Mini Book Review : Radiant by Cynthia Hand (Unearthly #2.5)

Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Radiant

Author: Cynthia Hand

Publication Date: 4 Dec, 2012

Publisher: Epic Reads Impulse


From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand comes a riveting original novella (available only as an ebook) set in the world of the Unearthly series.

Clara is desperate to get away—from the memories that haunt her in Wyoming and the visions of a future she isn't ready to face—and spending the summer in Italy with her best friend, Angela, should be the perfect escape. . . .

For as long as she can remember, Angela has been told that love is dangerous, that she must always guard her heart. But when she met a mysterious guy in Italy two years ago she was determined to be with him, no matter the costs. Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or if telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.

Alternating between Angela and Clara's perspectives, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.

My Thoughts:

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today I have a very first Mini Book Review, and for some time I won’t be having this feature. Today I am covering a short novel from one of my favourite series – Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. I have covered two books from this series already, and you can read reviews of Unearthly and Boundless by clicking on them.

I enjoyed this short novel for many reasons, first of all, it gives quite a lot of insight on Angela, as half of the book is from Angels’s POV. We get to see a big part of friendship between Angela and Clara. In the beginning you just want to drag Angela and give her a big of your thoughts about all her secrecy. I mean, she wants to know everything about everyone else, but when the time comes to open up to Clara, she just clamps up. I think the author wished to show us Angela from another side. And even if that side frustrates you a lot, you still love Angela.

If you haven’t read the series yet, this is your chance to start it. It is absolutely amazing. Hope you enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned to Katie’s Corner for more reviews and promos! Happy reading!
