Publisher Comments:

The past few years held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Yet through the dizzying high of first love to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she could no longer deny was that she was never meant to have 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 seemed 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.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must choose her fate once and for all.

Disquietus, April 27, 2014 (view all comments by Disquietus)
It’s been a couple of weeks since I read the conclusion of the Unearthly trilogy, and I’m still processing my emotions and yes, obsessing over this world and these characters. I tried to make this as spoiler free as possible, but I can’t guarantee anything so read at your own risk.

My feelings for the first ¾ of the book ranged anywhere from fascination to excitement to rage to elation. It was a roller coaster of emotion. The writing was still great and the story-telling detailing Clara’s journey of self-discovery and battle against fate still intriguing, but there was so much happening in this book it was overwhelming at times. By the end of the book though, you can definitely tell that Cynthia had a plan all along, and she does not disappoint.

Really, the only parts of the book I didn’t like were the exploration of the Christian/Clara relationship. Seriously. It’s the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5. And it doesn’t even have to do with the fact that I’m Team Tucker. I actually found myself sympathizing pretty hard for Christian, and even growing to like him. Some of the stuff involving him just made my heart hurt and want to hug him. But at the end of the day, I just felt like the whole “Christian and Clara are soulmates” thing was overplayed and pointless and it annoyed me enough to lower my rating.

Of course my love for Tucker continued throughout this book. While a good amount of the book takes place in California and therefore Tucker wasn’t physically present for much of it, he was constantly present in Clara’s thoughts, so it wasn’t a loss I really felt. I love the fact that Clara keeps popping up in his barn unintentionally. Those were definitely highlights for me. I won’t say that there weren’t times when he had me want to scream angry things at him, but this boy is just so sweet and real and he has this just, glorious moment before the climax of the book that had me swooning all over the place and if you aren’t Team Tucker after that I can’t be friends with you. He loves Clara so much and it’s beautiful.

This book was really heavy on plot development, and action. Angela, her purpose and her family history on the Angel side come to the forefront in a big way and it is just awesome, for lack of a better word. While she definitely will never be my favorite character, I actually didn’t hate her in this book and even came to respect her.

The action in the book was magnificent. There were a couple of nerve-wracking “OMG” moments, and one that nearly stopped my heart and yes, had me sobbing all over my precious Nook. The conclusion of the Black Wing storyline will forever be a favorite of mine, and the epilogue of the book had me swooning all over the place and naturally wanting more of these characters.

I’m definitely sad to see this series end, but I can’t wait to see what this author writes next.
