Clara learning to impart her glory to help others; training sessions with an important tutor; unexpectedly poignant interactions with the still scary Samjeeza; the freedom and joy of flying; an arresting despairing vision of hell; a slow burning buildup to an exciting climax; and above all a gorgeous moment high on a rock with someone she holds dear I've also rarely seen parental love depicted in such a warm and loving way and there are scenes here that clutched at my heart unbearably I appreciate how full and busy and purposeful Clara's life is; each activity she undertakes and each relationship she maintains is a formative part of her but none of them define her as a person or as an angel I wish young adult novels took such care in showing this balance between life and love in a way that is so organic to the plotThere are however some elements that leave me conflicted For me it was a little too easy to guess who the traitor was; the pacing in the middle of the book felt a bit uneven and left me at odds with the romantic developments; and I thought Clara's relationships with both Tucker and Christian relied a bit too much on our past history and knowledge of what has come before I went into this book loving both boys and feeling that no matter what choice Clara makes I would feel okay with it because I thought it would feel right And in some ways that's still true I think most readers will be satisfied with how this complicated entanglement is resolved But because there is so much back and forth in this book as Clara is pulled between her feelings and because I struggle with how fair the conclusion might be to certain parties I'm not sure that I am uite there yet in celebrating what occurs Even though things wrap up pretty neatly here I feel like I still need closure so I'm kind of hoping that the author writes a follow up story one day I can dream rightBut love is a painful complex and ever evolving thing and the concerns of mere mortals don't always apply when it comes to angels Even with separation and danger and loss there is a great deal of hope and promise for this indelible trio as well as for Angela and for Clara's parents There is so much love in these books in its many different forms and I feel the glow of it long after I turn the last pageWithout a doubt this is one of the best paranormal romance series ever written Boundless is a strong and satisfying conclusion to an incredible series that sets a new benchmark for paranormal romance The passionate discussions about the books speak to the strong emotions that these characters inspire and I know that I am all the enriched for having known them While this particular book is bittersweet my heart is certainly lifted by the promise of things to come This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisherDon't miss our A with Cynthia Hand on January 25th We're going to be chatting about Clara's divine purpose the author's upcoming projects and obviously fangirling over Tucker and Christian We'll also be giving away our ARC to one lucky winner In the meantime you can also read our epic interview with Cynthia from last year here and here if you're interestedThoughtful discussion is absolutely welcome below but PLEASE USE SPOILER TAGS where appropriate It isn't fair to ruin this for people who haven't had a chance to read it yet

dizzying high of first love to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her the on S 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 placeAs Clara makes her way in a world that is frigh Here's my full review spoilers aheadOk you guys I’m ready to speak I’m ready to shout it out to each and every one concern how much this book disappoints me I know it’s unfair to judge and rate it on who Clara ended up with It is totally and utterly unfair But the story did treat the ‘ one I preferred for her’ the exact same way I wish that he wasn’t that understanding I wish he did something awful I wish he wasn’t that supportive of her I wish there’s something negative to say about him But I come up empty handed Because if there’s one thing after all that has happened to them proved is that he completely definitely and truly LOVES her As in just her And not because of anything elseBefore I go to my main point I would like to tell you good people especially if you like the story regardless who she’ll end up with that the conclusion of this trilogy is actually well executed Ms Hand knitted all those lose threads So much sometimes I think it crushed all the possibilities I’ve been thinking right after I read it that is all connected to my main concern It was so clean so spotless that something made it a little flat to me But overall the story was fascinating while yes I would’ve changed few major details about it but I sincerely enjoyed majority of itNow let me start with my Christian Prescott centric review and please if you haven’t read Boundless and not too fond of spoilers discontinue reading this review now I’m about to recklessly gush and I don’t want to ruin anything for you But if you don’t mind then go ahead spoil to your heart’s content“I love you” he murmurs “Can you feel that You Not some destiny I think I’m called to You I’m with you My strength My soul My heart Feel it” – Christian to ClaraThe constant argument against Christian and Clara’s relationship is that it wasn’t love They were just connected because of their ‘purpose’ Sometimes that word irked me the most because after Hallowed ended I saw that Christian’s gestures were no longer just connected with their divine mission While I do admit that I think that Christian and Clara’s relationship started because of it That after he found out that Clara is also just like him triggered something in him But it was just that he found someone he can finally share intimate details of his life who very much knows his circumstances But than that I sincerely think that he fell in love with her because of the time they shared together He finally knew who Clara was The Clara beyond his vision The true Clara Gardner That she’s than the personangel blood mysteriously entwined with his their purpose She is just Clara The sarcastic fun beautiful and strong lady that he fell in love withYes bottom line is HE LOVES HER Purpose aside he truly loves her“But there’s something about you two when you’re together It’s like you fit” He grins Shrugs “He’s your soul mate” – JeffreyYou know what I hate the most is how the story established how they fit together How pleasant and romantic the idea of them together It’s like all facts headed straight to point A Christian the suddenly it went to point B Tucker I don’t have anything against Tucker I’m even on his team before my Unearthly review can attest to that But like I said why made Christian so damn supportive Why show us the possibility which make a lot sense than the time she was with Tucker I’m here asking those uestions Still asking them In Unearthly I was actually surprised that they ended up as an item But it only showed how Tucker grounded Clara’s life That it showed that her life is not driven by anyone but by herself It’s her life her wheel But in Hallowed during and after the situation she was with her mother and how Christian is there for her it showed a lot about their potential as a couple It says a lot about Christian as well and the way they support each other on that moment That they shared many things aside from their heavenly lineage If Christian found someone who can now understand him Clara did have that too with ChristianHis dedication for her in Boundless didn’t falter In fact all the important events happened with Clara or with the story Christian was there My head couldn't wrap the idea of Tucker getting the larger picture It was lackluster and shallow reason that he is her home And even if Clara was indecisive and insensitive Christian still never left her side Even if he bends his principles he will do it for her And all the major events even painful ones–especially painful ones the one person who is always there for her was Christian He had his devotion proved over and over again He’s so unselfish Isn’t that a characteristic of true love But yet all he had done are now pointless because he didn’t have what he deserves I’m not just talking about Clara If there’s one character that should’ve a well deserved happy ending that’s him“Maybe I’ll catch up with you in a hundred years or so” He smirks “I won’t call it waiting” – ChristianAh Christian how can you be so that Soalmost perfect And up until now he’s still hoping He deserves someone but my stubborn heart still aching for Clara I don’t know but I feel that his happiness will be complete with Clara at his side But Tucker’s new situation changed the ball game I hope his ‘longevity’ is not as long as Methuselah Because darn right that will crush my already itsy bitsy hopeAnyway I loved the story while I think Hallowed is the best book of the series for obvious and biased reason I still not taking what I said back that this series is one of the well written angel books or paranormal book out there I was actually amazed on the extent of her research for her story even going to the places personally It showed that she poured everything in here I might be upset and dissatisfied yes but that doesn’t change the fact it was an excellent storyAfter reading reactionToo many emotions I don’t know where to start Or how should I start There are expected awesome moments as well as heart crushing ones If you’re asking if it’s about CHRISTIAN it is I loved his character So much that the ending made every bit of the book pointless Yes I did not like the ending While I did mentally and emotionally prepare thanks to early re
