"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."

My Thoughts:
It took me a while to connect with the story and the characters in Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. However towards the middle I was more into the story and couldn't wait to pick up the book. I was torn between both of the lead male characters. I loved the ending. Cannot wait for the sequel to see what becomes of these characters and the storyline.Also Unearthly is a debut novel of 2011. 

If you are in love with angel novels, you should check this out. It it a great novel. I think being sick might have clouded my judgement just a bit. Hallowed, Unearthly's sequel is set to be released next year.

4/5 stars, 

Happy Reading, Ashley
