Beautiful Chaos

Ethan Wate just hasn't been the same since he died over the summer. Sure his girlfriend Lena and Amma brought him back from the dead, but things just weren't the same. The things that he used to love like chocolate milk and Amma's cooking just don't taste the same. Things that he used to hate like school cafeteria food do taste good. Luckily Lena's the same, except that it's hard for Ethan to touch her now, it sort of feels like he's going to die. He's not sure just what's going on with him, and it doesn't help when he starts forgetting things that he's known all his life. But Ethan can't really take the time to worry about himself right now. The whole town of Gatlin is suffering from a huge heat wave that has no end in sight, and it's full of Lubbers, crickets that are eating everything in sight. Ethan and Lena are pretty sure that the natural disasters going on are a result of Lena's breaking the order of things when she claimed herself last summer as both light and dark. But how do the go about fixing it? And just what is Amma up to? These questions and lots more will be answered in the 3rd book of the Beautiful Creatures series. I liked the story of this book. I think that I liked the other two more, but the story in this book was amazing. The one thing that I didn't love was all of the language added to this one. I didn't remember the others having quite as much language as this one did. It bugs me that authors think they need to add a bunch of language to make their stories more readable. For me it does just the opposite!
