*Preview* Boundless by Cynthia Hand

Less than one week until the third and final installment of Cynthia Hand's Unearthly series is released. And not a moment too soon, I say!

For those of you who are as anxious as I am to delve back into the angelic world of Clara Gardner, be sure to click the link at the end of the post to read the first FIVE (yes, I said five!) chapters of Boundless, complements of Harper Teen and Browse Inside.

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 fulfil 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.

About the Author:
Cynthia Hand is a native of southeastern Idaho and currently lives with her husband and two small children in Southern California, where she teaches writing at Pepperdine University. She has graduate degrees in creative writing from Boise State University and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Instead of a muse, Cynthia has a guardian angel named Buster. He wears a Stetson in place of a halo, prefers a beat-up pickup truck to flying, and loves to correct Cynthia's grammar.

I practically devoured the preview and my eyes are bugged out as a result. SO. WORTH. IT. I'll reserve judgment until I get my pre-order, but so far, Cynthia Hand has really delivered with a thrilling and heartwarming finale. I'll be both happy and sad to see it end. C'est la vie.

all the best, dear readers!
