Review:
Everless is a dystopian story of royalty in a fantasy world where one's blood is both the currency and your life expectancy. The story follows Jules Ember and her dangerous journey into the heart of Everless, living among the queen as a servant. There are secrets, betrayals, and lots of twists and turns as the story unfolds.

At times the writing felt slow as we learned what was happening for Jules and the kingdom of Sempera. There was a heavy dose of world building which wasn't bogged down too much but did slow and shift the story at times out of the action sequences. There were also plenty of exciting scenes that made me not want to put the book down, especially as the story grew into the later chapters. The first 100 pages is probably the hardest to get through but it was worth it. By then the characters are well developed and the end is worth reading.
