Goodreads 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 determined to be with him, no matter the costs. Now she must decide whether she can trust Clara with her secret, or it telling her the truth will risk everything she cares about.

Alternating between Angela and Clara's perspective, Radiant chronicles the unforgettable summer that will test the bounds of their friendship and change their lives forever.

          Radiant was a quick read and it got me even more excited Boundless' release for today. It satisfied my missing Unearthly-world as well as piqued my curiosity about Angela.

I was never a big fan of Angela since I never fully trusted her and was always wary when Clara would share personal information with her. I was always suspicious of Angela and feared what she may do with that information. And after learning what happens in Italy, I just don't trust her at all.

Angela always preached that there be no secrets between Clara and her, and in Angel Club as well. She was always focused on learning everything about everyone but never once volunteering information about herself.

Now, I'm off to start Boundless. I'm super sad to see the series come to an end but I can't wait to see how everything plays out. (And maybe see some sort of happy ending for Tucker? I'm a sucker punishment, I know.)
