For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn't prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought. 

Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves 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. 

In this compelling sequel to "Unearthly," Cynthia Hand captures the joy of first love, the anguish of loss, and the confusion of becoming who you are. (from Goodreads)

Some Quick Thoughts:

I am so glad that I continued reading this series Unearthly left me with too many unanswered questions which frustrated me and made me not want to pick this one up. At least for a while. But something in the back of my mind kept nagging at me. I wanted to know what was going to happen to Clara. What really is her purpose? And why was her mom keeping so many secrets. So not all of these were answered, but I was left very satisfied. The story was great. There was more action and drama. I wish there would have been more interactions between Clara and her friends like in Unearthly, but the story didn't really allow for that as much. I understand why.

I'm so glad that I didn't wait too long to read this sequel. Unfortunately that just means I will have to wait even longer to find out how Clara's story continues.
