Unearthly

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 realises, 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.

Publisher's Summary

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 realises, 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.

    "Brilliant"

    I LOVED this book, LOVED it. I rant on about the powerless, obsessive female leads in YA literature these days, the Bella’s of the world who are destined to be with a boy, who would do anything at 16 to stay with the love of their life, they have no say, no opinions or options on rejecting this love, its just there. I hate those types of leads, it sends such a bad message to young girls, not only do you have to commit yourself to your soulmate at 16, but it should be passionate, all consuming love, a pull you can’t resist, and shouldn’t resist. No no no. at 16 you should be having fun filled, light relationships, have sex if you must, but don’t think it means you’ll be together forever, and don’t think that you SHOULD be together forever, just because your in love at this moment in time. Things change, people change, there is, in the real world, no such thing as unbreakable bonds and destiny - and if there is, I doubt it’ll hit at 16 for everyone. Anyway, thats why I love this book, Clara is drawn to Christian, she is probably destined to be with him, surely thats what her purpose is, to bond with him. But Clara has a choice, she makes a choice that is unexpected and brilliant, she is also aware that she’s young and that things change, but the best bit about this book is that she is given a choice.



    The story is unusual, and the angels are well written, they are not above us, or better than us, Clara is a normal girl and wants to be seen as such, the angel is a part of her, but not all of her. There are obviously secrets and twists to come in the latter books, Clara’s mothers purpose is still unknown, but must be linked and her brother is up to something. But the magic of this book is in the relationships, Wendy and Angela (who I don’t trust btw) as well as Clara’s family who seem so perfect but there is trouble brewing.
