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.

Hallowed the second book in the series Unearthly, begins shortly after the events in the first book. Clara did not fulfill her mission and does not know what is next, while Clara is having a recurring dream, which later she becomes aware that it is a vision and in that vision she realizes that someone close to her will die in a few months and Clara will try to prevent it.

The love triangle between Clara - Tucker - Christian gets complicated, because Clara is sure that she loves her boyfriend with her whole being, but also feels a strong connection with Christian.

Samjeeza the black wing still on the prowl trying to harm Clara and her mother. And Jeffrey is increasingly distant and always is with bad temper.

Hallowed is an excellent continuation of the story of Clara Gardner, I liked more than the first book. It surprises me, there were some events that definitely I did not see them coming and that's good, I like it when the unexpected happens. It also has its sad parts and I spill a few tears, very beautiful story, totally recommendable.

If you haven´t read Unearthly, you should read it soon, this is a totally recommendable series.
