Review for 'Unearthly' by Cynthia Hand

Unearthly (Unearthly #1)Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had picked this book up multiple times at Waterstones, but found myself putting it back on the shelf again. However, I decided to take the plunge and buy it anyway. My Gosh! Was I surprised or what! I found myself glued to the pages, lapping up every word. The story flowed tremendously beautifully and by the time I looked up, I was already half the way through.

The main character, Clara, is not your typical teenager. She is a Quartarious, a quarter angel. What I loved about this book is that it is not your typical boy-angel-meets-human-girl-fall-in-love story. Clara is part angel and has a mysterious hint of her ‘purpose,’ through the means of a mysterious and recurring vision. She believes she is the one to save the mysterious boy from a disastrous forest fire. All of the characters are easy to like and they help the story to develop quickly.

Overall, I loved every minute spent reading this book. The plot was amazing, the characters were very well developed and honestly, this is one of my favourite angel books so far! It is a definite read. I’d recommend it to any angel lover.

5 out of 5!

  2. It was absolutely amazing! I'm so glad in the end that I picked it up and just went for it! It was not a disappointment, not at all. You will love it Sofia! :)
