Author: Sara Holland
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: January 2, 2018
Summary (from Goodreads): In the land of Sempera, time is extracted from blood and used as payment. Jules Ember and her father were once servants at Everless, the wealthy Gerling family’s estate, but were cast out after of a fateful accident a decade ago. Now, Jules’s father is reaching his last hour, and she will do anything to save him. Desperate to earn time, she arrives at the palace as it prepares for a royal wedding, ready to begin her search into childhood secrets that she once believed to be no more than myths. As she uncovers lost truths, Jules spirals deeper into a past she hardly recognizes, and faces an ancient and dangerous foe who threatens her future and the future of time itself.
I am really excited to start reading some fantasy again, and Everless seems to have all of the components of a great one! Secrets, royalty and danger are my favourite fantasy themes, so I seriously cannot wait to read this. That cover alone has me drooling already. Isn’t it absolutely stunning?
