Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Debut author Sara Holland creates a promising fantasy with an intriguing premise that, despite a few bumps, will be enjoyed by fans who like fantasy, mystery, adventure, and a smidge of romance. Everless gives us a variety of relatable, compelling characters, along with some villains, who keep the pages turning as the mystery and intrigue build. Readers will relate to Jules' struggle to make ends meet as well as her desire to know the truth about herself and her family.

Experienced readers may not be surprised by some of the twists that develop, especially about who's to be trusted and who isn't. And Jules is sometimes frustratingly slow to figure things out. Author Holland really keeps things moving as the mysteries deepen and Jules' adventures broaden, and she builds an immersive, imaginative world. Beware of the cliffhanger ending that screams for a sequel.
