Book Synopsis (from Goodreads)
What if a magical touch meant leaving everything you loved behind?
I was supposed to die. The doctors told me I had only two months to live.
That was before I met him. Daylan.
He was the miracle cure I had been waiting for. With Daylan, I was no longer the small-town girl with that unexplained illness. I was something more. The fate of a magical world depended on my survival, and I longed to go with him. There was only one thing stopping me.
For fans of fantastical adventures, unexplained magic and deadly romance.
First of all, I have to say that I really love the cover of this book.
Empress Unveiled is a fantasy story that, besides humans, involves creatures like fae, angels, demons, witches and an interesting love triangle.
One of the things I liked about this book is the fact that the focus is not only on mythical/fantasy/magical aspects, it also follows a human story of struggles when faced with a terminal disease.
Swayzi is very sick and the doctors can’t find a cure for her, she’s been in and out of hospitals and with her mother as her only family member.
Things are hard for them and I loved to read about their relationship and the kind of support system Swayzi had, not only from her mother, but also from her best friends Penelope and Tyler.
As I mentioned at the beginning there’s a love triangle (and I admit that while I was reading I was constantly changing my mind about the guy I wanted Swayzi to end with), also the arrival of a mystery guy called Daylan that changes things in Swayzi’s life (I won’t give anything more away to avoid spoilers).
At one point this book was heartbreaking and I just couldn’t stop reading because I had to find out what was going to happen.
This book was an enjoyable read, I didn’t know it was part of a Series and as it ends with a cliffhanger I just can’t wait to read the next one.
