The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life.
Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California - and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.
As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.
In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must decide her fate once and for all.
Finally got my hands on a copy of the final installment in this awesome series, and im so glad I did.
The story starts a few months after Hallowed ends. (Apparently there is a novella filling in the blanks from the missing summer, but I haven’t read it yet.) Anyways, Angela, Christian and Clara have enrolled in Stanford and have started school there, ready to try to live a life without angels for a little while. A normal life. But, this doesn’t last long because the whole reason for them going to Stanford is Angelas Purpose is there.
Jeffrey, Claras younger brother, has left and decided to do his own thing for a while, which clearly upsets Clara. Clara and Christian consider having a thing, but she is still caught up on Tucker.
Then things get weird. Angela gets pregnant- and the father is a mystery. Jeffrey has a new girlfriend, who isn’t all she is supposed to be. Christian and Clara cant work out their thing, since she is still only thinking about Tucker. Samjeeza has been showing up, non-stop, basically stalking Clara for stories about her mother (since he is still in love with her) And Michael, Claras dad, has started showing up to train her to sword fight.
When things start getting really sticking though, is when someone is captured and taken to Hell. The group of angel-bloods that Christian and Clara are a part of decides not to try and rescue the kidnapped friend, they try to find a way to do it themselves.
The story was very captivating. I enjoyed reading it from start to finish. And I gotta say, through the first 2 books, I was Team Tucker all the way. But he was barely in this book at all, that I gravitated to Team Christian by the middle of the book. I wont say who she ends up with, though, because I don’t want to spoil it.
