From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand comes a riveting original novella (available only as an ebook) set in the world of the Unearthly series.
Clara is desperate to get away—from the memories that haunt her in Wyoming and the visions of a future she isn't ready to face—and spending the summer in Italy with her best friend, Angela, should be the perfect escape. . . .
For as long as she can remember, Angela has been told that love is dangerous, that she must always guard her heart. But when she met a mysterious guy in Italy two years ago she was determined to be with him, no matter the costs. Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or if telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.
Alternating between Angela and Clara's perspectives, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.
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.
I have enjoyed this series from the beginning! This world of half angels, of complicated relationships, of fates that don't work out who they thought they would, and all this complicated stuff, it was just so great to read!
I really enjoyed Radiant, because it gave us a look at Angela, and the whole novella is pretty important to Boundless-if it hadn't happened, then she wouldn't have said that to him, and then all that stuff wouldn't have happened! So yeah, that was really great to read Radiant!
Then Boundless, well, there was almost no Tucker, and a lot of Christian. And as someone who preferred Tucker for her, well, that sucks. But then there was all that conflict with her brother, and that situation, which was really great to read!
How everything came together, was just perfect! I enjoyed reading all about that so much, it had things ending in places that I never imagined, but just worked out so well together! I wish that we could've seen her dad in the end, but oh, well!
Really great ending to this series, and I just really enjoyed reading the both of these!
