Summary from 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.
My Review:
     This book is by far, the best in the Caster Chronicles series so far. As soon as I read the first few pages, I settled into the world of Gatlin, South Carolina and loved every minute of it. As one of my favorite book series', these books never cease to amaze me.
    Every character in this book seemed to come into focus more in my mind this time around. Even the bad ones like Sarafine and Ridley. I saw things that had been previously covered up by time and darkness, which let me really understand their humanity.
   In certain parts, I felt like I could easily predict what was going to happen or who was going to do what, and then the book went and changed what I predicted. I loved this, because it added so much more surprise when Lena, Ethan, and the others deciphered the Shadowing Song and the climax happened. It was such and exciting and impossible realization, which is what I love about reading the works of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
    Every person in this story grew so much throughout the journey and hardships they all faced. I love it so much when characters are like that. With Ethan especially. This series, for sure, has the absolute best cast of characters. Ever.
    Things were so out of control and the Caster world was in a grave collision with the Mortal world, which made for quite the uproar among the church people (everybody) in Gatlin. This added a lot of excitement and suspense. I was always asking myself how much longer Gatlin could withstand the weight of a broken Order. Ethan seemed to take it all in stride, however. He seemed to be fairly calm about the whole situation until he witnessed Amma behaving suspiciously and Abraham making appearances. But what with everything he had going through previously, that didn't surprise me, really.
    So many things in this story went right and wrong, all leading up to one great and devastating ending, with the cliffhanger of the century slapped on top. This is the only thing that frustrated me. I think it is good to be frustrated sometimes during a book, though. It means that the author is getting to you and you have developed a genuine understanding of the people and setting.

Beautiful Chaos. Ethan is losing his memory, favorite foods, and people that he knew he doesn't anymore. It started out with chocolate milk tasting too sweet then he forgot a person he knew since kindergarten! He is trying to find out why. The evil Abraham is the most powerful Incubus (like vampire) and is looking for John Breed (Incubus) and thinks Ethan is hiding him. Abraham thinks the worst sin any caster or incubus can commit is falling for a mortal human. He is out to kill Lena and Ethan, they're not so sure that they can escape death this time.
