Book 3 (Book 1: Unearthly, Book 2: Hallowed)
The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life. Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California – and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place. As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.
So I’m finding myself really like action packed school adventures entertaining. I like the fact that they are solving issues and battling while maintaining a school life. This gives the feeling that even though there is supernatural things going on these people are just like us and deal with issues just like us (such as tests, making friends), in essence it gives some humanity to the otherwise supernatural story. Clara spends most of her time deciding whether she likes her apparent soul mate Christian or the boy she fell in love with from the beginning, Tucker. I feel so sorry for Christian in this book. In the first book I didn’t care for him much, I grew to love him in the second book, and by the third I was really hoping something good would happen for him (in terms of romance). I continue to dislike Angela a lot. A lot more angel training was done and you really get a feel for the types of characters (fallen angels, half bloods, three quarter bloods) and what they can do. While learning about all these types of angels and part angels the information is so brief that it doesn’t feel complete. The fallen angels were more incorporated in this book but there wasn’t much fighting or battles like I was expecting from this constant mentioning of wars. I’m finding these angel theme books (like Fallen by Lauren Kate) are more about the romance and self discovery then action. I don’t like the way the romances ended up at the end of the book. It was very expected and disappointing. I recommend this series and I wish there was more books that are more action based but I don’t think there will be.
