Everless introduces a world where time is currency—it can be added to or drained through blood. Punishments often involve bleeding a person’s time from them. The richest have the most time & can, in theory, live indefinitely. The poorest, like Jules & her Papa must literally bleed themselves dry to pay rent, cutting their lifespan. To save him, Jules takes a job as a servant at Everless, the estate of the Gerlings—one of the wealthiest families in Sempera. A fun, exciting fantasy with a unique twist. I really enjoyed it!

"Sara Holland is a fierce storyteller. Everless gives new and terrifying meaning to the phrase running out of time." --Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval
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.
Fans of Victoria Aveyard, Kendare Blake, and Stephanie Garber will devour this lush novel's breathtaking action, incredible romance, and dangerous secrets.
