I'm sorry for the delay on this one guys! Have a great Thanksgiving!
The Good: This book was strangely addicting and I have no idea why. I kept wanting to pick it up and read a little more. Unearthly is also very good in the romance department, you just have to be patient. Hand does a really good job with the characters. Clara is my favorite by far. She is just a teenage girl who has to find new friends and discover herself just like everyone else. Overall the book was enjoyable.
The Bad: Unearthly left me very unsatisfied. It lacked intrigue towards the beginning and everything good seemed to happen in the last 50 pages. It was good but not extraordinary. We get very little information about the angel and angel-blood community. It is on a more need-to-know basis which was disappointing. And at the end there was no conclusion. No questions were answered. It was like going up the rollercoaster and on your way down stopping 3/4 of the way down. Overall Unearthly was average and lacking in some key areas like action and character development, specifically the minors.
Ugly Updates: Unearthly is out January 4th, 2011. So add it to your post-Christmas list, so you can buy it with your Christmas Border's gift cards and money. Or preorder it via Amazon here so that you can give yourself a late Christmas gift :) Also Hand has a website by at this point it is very limited, and I mean very limited. But she does have a blog that you can check out for more info about her and her books.
