"Unblemished" by Sara Ella

My review...

Eliyana has always been treated a bit differently by most people. Only her mother and Joshua treat her like she is normal. She cannot wait to graduate, as she has spent most of her life staying in the shadows. Her life changes after her mom disappears and Joshua, who is only a few years older than her, becomes her guardian. Eliyana quickly learns that what she once believed to be her weakness could actually be her strength. She also discovers that there is another world she never knew existed.

Eliyana is a very relatable character. The world often views people based on their outer, vs. inner, beauty… unfortunately. There is strong character development throughout as she discovers herself-worth. The plot is intricate, but still easy to follow, and the characters are well-drawn. A key theme is the age-old struggle between good versus evil, as well as the importance of not judging someone solely on their looks. Ella uses first person POV and blends love and drama perfectly in this debut fantasy tale. The reader will likely be eagerly anticipating the sequel, as there is a cliffhanger ending. The cover is absolutely beautiful, and it really compliments story.
