Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine
In the land of Sempera, time is extracted from blood and used as payment. Jules Ember and her father were once servants at Everless, the wealthy Gerling family’s estate, but were cast out after of a fateful accident a decade ago. Now, Jules’s father is reaching his last hour, and she will do anything to save him. Desperate to earn time, she arrives at the palace as it prepares for a royal wedding, ready to begin her search into childhood secrets that she once believed to be no more than myths. As she uncovers lost truths, Jules spirals deeper into a past she hardly recognizes, and faces an ancient and dangerous foe who threatens her future and the future of time itself.
Time as payment is everything I’ve ever wanted
That cover is very wizard of oz to me but like in the best way
This just sounds deliciously dangerous
What do you think of time as a form of payment? What do you think would make an interesting form of payment?
