Review: Unbreakable by Sara Ella

To Purchase

Eliyana Ember is a reluctant queen. As vessel of the Verity—the purest of souls—only she can lead the fight against the wicked magnetism of the Void. If she fails, the paths between Reflections will cease to exist, and those she loves will remain plagued by darkness.

After falling through a draining Threshold and suffering near-death, Eliyana awakens to a Shadowalker-ridden Venice, Italy. From there, she must learn to navigate mysteries of time and space. Traveling across the seven Reflections, Eliyana seeks one thing: the demise of the Void.

But something else is at stake—the fate of her heart. Kyaphus Rhyen and Joshua David, brothers in arms, duel to win her hand. Ky remains ensnared and tortured by the Void. Joshua, though well-meaning, harbors dark secrets. Meanwhile, Eliyana finds herself torn, her mind and memories leading her in one direction, but her heart pulling her toward a man she knows she shouldn’t trust.

How can she discern whom to believe when she cannot even depend on her own fragmented memories?

Traversing the realms of fantasy and reality through a labyrinth of plot twists, Unbreakable delivers a thrilling conclusion to Sara Ella’s Unblemished Trilogy.

My Thoughts:

I so wanted to love this book as much as I loved the others. But I didn't.

The first two hundred pages or so were slow. The characters wandered aimlessly in circles. At the beginning of each chapter they would come up with a plan, the middle of the chapter would consist of them speaking with someone who doesn't relate to that plan, and the end of the chapter would consist of them either choosing not to go through with their plan or someone preventing it from happening. And this happens over and over and over. It drove me nuts. Not to mention that I was so confused.

The last third of the book picked up a lot and that was when I started enjoying it.

I loved the character development in this book. Especially Ebony's arch. But the romance was practically non existent. I don't mind the main character's romance being put on the back seat to make room for other characters and blooming relationships. But this romance wasn't put in the back seat. It was stuffed in the trunk. It barely existed, maybe there was fifty pages of actual romance. And I feel like after the ending of the last book, I needed more closure than just that.

The plot twists though... those were on point. Whoa.

I look forward to any books Ella will write in the future. I just hope that they're more like the first two books than this one.

I received a copy of this book for free through the Fiction Guild. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.
