“Waiting On” Wednesday: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

“Waiting On” Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Publication date: January 4, 2011

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees. . .

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 it 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 deciet, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a 2011 debut, and one of the books I will be reading for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren. I’m very excited for this one, and I love the cover (I want that dress!).

  2. Hmmm, I’ve seen this on netgalley, but I’m a little afraid it may lean too much towards science fiction for me. I’m not totally convinced I would like it.
