Series: Unearthly #2.5
From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand comes a riveting original novella (available only as an ebook) set in the world of the Unearthly series.
Clara is desperate to get away—from the memories that haunt her in Wyoming and the visions of a future she isn't ready to face—and spending the summer in Italy with her best friend, Angela, should be the perfect escape. . . .
For as long as she can remember, Angela has been told that love is dangerous, that she must always guard her heart. But when she met a mysterious guy in Italy two years ago she was determined to be with him, no matter the costs. Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or if telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.
Alternating between Angela and Clara's perspectives, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.
This is a novella but I don't think it's a quick read at all. Radiant made me question a lot about Angela's intention. Was everything just a coincidence or Phen had planned the idea insider her head? And if it's true then seriously it'd turned everything upside down. I loved Clara in this novella. She was strong and had grown up a lot: the way she thinks and her actions were not irrational anymore. As a conclusion I highly recommend Radiant because it's a good transition. It gave the insight of Angela's life and how it would be a problem later on.
