Listeners will be drawn in and left wanting more by Eileen Stevens's engrossing narration of Sara Holland's fantasy, the first of a pair. Jules is a girl from the kingdom of Sempera, where blood is the source of both money and time and the poor people's only hope for survival is to sell their future years. Jules returns to Everless, the capital, in spite of her dying father's warning to try to save his life. There she begins to face both forgotten hopes and unimagined dangers. Stevens excels in portraying the characters' emotions, especially Jules's. The teen's longing when speaking to Roan and her worry about her father are especially well done. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment. E.J.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2018]
