Unblemished - A Book Review

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I began reading Unblemished.  It is the first book by Sara Ella and I am sometimes a little leary of new authors.  But on the contrary, I was pleasantly surprised with this book.  I was instantly drawn into a beautifully written story. 

Eliyana can’t bear to look at her own reflection. But what if that were only one Reflection—one world? What if another world exists where her blemish could become her strength?
Eliyana is used to the shadows. With a 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 like he does: 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?

This is definitely an author I will be looking out for in the future.  This book was definitely left open for the possibility of another installment and I hope the author writes a sequel!

***Thanks to for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
