About the Book
Series: Unblemished, Book 2
Author: Sarah Ella
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: July 11, 2017
Genre: Young Adult Fiction / Fantasy
In the second installment of the Unblemished Trilogy, YA author Sara Ella asks, “What happens when happily ever after starts to unravel?”
Eliyana Ember doesn’t believe in true love. Not anymore. After capturing the Void and saving the Second Reflection, El only trusts what’s right in front of her. The tangible. The real. Not some unexplained Kiss of Infinity she once shared with the ghost of a boy she’s trying to forget. She has more important things to worry about—like becoming queen of the Second Reflection, a role she is so not prepared to fill.
With the Verity intertwined with her soul and Joshua finally by her side, El is ready to learn more about her mysterious birth land, the land she now rules. So why does she feel like something—or someone—is missing?
When the thresholds begin to drain and the Callings, those powerful magical gifts, begin to fail, El wonders if her connection with Ky Rhyen may have something to do with it. For light and darkness cannot coexist. She needs answers before the Callings disappear altogether. Can El find a way to sever her connection to Ky and save the Reflections—and keep herself from falling for him in the process?
And the excitement continues with book two in this wonderful series from Sara Ella! After the ending of book one, I was a little nervous in how the suspense and surprise would continue. Rest assured, my attention was held from beginning to end. I was still on the edge of my seat awaiting answers about Eliyanna, Joshua and Ky.
The thing I enjoyed most about this book was the way the author wrote the characters. I could not make up my mind who was truly a good guy and who wasn’t. This was especially true of Joshua and Ky. I kept flopping back and forth because I just could not put my finger on who was going things for the right reasons. Thank goodness the truth came out before the end because I do not think I could have waited until book three to find out!
The ending on this book was very frustrating, but in a good way. Sometimes I like getting angry at the characters – it’s fun! I was definitely angry with a certain character towards the end of this book. What this person did was a HUGE game changer, and I look forward to seeing how it all plays out in book three. Be prepared readers. You may want to smack this character!
Overall this is a great example of good versus evil. Whether we want to admit it or not, this battle is inside all of us. Much like the characters in this book, we have to constantly and purposefully choose the good over the evil. If we don’t, the evil may start to slowly take over (you see this in the book too!). See if you can pick up on this message while you’re reading.
