I am always pleasantly surprised when I read a book #2 that surpasses the first. Too often, it feels like the Author was trying to stretch a story that just should not be stretched. I think Sarah Dalton has done a great job of staying true to her characters and plot. The fact that it starts off right where The Blemished finished really helps with the Action from start to finish. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and you will never be bored. You really think its going to end tied up in a pretty bow and then bam a cliffhanger. :'( . But I can't wait to see what is in store next!
Sarah grew up in the middle of nowhere in the countryside of Derbyshire and as a result has an over-active imagination. She has been an avid reader for most of her life, taking inspiration from the stories she read as a child, and the novels she devoured as an adult.
Sarah mainly writes speculative fiction for a Young Adult audience and has had pieces of short fiction published in the Medulla Literary Review, PANK magazine, Apex Magazine and the British Fantasy Society publication Dark Horizons. Her short story ‘Vampires Wear Chanel’ is featured in the Wyvern Publication Fangtales. The Blemished is her first full-length novel.
