Review: Unearthly - By Cynthia Hand

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. 
I'm finally finished!! This book took me a while. I found it a bit annoying that I had to wait until past page 200 to read anything even a bit interesting. This book dragged. I wish I could say something different but really I can't. I remember carrying this book around with me for days ( like I so often do) and friends looking at me questioningly..."your still reading that??" This book gets 3 stars from me because it did actually pick up after that 200 page slump and I do plan on reading the next book in the series. It was very clever of the author to leave far more questions that answers at the end of the book. I have far too many questions that are in need of answering. So yes I will buy the next one and yes I will read it with great interest. I just hope it gets better. This was a pretty good story..and there's so much that can be done with it. We can only hope the author can pull it off!
