Publisher's Summary

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.

FABULOUS Story!

This is a fantastic book, a truly worthy follow-up to "Unearthly." My only problem with it is that I would have liked MORE, and I guess I've got to wait until January 2013 to get my fix! I bought this the day it was published in print, and then waited very impatiently for the audiobook. The re-read via audio was very satisfying, and I thought the narrator did a fine job.

But ... mostly I'm just greedy. :-) Cynthia Hand draws me in so completely, fills this story with so much meaty material, that I just want to sit and feast until I can't hold another word.

This is an absolutely wonderful, incredibly compelling story that will take over your heart and thoughts for days. I am a huge fan of this series, and will be rattling around Ms. Hand's website for the next year dying for glimpses of the next installment!

Fun series

This is for teenagers, but I have liked the series so far. Nothing too dep, but not boring either. If you like Twilight, this is about the same level.

After reading the last book, this is better

What made the experience of listening to Hallowed the most enjoyable?

I really liked how all the characters began growing, and I especially enjoyed the relationship between the characters- main character and mom, main character and friend, brother, boyfriend and ultimately the one she's meant to be with.

What other book might you compare Hallowed to and why?

It took me a while to get into the first book, but devoured the second. The series starts slow, but her writing and story telling gets better with each. As to compare it to other books, it stands on it's own.

Which character – as performed by Samantha Quan – was your favorite?

I loved all her characters- she did a superb job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely.

Any additional comments?

Finish the series with this book. I was totally disappointed with the ending of the trilogy. i had to re-write in my head :)

Truly lovely.

Would you listen to Hallowed again? Why?

Yes in a year or so. It'll be nice to go back and experience angelic angst with Clara again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hallowed?

The ending was lovely. Sad, but lovely.

What does Samantha Quan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nice voices. I focused on the story, not her various voices. Good work.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Run into the light.

Any additional comments?

I preferred this book to the first. Maybe it's because Clara has become more sure of herself, more comfortable with her wings, I guess. I look forward to the third book, which should be out soon!
