Unearthly Trilogy | Cynthia Hand #2: First there was Unearthly, then came Hallowed -- Boundless is where it concludes.

Unearthly Trilogy by Cynthia Hand

Book #1: Unearthly

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?


Book #2: Hallowed



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.


Book 3: Boundless

Thanks for the new thread!

I'm still not over how pretty that Boundless cover looks.

Yeah.

I look forward to seeing what the Australian cover looks like! But that probably won't come out until later on in the year.

That's too bad. I can't wait to see it, either. And I hope they get her hair color right this time around. As much as I love the Hallowed cover, it bothers me a bit that her hair color is red when she's back to being blonde in the story.

When did her hair change back?

In all of the US covers, its not blonde either The only Hallowed cover that it is blonde is the UK one.

You know.. in all of the books, you would think the last book would be more pages since so much needs to happen, and yet it seems it will be the least pages of the three books.

It changed back when Tucker kissed her for the first time and she was in glory.

None of the covers seem to get her hair color right. On the US ones she's a brunette on all of them. On the UK ones she has blonde (or more like white) hair even on the first book. And the AUS ones have red haired Clara.

I noticed how it says 320 pages for Boundless on goodreads. I'm just hoping that's not the final page count. Cynthia thought she had enough material for a fourth book so why would this last book be a 100 pages shorter than the previous two. It makes no sense.

ooh okay, so in Unearthly.

Yeah.. I guess people don't see the covers as a big deal But you would think they would get the hair right.

I know. I hope it changes I am expecting at least 400... her wordcount, I saw on her blog was like 105,000, which is like.. 420 pages, and it could be more or less after edits.

Yes, that's what threw Chistian off. Because in his vision the girl always had blonde hair and he didn't even consider her being Clara until he saw her face at prom.

Usually I don't really care much for hair or eye color change (in movies or on the covers) but it's kind of an important detail here, so it's just weird.

I'm sure it will be around the same length as the first two books but I wouldn't mind it if it was even longer.

But he had seen her face before Prom right? Like even that first day he met her.. in the hallway when she fainted Her face would be the same, but not the hair.

I wouldn't mind if it was longer too, because I don't know how she is going to have everything that needs to happen in 400 pages. I mean.. Italy/end of summer, college, and what this whole destiny with Clara and Christian, and.. anything with Tucker? and then there is the purpose they are meant to do.. and I'd imagine a war or something?

He hasn't recieved his vision/purpose yet when Clara first showed up at school. He just felt that something's different about Clara and that's why he tried to say hi to her in her head.
And when he started having visions he has only seen the back of the girl, until prom when she turned around and he realized it's Clara.

Yeah, it surely will be a very action-packed book from beginning to end. There is supposedly a war going on between the good angels and the Black Wings and I'm sure CC's purpose has to do with that. Maybe only the two of them together are strong enough to stop Samjeeza and co.

Oooh yeah. I definitely will be re-reading them before Boundless comes out I am hoping I can get an ARC for it like I did with Hallowed.

Yeah, and not to mention whats going on with Jeffery.

Lucky you! I don't even attempt to get an account on NetGalley because I'm so horrible at writing book reviews.

Oh yes! She said that Jeffrey (and Samjeeza) will have a much bigger part in the last book.
