Book Review: Unblemished


Product Description

Unblemished, by Sara Ella
Eliyana has a birthmark covering half of her face.  Her mother and Joshua are the only people who treat her normally.  Because of Joshua, she believes she can be loved.  One night her mother does not come home.  Joshua becomes her new legal Guardian.  She is also being stalked.  Eliyana soon finds herself in a world much larger than she’s ever known. A world forced to remain in a bad situation by a powerful and vile man. Eliyana holds the answer to defeating him. How can an ordinary girl, a blemished girl, become a savior when she can’t even save herself?


O. My. Goodness.  THIS BOOK!!!!!  It was AMAZING!!!!   I thought the cover was neat online, but then I saw it in person...WOW!!!  This is such a beautiful cover!  It even has sparkles on it.  :D  On to the review...

This is a super fast paced, fairytale, adventure.  We jump in right when Eliyana is grieving her mother's death.  Then a whorl pool of things happen to her.  Before you know it she is in another world...well technically the Second Reflection.  Where we live is the Third Reflection, there are seven in total.  Anyways, at the beginning of the book you are just as lost as El (her one of many nickname's) on everything going on.  How is her birthmark, that she has always hated, something important?  Something that can save these people.

Let's talk about some of the characters, shall we?  El, can sometimes be annoying.  She is into Joshua a bit too much, if you ask me.  And she doesn't trust Ky at first (will talk about him next), but I can't say I blame her.  He had given her no reason to trust him, but after he saves her and is being kind to her, she is still suspicions of him.  Just trust the guy already (I say that, but I wasn't so sure myself at one point!).  Which she does eventually.  Other than that she is a fine heroine.

Ky is my favorite character.  At first he is a "bad guy,"  but it is really just an act.  He is cocky, funny, SUPER protective (which is super sweet), kind, and I him.  He's one of those characters you can't help but like (love). 

I don't want to give to much away.  This is an epic story of love.  A story of good vs. evil.  And the biggest love triangle I have ever witnessed.  I am truly sad that I finished it.  And the second one doesn't come out till July of next year!!! Ugh.  I need answers.  At the end you don't know who El is going to choose, Joshua or Ky.  I'm team Ky all the way.  If you love fantasy, romance, and fast paced goodness, this is the book for you.  It also has some fun references that I enjoyed reading (minus the Harry Potter ones).

The one thing that I didn't care for was that Eliyana's Mom had her at 16 and she conceived her by a married man.  Even though I don't think she knew he was married, they still shouldn't have done that.
Other than that I LOVED this book!!!  I can't wait for the second one!!!  Well done, Sara Ella!!!

5 out of 5 stars
