Author Interview - Cynthia Hand + Giveaway


I love Cynthia Hand, the author behind Unearthly and Hallowed. Click the links to see my rave reviews of both books!

Today, I am THRILLED to share a cute video Cynthia made just for AnnaReads.com, sharing her answers to some of my burning questions. (Who are her fictional crushes? What does she think about Clara's friends? Other fun things!)



Cynthia, thank you so so so much for the video! Team Tucker 4-eva, I'm just saying, but I love you no matter what happens. Heehee.

Looking forward to Hallowed? Sign up below to enter to win your own signed copy of Hallowed plus some awesome swag (Unearthly patches, posters and bookmarks).

About the book: For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. 

Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her 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.

  3. Loved the video - great questions. Interesting info about the setting of Jackson Hole. Also about the Wendy/Angela friend question - I've only read Unearthly so far but I was starting to think Angela did not always have Clara's best interests at heart. Can't wait to read what happens next in Hallowed!
