Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book? 
I really did! I read it every free chance I had and probably would have finished it in a few hours if I didn’t have children, work, or other such obligations. 😉

For me, the premise of this story is new. I haven’t read anything like it. Time is currency . . . and that currency is made from your blood. Jules Ember once lived in Everless, but she was forced to leave with her father. But because her father was running out of time, she had to go back. For me, Everless wasn’t action-packed, but it moved and kept me questioning. I kept wondering why Jules wasn’t supposed to go back, why she was warned, why things happened around her. I loved how some characters were pretty straightforward and others were not who I thought they were. I love it when books do that, when they make a character different than they first appeared. Everless had a few characters who surprised me.

Everless was a wonderful read. I didn’t want to put it down, and it left me with a serious book hangover. Even though I have some answers, I still have some questions. Mainly, when will the next book be released???



Would I recommend it? Yes, I would! Definitely.


Have you read Everless? Have you ever had a book hangover?




About the book – from Goodreads: 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.
