OTHER BOOKS IN THIS SERIES:
“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.”
Great conclusion to a great series! By far my favorite of the 3 books. I loved every aspect. From the world building, to the magic, to the romance and of course the action. I could not put this one down! I was hesitant going into it, because the 2nd book was a little slower for me, but I’m so glad I finished out the trilogy!
In my review for Into the Hourglass (the second book) my biggest complaint was all the repeat information and that it was slow. I expressed that I wished we could have jumped into the action quicker.
Emily King delivered this tenfold in Everafter Song. We jump right back into the action, and there definitely wasn’t as much repeat information in this book. She sucked me in from the first page to the last.
I still truly love the characters in this book. Everley is such a relatable character, and I loved going on this adventure of time with her. Jameson is still the most stand-out character in my opinion. He is ever loyal & protective, but stands by Everley and her decisions and doesn’t try to control her. I also really love one of our side characters- Father Time. He was such an interesting character to read.
Again, King’s writing style is strong. The book had great pacing, and the plot was fantastic.
Highly recommend this series! Very original YA fantasy.
