Review: Hallowed

Summary:For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn't prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought.
Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.

Review: I was really excited for this book because I really enjoyed the first one, so when I finally got my hands on it I started reading it right away. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed and didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed Unearthly. I can't say exactly what it was that made me not enjoy it so much, because I'm not sure. I guess I found it to be a bit boring, in the first one we got to experience Clara trying to figure out her purpose, trying to get close to Christian, and slowly falling in love with Tucker. In this book she's friends with Christian, she already has Tucker, and she's not working on figuring out a purpose anymore, so I think that all equaled a boring book for me. There were some really high action parts, and some interesting scenes, not everything was boring, but when I find myself the majority of the read bored, it sorta cancels out the really good parts. Usually in books where theres a love triangle I automatically pick the guy I like, in Unearthly I knew I was team Tucker, but Hallowed really had me torn! I can't say now if I'm team Tucker or Christian because they really both won me over in this one, and that's a hard thing to do for me! They're completely different characters, but I love them both equal. Props to Cynthia Hand for making two absolutely different, but lovable love interests. Clara had to go through some pretty tough situation in this one and I truly felt bad for her, I can't wait to see what happens in the next one.

3/5 stars
