There’s a price on Everley Donovan’s head. Fleeing from the queen’s false accusation of murder and sorcery, the girl with the clock heart knows there’s only one way to prove her innocence. Everley must catch Killian Markham, the fugitive prince guilty of the crimes for which she’s been condemned. To do that, Everley must follow him into the towering realm of the Silver-Clouded Plain. It’s where flesh-eating Behemoths thrive, long-lost gods hide, and an artifact of destructive force awaits the death grip of the immortal prince.
Haunted by visions of burning Everwoods and bloody battlefields, Everley’s fears are rising. Because the elusive relic threatens more than the very power that drives her clock heart. In Killian’s hands, it can lead to the dismantling of the seven worlds. With everything—and everyone—Everley loves at stake, she must depend on Killian’s one weakness to outwit him: in his mad ambitions, Killian has underestimated her once again. For Everley is the Time Bearer. This is her destiny. The time of reckoning is at hand.
I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed this conclusion to the trilogy – I felt that it was a good wrap up of all the story lines, while still allowing us to experience new things. Everley continues to be a good main character – trying to catch Markham for her own reasons, but also wanting justice. She has such a spark of life in her. I also like that we start to see more of Markham’s reasoning, and how that sits with the other realms. He does become a little cartoonish, but in a good way, as he is a villain, after all.
I also love the side characters in this – I could happily read whole books about their adventures.
We also finally get to see the giants! And that was so cool, as they are more advanced than the humans, and I really liked the small moments of comedy that provides for the reader.
Overall a really enjoyable series, and this is a fitting ending. Emily’s writing continues to shine for me.
