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 encounters danger and temptation in the guise of the Gerling heir, Roan, 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 for ever ... and possibly the future of time itself.
I went into Everless thinking it was a time travel/fantasy book but I was kinda wrong. It’s actually about a girl who can manipulate (i.e. stop and slow down) time. It’s not quite the same thing. I need to start reading synopses before I request things.

Alenna is being hunted. She can run and hide. Or she can stand and fight. Alenna is being chased by the government that destroyed her life. Determined to strike back, she joins the uprising. But victory has a high price. Will she risk everything and return to the Wheel? Or will she leave Liam, the boy she loves, to his fate? Battered. Bloodied. Defiant. Alenna's fight for survival continues.
I sit in an uncomfortable metal chair, facing a row of six scientists in white lab coats. These are my inquisitors.
The romance in this book ruined it for me. I was so excited to see Alenna and co. start to fight back against the oppressive government who sent them to the island in the first place. I mean, this is called The UPRISING, after all. However, not much happened in this book aside from the constant “I love you”‘s and “I don’t want you to get hurt”‘s, much to the disgust of everyone involved.

Kyla shouldn't be able to remember anything. But she can - and she's beginning to realize that there are a lot of dark secrets locked away in her memories. When a mysterious man from her past comes back into her life, she thinks she's on her way to finding the truth. But the more she learns about her history, the more confusing her future becomes.
I was blown away by Slated when I read it last year, and I am so happy that I finally got the chance to see what was next for Kyla. I enjoyed Fractured a lot, and I thought it was a very pleasant read. It did drag a little in the middle, but the climax was fantastic. Lots of shooting, blood, fighting, and backstabbing!
