I purchased this book for review.
Clara Gardner has gone through more than other teenagers. Loss, Love, Friendship and Purpose all come together in the final book of this wonderful trilogy. She's half angel, target for those who wish to collect her, fascinated by one who was deeply in love with someone close to her, and those who love her.
Christian, Tucker, Angela, all of them are in danger, all of them are in the good vs. evil game.
And Clara will have to go to hell to fix it.
I'm so sad that it's over.
This is one of my favorite series.
Book Three wraps it all up. It's heartwarming, sad, bittersweet. I will try not to give too much away.
Clara and Christian are best friends, made for each other. While I didn't like Christian in the first book, he did grow on me in the second. So it was a real struggle to read of Clara and Christian vs. Clara and Tucker. (For the record, I love Tucker.) Hand does a wonderful job allowing each of the love interests to have good and bad qualities in each, making them full and different characters.
There are some lovely scenes (like Clara on a mountain top ready to fly) and some heart breaking moments.
This book tugs on your heart like the previous one.
The characters deal with supernatural challenges as well as teenage ones, and a couple of twists in the plot line keeps the story moving.
And it's all worth it in the end.
Continue reading, kids. You don't want to miss out.
