I kept hearing all over the place how great this book was and how I needed to read it! So I was super excited when I picked it up from th library and started to read it. Cynthia Hand does a wonderful job with this story and creating a world with angels and teenagers and purposes and first love. I was certainy drawn in and held captive by her words. But I was still let down a little. Unearthy did not live up to my expectations and left me feeling unfulfilled. I know this is the first in a series, but I still think a first book should tell a complete story and I just don't think this one did. I still very much enjoyed the writing and the journey of the characters, I already have Hallowed ready to start reading tomorrow. I need to know more of the story. I just wish a little more of the important stuff had been in Unearthly. I still recommend this book and give it a 3.5 stars because I definitely liked it.
