Book Summery (Via Goodreads): Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena's Claiming. Even Lena's family of powerful Supernaturals is affected - and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What - or who - will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?
For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He's being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn't by Lena - and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself - forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn't know why, and most days he's too afraid to ask.
Sometimes there isn't just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there's no going back. And this time there won't be a happy ending.
Again, I am such a sucker for Southern paranormal romance books. Perhaps it's because I've only lived in the Midwest? I love the intrigue and the history of the South. This book captures it beautifully. I initially thought I would get tired of reading these books. I mean they are HUGE and really, how can an entire series revolve around a relationship? Well, I am so glad I am wrong! I love this series even more with every single book. I am extremely anxious to read the next book in the series.
“The mortal world is in a state of Beautiful Chaos and destruction, which will ultimately lead to an exquisite end.”
Cover Art Commentary:
I am such a sucker for this series. Not only are the stories amazing, but check out those covers! Even my mother, who does not like black at all, commented when she saw those covers on a recent visit. They are just gorgeous...Gothic and classic. What's not to love?!
