Book Blurb:
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.

My Review
I buy books whose cover are fascinating. And this one definitely has it to be considered 'fascinating', not only the cover, but the inside story as well. It impressed me so much that I wasn't able to track down time while reading it.
 “So often we only do what we think is expected of us, when we are capable of so much more.” 
It's about Clara, a part angel who's down to fulfilling her purpose on earth. Well, this was the first angel book I read and I'm glad I wasn't disappointed. I love the flow of the story, and the characters of course! I think I'm inloved with Tucker. He's sweet, and Christian too. But they are completely different and I don't hate Christian, I just prefer Tucker. The story has so many twists about Clara's family, her friends, and the ending? When I read the last chapters, I was like OMG!
“Tucker: "But she gave me the perfect gift."
Clara: "What?"
Tucker: "You.”
I definitely can't wait to read the next one: Hallowed. I'm craving for more twists!
