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.
Unearthly is in one word AMAZING it took my breath away. After reading Torment and disliking it then not even being able to finish Halo i had given up on angel books but Unearthly is a breath of fresh air and made me love reading about angels again. Cynthia Hand has wrote a beautiful book that I will love for a long time to come. Clara is such a likeable character and I really enjoyed her POV. Tucker has become my all time favourite YA book crush i love him and Clara together. I really can not wait to see what happens in the next book and to see how they top the cover as the cover for Unearthly is beautiful!
