Review: Unearthly

Unearthly (Unearthly, #1)
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

  • Pub. Date: January 2011
  • Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
  • Format: Hardcover , 435pp

Book blurb:

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 apurpose, 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.

My Review:

Cynthia Hand has created a lyrical master piece with the debut release Unearthly. The story and characters are fluidly written and amazing. Once their interactions begin to progress in the story they suck the reader and you cannot put this book down.
Unearthly brings us the story of Angels here on earth and what drives them.
It is the story of a family who is moving to fulfill a purpose, a destiny that does not necessarily have an end in sight.
The author creates an amazing new world, a new reality that will engross readers young and old. These pages were beautiful and amazing to read. I loves the flow of the story and the character's interactions with each other.
The end of the book completes this part of the story while at the same time drawing us deeper into the series.
Unearthly, was truly a magnificent story with compelling characters that was beautifully written.
