Series: Unearthly #1

When Clara Gardner learns she's part angel, her entire life changes. She now has a purpose, a specific task she was put on this earth to accomplish, except she doesn't know what it is. Her visions of a raging forest fire and a mysterious boy lead her to a new high school in a new town but provide no clear instruction. 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 the boy in her vision and the boy in her life, 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?

I'd heard so many amazing things about Unearthly I just had to read it. Although I'm pretty tired of all the angel books. And I'm so glad I did. Every person telling you this book is amazing is right! It is absolutely awesome! 

Clara is an angel, with the wings, inhuman strength, speed and powers. It isn't that long ago when she discovered herself she's an angel and she's still struggling with it. And then she starts having the visions of a boy in a forest on fire. Her mother decides they have to move so Clara can get to know the boy in her visions. 

I can officially tell you I'm Team Tucker! I even counted the pages until he made his appearance! He's everything everyone says he is. Handsome, cute and most of the time a huge pain in the butt! Yes, I'm sorry, but I just had to get it out there. I almost cried when he was so mean to Clara and thought everyone else had just gone insane in liking him! But luckily, he turned out to be amazing!

This is definitely the best series about angels I've read. Although I have only read the first book so far I'm already positive about this. Cynthia Hand's view on angels is so refreshing and I love her writing style! And those covers: just gorgeous! I really hope to read the second book soon!

Put your dislike for angel books aside and read Unearthly. You'll love it!


  1. I normally avoid angel books, it just isn't my preferred genre, but this series shows clearly that even a book in a genre you don't like can be amazing. I love the Unearthly series. It's brilliant! I gave all 3 books 5 stars and this is certainly my favourite angel series!

  2. TEAM TUCKER!! Oh yeah!! Christian just freaks me out. I loved this book! Definitely brought me back from the YA angel book slump. I was trying to stay far, far away from angel books but I'm glad I read this one. :)
    Awesome review!
