Unearthly - Cynthia Hand Finally an angel book that wasn't so ... angsty? Over the top? Bogged down with lore? I don't know, take your pick. For me, Unearthly was the right amount of backstory combined with plot to make it work and also make it not so heavenly divine.

Clara is a 16 year old girl who not so long ago found out she was an angel-blood. Now she's getting visions, or as her mother says, "It's your purpose." The family uproots from California to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Where Clara meets Christian, the boy in her vision. The boy she's supposed to save.

Then there's Tucker Avery, her best friend's brother. Tucker stole the book for me. I found myself frantically turning pages looking for more interactions with him. From his first entrance, to the prom, to Clara's birthday, I just loved him. I found that I cared more about him than the golden boy Christian. And Tucker was honest - probably the most honest of all the characters in the book.

I'm still not sure I trust Angela, I don't know why, but I get a very uneasy feeling about her. I wonder if she's explored more in the next books. I will definitely be continuing this series. I need more Tucker Avery.
