Student Guest Review: Unearthly

Title: Unearthly

Author: Cynthia Hand

Book Summary

Clara has known she was part–angel ever since she turned fourteen two years ago. But now she is finally getting visions of what her Purpose—a rite of passage for every part–angel—is to be, and it happens to involve a gorgeous guy. Of course, there is the raging forest fire surrounding them, too. When Clara’s Purpose leads her family to Wyoming, Clara finds the boy of her visions, Christian, but complicating her mission are her growing feelings for another guy, Tucker. As the day in her visions draws closer, Clara discovers that her Purpose may play into a larger struggle between angels and Black Wings—fallen angels who spread sadness and misery wherever they go. But when the fire erupts and both Christian and Tucker are in danger, who will she choose to save?

From debut novelist Cynthia Hand comes a riveting tale full of supernatural powers, forbidden romance, and the choice between fulfilling your destiny or following your heart.

Student Guest Review

I really liked Unearthly. The world of angels this book introduces you to is different from what I’ve read in other books, but still really good.  And this book was so funny; I was laughing through the whole book. I was laughing even more when these complete Twilight moments came along.  However, it bugged me how the main character is in the dark most of the time, so you, the reader, are too.  But the story does have a fast pace and keeps you on your toes, so that when things come to light, you are, “Whoa! Didn’t see that coming.”  It’s a wonderful book to start off the series; I can hardly wait to read the next one.

  1. I enjoyed this book, too, and I agree about being in the dark. I feel like there were so many questions left unanswered at the end! Very much looking forward to the sequel, though 🙂 Nice review!

  2. Wow, that paperback cover is gorgeous. That's the first time I've seen it.Yet again I love your student reviews. Nice to hear a real reaction outside of my adult brain.
