REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED http://hobbitsies.net/wordpress/2012/...

Do you guys ever feel absolutely speechless after reading a book? Because that’s how I feel after reading Hallowed by Cynthia Hand. GUH. GUH. GUH. I have no words for how emotional Hallowed is.

There’s just so much. So much beauty and love and heartbreak and loyalty and indecision…it just broke me in a billion ways. As much as I loved Unearthly and was surprised by it, take that and multiply it by ten, and that’s how much Hallowed affected me.

One of the main things I loved about Hallowed was learning more about Clara’s parents, but also about her brother, Jeremy. I think a lot of him was glossed over in Unearthly, but he was more of a focus in Hallowed and I loved being able to see his reactions to everything that was going on.

Another aspect I loved about Hallowed was just learning more about angels in Cynthia Hands’ series – they change from book to book and I think the way Cynthia Hand writes them is absolutely fascinating. And we learn a lot of new tidbits in Hallowed.

Overall, I thought Hallowed was an absolutely wonderful follow-up to Unearthly. If you read and loved Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, go now and pick up Hallowed. Just hold on to the tissues. And if you haven’t read Unearthly, uhm, go do that. ASAP.
