Cynthia Hand went from being an author I hadn't heard of and maybe kind of wanted to try and read to OMG CYNTHIA HAS ANOTHER BOOK OUT AND I MUST HAVE IT. All in the course of one little book you may have heard of, Unearthly.
The angel thing has kind of reached vampire status. It's been there. It's been the rage, it's had its moment and now I look at them like, Meh. If I get to it. Unless its freaking Cynthia Hand. (Or Richelle Meade, kudos on the *Squee* moment for us VA fans also!) I want to take a quick trip into her brain and just poke around. How does she do it to us?! She's amazing.
Clara has a LOT on her plate. Keeping track of baby bro, thinking non stop about *swoon* Tucker and trying to figure out her feelings with Christian - OH and then there's Angela and we all know she's aaaaaalll over the place.
But she's doing great, she's making friends and going to school and deciding what could be next in her life. And then Angela's vision. And her own. And why is there fire? And why does Christian seem so shaken?
I'm not sure how exactly Cynthia finds a way to give us enough hints that our curiosity is constantly peaked throughout the books, but never actually gives anything away. But she does. Between the visions and the significance behind every last word, you won't pick this novel up and even think about skimming a chapter or a paragraph - you will want to soak in every last detail.
Especially where Tucker's involved. Sorry guys, I know there are a lot of you that were hoping he was gone for good, but while I had sat on the fence a good portion of the time in this series...there's just something about Tucker. I loves him.
I can also promise that for every moment you swoon or think of one of the boys, you will also find yourself on the verge of tears if not actually crying. From super playful moments to the darkest and most filled with despair, you will experience all of it. Scenes that she has rethought and written and given to her readers will stay with you long after you close the cover for the last time.
She's worked too hard for me to give anything away. Just know that you will laugh, cry, swoon and mark out for how epic these characters are. We've all been blessed to know them on this journey! It's been quite a ride and I for one, am glad I decided to jump on.
