Waiting on Wednesday - August 24, 2011

The lucky book of choice this week comes from a series that I stumbled upon. I found Unearthly by accident at a used book store and thought I'd heard some good things about it. Whether I actually had or not, I'll never know. What I do know is that they had to have been understated regardless. The concepts and characters in this series is fascinating and I can't wait to see where Ms. Hand takes it!

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: January 24th 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers

From Goodreads:

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.

Described by Richelle Mead as “utterly captivating,” Unearthly received outstanding reviews, garnered accolades from New York Times bestselling authors, and was named an Indie Next Pick. In this heart-wrenching sequel, Cynthia Hand expertly captures the all-consuming joy of first love—and the agony of loss. This beautifully woven tale will appeal to fans of Lauren Kate, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Aprilynne Pike.
Happy reading, friends!
