In the land of Sempera, the rich control everything - even time. Ever since the age of alchemy and sorcery, hours, days and years have been extracted from blood and bound to iron coins. The rich live for centuries; the poor bleed themselves dry.
Jules and her father are behind on their rent and low on hours. To stop him from draining himself to clear their debts, Jules takes a job at Everless, the grand estate of the cruel Gerling family. There, Jules will encounter danger and temptation when she falls for the Gerling heir, who is soon to be married.
But the web of secrets at Everless stretches beyond her desire - and the truths Jules must uncover will change her life forever...and possibly the future of time itself.

Failed to fulfil potental
Very slow start however I decided to hang in there as the story had so much promise and potential. In the end the author completely let me down. The so call twist was predictable. No intelligence or intrigue.... Boring. Jules the main character is frankly stupid. I will not be purchasing the second instalment, life is too short and there are much better storytellers out there.....

cool concept but not quite satisfying in the development of relationships and the ending. there was a cool twist I liked. looks like there will be more which perhaps explains the ending as I was expecting more of a novella feel. probably won't bother with it. it is really cool idea for the selling time thing though.
