For months Clara Gardner trained to face the fire from her visions, but she wasn’t prepared for the choice she had to make that day. And in the aftermath, she discovered that nothing about being part angel is as straightforward as she thought.
Now, torn between her love for Tucker and her complicated feelings about the roles she and Christian seem destined to play in a world that is both dangerous and beautiful, Clara struggles with a shocking revelation: Someone she loves will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning. 

Review: Hallowed was a good read, I was sad throughout it because I knew someone close to Clara was going to die and when it came to that part of the story my heart broke just a tad. I love the two male love interests as they both offer Clara different things, but who is the right one for her. Well, Christian only because he is like her and will live longer than Tucker. Okay, there is more to it than that but she can really be her Angel self without worrying about the glory making Tucker sick or worship her. However, her heart belongs to Tucker, and I wonder how that is going to play out in the end. I think Tucker is a great character though, all of the characters are well developed and easy to identify with. The story flowed well and the reader gets a better understanding of who Clara is and where she comes from. Hallowed is full of surprises, and can't wait to read more of this series. This is truly a story of loss, self-discovery, family and love.
