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.
There is always this bittersweet feeling when you start reading the final book in a series you’ve loved. Letting go isn’t easy. After all, there isn’t a next book coming next for you to pine after. I had enjoyed both Unearthly and Hallowed, and it left me a little terrified to see where Cynthia Hand would be taking us next with this final installment. Would she break my heart? Boundless brought me so many feelings, and yes heartbreak was one of them. It is hard to feel nothing when the characters you met and learned to love are torn.

Clara’s life isn’t any easier than it was before. She still has many things to face, and she is still broken over her feelings for Tucker. She is pushed into doing so many dangerous situations to save those she cares about. She can’t see to catch a break. Despite being a little tires of the whole love triangle thing, I could understand why she feeling the way she was. Even if I wasn’t a big fan of Tucker, I could get why she liked him, and why she couldn’t move on. Even if he was sometimes a jerk, he can still be a really good guy with her.

Christian was certainly my favorite, and I felt so bad for the way Clara treated him, as he could see how broken she was over Tucker. Yet, he was always there for her, even if it sometimes kills him. Angela is still, in a way, by Clara’s side, but she has her own things to think about. She has her own story going on, and she has her bigger part to play I this book. I was so happy to see more of her, since I find her to be a really interesting character.

Boundless was a heartbreaking, but satisfying ending. There were a few twits that will keep you hooked into the story. Of course, this book also comes with the knowledge of who Clara will finally end up with, and I think that most will be satisfy on a certain level, even if Clara doesn’t end up with your favorite.

  2. I was pretty scared for this one because I didn't want it to break my heart! It's so hard to say goodbye but I thought this was a great conclusion! I've always been Team Tucker but I did feel for Christian too! He was sweet!
