Book Review- Boundless

I just finished reading Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand.

From Goodreads:

The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have
anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life.

Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California - and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.

As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfill her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must decide her fate once and for all.

I have to admit that I didn't fully remember everything from the first and second books in this series.  But after reading my past reviews and reading the novella right before this, I caught on pretty quickly.

One thing I wrote before was how much I loved the books were because they were such character stories.  And thankfully, the same applied to this last installment of the series.  Sure, there was some action.  But it was more about Clara and Christian and Tucker and Angela. 

Knowing that this was the last book in the series made me a little nervous to get to the end of the book.  Often times, I feel like there is still so much unresolved and I'm left wanting more.  But I think the author did a wonderful job of wrapping the series up.  Clara does end up with one of the boys.  And while I was team Tucker in the first book and team Christian in the second, I'm glad she ended up with who she did.  It just feels right.  And that's all I'm going to say.

If you haven't done it yet, pick up this series.  But I should warn  you.  Go ahead and get all three books now.  Because once you start the first book, you're not going to want to stop until you've read all three!

I give this book  a rating of 4/5.
