Unblemished by Sara Ella

Five stars

Eliyana has always recoiled from her own reflection in the mirror. But what if that were only one Reflection—one world? What if another world existed where her blemish could become her strength?

Eliyana is used to the shadows. With a hideous birthmark covering half her face, she just hopes to graduate high school unscathed. That is, until Joshua hops a fence and changes her perspective. No one, aside from her mother, has ever treated her as normal. Maybe even beautiful. Because of Joshua, Eliyana finally begins to believe she could be loved.

But one night her mother doesn’t come home, and that’s when everything gets weird.

Now Joshua is her new, and rather reluctant, legal Guardian. Add a hooded stalker and a Central Park battle to the mix and you’ve gone from weird to otherworldly.

Eliyana soon finds herself in a world much larger and more complicated than she’s ever known. A world enslaved by a powerful and vile man. And 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?

I read this book in a little over a day. No joke. It was that good.

Let me just say, this was the first fantasy novel that I completely and totally lost my heart over! The fantasy side of it was very well done (and that’s coming from someone who’s not a fan of fantasy) and I simply loved the fairy tale side of it. I felt like a little kid once again in the worlds of make believe I would come up with.

I cannot give this book enough praise, honestly. From the moment it began, I was hooked. I instantly fell in love with Eliyana and just the story in general. All of the characters were beautifully portrayed and I couldn’t help but fall in love with them all, even the bad ones!

This book had so many emotions packed into it, it was truly a masterpiece. Even though I finished, it’s still in my thoughts and I know I’ll definitely be reading it again!

“This entire time I’ve been closing myself off from love, but it’s been the solution all along. I’ve built walls at every turn. No more.”
