Publisher Comments:

Haven Terra is still recovering from an internship that brought her literally to the brink of hell when a trip to New Orleans leads to more trouble. There, while taking part in a student volunteer program, Haven and her friends Dante and Lance run across an enclave of devils known as the Krewe.

     These shape-shifting devils are more reckless and vicious than any Haven, Lance, and Dante have encountered. Yet the friends soon discover that their French Quarter housemates are also angels in training, and together they must face off with the Krewe in their quest for wings.

     But Havens resolve is tested when Lucian, the repentant devil with whom she was infatuated, resurfaces and asks her for help escaping the underworld. Can he be trusted? Or will aiding him cost Haven her angel wings—and her life?

Synopsis:

In the thrilling sequel to Illuminate, angel-in-training Haven Terra heads to New Orleans, where she faces off with a formidable group of demons known as The Krewe.

Synopsis:

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.

Disquietus, April 27, 2014 (view all comments by Disquietus)
I was a little nervous going into this book after how much I loved Unearthly, mostly because the middle books of trilogies tend to be disappointing, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised by how good this book was, despite the fact that it was also utterly heartbreaking.

The heart of this book was the development of the world of the angel-bloods, as well as some serious character and relationship development. A lot of information is thrown at the reader, including some pretty interesting and intriguing surprises about Clara’s own family. The writing remained strong, and you can definitely tell that Hand has a well thought out plan for this world and these characters, even though you’re still not quite sure what it is and whether it will be good or bad.

Clara and Tucker continued to cause me a lot of feelings, both swoony and heartbreaking. These poor kids definitely do not have it easy, but who said love is easy right?

I also had a lot of feelings about Clara and her mom and Jeffrey and how much I love this family. The story line involving Clara’s mom was surprising, but very well done.

The only parts of the book that I didn’t enjoy was the development of the Christian/Clara ~soulmate story line. My indifference to Christian turned into outright hatred in this book, because he is just a pushy self-righteous little brat who can’t take a hint. I get where he’s coming from. I do. I understand that he’s in love with Clara, and thinks they are ~meant to be. But I don’t think that justifies him having zero respect for her feelings and her relationship with Tucker. Can you tell that I have a lot of opinions about this?

Overall, while I enjoyed this book, well except for that one Christian related moment that caused me to throw my Nook across the room in a rage, it didn’t stand out for me. There was plenty of great plot/character/relationship development, but there wasn’t as much action as I would have liked.
