Hallowed is a much better book than Unearthly, in my opinion. It has a lot to say about love and loss, and it does it in a profound way. I found myself quite close to tears on many occasions, as Clara struggled to come to terms with the knock on effects of her choices at the end of Unearthly.

In Unearthly, Clara fell in love with Tucker, despite the attentions of Christian, and she chose Tucker over Christian. This time she is with Tucker, and he has to deal with the realities of loving an angel-blood like Clara. In addition there is Christian, who understands so much of what Clara is going through and knows how to be there for her almost innately; he really melted my heart this time. I didn't much like Christian at the end of Unearthly, but he really 'manned up' this time and won me over with his strong, silent type ways. (And cute attempts to cheer Clara up with snow-ball throwing and insane skiing!)

There was a lot to like about Hallowed. The scenes between characters felt really real, the emotions involved were strong and not at all 'cheesy', and the way that Clara coped with the approaching loss of a loved one was admirable and understandable. I really believe that the author shared some quite raw experiences with us, and I was surprised by the depth of this YA fiction book. It certainly has some lessons in how to cope with grief within, and I think it will resonate with the readers on a different, deeper, level than Unearthly.

In this book we also get to find out more about angel-bloods and Clara finally gets some proper answers to those questions she has been asking her mother for what seems like ages! Jeffrey's character also sees some significant developments, although for much of the book his activities are secretive and generate suspicion.

One of the best books I have read this year. It had me laughing, smiling and crying. A brilliant sequel that you should not miss.

Synopsis: 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.

I found this book extremely addictive and couldn't put it down for more that 5 minutes before giving into temptation. The plot was well thought through and carefully planned. I enjoy Cynthia's writing style, very dramatic.

New characters are introduced. Old enemies are back.

This book has left me breathless and desperate for more. There's so many ways this story can go and I'm sure that it will be unexpected and just as exciting as this one has been!

I loved "Unearthly", really I did, it was a much more interesting take on Angels than any other YA book I'd come across so I was hoping that "Hallowed" would continue the trend but couldn't help but worry that it would be a middle-book-syndrome flop. Luckily for all of us, "Hallowed" was not only as good a read as "Unearthly" but leaps and bounds more interesting to read (shocking since we've already been given a lot of the surprises).

I felt like throughout the book Cynthia Hand was dropping subtle hints about why she's even bothered writing this series. There are some pretty deep messages woven in about family, discovering yourself, secrets, lies and betrayals and some really sensitive topics like dealing with loss which Hand seemed to me to deal with in a delicate (not preachy) way. I loved that her message was only really there if you looked for it rather than rammed down our throats and really respected her for that. Additionally, I think she handles the subject of God and more notably heaven very well and again in a way that, if you didn't believe, I still think wouldn't rub you up the wrong way.

Following on from the events of Unearthly, Clara appears to be having a bit of an internal battle between who she loves and who she wants to be with. Although it might seem simple at first: She loves Tuckers so surely it's obvious right? But if your destiny is to be with someone different that's pretty hard to ignore and I really enjoyed reading about this and seeing how Clara dealt with the decisions she had to make. I think she's maintained the same aspects of her character that I loved about her from "Unearthly" but matured as a character - there was none of this whiney "Oh I love them both and Oh no I have to choose" business, she just got on with it for the most part.
