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 really loved the world building in Unblemished. It was very unique and awe inspiring. I found the descriptions of the setting and characters to be beautifully done. 

One thing that I did not like was that Eliyana's feelings towards Joshua. I understand she likes him and he means a lot to her but I did not like how closed off Joshua was towards Eliyana.  I felt as if she was too attached to him. Joshua is a mystery. I don't mind mystery but I do not like it when the character is closed off to the point and all of a sudden shows an ounce of care.

I really enjoyed the concept of Reflections and the alternate New York City. I thought the beginning wonderfully introduced this concept without being overwhelming. El is determination to find her mother was consistent and true. I liked how El's purpose did not waver when she was faced with adversity. 

Overall I loved the unique setting and the overall plot of Unblemished.

Once upon a time, SARA ELLA dreamed she would marry a prince (just call her Mrs. Charming) and live in a castle (aka The Plaza Hotel). Though her fairy tale didn’t quite turn out as planned, she did work for Disney—that was an enchanted moment of its own. Now she spends her days throwing living room dance parties for her two princesses and conquering realms of her own imaginings. She believes “Happily Ever After is Never Far Away” for those who put their faith in the King of kings.
