Set to release in North America on January 2, 2018, Everless is Sara Holland’s triumphant debut novel. Fans of Victoria Aveyard (the Red Queen trilogy), Kendare Blake (Three Dark Crowns), Vic James (the Dark Gifts Trilogy) and Stephanie Garber (Caraval) will devour this lush novel’s breathtaking action, incredible romance, and dangerous secrets. I simply couldn’t wait to start reading it – the description had me intrigued – and after a relative dry-spell of fantastic books, I was in need of a good read!
In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries. No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever. But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.
