Evermore (Everless #2) by Sara Holland
Jules Ember was raised hearing legends of the ancient magic of the wicked Alchemist and the good Sorceress. But she has just learned the truth: not only are the stories true, but she herself is the Alchemist, and Caro—a woman who single-handedly murdered the Queen and Jules’s first love, Roan, in cold blood—is the Sorceress.
The whole kingdom believes that Jules is responsible for the murders, and a hefty bounty has been placed on her head. And Caro is intent on destroying Jules, who stole her heart twelve lifetimes ago. Jules must delve into the stories that she now recognizes are accounts of her own past. For it is only by piecing together the mysteries of her lives that Jules will be able to save the person who has captured her own heart in this one.
This book was a great sequel to the first book. I found myself wishing for more of the story to be about blood being used as time. Instead, this book had a large focus on the twelve lives of the Alchemist. While this was still an interesting read, it got confusing at times. It would skip back through memories without always giving a warning.
The ending was the best part of the book, as it definitely caught me by surprise. I did not really love the way that the story ended, but I have to say I definitely wasn't expecting it to end the way that it did! I love a good twist.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
