Waiting on Wednesday {8}

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming books.

Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

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.

I've been really looking forward to this ever since reading Unearthly. It was another one of those times where I thought the book was a little older and didn't realize the second book wasn't out yet so I was even more anxious for the second book than usual. I love Hand's take on angels and really look forward to reading more. And obviously, I look forward to more Tucker. Who wouldn't? If you haven't read Unearthly, you should definitely get on that before Hallowed comes out.
