Book Review – Evermore by Sara Holland

evermoreJules confronts the girl who is both her oldest friend and greatest enemy in the highly anticipated sequel – and conclusion – to the Top Ten Bestseller Everless.

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: She 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. Now Jules must piece together the stories of her past lives to save the person who has captured her heart in this one.

My rating: Cyan-Full starCyan-Full starCyan-Full starNo-StarNo-Star

I enjoyed Evermore but I found it lacked the spark of something special that I found in Everless. This was more traditional YA fantasy perhaps. And with none of the mystery and cool magic system of the first book.

I still really liked Jules, and I did really enjoy learning the story of the Sorceress and the Alchemist throughout. I wanted more with Ina though, and Liam left me feeling a bit flat.

There just didn’t seem to be enough content to flesh it out to feel as full as the first. Though I will say that I like how it wrapped up.
