Synopsis:

 

A safe haven between four realms. The girl sworn to protect it–at any cost. New York Times bestselling author Sara Holland crafts a breathtaking new contemporary fantasy perfect for fans of Melissa Albert and Holly Black.

 

Hidden deep in the mountains of Colorado lies the Inn at Havenfall, a sanctuary that connects ancient worlds–each with their own magic–together. For generations, the inn has protected all who seek refuge within its walls, and any who disrupt the peace can never return.

 

For Maddie Morrow, summers at the inn are more than a chance to experience this magic first-hand. Havenfall is an escape from reality, where her mother sits on death row accused of murdering Maddie’s brother. It’s where Maddie fell in love with handsome Fiorden soldier Brekken. And it’s where one day she hopes to inherit the role of Innkeeper from her beloved uncle.

 

But this summer, the impossible happens–a dead body is found, shattering everything the inn stands for. With Brekken missing, her uncle gravely injured, and a dangerous creature on the loose, Maddie suddenly finds herself responsible for the safety of everyone in Havenfall. She’ll do anything to uncover the truth, even if it means working together with an alluring new staffer Taya, who seems to know more than she’s letting on. As dark secrets are revealed about the inn itself, one thing becomes clear to Maddie–no one can be trusted, and no one is safe . . .

 

Sara Holland takes the lush fantasy that captured readers in Everless and Evermore and weaves it into the real world to create a wholly captivating new series where power and peril lurk behind every door.

My Review

I thought this was a unique fantasy with great world-building! I thought that the magical realms were intriguing as well as the magic. I also loved all the twists and turns. The characters are interesting and well written. I’m interested to read more about the realms and I’m looking forward to reading book two!

Favorite  Quotes

We see what we want to see, love, but there are no monsters, just people who do horrible things.

Strange that a place comprised of so many rigid  rules, regulations ,and protocols would have, all this time, felt to me like freedom.

It’s so dark out here, yet he seems fully illluminated, like what moonlight and starlight there is has settled on his skin.

Everless by Sara HollandBlog Tour

Everless c

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.

Everless is a unique fantasy filled with twists and turns that keep you guessing throughout the book! The writing is beautiful and the suspense of what was going to happen next made it hard for me to put down. I loved how well written the characters were. Did I mention how much I loved all the twists and turns? Also, the world building is amazing! I really enjoyed reading Everless and I can’t wait to read the second book!
