The past few years held more surprises than part angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Yet, through the dizzying high of falling in love for the first time to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, one thing that remained constant was the knowledge that she was never meant to have a normal life. Now Clara is finally ready to fulfill her destiny, as the battle against the Black Wings and their minions looms on the horizon. And part of that destiny is being with Christian, even if her heart still aches for Tucker. When one of the people Clara trusts most betrays her, she finds herself fighting for her life - and the safety of the ones she loves. In the electrifying conclusion to the Unearthly series Clara will gain new insight into the true meaning of her purpose, and decide once and for all whether she should be with Christian or Tucker.

Comments about Boundless:
This trilogy is by the far the best trilogy - and the best of all books that I have read so far.
Boundless had caught my attention, every word pulling me in to read more and know more.
Love triangles are usually considered shallow, may disinterest readers or be viewed as completely unnecessary. This was not the case when it came to Clara, Tucker and Christian. I grew to love these characters as I read on, each unique to their own personality. I thought by the third book I would pick a side, but that was not the case, I was completely unsure who she should love and the continuous hurdles and decisions she needed to make. Her love for Christian and Tucker was so strong, but so different, allowing me to feel so many emotions at once, sympathy, pity, heart break, glee, excitement and these constant emotions continued to whirl inside, non-stop. I actually had no idea who she'd end up with. Even though at the end she chooses one, my heart shattered for the other. (view spoiler).
Then you have the plot, I completely enjoyed Samjeeza's role in this book. His character development and the things I learnt about him - his connection with Clara and her mother. His faint touch to humanity. I loved the idea that even evil can fall in love, that not all lacked a heart - which was portrayed really well when compared to his brother. I also completely enjoyed learning more about Clara's dad who supported her - in his weird way- as much as he can. How two opposites, evil and pure can love and come to care for Clara's mum.
I was glad to see Jeffrey written so well in terms of experiencing grief - not taking his mother's death lightly. The confusion, hurt and the loss he felt to the point of losing himself. His agony was reflected really well in his behaviours and decisions, not making grief an easy transition but truly showing that it was a rocky road.
Then the complete surprise of Angela. (view spoiler).
The entire journey of visions, problem solving, training, fighting and facing their epic test was such a pleasure to read. Cynthia Hand had outdone herself. Very well written, both plot and character wise. I regret that these books have been placed on my shelf for two years doubting that they would be good. I came with the impression that these books would be plain boring and shallow, because angels? But boy was I wrong.
I did not want this book to end.
