Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Description (from GoodReads):
In this first book of a thrilling trilogy about angels, one girl must choose between fulfilling her Purpose and following her heart.
Clara has known she was part–angel ever since she turned fourteen two years ago. But now she is finally getting visions of what her Purpose—a rite of passage for every part–angel—is to be, and it happens to involve a gorgeous guy. Of course, there is the raging forest fire surrounding them, too. When Clara’s Purpose leads her family to Wyoming, Clara finds the boy of her visions, Christian, but complicating her mission are her growing feelings for another guy, Tucker. As the day in her visions draws closer, Clara discovers that her Purpose may play into a larger struggle between angels and Black Wings—fallen angels who spread sadness and misery wherever they go. But when the fire erupts and both Christian and Tucker are in danger, who will she choose to save?
From debut novelist Cynthia Hand comes a riveting tale full of supernatural powers, forbidden romance, and the choice between fulfilling your destiny or following your heart.
Such a beautiful cover! My favorite part is definitely the title and the feather detail. I’m very interested to see how the purple will look on the finished copies.
I’m intrigued by the book’s description as well. When I saw that UNEARTHLY was about angels I expected something much like HUSH, HUSH. Hand’s debut looks completely unique: the main character, a girl, is the angel! I can’t wait to explore this world!
