Hallowed (Unearthly #2) by Cynthia Hand

This is a young adult paranormal romance novel (Rated PG-13)

(Four Stab My Hearts)

Book Summary

 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.

In this compelling sequel to Unearthly, Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are.

My Review
My heart bleeds on this one. I feel like the author took a bad plot turn like some other authors have done. Namely, Nightshade comes to mind.


We got a lot of Tucker in book one and not so much Christian. Now, it’s just the opposite.
And for me, I should have fallen for Christian. The guy has all the attributes of a swoon worthy guy. But he just doesn’t do it for me at all. So suffice it to say, I wasn’t happy how the book ended. And I was going to give up on the series. I’m not often one to do that. But I really didn’t like how things were going. Did it make sense to the storyline, yes. But I didn’t like it.

In fact, this is the third book where love triangles have come to bite me in the ass and I didn’t like it one bit. I still <3 love triangles.

Yet, I hear that even though this book made it seem that all hope was lost, apparently it isn’t. It doesn’t mean my guy will win, but I can read on if there is hope.

Audio Review                                                                 
Again recap à Samantha Quan did a wonderful job with the story. Again, it’s important to me that the character’s voices be distinctive so that I don’t have to focus 100% on the book and I can multi-task. Objective accomplished. 

My book boyfriend Tucker. (But I’m giving you Christian)

  1. I have that problem sometimes in books. The protagonist is falling for a guy, but I don't like him. It makes it hard to read!
