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.
RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars

If you have read Unearthly and Hallowed, you should definitely read Boundless to read about the ultimate ending for Clara, Tucker and Christian and see for yourself if Clara did actually fulfilled her purpose.

In Boundless, we read about Clara's life in university, along with Angela and Christian. (No Tucker there). Surprisingly, Angela played quite a major role in Boundless and we get to know more about the Angels thing in this book. It's also interesting to read about Clara's dad and how he's helping her in Boundless and the role Samjeeza played. There are some fun moments in the book and some of it actually involves Tucker. I felt as if I was on a roller coaster ride while reading this book, especially when it comes to the major action parts in hell. I think my heart stopped a few times nearer to the end of the book. Yes, the story affected me.

The ending is beautiful and I'm satisfied with how the whole series ended. It left me craving for more goodness!


“How did you do that?” 
I shrug. “I click my heels three times and say, ‘There’s no place like home.’” 
“Uh-huh. So … you think this is your home? My barn? His tone is playful, but the look he’s giving me is dead serious. A question. 
“Haven’t you guessed by now?” I say, my heart hammering. “My home is you.”
“We think of happiness as something we can take. But usually it comes from being content with what we have, and accepting ourselves.” 


  1. I loved this book so much. I'm glad I got the ending I wanted from the start.
