** spoiler alert ** As we all know the angel / fallen angel themed book has been dominating the 2010 young adult book shelves and though is very intriguing the premise that Cinthia Hand bring us with Unearthly. I must say that there are part of the book which are unique and very interesting but the are others which I find a bit flat and lacking of the magic that makes a book extraordinary.

The book is narrated from the first point of view through the eyes and voice of Clara which for me was a decent young female heroine there were times I would sympathize with her character and tried to understand what she was going through but there was sometimes I just didn't care enough about her and so this happen with Tucker and with Christian. The author did I find job constructing the plot and creating the setting but when it was time to get to explore the characters there weren't much depth into them.

The romantic relationship was something that left me wanting for more, I get the whole I hate you but I love you thing but I just didn't understand how they actually felt in love with each other, no I'm not going to say which of the two lead males I'm talking about, so there is no development in that area and for me is all about developing the relationship between the main characters. The relationship with the other one was also a bit weird for me because there suppose to be a bond but I never found it and I wish that could have been explained a bit more like I said the main problem of the book was the depth of the characters.
