I would give this book 5 for a review.
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.
Jules and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident a 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. Caught in a tangle of violent secrets, Jules must find the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.
I really loved this book! I thought this was a unique fantasy novel. I really adored both the characters and the world building. It was a well crafted mystery that really makes me want to re-read this novel. I think the world building was the stand out in this series and also the lead character of Jules. I really enjoyed this book so much. It was super fast past and kept me so engaged. I really want book two Now. It such a nail bitting read and I could not predict the mystery. I highly rec. this book if you are looking for unique fantasy novel!
