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. ...

    What if the person to be feared is me? I know you shouldn't go into a book expecting the worst, but these days it's hard not to approach any new YA fantasy without some trepidation. The genre is often tropey and unoriginal. Publishers churn out versions of the same old story again and again. It's hard to find the hidden gems among the pile. But Everless really surprised me.It's not a perfect book by any means and Holland does fall into some traps...

    Release date: January 2, 2018Every so often I find a book that I simultaneously want to shove at everyone I see, yet also keep hidden & secret... because I just love it SO MUCH? I really don't have the right words to explain how much I adored this entire story. It's easily one of the best YA fantasy books I've ever read and totally a new favorite! Jules lives in a world where time is drawn from blood and forged into the currency of blood-iron coi...

    4.5 starsOh, I loved this. Full of mystery, intrigue, and... well, more mystery. The plot was super fun and unique, and for the life of me, I couldn't predict a thing. Ladies and gentlemen, we have a page-turner here. I'm pretty sure I read the whole thing in almost 24 hours - I seriously couldn't set it down after the 20% mark.Really quick - a big thank you to the publisher for providing me with an arc!In a world where time is bound to blood, an...

    Imagine a world where time is used as currency, extracted from the blood in your very veins (turned into blood-iron coins). A plethora of ideas may pop into your head including the possibility of robbers in the form of bleeders to steal time from you. The world building here is fantastic as Sara Holland creates a world where the rich tax the poor, ultimately having centuries to live while the poor are continually struggling to get food on their ...

    You can also find this review on my blog HereActual Rating 3.5When i first read the synopsis of this book i couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. My expectations were high and i already had a pretty good idea of how this story was going to go. Well, everyone… I wasn’t just wrong, i was completely mistaken! This story took a totally different turn that i wasn’t expecting and to be honest it made it so much more enjoyable. Mystery and intrig...

    "All of these things are tied together in shifting and complicated ways, yet still nothing is clear." Woah. Just WOAH. What did I just read? Right after finishing the book I was speechless and I literally didn't do anything at all for half a day just because I was so shook - Everless completely blew me away okay I just want the second book NOW even though the first book is yet to be published. Guys, honestly, this book is gonna be the next big th...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “Don’t let her see you. She’ll know you. It’s not safe.” This was a YA fantasy story about a world where time was used as currency.I liked Jules in this, and I thought she was brave to do what she did, and to try and protect her father the way she did. The storyline in this was about Jules trying to make enough money to save her father’s life....

    Jules lives in a world laced with poverty, where the price is the very blood in your veins. Ten years ago, Jules and her father witnessed a terrible accident causing them to flee the noble family’s estate they once called home. But with her father fading, she is forced to return under the watchful eye of her childhood tormentor. A royal wedding is quickly approaching and Jules is thrown into the midst of mystery, intrigue and a sinister secret....

    I loved the concept of time as currency. People having to bleed time from their life to pay for basic necessities resonated with how working for so little nowadays feels like its draining peoples life away. In Everless we follow Jules who decides to take a job at the palace to help her father who's life has been almost conpletely drained away to pay rent. Once there she uncovers some dark secrets that will forever change her destiny.I thought Jul...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review. "Time is a prison. She is the key. Packed with danger, temptation and desire - a perfect read for fans of The Red Queen.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 b...

    So first post back after my rather more extended than planned downtime belongs to Everless – a book I read in one big gulp of a sitting whilst downing maltesers at a rate of knots and hanging off every single word. Definitely one of my top reads of this year that will be released on the world in 2018 – watch out for this one, it has a knack of making time do funny things…The blurb on my proof called it “an intoxicating new series” and I...

    Checkout my full review on my blog! http://omgbooksandmorebooks.blogspot....The premise of the book lured me. But I was left a bit disappointed at the end. The idea is so unique and it reminded me of the movie In Time. I wish there was more this book. I feel like I've read certain things before in other books. This book is unique but I wish there was more. Though, I feel like this is a good set up for book 2.

    I received a finished copy of this novel from Hachette Australia in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.Everless is the book I so desperately needed to pull me out of my book slump and it surpassed all my expectations. Whilst I had to read Everless in two sittings (thanks adulting) I was immersed from start to finish and I found myself enthralled by Hollands writing.Everless is told from the point of view of our main protagonis...

    I absolutely loved Everless! its probably one of the better YA fantasies I have read in awhile.From page one I was sucked into the world, it is so detailed, but not complicated. I also found the concept to be pretty unique and I kept me intrigued to find out what was going to happen next. I'm kind of sad that I'll now have to wait a while for the sequel! This is definitely going to be a must read for 2018

    I loved this book! The setting at the beginning sort of reminded me of a mixture of Red Queen and The Hunger Games, and I did worry in case Everless was just going to be another typical YA fantasy. But I needn’t have worried because this book can definitely hold its own! The main thing I loved about Everless was the idea of their currency being made from a person’s lifetime; the amount of time a person has in their life is extracted from thei...
