To be honest I was a little afraid that I wouldn’t like this book even after reading many positive reviews. Some people appreciate books more than others and some just have different tastes even when we’re reading the same genre. Okay, I know I’m babbling. I’ll get right to the chase.
Unearthly started out slow, easy and captivating. It wasn’t dragging it was light and steady. There wasn’t much “action” in the beginning but it wasn’t bad at all. It was still exciting in its own way and kept me reading word for word.
Clara is an excellent protagonist. (I totally see Dakota Fanning playing her) She wasn’t too overwhelming and angsty and despite the fact that she’s an angel-blood or a nephilim. She and her brother is left ignorant by her mother about the how deep the angel stuff can get. So mainly, she just knows the basic stuff like purposes, flying, the super strength and smarts other than that she is left oblivious which I think was kind of stupid of her mom to do but then again she is just protecting her.
I won’t go into the secondary characters because it’s hard for me to do so without spoiling it for you guys… so I’ll leave to you guys to read the book and find out.
To wrap up my review, I say that I loved the book from start to finish. It was literally captivating to the point where I couldn’t stop reading even when it started slow. Cynthia took care of that and simply wrote a beautiful book. I love her writing style so much that it simply took my breath away. Unearthly is an unputdownable book and I highly recommend it to you all.
