Review: Beautiful Redemption
Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The 4th and final book in the Caster Chronicles, Beautiful Redemption begins a short time after Beautiful Chaos leaves off.
The last book left you in tears and wondering what happens next. Honestly, the series could have left off with the last book and been alright. But these authors took it further...
Is Ethan content to simply remain in the afterlife? What happens there? How does Lena and Amma cope with losing the boy they love the most? How does Ethan's father take it?
This book does NOT disappoint in answering all of those questions and more. The typical view on the afterlife is usually shared amongst books, but this book takes a different spin on it and I must admit, I absolutely love it.
Unlike the first 3.5 books, which focus on events from Ethan's perspective, this book switches back and forth from Ethan's to Lena's to Ethan's again, so you know what is happening in both the living realm and afterlife.
The ending... the ending will leave you happy and yet sad all at the same time. Does Ethan succeed? I will leave that for you to find out. And believe me, it is well worth finding out.
I highly recommend this book. It is a wonderful ending to the series and resolves a lot of loose ends.
