About the Book:
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.

Notes and Opinions:  Looking for a new fantasy to read in 2018? Check this one out! The plot was great and it felt very original with a touch of things that we have seen before.  The magic system in this one really stands out and I loved all the writing.  The mystery is another thing this one had going for it.  You just didn't really know what was going on and who to trust etc.  I found it very engaging and its another one that I couldn't put down.  I loved Jules and how the story started out. Although this book was not perfect it was very close and I can't wait for the next installment.
