Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! Until then I will be joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can’t-Wait Wednesday.
Happy Wednesday y’all! This week I’m excitedly waiting on Everless by Sara Holland. I feel like it’s been too long since I read a good, high fantasy and I’m really looking forward to this one. If the cover didn’t catch your attention, the blurb should! It reminds me a little of In Time (remember the Justin Timberlake movie about time being a commodity), time is the currency here too which has me excited. A little mix of sci fi with my fantasy always makes me happy 😀
Everless by Sara Holland
Series: Untitled #1
Published by HarperTEEN on 2018-01-02
Length: 336 pages
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.
