    This is the sequel to Before the Broken Star and sees Everley chasing the sword that was stolen by Prince Killian Everley is determined to fulfil her promise to Father Time but to do so means she needs to convince those around her that it s possible to travel to a world under the seas As with the previous story it seems that Killian is always one step in front and poor Everley and her friends do seem to be forever playing catch up I very much enjoyed that we were introduced to new characters particularly Osric and foresee that at some point this journey will see Everley learning a lot about the world of the Elves As Everley travels we meet Giants and even Mermaids but it s the inclusion of those we ve previously got to know Cat and the Fox that gave this warmth and feeling Plus a certain Pixie and her attitude just kept me smiling Alas I cannot divulge what happens but I can say there s a shocking revelation involving Everleys family and if you thought Killian had a simple plan then you clearly underestimate both him and indeed this author My only real issue with this book is that Father Time seems to leave Everley to struggle alone Although I hasten to add I did truly enjoy this and look forward to traveling again with Everley as her battles with Killian are far from over This is a vibrant, fascinating world that takes the reader on a journey with characters to cheer for and what could I want This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    My blog A Magical World of Words Source Netgalley I voluntarily read reviewed this copy All thoughts are my own.I love King s writing I enjoyed it in the first book of this series, and I still do The only disappointing factor is the dialogue it s on the nose and dry, pointing out what the story needs to propel it forward, but not delivering entertainment, subtext, or character I think it s a pity.Otherwise, though, King s prose is lyrical, her descriptions are rich, and the whole book sparkles with a tangible atmosphere The world building is good, to an extent Many details are vague It s very complicated, magic is everywhere and anywhere, and bizarre things just happen It s the way of the world, I suppose magic is a given but from what I could see there aren t many specific parameters Or if they are, they re skimped over In a nutshell you have to suspend disbelief if you want to be swept away And don t ask too many questions.Two things I loved about this second book is A the increased action, and B the complexities of the plot There are exciting, action packed scenes, and the plot has intricate, clever details which pop out in all the right places This makes the story entertaining and intriguing.I explained my opinions on the characters in my review of Before The Broken Star, and I won t repeat them here because I haven t changed my mind Basically, the characters are underwhelming They could be stronger.

    BOOK REVIEW Firstly how awesome is this cover Absolutely beautiful This is book two in the Ever Chronicles series by Emily R King I immediately loved book one and book two was every bit as engaging.King has a real talent for description, her characters are so well thought out and portrayed that they are as vivid as any photograph Landscapes are bright and dark in equal measure Moreover the story itself is so unique it is like nothing I have read before, which for this genre is hard to come by I don t do spoilers so there will be no plot giveaways here However, I will say that there are some moments of love, sadness, terror, hilarity, adventure and even a little gore thrown in for good measure It s not overly long, which I like, chapters are relatively short and nothing is dragged out unnecessarily It s a complex tale made easy to follow by the absolute penmanship of ERK Read them If you love fantasy, you will love these..or I shall eat my hat Thank you to Netgalley and Skyscape Publishing for allowing me early access to this wonderful book.

    I received an eARC in exchange for a honest review.Another amazing adventure in the Ever Chronicles that will keep you guessing until the last page What I loved 1 The prologue explains that the sword is really a broken star and Everley thinks she is a broken girl because of her clock heart Everley s character development is truly beautiful as she realizes that just because bad things have happened to her she s not broken Her potential is still endless 2 The fantasy world expands to seven worlds and the reader learns Killian Markham s true ancestry and villainy The reader also learns about Father Time and the different races 3 Jamison continues to be everything honorable and good Their romance blooms like a daisy 4 Laverick and Claret get page time and they re both delightful 5 I loved the theme that time is love and love is time I m SO ready to sail into the final book, Everafter Song


  5. says:

    With every page, this series gets and thrilling Emily King sure knows how to twist your hearts with heart pounding action and mind blowing plot twists I think my favorite part of Hourglass was the clear character development of the MC, Everley Donovan, as well as the relationship between her and Jamison evolves Throughout her mission to retrieve the sword of Avenel and to stop her nemesis, Prince Killian Markham, Everley learns that the heart is much than just an organ, and that just because a machine works in place of a physical heart doesn t mean she s incapable of love after all. I also love the hero villain dynamic between Markham and Everley It kept me interested and on my towns Now I can t wait for Everafter song

    booksovereverything.com 2019 07 01 in Disclaimer I was given an e ARC in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley Please also note, there are spoilers below for the first book in this series, Before the Broken Star Title Into the HourglassAuthor Emily R KingDescription from Everley Donovan s mission retrieve the hallowed sword of Avelyn stolen by the wicked Prince Killian, who slayed her family and left her for dead Should she fail, the seven worlds will come to an end, as could time itself And no one treasures time than Everley, whose lifesaving clock heart cannot beat forever She has set sail with a rogue crew for the otherworlds, where the key to dethroning the prince lies deep within the Land Under the Wave.But passage through these unknown seas where horrors lurk and pirates rove proves a treacherous gamble The Land Under the Wave was not made for humans, particularly one with a fragile clock heart Here, Everley s tragic past resurfaces unsolved questions Here, too, the prince has hidden secrets precious than pearls, secrets that could fracture the future forever Everley must take back her sword and break free from this watery world before her time runs out or so will everyone else s.Initial ThoughtsWhile I fully admit that the first book in this series was a Bookstagram influenced purchase, I adored it and couldn t wait to read the second book I loved Everley s character and her inner struggle to determine if the revenge she s wanted for so long is worth the cost While she might not be traditionally morally grey , I really enjoyed her storyline in the first book as she begins to learn that she does not need a beating heart to love.Cover ArtI have this book preordered already But I couldn t wait to read it I jumped at the chance to read it on NetGalley I LOVE this cover too I can t wait to see the book without the jacket because I m sure it will be just as beautiful as the first This cover has major shelf appeal and this is a series that I am very proud to have in my library.Series ValueThe first book had me totally sold on this series After having read, Into the Hourglass, there is no doubt in my mind that this is an amazing series So much potential and so many twists and turns I love that this series is so captivating and so full of surprises.I have read a lot of books Like, a lot But this series keeps me on my toes Major props to Emily R King for keeping me guessing I love it.Some Things I LovedThe addition of new characters I was very pleased to meet Osric and learn his back story as well as narrowing down the characters from the first book I really like the Fox and the Cat and I was glad to see that they were included in this story Quinn was missed, but her absence opened the door for some very welcome background that came from new characters.The scene with the sea hag and the princess of the merrows I loved that scene It gave me all kinds of polyjuice potion feels from the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets I knew it wasn t going to go perfectly and I couldn t wait to see how it played out That was definitely one of my favorite scenes.Everley and Jamison s countryside reunion I m so glad she finally admitted her feelings for him.I also really love that the endings of both Before the Broken Star and Into the Hourglass are somewhat final They both capture the end of a section of story and feel conclusive While there are unanswered questions, I didn t feel like there were any major cliffhangers something I appreciate I like that each book both wraps up neatly and transitions to the next part of the story.One Thing I Wasn t Crazy AboutI hated that Everley walked right into Killian s trap Again I was so disappointed in her during that moment It s not a plot flaw so much as it s my disappointment in the hero of this story making, what I think of as, a stupid mistake Insert the shame bell from Game of Thrones Final ThoughtsI loved this book Looking back, I actually love Before the Broken Star even now because of it Into the Hourglass made an already strong story, even better Emily R King has built a truly captivating and fascinating world with characters that I am heavily invested in I cannot wait to continue to read this story Recommendations for Further ReadingDaughter of the Pirate King and Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller although Before the Broken Star is not a tale of pirates, a large portion of it takes place on the sea and travelling Also, Alosa and Riden remind me so much of Everley and Jamison.Everless and Ever by Sara Holland I think these books are similar to Before the Broken Star because of the time element Everley constantly worries about living on borrowed time and not knowing when her time will run out The setting of Everless has an interesting take on life, immortality, and the idea of borrowed time.Dark Breaks the Dawn and Bright Burns the Night by Sara B Larson this is another story with an interesting concept of time Also, there are strong parallels between the plot through elements such as romance, curses, and family legacies.Release Date August 20, 2019Don t miss the final book in this epic trilogy coming out in December 2019

    ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for honest review Into the Hourglass is the sequel to Before the Broken Star , part fairy tale, part pirate adventure redemption quest It was a fun read, and I enjoyed it.This book has a great cast of characters Jamison is the actual best, he s sweet and honorable and a great counterpoint to all of the madness going on around him Evie is sweet and resilient and insecure She refuses to admit her feelings for Jamison, even in spite of all the time is love rhetoric, and the fact that they re already married It was frustrating in an enjoyable way that Jamison is clearly trying so hard to be good to her and she s pushing him away.Their entire group of friends is unfailingly naive for a group of people who are constantly getting betrayed Killian is a great and disturbing villain, because he s charming and wily and cruel, and people keep falling for his beautiful face That felt believable and sad I liked the nods to fairy tales and well known tropes they are literally inside a whale at one point, there is a crocodile who likes clocks, King Dorian loves his merrow children These are sweet spins on familiar stories incorporated into a story that feels totally different.This sequel feels like a Saturday afternoon action movie It s sweet, fun, and totally enjoyable My complaints The use of first person present tense always surprises me It feels like such a weird narrative choice I write, in full irony, in first person present tense The end happens very quickly The whole plot sort of felt like a runaway train at this point Evie showed absolutely no surprise about a rescue coming for her at the last moment, she mysteriously seems not to care about her clock taking years off of someone else s life even after her Uncle sacrificed himself for her, and then all of a sudden they were never legally married because the ship went down and there s no record There seemed to be so many things crammed in at the end, it was hard to process I am hoping this means King is setting up to have them get married for real in the next installment, and on their own terms I love Everly and Jamison so I still enjoyed it, but it felt messy.All in all, this was an enjoyable read and I will keep an eye out for the third installment

    This book picks off immediately after the events of book one in The Ever Chronicles in which Everley is enlisted by Father Time to thwart the cast away prince and retrieve the sword of Avelin Their path is blocked and the World Under the Wave is entered creating its own difficulties As time is both on her side and fighting against her Everley must push herself both physically and emotionally to become the person she is meant to be.Once again Emily King created a magical and enchanting world that I could not help but be consumed in Everley is an amazing character that has flaws that are relatable but an undeniable strength that shines through in every moment I love the combination of Everley and Jamison is fantastic and the slow burn of their love and the chemistry that it creates it to die for This combination of worlds creates such a unique story that I feel as though endless spin offs could be created even if this is only a trilogy I think I liked this book than book one because we were able to see character development both for Everley, who previously did not believe that she could love since her heart was broken, and for the side characters like the Fox and Cat who I also SHIP Thank you Netgalley and Skyscape for the advanced readers ebook
