TIME IS A PRISON. SHE IS THE KEY.
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 tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
And in Sara Holland’s debut novel, EVERLESS (HarperTeen), 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 escape 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.
I really enjoyed reading EVERLESS and Sara Holland’s unique prose. I’m not necessarily a big fan of teen fantasy, but I was intrigued by the concept of shifting time and the plot kept me reading and falling into the story. Sara Holland is a solid storyteller with many teen fantasies to write and share. Readers are the winners.
