In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.
Once again, I have to say, oh my goodness. I was really not expecting this book to be this good! But it was wayyyy over my expectations. How many times do I have to say I loved this book?!?! Ok, first of all, Tucker, oh my gosh, Tucker was THE MOST interesting guy I have ever read about. He's like, PERFECT! And then there's Christian, who, I have to say, wasn't who I thought he was. (If you've read the book you'll get what I mean.) From the very first sentence of the book, I was hooked. I couldn't set it down, I read for almost 3 hours straight, not willing to put it down, until I finished it. That's how good it was. Here's something that's gonna sound kinda weird, Cynthia Hand did such a good job at describing the atmosphere and keeping us interested, that I almost forgot I was reading a book. It felt like I was really there, I wasn't aware of anything around me. Just me and the world of Wyoming in the book. I can't even explain how good this book was! I was NEVER, EVER, bored. EVER. Did I make that clear enough? And even though I was a little shady about reading another angel book, this book is WAY BETTER than it sounds. So don't look at the cover, don't read the summary, just pick up Unearthly and read it! The ending was really really good too, even though the last sentence kind of confused me, but other than that it resolved everything without leaving me hanging and it was just perfect. I have nothing else to say other than, READ UNEARTHLY!
This book deserves...
