So from that moment Clara's (and her family's) life starts anew, complete with a new town, new school, boys, questions, sadness and wings.
Although Unearthly couldn't escape the Young Adult characteristics of Love Triangles, Popular Girls and hotness incarnate, the novel made up for this with the wonderful fluid writing and sweet 'lovestory' romance and at times I was thankful for the YA Chracteristics when I needed something to get me glued to the book again. I must admit that occasionally some parts of the novel dragged on a bit, when all I wanted was chemistry at some times of 'over-sadness' in the novel.
Overall, Unearthly is a fresh, new different take on the ever popular Young Adult paranormal romance genre and it is amazing (*Hint* the second book; Hallowed, is even better)! Cynthia Hand has made fan-girls out of all her readers who are all anticipating her second and third books in the trilogy: Hallowed (Unearthly #2) and Boundless (Unearthly #3).
Boundless comes out January 2013
