    A Slow Burn

    Well that was worth the wait! I've seen and heard a lot about this book and picked it up on a whim (and partly because I wanted that beautiful cover on my shelf), and my curiosity grew until I couldn't resist any longer. And boy, was it worth it! The story, characters, and lore are all engaging, and while it might be a little slow for some readers, its twists and turns will keep you going until the shocking finale. I love the way the crux of the story--time being currency--was presented. It made sense and I never felt lost. The world and its mythology was inventive and engaging. I also really liked the characters. Jules is someone many people can relate to and cheer for, Roan is an absolute sweetheart, I adore Ina, Caro was fascinating, and while I struggled with him in the beginning, I will admit that Liam was more complex than I anticipated. All of this was great, but it was the shocking ending that really got to me. I honestly didn't see any aspect of it coming, which left me clamouring for more adventure and excitement. I honestly can't wait to see what happens next!

    Amazing Debut!

    What got my attention to start reading Everless is the summary and the cover. I was so engrossed in the pages that I wish that the end had more pages! The story is so twisted, the characters are even more interesting. There is so many secrets, mystery, hints of romance and danger at every turn. Sara Holland's beautiful debut will definitely an amazing read that will capture the readers attention and wish you had the second book in your hands. The Kingdom of Sempera is where time is the currency, which is extracted from blood and added to another's own lifespan. The Gerlings have lived centuries. Then we meet our main character Jules Ember. She is a strong female lead who is in need of saving her father who is her only family. After being sent away from Everless as a child, she must go back in order to save him. Jules is very fearless and smart. She cares more about helping others than helping herself. The ending will completely shock you as you won't be expecting it at all!! I was in total shock that I didn't even see it coming. There is betrayal and many secrets that Jules will uncover about the Queen, the Gerlings and and most of all herself. I will say that one character surprised me the most throughout the entire book and I was happy with who is was. I found that he was more firm with his decisions and kept to himself for many reasons. Overall, Everless was a fantastic debut to this series!! Now to wish for book two!!!

    Everless

    While Jules was not the most compelling MC I've read about, I found that I ended up really liking this book. The concept was very cool, and I liked how the author depicted the impacts of the time system on familys like Jules's compared to the Gerlings. At the beginning of Everless, I was starting to see some predictable and overused plotlines emerging, but without spoiling anything, I'm happy to report that most of these were flipped on their heads by the end, and the vast majority of the plot twists were very unexpected. (Which is good, 'cause... you know, it's sort of the point of a plot twist. I don't love books that are really predictable). Anyways, closer to the end the plot started to pick up, and the last few chapters are really amazing. This being said, I'm giving it a four star rating. It probably would have been five, except for one reason, and that reason is Jules. I mean, I didn't dislike her. She had good moments. But these were equally weighted by her bluntly ignoring very clear warnings that once even came as the dying wish of one character. (Still not spoiling things) Though I understand the need for the outcomes these risks led to, I felt like Jules was blindly running into a whole lot of danger knowingly, and yet still managed to be completely unprepared. If she'd spent some more time on her decisions, or shared more reasoning, it probably would have been fine. Overall, I loved the premise, the twists, the character arcs of people like Liam and Caro, and many of the other characters like Ina. The one element that fell a little flat was Jules, however I think the ending left a good set up for some character development in book two, and I may still change my mind. As a whole I really enjoyed it, and would definitely recommend it.

    A new favourite

    This book is by far one if the greatest books i have ever read. Its like reading a mixture of all of my favourites. This thrilling novel beautifully combines suspene, fantasy, tragic, and Jules' deepest secrets, all written with words and poetry that will change your life. An absolute MUST READ.

    Everless

    A great read for preteens but very cliché-ish book
