Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

Title: Hallowed (Unearthly #2)
Author: Cynthia Hand
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 406
Source: Own Hardcover

My Rating:


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.


Rarely is the sequel ever as good as the original, but I am PROUD to say that Ms. Hand has accomplished the impossible! I loved this book MORE than I loved Unearthly... This series is a truly unique and interesting story. I was really afraid this book was going to be more of a filler (2nd books usually are, right?) but NOPE!

This book continues right after the big "fire" and revealing in book one. Fans of Tucker should worry not, for he is still around and gets plenty of Clara time. But the inedible does happen... the love triangle. Believe me when I say that I'm not the biggest fan of love triangles, but it worked perfectly in Hallowed. And that's saying something because I flippin' loved Tucker in book one, but guess what? I don't know HOW, but Ms. Hand managed to have me going CRAZY for Christian... Idk. My feelings are all over the place! This book is a perfect example of what all paranormal romances should be like!

I don't want to give too much away but the ending B. R. O. K. E my Corazon </3 WHY?! If you've read book one, but haven't had time to pick up book two, DO IT NOW! I put it off for sometime bc personally, book one was an ok read, but I'm kicking my own butt for not having picked it up sooner. If you read it soon, come back and comment... let me know how it treats you! :)
