I have done it. I have finally completed another duology!
I feel so accomplished.
After the events of Everless, Jules Ember finds herself with a bounty on her head.
She’s now on the run with Liam Gerling still at her side. The stakes are high as Jules scrambles to uncover the secrets of her past in order to save her future.
We learn more about the lore of the Alchemist and the Sorceress and how that lore affects the current land of Everless.
The ultimate game of good versus evil is afoot. Who will reign victorious?
Unfortunately, while I think this is a solid YA Fantasy story, for me, it wasn’t overly exciting or particularly memorable.
With this being said, I think for readers who are just breaking into YA Fantasy, this may be a good place to start. For veteran readers of the genre, however, it may seem a bit formulaic.
In spite of not being blown away, I do feel that Sara Holland is a creative and lush writer. I will continue to read more from her in the future even though this duology wasn’t a favorite for me.
Again, I think for younger readers, or for individuals looking to get more into the YA Fantasy genre, this would be a great place to start.
The storyline is easy to follow and the action compelling. If you read the synopsis and it intrigues you, you should absolutely give it a shot!
