Booktuber Sara Ella recently became an author with the release of her debut novel, “Unblemished.”

Unblemished, by Sarah EllaSeventeen-year-old Eliyana always has recoiled at the sight of the birthmark she feels disfigured her.

One night, her whole world changes and suddenly her blemish could be her greatest strength.

This is the first in a planned series, and Ella does a marvelous job of creating a varied and interesting world. The characters themselves also are unique and diverse.

Ella’s pacing is on point. Once the setup is taken care of, she keeps the plot moving forward with just the right momentum.

The tale pays homage to many different fairy tales with obvious love.

This novel is an absolutely wonderful beginning and I can’t wait to see where the story goes next.

The second novel, “Unraveling,” is expected to be released in July 2017.

I gave “Unblemished” four out of five stars on Goodreads.
