The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live 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 seems 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 decide her fate once and for all.
Is trust a risky decision?
Throughout the series, Clara, her brother and her part-angel friends have been receiving divine guidance through their inner vision. While many trust and follow their guidance, some doubt the purpose behind their ‘appointed tasks’. At the end of Hallowed, I shook with disbelief when I learned about the things that Clara’s brother was led to do by his vision. So, I was eager to find out what’s going to happen next in the lives of Clara and her family in this installment.
In Boundless, Clara moves back to California and starts her life as a college student. With her brother missing, she feels she has failed to be the sister that her mother would like her to be. Torn between what she loves and what she should do, Clara wonders if her vision can truly guide her to fulfill her purpose. While she has the pure intent to save the lives of those whom she cares, she is no longer certain if she possesses the ability. Is she the savior or is she the one in need of saving?
Clara is a very likeable character. Although she seems awkward at times, I like that she is willing to train herself to become a better fighter. I also like how she never gives up on those whom she loves. While her newly developed ability seems convenient, I’m happy to see how this development ties in with some of the things that have been mentioned in the earlier installments. It helps me see why this installment is titled Boundless and I appreciate the implication of the infinity of timelessness in the series.
While I enjoy reading about irresistible boys, the thing I love the most about this series is not in relation to the male characters. What really stands out for me is the theme of purpose – the interconnectedness of all matters and how vitality is being expressed by those who choose to harness its power to the fullest. I’m in gratitude for all the insights that I received while reading the book and even though this is a YA series, I highly recommend it to those who are seeking purpose in life. If you’re tired of reading another self-help book, try this series – you may be surprised by what you’d find through reading this trilogy.
Hope you’ll like the book as much as I did. 🙂
