Added to My Wishlist this week is:
The Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand
This series is one of my new favourite series! The writing is great, the character development is fun, the romance situation is not an insta-love situation (I cringe at badly written ‘insta-‘love’ situations), so we get to see the love develop, and the plot is so enticing and page turning that you just can’t put the book down! At the same time you want to take your time reading it because the book is just so addictive and amazing that you want to make it last. I highly recommend this series to you!
Unearthly – Book 1
In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees . . .
Clara Gardner has recently learned that she’s part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn’t easy.
Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there’s another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara’s less angelic side.
As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she’d have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.
Read my review for Unearthly here.
For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought.
Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her 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.
The third book in the series is due in 2013!
I have to say I love these covers, Unearthly is my favourite out of the two. That red dress is stunning! Which you all know as Unearthly was the first cover for my new posts ‘Favourite Cover Friday‘! Check it.
