Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Unearthly undeniably surpassed my very low expectations.

 Being that it is one of those well-known Nephilim/Fallen angels novels like Hush Hush, or Fallen, I really thought my mind is very close to abandoning ship and fluttering away on its own because I'm getting tired of this concept and its popularity, as if it's the replacement to the vampire mania. But surprisingly, it's so much BETTER!

 One distinguishing factor that I like about the story is its originality. I like how the angels radiate their Glory, that they all have to fulfill their one purpose in life. And for the first time, the heroine, Clara becomes the powerful angel, and not some weakling who's only good at pining over a handsome guy. At first, I was frustrated because it's crystal clear that Christian is Clara's loveteam. He's the guy in her vision, the guy she's so obsessed with, and the guy she dreams of. That's why I thought that this would be the first time I would be siding with the other guy who's pathetically loving the girl who doesn't love him back. I was so distraught because Tucker is the right guy, and I can feel it...

 But luckily, I was right all along! Tucker is the one! I wanted to rejoice, to celebrate because he deserved it and he's such a great guy. I knew it, the first time he called her "Carrots," they'd be amazing, romantic, and inseparable! 

This is such a refreshing read that I became so excited for the next book. And I keep my fingers crossed that she still choose Tucker because she's having some issues and kind of getting confused.  

My Rating 4 of 5 stars!
