About the Book:

What happens when happily ever after starts to unravel?
Eliyana Ember doesn’t believe in true love. Not anymore. After defeating her grandfather 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.
Now that the Verity is intertwined with her soul and Joshua’s 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 link to 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?

My Thoughts:

I tried.  Oh, how I tried to take my sweet time reading Sara Ella's newest release, "Unraveling".  In fact, to savor the moment, I re-read "Unblemished" before I even cracked the gorgeous cover of the second novel in her trilogy.  May I just give a shout out to the designer of the latest line of YA covers in the inspirational marketplace??

The beauty of today's inspirational YA fiction is how it transcends being merely fiction of faith, but instead these books serve as ambassadors of hope to the entire market.  Okay, that was a, on to the book!

"Unraveling" picks up pretty much where "Unblemished" stranded us.  Ky is gone, Joshua has taken his rightful place by Eliyana's side in the royal court.  And all is now well in the Reflections...right?

Oh, no...most definitely not right!  The Callings are diminishing in power, and the Reflections seem to be evaporating, for lack of a better word.  And future queen El has no clue what has happened.  She thought she'd been told all she needed to know in order to prepare to rule her new kingdom.

Turns out her boys are keeping secrets still.  And these secrets could destroy everything.

Once I cracked the cover, I plowed through the pages of "Unblemished".  I couldn't help myself.  I intended to read one chapter each night, savoring the words, knowing the wait for the final novel would be excruciating.  

But my 'just one more' moniker appeared and kicked into high gear, and before I could barely blink, I was done.  And I was left wanting.

More.  Please, Sara Ella, I wants some more...and that's why "Unraveling" gets my "Oh, the Feels!" stamp of approval.  My thanks to my friends at Thomas Nelson for my complimentary copy with no services or obligations promised in return.

Until the next page turns,
