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 thoughts :I have no idea where to start !! I loved this book !! It's going to be very difficult not to give you any spoiler but I'm going to try.
Clara is a blood angel who lives a sweet life in tCalifornia but one day she has a vision of this boy trapped in a fire in the woods. She finds where he lives and sets as a purpose to save him (well it's a little more complicated than that ..) !!
I loved Cynthia's writing : I had the impression that I wasn't the one who was turning the pages, like the book wanted me to keep reading and compelled me to do so. I might sound CRAZY .. well I definitely sound crazy.
I swooned a lot of time while reading Unearthly. I'm such a girl. There are two hotties in this book ...and it's unavoidable, you'll love them both ! Personally I'm Team Tucker though Christian is awesome too !!
I don't know if I'm the only one but I loved all the passages set in mountain and in the woods ( especially when Clara is skiing) !!
This book is definitely a must read, well according to me !! I'm already craving for the next book in the series!

I also wanted to apologize because my reviews are always very short. I have three reasons :
- first, I don't want to give any spoilers when I review a book (so as to, the persons who haven't read it can still read the review).
- besides, I like reading a short review sometimes and having a general impression on the book, instead of a lot of details.
- finally, I'm not so good with writing my opinion of a book in English, it's still new to me.But I'm hoping to make some progress and I'm really grateful that you take time to read what I thought !! You're the best ;) !!
