I read Unearthly just a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed it. I was so glad to be able to read Hallowed while Unearthly was still fresh in my mind. This series is great, I love Mrs. Hand’s writing, it’s amazing and touching, and it will draw you in and keep you wanting more and more.

Most of the same characters from Unearthly are back in Hallowed. (We do get to meet some new characters, who turn out to be pretty awesome.) I found the main character, Clara, to still be pretty likeable. Although she does have issues this time around, and she’s very undecided about what she wants, which is totally understandable. I have to say I love Clara’s mom, and I love their relationship with each other. They definitely made the book even more special for me.

In Unearthly, I was definitely team Tucker, but I was curious about Christian as well. I wanted to know more about him. I’m delighted to say that we do get to learn more about him in Hallowed, and now I’m kind of on the fence on which I prefer. I really love both guys, but for totally different reasons. But Christian’s character definitely grew on me throughout the book.

The book is very well paced, and I really enjoyed the plot. There are some parts in the book that definitely had me in tears. It was definitely an emotional read for me. (I will not spoil it for you, but once you read it, you will totally know what I am talking about.) There are also quite a few surprises thrown in that really threw me for a loop.

Overall, this series is so great. It’s definitely one of my favorite angel series so far. I have really enjoyed reading both books, and now I’m anxious for the next book to be released!
