King Hall by Scarlett Jade
A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall…
King Hall — where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies.
Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning friendships with the other three Rulers: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life.
Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.
I have seen so many people raving about this book that I had to buy it. Now I know why. That was an excellent ride. It was definitely a different take on the paranormal world and I LOVED it. I really liked how all the mysticals worked together. Normally you have one group (vampires typically) fighting another group (normally shifters) or there is some type of antagonistic behavior between them, they rarely get along. In this book, they HAVE to work together. The bond between Lily, Jack, Pearl, and Ezra was beautiful. You wish you had the kind of bond with anyone. I kept hoping that …… would get together with ……, seriously, no spoilers, I promise. Talk about a build up though, man. I kept hoping. I’m not telling who or if they did.
There were moments I laughed out loud, there were moments I sat there hoping for a certain outcome, then hoping for something else. It was fast passed and had everything you could ever want in a paranormal book (and it all worked).
It was brilliant.
I honestly couldn’t put it down.
I cannot believe this is Scarlett Dawn’s first book. It was perfect. Absolutely perfect! Very well written/edited, a story that keeps you entertained/totally absorbed in the book, and since this is going to be a series, an ending that while it doesn’t leave you hanging completely, leaves you wanting so much more of this group.
I need the next book. Scarlett, I NEED the next book.
Someone is going on my favorite author list.
