Wild Angel

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Reading this I couldn't help but be reminded of The Fallen, which isn't really fair because both books are based on a biblical story. It also isn't fair because I enjoyed Unearthly so much more there really isn't a comparison.

What I thought was interesting is that from the start Clara knows she's part angel, which means the story doesn't have to start with a big reveal scene. Yes, we do get to see parts of it through flashbacks, but because Clara already knows we're able to jump right into the story. I did love Clara's family dynamic with her mom and brother, and how they work together to hide their secret identity. I almost hate to make another comparison, but think of it as something similar to Pixar's The Incredibles

I know there's been a lot of hype about how Tucker is the perfect guy. And while I do like him, and he had his moments, I didn't fall head over heels for me. But maybe I'm just telling a little too old to fall for teen-aged boys? Ha!

Then there's the ending. I wouldn't really call it a cliffhanger, but overall the book does close the main story arc. But there are definitely several questions unanswered by the time you close the book. After finishing, I can't wait to read the sequel, which conveniently for me, was released a few weeks ago!

4.5/5

Today I'm linking up with Blonde Undercover Blonde for Book Club Friday!
