Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
I have just finished reading the first book in a long time that has not only followed me through every waking moment, but also through my dreams. This book was the debut novel of one Ms. Cynthia Hand, Unearthly, and I urge every one of you who reads this, be it today or in one hundred years, to find a copy and read it.
Unearthy sucked me in more than Harry Potter or Twilight ever did, though I did go through obsessed phases for both of them. It is a labyrinth of plot twists and romance which roughly follows a young quarter-angel, Clara, through a few months of her life where she receives her purpose in life, to save a young man named Christian from a forest fire, moves to the opposite side of the country and falls in love with her friends brother, Tucker.
It's all first-person, and Clara's thought processes mirror mine so clearly that I couldn't put this incredible novel down. The sequel doesn't come out until next January, but its already on my wishlist.
You can find the author at cynthiahand.blogspot.com, and I beg you to do so.
Unearthly: Read it, I promise that you will never regret it.
