Review: Boundless - Cynthia Hand

Boundless - Cynthia Hand
Boundless (Unearthly, #3)
Recently I've been putting down my normal paranormal reads and getting into something out of my regular comfort zone. I've picked up a new found love for Contemporary. Well. I started to think that I wasn't going to go back to paranormal, because I just wasn't getting into anything. Then I recieved an arc of Boundless. Not only do I LOVE the Unearthly Series, but I was sooo excited to get this that I dropped everything to start it!

Cynthia Hand does not disappoint. I loved Unearthly, so I had to get Hallowed. At the end of Hallowed, my mind was completely blown. I was left speechless. I anticipated Boundless HARDCORE. I thought, SERIOUSLY!? What else is going to happen after that?! So I immediately dove head first into Boundless. I loved everything about this series, and I can not wait to read Cynthia's next work of art [whatever it may be.]

Clara, Tucker, and Christian. The epic love triangle that never really was. I was always so torn between Tucker and Christian. Christian is perfect, but so is Tucker. As Clara found out before, everything happens for a reason. The visions are always a premonition of her purpose. Clara realizes that in order to keep Tucker safe, she needs to let him go. After all, she is Angel-blood, he's just a mere human. Embarking to Stanford with Christian and Angela is just the start of everything. Clara sees a crow that she thinks is watching her, and following her. Finally she realizes that the crow that's been stalking her is the one and only Samjeeza.

SO much happens in Boundless, the FINAL chapter in this trilogy [sigh]. I felt like every time I turned the page a new secret was revealed, a new twist turned, and I was along for the journey WITH them. There is still the everlasting inner battle with Clara about who she loves, and who she is going to be with. I can't tell you who I thought she was going to end up with in the end. I can however tell you that it threw me for a COMPLETE loop! I almost fell out of bed at the revelation that occurs.

Cynthia Hand's The Unearthly Trilogy will forever be in my Top Ten Series EVER. I adored this story. It was extremely well thought, written and carried out. I'm completely satisfied with this series. I want to say that I'm happy about who Clara ends up with, because I really am... but there's always gonna be that piece of me that wishes she ended up with the other person.[Hey I said I was torn!] This was a thrilling conclusion to an epic love story. Such a bittersweet finale. I will definitely recommend this series til my dying day. There's not enough praise for the beauty of these novels.
