Booklist Review: "In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency. Your time can be taken away in an instant, especially if you're a servant in the Gerling household, the most powerful family in the city of Everless. Long ago, Jules and her father fled Everless due to an accident with the Gerling children. Now, in order to save her father from his growing time debt, Jules must return to Everless, even though doing so puts her in grave danger. Jules quickly gets swept into the violent secrets of the Gerling family and the Queen of Sempera. As Jules begins to unwind their secrets, she learns that she might have more power than she ever thought possible. Holland's debut is set in an intricate and immersive fantasy world, a world she skillfully builds through layers of flashbacks and memories. The concept of Everless is refreshing and unique, and readers will be desperate to figure out Jules' history as she unravels it. Those same readers will be eager to dive back into the world of Everless, so here's hoping for a sequel.--Shepard, Amanda Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Set in a world in which blood, iron, time, and currency are inextricably entwined, Holland's complex debut novel blends myth, palace intrigue, and magic into a tale of self-discovery. To avoid eviction, 17-year-old Jules Ember takes a position at Everless, the estate of the powerful Gerlings. Jules still has feelings for her childhood friend Roan Gerling, but she's terrified of his cruel brother, Liam, who is the reason she and her blacksmith father had to flee Everless in disgrace years ago. Roan is to be married to the sweet-natured Ina Gold, the adopted daughter of the queen of Sempera. Jules's father has warned her about the queen, but Jules makes a shocking discovery and must get close to her at any cost. Holland's lush, intricately drawn world hides an undercurrent of darkness underneath a veneer of beauty and finery, and the twists are genuinely surprising. Jules's first-person narration reveals a smart, resilient young woman determined to reconcile her past with an uncertain future. Readers will eagerly await her next journey.
