Evermore by Sara Holland

Hachette, 2019. ISBN: 9781408359525. 368p; p/b.
In the sequel to Everless, Jules Ember is the last reincarnation of an ancient alchemist being hunted by the vengeful sorceress Caro. Despite being a sequel, the interesting fantasy setting explained itself well enough that it could be followed quickly. Chapters are paced perfectly, between their length and their contents, to keep the reader engaged without making them feel forced to continue by a cheap cliffhanger. Jules' struggle to push away people she loves out of fear she'll hurt them, and regrets over the resulting rash decisions add a relatable side to this fantasy story, drawing you closer to a sympathetic character.
