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.

The Main Idea: THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. It includes a love triangle I actually like, drama, suspense, and romance. Pick it up regardless of whether you like paranormal or not!

Y’all… I love this series. Unearthly was great, but Hallowed blew me away! Who would have thought I would love an angel book so much.

When I read Unearthly, I couldn’t decide which team I was on. Team Tucker or team Christian?! But as much as I loved Tucker, I couldn’t help but feel that Clara was supposed to be with Christian. You find out more in this book which one she must/will choose. While a lot of people were saying there wasn’t a whole lot of Tucker in this book, I noticed him in there a lot! The battle for Clara definitely heats up between the two boys and her choice gets even harder.

One thing I loved about this book is that SO many questions were answered. It was actually a huge relief. I hate not knowing what is going on. Some of the revelations were seriously SHOCKING, and one particular revelation about had me in tears (which is big, because i NEVER cry in books). This revelation carries big weight in this story, and really puts a serious emotional twist on the book.

I could go on forever, but long reviews are rather…well… long. So, that is all I will say for now. But, please, if you have read Unearthly, go pick up Hallowed now!
