My friends, I'm thrilled to be part of the blog tour for Unraveling by Sara Ella! This gorgeous novel is book two in a fairy tale/fantasy/realm-travel series called UNBLEMISHED. Having read, and adored, the first book, I'm quite excited to be spotlighting Unraveling and absolutely cannot wait to read it!

One kiss changed her future. Can another alter her past?

Eliyana Ember doesn’t believe in true love. Not anymore. After all she’s been through between capturing the Void 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.

But why does she feel like something—or someone—Is missing?

When the Callings, those powerful magical gifts, become threatened, Eliyana discovers her connection with Ky Rhyen may have something to do with it. El needs answers before the Callings disappear altogether. Can she find a way to sever her tie with Ky without killing him, and keep herself from truly falling for him in the process?

About the Author

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.

Book Excerpt:


   I’m not ready for this.
   My shoulder is going to rip from its socket. My bicep is a torch, igniting my forearm. His fingers are sliding from mine, and I can’t hold on any longer. All I see is the gorge below, the beads of sweat dewing his temples.
   He shouts, “Hold on!”
   But the cliff crumbles with each passing blink. If we remain this way, we’ll both be swallowed by the chasm below.
   I loosen my grip, my clammy palm slipping.
   His eyes plead. Beg. Implore. “Don’t!” His cry echoes.
   The river crashes and curls. Waiting to swallow. Devour. Obliterate anything entering its territory. But it isn’t the river I’m afraid of. It’s the black hole beyond it. The beginning of the end.
   I know if we disconnect he might be lost forever. “I love you” is what I want to say. Instead I ask him, “Find me?”
   His expression corkscrews, a mask of raw emotion. “Always.” His voice is weak, his energy drained. He’s not strong enough. Because of me.
   So my fingers splay.
   I let go.
