Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 448
Released: 2013
Source: Personal Copy
Rating: 4/5

** Third book in trilogy may contain spoilers**

First Book: Unearthly
Book Two: Hallowed


In Boundless, Clara Gardner is college bound. The last couple of months have been really difficult for her, her mother passed and her brother is nowhere to be found. Many secrets were uncovered, and Clara must keep going. Clara, Christian and Angela enroll in Stanford and hope to figure out what Angela’s angelic purpose could be. Christian decides to give Clara some space, she’s clearly not over Tucker and he wants to give her time. He doesn’t hide the fact that he wants them to be closer. Angela becomes obsessive about her purpose, and trying to hide the fact that her summer romance was more than she’s allowing others to believe. Clara is frantic to find her brother and not lose him. When Clara’s father shows up, offering training session to advance her skills, Clara knows that she must prepare for battle. The question is when will the battle take place?


Boundless was a great conclusion to the trilogy. It’s filled with action, secrets and struggles. Clara wants to be there for Angela but Angela won’t come clear to her. Christian is giving her space, but she can’t deny the fact that she’s drawn to him. However, her feelings for Tucker are more confusing than ever. The love triangle between Clara, Tucker and Christian will leave some fans happy and others not so much. I wasn’t happy, but it didn’t make me enjoy the book less.

Clara is still young, still trying to figure out who she is and in Boundless, she takes on the protector role. Her brother has lost faith, and she tries to do what’s best for him. They’re mother is gone, and their father was never around, so Clare tries to fill that position. When her father starts training her and trying to sharpen her skills, it’s nice to see him around.

The Unearthly series is one of my favorite young adult series, and I highly recommend it. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, so you’ll have to read it for yourself. This series will have your emotions running high, and keep your on the edge of your seat. 


  1. Always nice when a series ends to your satisfaction!

  2. I didn't know the third was out! Must read it! :--)

  3. I need to expand my horizons but, so far, haven't had good luck with paranormal books. I'm glad you enjoyed this trilogy so much.
