Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

**Spoilers for Unearthly**

Description: 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.

My Review: In a way, I'm kind of glad I didn't get around to starting this series when it was originally published. It's really nice to be able to read series books back to back and not have a year or two of waiting time in between! I was excited to be able start Hallowed soon after finishing Unearthly.

Second books in a trilogy can sometimes be disappointing, but Hallowed was great. There were so many
plot twists and reveals that I didn't see coming. The characters showed growth, and the love triangle got even more interesting...I don't have a clear favorite at this point. While there were some dark and emotional moments, there was still quite a bit of the humor that I loved in the first book. I'm really looking forward to Boundless!
