Review - "Hallowed" by Cynthia Hand

(Unearthly #2)
Publishing Date: 1/17/12
Publisher: HarperTeen
Genre: YA
Source: Library Book

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.


My Review:
Warning: This book can be a serious tear-jerker.  I think it took me awhile to review it due to the fact it's a sad book.  You think Clara went through a big dilemma last need to read this book to find out what she had to deal with that really changed her life and her brother's.
After I read "Unearthly", I felt saddened because I had to wait to read "Hallowed".  Cynthia Hand leaves you wanting more after you read "Unearthly".  Well, at least that's how I felt.  I needed more of Tucker.  Yes...I was Team Tucker from "Unearthly".  Unfortunately, I end up switching sides in "Hallowed" because Christian ends up in Clara's life a little more than Tucker.  How can Tucker compete with Christian though?  I know I wouldn't want to be Tucker competing against Christian.  There's no comparison between them.  I fell to adore Christian a little more in the book.  He was always there to comfort Clara and it seems Tucker just wanted to give up.
I had a hard time putting down this book just like I did the first.  Clara not only has to go through life changing event, but she also gets to meet others of her kind in this book.  She also finds out a secret and she also has someone come into her life, she never thought she would see again.  Let's just say "Hallowed" definitely is a great sequel to Unearthly.
Cynthia definitely doesn't disappoint in this book.  Yes, she made me cry a few times, but that can be good with a Author who knows how to write an amazing Angel story.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves YA and loves Angels. 
Be prepared to have tissues on hand though. 
And sorry for the short review...but fighting a sinus infection and also taking care of a 6 month old while she teethes.
