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’ 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 12 lifetimes ago. Now, Jules must piece together the stories of her past lives to save the person who has captured her heart.

I have to say the story in and of itself was very good however I feel like the entire plot moved so slowly and when we reach the end of the story you find yourself wanting more. It’s definitely worth reading or listening to but the development of the story doesn’t shine a light to a book like glass throne.

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency - extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one's own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries. No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings' palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night.

This book was fantastic, there’s a lot about if you’re a throne of glass fan and it’s not quite at the par of that series but it is very unique. My only complaint is that it is a slow story line I was hooked but not thrilled until the last hour of the book but will definitely follow this one through.

I looked for a new book for months and just stumbled across this one and hands down is now a top favorite. I’ve always love the whole magic scene like Harry Potter and such and this one created a strong female character whose not so washed up in a love story that it ruins the action and heroism! This felt like a compilation of all my favorite bits and pieces from large iconic movies such as Harry Potter magic, hunger games action, and a little pride and prejudice character development. Can not wait to listen the second book, will be dying for the third!

This was one of the best series I think I've listened to. All of the books have taken me 6 months to get through but each one kept getting better until the end. It took a while for a few characters to grow on me but by the end of the series character and story line development was superb.
