of things going on in this book. But that’s why I loved it. The story kept me compelled the whole way through. I love every single character in these books, and I am now very invested in their stories and the reasons behind why they do the things they do.
Link, now being part Incubus, is referring to himself as the Linkubus. I find that pretty hilarious. He can now take his pick of any girl in town, but it doesn’t matter. Ridley still has a hold on him even though her Siren powers are long gone. I love the dynamic between these two, and in a way I think their relationship is more entertaining than Ethan and Lena’s.
Ethan and Lena are back together now, but that doesn’t mean things are all good, all the time. They sometimes throw jabs at each other for events that happened while they were apart. You hardly ever see this in a book, and I loved it, because it made their relationship seem more realistic. This happens in real people’s lives all the time. People just can’t let go of the past.
It did take me a little while longer to read this book, but that’s because it was so long! That’s OK…I loved every single page and I cannot wait for more.
