Author: Cynthia Hand
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
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 realizes, 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?
I’ve been on an angel kick lately. As long as the book isn’t too weighed down in dogma I enjoy it. I’ve downloaded a few Indie books about angels and I heard about this one from a friend on Goodreads. It looks like a good read. I just have to wade through my TBR pile to get to it!
There’s a second book out in the series too. That should be incentive to read the book. Just in case there’s a cliffhanger at the end, at least there’s another book to continue on. From all reports there isn’t, but just in case there are unanswered questions.
Hopefully I’ll get to it within the next two to three months!
