Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Title: Unearthly
Author: Cynthia Hand
Series: Unearthly, #1
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: January 4, 2011

Synopsis: 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 a purpose, 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.

Verdict: This book had me hooked from the first page all the way to the very last. I absolutely loved it! I had honestly not expected to like this book because I have had plenty of bad experiences involving angels books. But Unearthly has changed my whole view on angels + books. From now on, any angel book I read will be held up to the very high standard of Unearthly. I absolutely cannot wait for the sequel! #TeamTucker

Rating: 5/5 Stars
