I know I'm not the only blogger who struggles to read all the books on their to read mountains, there are just so many amazing books out there and not enough hours in a day to actually read them all. Anyway, I want to continue highlighting a few that are on my radar but I haven't quite managed to get to yet.
I've been wanting to read Sara Holland's Everless duology ever since I first heard about it so I honestly have no excuses about why it's taken me this long to get to it. I really do need to bump this up the list because it sounds fabulous and the fact that both books have already been published is a huge bonus.
In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything - even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry.
Jules and her father are behind on their rent and low on hours. To stop him from draining himself to clear their debts, Jules takes a job at Everless, the grand estate of the cruel Gerling family.
There, Jules encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, who is soon to be married. But the web of secrets at Everless stretches beyond her desire, and the truths Jules must uncover will change her life for ever ... and possibly the future of time itself.

I have to include the US cover for this book too because, well just look how beautiful it is:
Isn't it stunning? I'm very, very tempted to buy the American hardback! Have you already read this series? If you have make sure you leave me a link to your reviews in the comments so I can see what you thought of it.
Sounds fun! The idea of extracting time from the blood of othrs is certainly original, and this does looks like a good series!ReplyDelete
It's a really interesting premise isn't it Greg, I really must get around to trying this series soon!Delete
