Today on the blog, I am so excited to be hosting one of my favorite authors! I fell in love with MaryLu Tyndall’s writings around 6 years ago when I found her pirate series. She writes wonderful historical romances that have strong inspirational themes of faith. If you love Pirates of the Caribbean, you’ll love her books! Today, she is talking about how her faith influences her creativity.
The description of the book reads as follows:

I try to post book-related things on Wednesdays, and I haven’t finished a book this week, so I don’t have one to post about specifically, but I decided to write a post about what I’m currently reading and what I’m looking forward to reading next. I usually do this just at the end/beginning of a year, but since summer’s a great time for reading, it’s always useful to know some good books to pick up.

Unbreakable by Sara Ella is the third book in the Unblemished book series (following book 1, Unblemished, and book 2, Unraveling). This is a YA trilogy that garners praise from fellow YA Christian fantasy authors, Mary Weber and Krista McGee, who remark that Unblemished is “a breathtaking fantasy” (Weber) and that “Unblemished had me from the first chapter.” (McGee) Library Journal calls it “engaging and suspenseful” and RT Book Reviews says it is “a stunning journey”.
