  1. Originally posted onYA Fanatic.I m torn between giving 4 or 5 stars I loved it so much First Destroy Me and now Radiant You people are trying to kill me I want,I need Unravel Me and Boundless Since Unravel Me is pre ordered I only need to find some money to get Boundless too Tucker and Warner All I need to say to you is clears throat This is mostly Angela s story but we also have Clara s POV We get to see how they spent their summer in Italy before heading out to college I liked Angela since Une [...]


  2. Update Note I m in the middle of book 3 at the moment and can finally confirm that it is not completely necessary to have read this short story before reading book 3 However, there is a huge tie in of one particular instance which happens in Radiant with something that will take place in Boundless The situation is explained enough in book 3 to where you can get by if you skip this story, but I liked knowing what happened in Radiant first Angel books are probably even worse than vampire books for [...]



  3. Well.Angela is kind of an asshole.But she s in love and she feels judged I literally have to keep reminding myself that most people would act the same way if placed in this position.Honestly, that s something I always fear that I ll meet someone and I ll project my ideal significant other on that person and think that this person is special when truly the relationship will likely not work out.Especially because I m a reader I have this idea of the kind of person I want that I ve built from my bo [...]


  4. Radiant was an amazing novella A lot of times novellas can be disappointing and short, but this isn t the case here I highly recommend reading this before reading Boundless, as I think it will be an important piece in the story Don t read this if you haven t read Hallowed, as it would spoil major plot points This takes place just a few short weeks after the events in Hallowed Clara and Angela are spending the summer in Italy, staying with Angela s family Clara is still heartbroken over her mothe [...]


  5. Radiant, or how Angela view spoiler loses her virginity by seducing a much, much older man and has an affair with him while being a minor hide spoiler Something about this whole thing is tacky.


  6. This review is also available over at my blog._____________________The first time I heard about Radiant, I was like FINALLY Because it was about damn time we get to see what s inside Angela s head, and find out who that guy she met was and what really happened between them So, naturally, I rushed to get this novella on the very day it came out.Even though this was only a novella and was very short, I still enjoyed it very much I may be biased because I m so in love with this series, but I wouldn [...]


  7. This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea s Bookshelf.Since we still have a little than a month until Boundless, book 3 comes out, I was sooo happy when I found out about Radiant I love being back in this world This is Angela s story, but we also have Clara s POV I really enjoyed Radiant because it focuses on Angela and her mystery guy squeal , even though I kinda missed having Tucker and Christian in here Angela and Clara are spending their summer in Italy before they go to college They r [...]


  8. This was an enjoyable novella telling the tale of Clara and Angela s summer trip to Italy While there Clara experiences the first of her new visions We also get to meet Angela s mystery boy, Phen The Angela Phen relationship was intriguing and definitely the best part of this novella Phen is a fascinating character I m dying to learn about him Clara s reaction to the romance is also quite interesting I loved that this switched between Clara and Angela s POV It was great to learn about Angela a [...]


  9. As this fantastic series is coming to an end, I decided I would actually go ahead and read its novellas as well a rarity for me, which is a good sign you need to read this series if you haven t yet Plus, I kind of don t want it to end, so I m doing all I can to stretch it out.A far as novellas go, Radiant was a gratifying journey into Angela s love life Angela is a character I both adored and questioned in the previous book, thus I was excited to learn this novella would bring us into her life a [...]




  10. This short story is quite confusing.I always liked Angela I still do but now I am not sure about her any I liked her optimism and her pretty white wings were suposed to reflect her pure soul I wonder what will happen that will change things because I am sure that things will drastically change.Also I didn t see all that jealousy coming, maybe because I liked her so much Yes, she had this all mystery around her, knowing things that others didn t, pushing for finding out secrets, but still this ca [...]


  11. This is a short novella about Clara s and Angela s summer vacation in Italy before college The best part of it is that we finally get a look inside Angela s head and her mystery man For once, Clara seem to be focused on her friend and not her own misfortunes which was a pleasant switch from her insistent self pity in Hallowed.Her new vision is a troubling one and after that last sentence I m really curious about what Cynthia Hand has up her sleeve for Boundless.


  12. UGH Why is this only in ebook form I demand a hardcover Update 12 4 12 IT SHALL BE READ TODAY 3


  13. Three Stars A short novella that gives insight into Angela.Angela and Clara are spending the summer in Italy For Clara, it is a chance to get away from Tucker and Christian and her grief Angela returns to spend the summer with her Italian family, but she longs to see the one man who set her heart a fire two summers ago Except the one who has her heart isn t a man, he is an angel and he ended up breaking her heart Paths led back to Phen and Angela finds herself once again enad with the forbidden [...]


  14. OMG, WHAT That was so so good I can t wait for the last book to come out Im really, reaaaaaaally, hoping that she ends up with Christian, because honestly guys Tucker is great but Christian is PERFECT for her He belongs to same world than her, he understands her, and he is cute and funny He kind of messed up a bit at first, but if it wasn t for that short summer she wouldn t have gotten involved with Tucker cries That Prologue and the first chapter of next bookI mean, WHAT The waiting is k i l l [...]


  15. I have a feeling that Phen is going to play an important role in Book 3, so it was good to be introduced to him and learn about how he found out about Clara I think makes me not dislike him as much as Clara does.BUT, the reason I m giving it 2 stars instead of 3 stars is because 1 Angela infuriates me and 2 I still have leftover animosity for Clara and her decision at the end of Book 2 And the way she was brooding about it in this novella just made me want to tear her hair out not mine since she [...]


  16. Wow, I really didn t like Angela in this She s one of THOSE friends You know the typee girl that s jealous of her supposed best friend and acts in petty ways to undermine her friend I always preferred Wendy over Angela as a friend for Clara, but after reading Angela s point of view WOW, she s a terrible friend to Clara And the whole view spoiler seducing an angel who s literally older than dirt Yeah, that was gross hide spoiler I m still beyond excited for Boundless, but this lacked everything I [...]


  17. This was great to ease my anxiety towards Boundless, but I think now I want book 3 even So excited The release date can t come soon enough


  18. I can t say enough great things about Cynthia Hand s fabulous writing, but I will say that if you re already two books deep into this series, you MUST read this novella Radiant is split between both Clara and Angela s points of view, and it is done with such ease that it s almost as if you re having a conversation with the two girls But what you really take away from this short story is a little better insight into Angela s character, as well as the introduction of a new character who may become [...]


  19. SpoilersI thought this novella would only be in Angela s POV, unfortunately Clara also narrated some chaptersUgh.Anyway, Angela and Clara are on holiday in Italy or Canada I forgot I was expecting the two of them to get up to all sorts but naturally they can t have some good old fashioned fun girly time or crazy mad adventure together, instead they both spend their holiday obsessed and swooning over their respective guys Clara spent most of her holiday moaning about Tucker and how much she misse [...]


  20. Angela and Clara are spending the summer in Italy with Angela s family Clara has been having visions and Angela is sneaking out to meet with a mysterious stranger OkayI was really hoping to get answers with this novella especially about Angela but all I m left with is questions I did like getting both Angela s and Clara s POV and I guess it did help a bit to get into what they were thinking Angela s mysterious stranger is quite intriguing in several different ways I liked seeing the softer si [...]


  21. I enjoyed being back in this world I loved Hallowed and I didn t realize how much I really missed this series until I read this novella The end of Hallowed left me wanting Boundless, and now that I ve read Radiant I m dying to get my hands on the last installment in this series This isn t a story that centers on Tucker or Christian Yes, these two are mentioned through out the story, but this storyline focuses on Clara and Angela s visit to Italy, which takes place between Hallowed and Boundless [...]


  22. Radiant is a good addition to the Unearthly series It takes place after the events of Hallowed and bridges to the next release, Boundless In Radiant, Clara and Angela are spending the summer in Rome, with Angela s extended family Clara is still very much recovering from the traumas she suffered at the end of Hallowed, and Jeffrey is nowhere to be seen She is grieving and needs something to take her mind off her troubles Angela comes through with a very strange reaction to a mysterious man on the [...]


  23. 4.5 Stars Why did I read this when the release of Boundless is still six weeks away This is everything a supplemental novella should be Clara and Angela head off to Rome before beginning their freshman year in college We get to know Angela better and find out who her mystery man is We get to experience her insecurities about her friendship with Clara and we get a sense that this may affect the story in book three Clara s starting to get a new vision and a new complication is introduced, and that [...]


  24. Amazing A lot of times novellas can be annoying and disappointing but it wasn t the case here I kinda like Angela before but now I am not sure any.


  25. Got increasingly frustrated with Angela s stupidity regarding Phen She acts so reckless, I agree with Clara on this one But that s exactly what Cynthia Hand wanted us to feel So job done I guess Also that kiss scene was funny And Clara talking about Tucker also reading it after Boundless which I m currently re reading almost makes sense, as the poignancy of the ending will make sense once you realise how it ties into the main story Not completely necessary but it gives you feels when you read [...]


  26. Even though Radiant is from both Angela s and Clara s POVs, this short story really belongs to Angela We learn some of her back story which includes an interesting incident involving Christian and a bit about her insecurities, and we finally get some details about her secret summer boyfriend, the mysterious Phen Her loud, boisterous family is hilarious, and her Nonna gives the best advice You must beware the handsome ones, she says, and makes a tsking noise with her tongue Pretty face, rotten so [...]
