The heart-wrenching, unputdownable paranormal romance from Cynthia Hand. Angelic powers, forbidden romance, and the choice between fulfiling your destiny or following your heart's desire. Clara has known she is part-angel since she turned fourteen two years ago. But only now, through fragmented visions of a terrifying bush fire, is her Purpose - the crucial rite of passage for every part-angel - becoming clear to her. When Clara meets Christian, the boy in her visions, he is everything she could wish for - so why does she also have feelings for her enigmatic classmate, Tucker? Clara discovers that her Purpose is only a small part of a titanic struggle between angels and their destructive counterparts, the Black Wings. And when the fire of her vision erupts and both Christian and Tucker are in danger, who will she choose to save?

Our customer reviews

Cynthia Hand has written a gripping tale of love, destiny, angelic lore and true romance. At first, I wasn't so keen on reading this book because it seemed kind of cliche, but I quickly changed my mind after reading the first few chapters. The characters are so convinding, lively, sympathetic that I wanted to read on and find out what would happen to them! This entire series is just great. Grab yourself a copy, you won't be sorry.show more
