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.
As the second book in the Unearthly series (Unearthly reviewed here), I was a liiiitle wary to read this. Second books have been disastrous before, and although I've been proven wrong on many other occasions, I always worry a little. Especially with a book I enjoyed as much as Unearthly :) Anyhow, it was a stupid concern because this book pulled me in and didn't let go. And although I don't go searching for books that make me sob like a small child, when it happens, it's a good sign. (Okay, I'll admit that I'd rather laugh in a book, but whatever, that's cool). Anyhow, yeah, I bawled in this one. And I loved it. And I still think Tucker is awesome--even more so in this book. Don't get me wrong, I like Christian quite a bit, even more so in this book than the last, but Tucker is just so yummy. Like, wholesome yummy (why I'm thinking freshly baked wheat bread with butter and jam is beyond me, but it actually kind of fits. Or I'm just hungry). Anyhow, now I'm going to have to wait for-EH-ver for the next book. Which is sad. But worth it.
On a random other note, I re-read Unearthly right before starting Hallowed. I LOVE re-reading and do so all the time. My husband thinks I'm totally nuts for doing this (I mean, I already know what's going to happen!) but that doesn't matter. I like the story for the story, and the characters, and the world. Not for the ending. My question is, do you re-read?
