Unearthly follows Clara, a girl who’s part angel and part human. She keeps having a vision of saving a boy, Christian, from a forest fire. That vision is her “purpose”. Clara moves from sunny California to wintery Wyoming to fulfill her vision. But then things start to go awry when she realizes that she’s falling in love with Tucker.
Unearthly was a lot different from the other angel books I’ve read. And by different, I mean different in a good way.
Clara is a great protagonist! She interesting, funny and quirky. In the beginning of the book I didn’t really like the male lead. He was…too perfect, but when another male lead came along I fell head over heels for him instead. My only real complaint was that the ending left me really confused. I didn’t really get any closure from it. For the most part the plot was fast paced and each page made it impossible for me not to turn the next—not to mention the really good writing, and awesome dialogue. I highly recommend that you check out Unearthly.
