she addresses many of the questions that arise from this series is here and here Enjoy There aren t words enough to express how gorgeous this book is Fans of the Unearthly who might have worried whether Cynthia Hand could deliver a second installment that would do justice to the story need worry no longer This sequel lives up to and exceeds every expectation I had for it, and I only wish I could hand this book to every single would be author who is even considering writing a YA paranormal romance Because this is the template for what every teen romance sopho angel book should aspire to be.As the story opens, Clara is still recovering from the fire in which she went against her purpose as a part angel in order to follow her heart Her brother Jeffrey is still acting strange, Angela is helping Clara to test her powers, and eventually, we are introduced to an important congregation of angels and learn about their purpose on earth Best of all, we get some fabulous time with Tucker as he and Clara further enjoy what has to be one of the sweetest and truest young adult romances ever put to page I could not stop smiling as I was reading the story, because their relationship is just so warm and happy and perfect I love that, in the middle of all of Clara s bigger than life abilities and problems, she and Tucker still have such an amazing time together doing such blessedly normal and human things.We all knew what was coming next, though, right Christian was such an attractive enigma throughout so much of the first book that I was really hoping we d get to know him better in this one And while I dreaded the thought of this turning into a horrible love triangle situation that would devastate everyone while dishonoring them as well, I hoped against hope that the author would handle this tricky situation with as much honesty and grace as possible And boy, did she ever come through I am a huge fan of Tucker s, but Cynthia Hand somehow does the impossible and shows us how the flicker of friendship between Christian and Clara grows incrementally stronger everyday By the end of the book, he has shown himself to be a rock steady, understanding, and fun presence in Clara s life view spoiler not to mention an incredibly hot one D hide spoiler Hallowed is out I can t wait to re read it Oh, Cynthia Hand, how could you do this to me I feel like this book should come with at least a warning Something along the lines of WARNING This book may cause readers massive amounts of fangirling fanboying Do not be alarmed if you encounter symptoms of swooning, emotional instability, and immediate depression after reading Yeahcause that s exactly what happened to me Many of you may remember that I expressed in my Unearthly review how I was initially reluctant to read this series Angel PRN books seem to be the worst of the worst in YA literature So you can imagine my happiness when I come across this gem of a series If there were ever a reason needed as to why I voted for Cynthia Hand s Unearthly as Best Young Adult Fantasy Science Fiction, it would be Hallowed If you were thinking that Hand couldn t do it again, you were wrong First off let get this off my chest because it s seriously bothering meThis beautifully woven tale will appeal to fans of Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Aprilynne Pike Excuse me while I hurl Are you kidding me Stop it Please Do not lump this series in with those sorry books Hallowed, for starters, has a plot The characters have real depth The love interests aren t trying to kill Clara What it should have said wasFor fans of real YA PNR literatureBreathes Okay end mini rant.I think it goes without say that I loved this book I stayed up past 4am to finish this it Once again, I could not have predicted the outcome There are so many plot twists and mysteries revealed and it s not what you would expect at all And I have a sinking feeling that Hallowed is sure to upset quite a few fansIf you think I m going to sit here and feed you spoilers, sorry kids, not gonna happen However, I can tell you some of the things I LOVED about Hallowed The character developmentFans will be happy to know that we do indeed find out about Christian, Clara s mom, Angela, Jeffery s purpose and last, but certainly not least, Tucker Avery Cues the swooning Clara s mother definitely sees development And at first I found myself really irritated with her for keeping secrets, but by the end of the book, I couldn t bring myself to be angry at her any longer We were left with so many unanswered questions at the end of Unearthly, mostly thanks to Clara s mom, but rest assured, many are answered And of course, with answers we get even questions The love triangleI m sure you saw that coming, as did I, but here s the thing I liked it I usually hate love triangles because I find them a bit played out and predictable But it worked so well in Hallowed This probably has something to do with the fact that Hand wrote these characters so well Their relationships are very believable and heartbreakingly realistic We see a whole other side to Christian and Tucker It s rather easy to love them both because they both care deeply for Clara and respect her There are no semi abusive love interests here How about that The prose, the pacing, and the plotI never thought I could come to love the use of present tense prose, but I felt it was so perfect We are really able to connect with Clara on another level because of that, especially everything that she goes through in this book And she goes through a lot The simple sentences and Clara s ramblings really helped me feel everything Clara felt The pacing was a bit slower in this book than the last, but again, it works so perfectly Hand gives us the opportunity to let it really sink in The pacing just goes hand in hand with the plot, which too is very subtle At first you become eager to get to the end, but you will come to dread it So beautifully written.The dialogCynthia Hand, you are so slick and I love you for it Those Twilight burns you put in there Oh, yeah, I think you know how brilliantly awesome that was Before I moved here, I never got the whole love triangle thing You know, in movies or romance novels or whatnot, where there s one chick that all the guys are drooling over, even though you can t see anything particularly special about her But oh, no, they both must have her And she s like, oh dear, however will I choose William is so sensitive, he understands me, he swept me off my feet, oh misery, blubber, blubber, but how can I go on living without Rafe and his devil may care ways and his dark and only a little abusive love Upchuck. Yup, that s pure win right there The endingIt was so heartbreaking Clara just didn t get a break in this book and I felt for her so much I just wanted to hug her And at the end I felt like I needed a hug Hand, you had me crying at 4am I can t believe you went there in this book I mean, seriously, I was having a fit over here Shock I.CAN T.EVENDisbelief NOOOOO She did not just do that NOOOODepression How will I survive until 2013 I m doomed Doomed, I tell ya Cynthia Hand tore my heart out and made me eat it and I liked itP.S I recently found out there might be a TV show based on Unearthly.Ummm, Hollywood Let s get this one right, m kay An ARC was provided by the publisher But this in no way swayed my views on this book.Like this review Well, what are you waiting for Come visit my blog Cuddlebuggery Book Blog. Okay, so y all know how much I loved Tucker, courtesy of my initial review And trust me, that was like, a lot So it s a HUGE DEAL that somehow Ms Hand s made me like Christian as well.I don t even know what to say about this, except DUDE, Ms Hand s writing is remarkable Seriously.Initial review I AM SERIOUSLY CRAVING SOME TUCKER allright, that makes me sound sort of stupid, but really, how could anyone not adore him I mean, come on swoon
