Beautiful redemption - Review

The caster chronicles book four.
Available now.

What's it about?

Is death the end . . . or only the beginning?
Ethan Wate always dreamed of leaving the stifling Southern town of Gatlin.
But he never dreamt that finding love with Lena Duchannes would drive him away. Lena is a Caster girl whose supernatural powers unveiled a secretive and cursed side of Gatlin, so powerful it forced him to make a terrible sacrifice.
Now Ethan must find a way to return to Lena - and Gatlin - as she vows to do whatever it takes to get him back. Even if it means trusting old enemies or risking their loved ones' lives.
Can Ethan and Lena rewrite their fate and their spellbinding love story in this stunning finale to the Beautiful Creatures series?

My review
 (Warning: may contain spoilers from the previous three books.)
Having been with this series from the beginning I was sad to see it end but excited at the same time, especially after what happened at the end of Beautiful chaos, I couldn't imagine how they would bring back Ethan and have everything work out by the end of the book.
I'll admit, I didn't love the middle two books as much as I did the first so I wasn't sure what I'd be getting with Beautiful redemption, turns out what I got was something epic! I really enjoyed every gripping moment following Ethan's journey to trying to get his life back and even a brief few chapters from Lena's perspective as she tries her best to help him.
Beautiful redemption was an unpredictable adventure that kept me hooked until the end, I think it ended - both the book and series - perfectly, despite some sad events, they felt necessary to the story and everything was in order, so to speak.
However, I wish I'd gotten around to reading Dream dark before I picked this up because there are a lot of references that I assume are to it throughout Beautiful redemption that made me feel like I'd missed something, so I would suggest reading Dream dark first.
Ethan still remains my favourite ever male lead, the things he'll go through for the girl he loves is impressive, to say the least, and he's a perfect southern gentleman, so polite and caring, he's how I'd like my son to turn out when he grows up.
The Caster chronicles has been a fantastic series and I can't wait to see what the authors come up with next, either together or separately.

My thoughts on the cover
I really like the birds eye view of the spiral staircase on this cover, its an interesting image and I like the way the green has been used and how the whole series matches together nicely.

Favourite quotes
'I love you, Ethan. I won't forget you. I'll never forget you, and I'll never stop loving you.'

'She slid into my arms, falling into sobs that beat against my chest. I don't know which one of us was crying harder. I'm not even sure we remembered to kiss. What we had went so much deeper than a kiss.'
