Summary:  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.

My Thoughts:  I liked Radiant. I wasn't expecting there to be an eBook between Hallowed and Boundless but when I found out there was one, I knew I had to read it before Boundless. And I’m glad it did, because it made things make much more sense!

We are back with Clara, and she is spending the summer abroad with Angela. They are staying with some of Angela’s family and this is exactly what Clara needs, some time away from everything.

Radiant focuses alot on Angela’s thoughts and her romance with a guy named Phen. I wasn't so sure about him at first and since he is in Boundless I’m glad I picked up this little novella.

Basically, in Radiant we find out more about Angela’s secret boyfriend, and how he comes about in Boundless. We also see things from Angela’s point of view.

I liked this story but not as much as the full length books.

Overall: Liked it and enjoyed reading it, and think it is a good read in between novels. It sets the story-line for Angela better for Boundless and makes understanding it a lot easier.

Cover:  It’s ok but not as cool as the other covers.
