Goodreads Summary: In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .How many times on this blog am I going to have to say that I'm not a fan of angels? That I don't go out looking for angel stories, that they aren't my favorite of the paranormals, etcetera? Obviously a lot because they just keep coming. I happened to win this awhile back when it had just first come out and was crazy popular, everyone was raving about it and then some. I knew I'd read it sooner or later but as an angel story it wasn't at the top of my list, or even close to it. But then with the third and final book in the trilogy coming out I knew it was time for me to give it a chance.
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.
I am so glad I do because I love nothing more than being proven wrong. [When it comes to books anyway.]
Love Clara. I love that even as a angel not everything came easy for her. She had to work at things. She made the wrong decisions. She was human. She was flawed. And she loved. As for the rest of the cast...Personally I'm not a fan of Angela. There is just something about that girl that sits wrong on me. I just keep waiting for the knife in the back almost, you know? I adore Wendy though.
And then there were the boys...I was torn early on in the love triangle but ultimately I am so Team Tucker. The halfway point of the novel was where this became incredibly clear to me. Christian is just too golden boy for me. He's your brooding, not too open, and wildly popular. Whereas Tucker is plain ornery. And outdoorsy...which isn't normally my thing but he makes wildly appealing.
I cannot wait to get the next one. Its just that simple. I already have both on my Amazon wishlist, Kindle editions and marked "highest" on the want list. Oh yeah. NEED THESE BOOKS.
