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.

Now, What I Thought:

I actually already reviewed this series but decided to take it down because I don't think I really expressed how much I LOVED this book, to this day. 
It starts off with Clara, a 16-year-old girl. But not just a normal girl ohhh no! She's quarter angel. She gets this vision that all angels are supposed to have once in their lifetime, a purpose her mother (half angel) calls it. In the vision, something happens (I'm not going to tell you) and she encounters a boy. Her mother tells Clara that she has to move to this new place and new school to find the boy that’s in her vision. When I read that, thats when it clicked that, oh shit this vision stuff is pretty serious. So here she is, in a new town, new school all for this one boy, she THINKS she needs to save. 

My thoughts at first were like.. uh.. That’s a little extreme don't you think?  After that, it began to connect and make a whole lot of sense! She meets the mysterious boy but just like every boy that is a possible love interest, he's incredibly hot! So that leads us to her being all shy and smitten with him. Now I will say one thing, there is a love triangle in this book. But THANK THE LORD, Cynthia Hand did NOT make it as bad and annoying as other love triangles out there... Which leads me to ....... CARTER! Gahhh I was Team Carter since the fricking beginning! As soon as we get introduced to the cute farmer boy, I knew! And I hope if you HAVE read this book, you agree with me! If you haven't then please for the love of god read it :) This book keeps you interested the whole time! It's incredible!!
