My Opinion :

*This review may contain some spoilers if you haven't read Unearthly*

Hallowed is the sequel to Cynthia Hand's 2011 debut novel, Unearthly. It follows not long after Unearthly's gripping end.

Hallowed was a great read, although it took me TWO days for me to finish (and that's a lot for me, I normally take one day, or one day and a half to read books :S). And so, I wanted to finish it quickly. The first 200 pages were a little slow for me, and so that's why they took me a long time to read, but afterwards, the book just flew by. The pages turned and turned easily.

In Hallowed, many secrets are revealed. Big ones. Like they have a gay dead parrot (just kidding, but seriously, LOADS of things get revealed in the book. Read it now if you had a bunch of questions back when reading Unearthly). Tucker and Quarterius (quarter-angel) Clara are together (I was Team Christian before reading this, but now I'm Torn (with a capital T) between the two guys, although Christian is winning by a tinsy little bitsy). They meet a Dark Wing... there is a funeral (I am not telling who's).

This book was really great, and I don't want to describe it too much, in case I give any spoiler, but it was a great read overall.

The characters did grow up a lot and got to know more and more about themselves as the book continued. Some stuff was really impressing and surprising, which I really liked!

I didn't like Clara as much as I did in the first book. But, I did still really like Christian :D And I started liking Tucker, although... Christian... and Tucker.. and ughhhhhh.... I LOVE THEM BOTH (although... Christian...)

Anyways, a good angel read. I you read the first book, you absolutely need to read Hallowed!

I love the cover :D


4 roses!

  1. I can't believe I haven't read Unearthly yet! I've heard soo many good things about it. I'll have to read it and Hallowed sometime soon.

    Glad to see you liked this one! I hate it when the second book in a series isn't half as good as the first, so good to know that wasn't the case here. And I love it when books have love triangles that I can't decide between the two guys! :D It makes it so much fun. Thanks for the review!

  2. i can't believe it.
