The Indigo Teen Staff Pick of the Month is a program where over 100 employees vote on their favourite read for the month! This is super cool because the pick is 100% the BEST pick of the month! I’m so excited to participate in the reveal and give you all the details on this months pick. Use #indigostaffpicks on your social media to show us your photos and tweets. The January 2018 pick is Everless by Sara Holland.
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.
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I am so excited to read it and find out how time is used as currency in this fantasy.
