I have a few pretty strong thoughts about this book right now, so I'm just going to dive right in.

In Unearthly we know that Clara started out super infatuated with Christian but then ends up falling in love with Tucker. Clara and Tucker are still together in this book. However things are changing quickly for Clara and it doesn't seem like Tucker can keep up. Clara is having a new vision that doesn't include Tucker but it does include Christian. But Clara keeps fighting what she knows she should do because she has strong feelings for Tucker.

Now I really like Tucker and I was completely rooting for him. And I don't usually switch teams but I switched teams in this book. I was thinking the entire time how much Clara just needed to let it go and get on with her life. It's obvious that her and Christian are meant to be together. It's obvious that Tucker is not cut out for Clara's crazy angel life. But Clara isn't one for catching on that quick.

Although this is a big part of what's going on in Clara's life, it's not everything. There is a Black Wing on the loose and causing havoc in Clara's life. Not too mention she's trying to figure out what this new purpose could possibly be. She's also trying to learn more about what it means to be an angel blood and her mom is surprisingly more forthcoming than she has been in the past. She even takes Clara, Jeffrey, and Angela to meet a congregation of other angel bloods. Jeffrey and Clara find out some shocking news about their father. And life takes a whole new turn.

I was literally sobbing throughout the last 20% of this book. It was so unbearably heartbreaking, I couldn't even deal with it honestly. I really love this series so far and I can't wait to see what happens next. I liked this book even more than I liked Unearthly. Even though Clara can be pretty stubborn sometimes, I really love her as our main girl. I feel so much for her and everything she has been through and still has to go through. I can't wait to see what happens with Clara next and how she grows even more. 


  1. you switched teams!? I have no words. But how could you?!

  2. I honestly couldn't believe it either. But I straight up switched. By the time I did, I didn't even notice and then it was too late.

  3. Awesome review Amber. I will add this one to the wishlish for my stepdaughter.

  4. I love this book. And I think she would enjoy it.
