Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

This book is beautiful, Cynthia Hand delivered the second book in the Unearthly series and nailed it. This book has many beautiful moments with divine descriptions of feathered wings, flying and 'glory' that makes you see the purity of angels and marvel at how while dealing with a delicate subject and using in a story Cynthia Hand was able to show justice to angels.

This book in many ways I found heart breaking and turning the last page nearly ripped my heart in half. This book was tender and heartfelt and the relationships in this novel where emotional and truthful. I found this book moving and life changing towards many subjects that this book dealt with.

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.
While reading this book there are bits I must warn you will need to keep an open heart too, other then that a beautiful read.
