Review: Hallowed (Unearthly #2)- Cynthia Hand


Hallowed (Unearthly, #2)


Title: Hallowed
(Unearthly #2)
Author: Cynthia Hand

Summary:
For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn't prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought.

Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

In this compelling sequel to Unearthly, Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are.

Review:
So… where do I start?

The story follows Clara, as she still tries to figure out her purpose (since you know, all angel-bloods have a specific purpose in life- and her purpose in saving Christian from the last book wasn’t it.)

But- soon, she starts having dreams- or are they visions- of a funeral. She knows almost immediately that someone she loves will die. Of course, that’s pretty heart-breaking, as she tries to figure out WHO will die. And let me tell you, I wasn’t expecting.

As for the twist – what her mom keeps hiding from her- I figured it out about 3-4 chapters before they told you for sure. There were all these little hints.

Anyways… like ive said a million and two times before, I hate triangles. Because you see, I love BOTH Tucker AND Christian, so its not really fair for only one to be the victor. Both have their pros, and basically no cons. But she is destined to be with Christian, and Tucker- though he is amazing, cant live in her world of crazy angelness.

There is some sadness in this book- obviously since someone dies. But I like how the author did it. There was closure, and she let you work up to it, so you didn’t bawl your eyes out.
That being said… kinda sucks that I feel like Tucker wont be the victor L like… why did she just NOT have him enter the picture. Books need tension and drama? Naw… who needs it? Lol

I like that we figured out a little more about Jeffrey (the brother) and im glad to know it wasn’t what I thought!!

So… ill have to by the third and final book now, since I have to know how it ends.
Overall, deeply moving, exciting paranormal romance!!

Rating: 5 Stars.
