This is the sequel to 'Across the Universe' which is an incredible read and an outstanding debut from Beth Revis. I'm incredibly excited about the follow-up although the plot is being kept under wraps at the moment. There's also quite a wait for this one as it's not published until 10th January 2012, making it a perfect post-Christmas present!
For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought.
Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.
'Unearthly' has been one of my favourite books so far this year. I didn't want it to ever finish so 'Hallowed' literally is one of my hottest anticipated sequels at the moment! I'm dying to see how the relationship between Clara, Tucker and Christian is going to work itself out and with a death on the horizon it sounds like this could be a dramatic installment to the series. It''s published on 24th January 2012.
'Nightshade' is the sequel to 'The Poison Diaries' which had quite an intriguing finish and set things up nicely for the rest of the series. I'm looking forward to seeing how the romance between Jessamine and Weed will be developed and how Jessamine will recover from her experiences in the first book. There should be a lot in store for readers of this one and luckily it's being published by HarperCollins on 25th October 2011, so you should be able to grab it soon.
