Reading level: YA
The past few years held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Yet through the dizzying high of first love to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she could no longer deny was that she was never meant to have a normal life.
Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seemed like the best option, so she's headed back to California—and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.
As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he's not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won't come without sacrifices and betrayal.
In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must choose her fate once and for all.
First off, this is a completely spoiler free review!
Boundless is a satisfying conclusion to the Unearthly trilogy. I was more than happy with this ending and while I felt that it didn't quite live up to the awesomeness of the first two books, it was pretty
The story is a little slow in Boundless. I was expecting something pulse-pounding and full of action but instead there wasn't a whole lot of that until the end. Sure there were some very shocking things that happened but they didn't make me feel like I had to keep reading. It was a very slow build up to an awesome ending but it was a little difficult to push through the first half of the book.
I have always been Team Tucker but I definitely understood Team Christian fans in this book. Readers get to see a really sweet side of Christian in Boundless and I really grew to like him. Don't get me wrong, my allegiance never swayed from Tucker but I definitely liked Christian more than I did in the previous books. Also, there wasn't a whole lot of Tucker in Boundless and let me just say, I was rather disappointed about that. If you are a Team Tucker fan like me, just be prepared for that.
The ending wrapped up everything in the trilogy very nicely. If I do say so myself it was almost too perfect but I'm okay with that. All my questions were answered (even some I didn't know I had) and I was definitely left smiling.
Overall, I definitely recommend this conclusion if you've enjoyed the previous books in the trilogy. I look forward to whatever Cynthia Hand writes next!
