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.
After the drastic results of Lena’s claiming it is more than the caster world that is in chaos. Everything in the mortal world has turned upside down. And to make things worse it is more than the song of the Eighteenth Moon is full of warning for Ethan.
Everyone is acting weird. Ridley seems to have impossible power, Amma has stopped making pies and Ethans father has decided to write a book and hang out with his English teacher. These things seem like nothing but they are a sign of the terrible things that are still to come.
I want to review this book more but as with when reading the book I feel a lack of enthusiasm for it. There was nothing exactly terrible about it I just didn’t feel drawn into the plot. As with the other books in the series the writing is very easy to read and once I finally sat down to read it I got through it fairly quickly, it just took me a while to get to that stage. The plot has plenty going on but in a way it is almost too much. I kept trying to figure how how parts of the story would become important later on but much off it tailed off into something that wasn’t that exciting.
I think my overall review of this book is that it is sort of unnecessary. It has added in a new dimension to the overriding problem we have been trying to solve since the first book and I would this was the last book in the series as the ending of this book means I will need to get the next one to find out how it all finally resolves itself.
