The Story:

The past few years held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Now, with the fallen angel who attacked her watching her every move and the threat of Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny—a destiny that includes Christian Prescott by her side. But in order to complete her purpose, Clara must first find a way to give up the thing she wants most . . . a future with the boy she loves, Tucker Avery.

FOUR Gold Stars!!!!

My Review: One word: 

Talk about a finale! I was so sorry to see the Unearthly series end but boy was the final ride fun.


In my reviews of Unearthly and Hallowed the plot left something to be desired - it was a little lackluster for me. But in Boundless, my wish was granted - the plot had a bit more spunk to it. There was action, bad events took place, the character's abilities were put to the test, there was suspense and more. However, there was one tidbit that drove me nuts. Clara's main conflict in Unearthly and Hallowed was miraculously resolved. Perhaps it would not have peeved me so much if the resolution was more dramatic but that wasn't the case. Instead, it sort of melted, uneventfully, off into the Wyoming sunset. I needed more. Alas, the main conflict in Boundless was more fleshed out. 

In this book, we see more of the love triangle. I am a Tucker Girl 100 percent but it was so much harder for me to ignore Christian. I had the feels for Christian. For all three of them. Clara had to literally fight destiny to choose who she wanted to love. Christian was in love with a girl whose heart was torn. And Tucker was not only human but was in love with a part-Angel girl and had to compete with another angelic being for her affection. 

Even more, Cynthia Hand practically ripped my soul out in Boundless. Yet another person dies in the Unearthly series. The death in Hallowed was hard but the deaths in book 3 had me blubbering like a baby. The scene was so well-written - it was strong, emotional, realistic. I thought I was in Boundless and the experience was happening to me. I nearly died! 

And get this, Bookies! There is an epilogue. An EPIC epilogue! The perfect bow to the present that is Boundless

*Side-note: You guys have no idea how hard it was to write this review without spoilers.*

If you have not finished the Unearthly series, what in the heck are you waiting for? Get on it! You will not be sorry that you did. Bookiedeeds' Promise. Boundless was a captivating, emotional ride that had me all chips in from the starting gate.

Here is one of my favorite quotes from

"If we can send one man to the moon, why can't we send them all there?”
