Book Description:
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.

Cynthia Hand has a way of making a love triangle work.  I still can’t believe that the journey is over for Clara, Angela, Christian, and Tucker.

Boundless was a bittersweet read for me.  I did not want to let these characters go.  Each person deals with some pretty intense emotions in this book.  The biggest things they have to overcome are jealousy, doubt, fear, and longing.  I wasn’t a fan of Angela after I read the novella, and I’m still not really all okay with her now.  But that’s mostly because of how she acts.  I wanted to slap some sense into that girl.  Poor Clara is so confused about her visions she doesn’t know what to do.  Christian just wants to be with Clara without her thinking about Tucker. Tucker just wants Clara.  But she’ll have to choose….

The pacing was perfect.  We get snippets of Clara’s mom, and even Samjeeza.  I really enjoyed finally learning a little about their past.  Micheal even shows up for a short bit.  There was action in Boundless, and not just little scuffles. 😛  Everything in the previous books has been leading up to this moment.  What will happen?  I can’t tell you, you’ll have to read and find out.  Just be forewarned that you will need tissue.  Just saying. 😉

A beautiful ending to a great trilogy.  I felt closure, and that makes me giddy. 😀
