Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
This is the sequel to Unearthly of which I absolutely loved. Clara went through so much to get ready for what she thought was her purpose. The fire where she chose to save Tucker. She believes that she has failed to fulfill her purpose and is trying to move on. In this book, Clara struggles with her feelings for Tucker and what she believes to be possibly her destiny with Christian. He is a Dimidius just like her. Sanjeeza who she met during the fire is back and still completely obsessed with her mother. While he still hasn’t recovered from the injuries that doesn’t stop him. She learns the truth about the fire and how it started, and suffers a terrible loss of someone she loves. Her father comes to help her through the loss and helps her figure out who she really is. She also learns that fire is just the beginning of what is going to be a long battle. Clara has the strength of someone many years older. She is a strong and very determined young girl, while dealing with normal teenage things. First loves, hardships of friendship and family. This a gorgeous sequel to Unearthly. It’s captivating, beautifully written, and heart wrenching. You will need tissue. Lots. This is and absolute must read.
