Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

From Goodreads:
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?

My Review:
This was my first angel book and boy am I glad I started with this one.

Things I Liked:
1) Clara- This girl was just so awesome. She was not whiny like some girls tend to be in YA books and I appreciated that quality about her

2) Christian- I really had some doubts about him because he seemed like a jerk but he really grew on me and I loved him by the end

3) Tucker- I liked him from the beginning.  You will know why if you have read this.

4) Angela-  I loved girl. She made some questionable decisions but I let her slide on those things.

Things I was not fond of:
1) I felt like this book was slow at times and not alot happened. I will be continuing this series because I really enjoyed the characters and the writing.

My rating: ♥♥♥♥ 


  1. Ooooh, I really want to read this book now! I was a little hesitant with the whole angel thing, because I've read tons of books and angels and it's gotten a bit repetitive, but this sounds like an original read. Great review!
