Review: King Hall by Scarlett Dawn


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 Prodigies: 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 realizes the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the revolution.

My Review:

WOW seriously wow! This is my new favorite book. I’ll admit that I wasn’t sure about the New Adult genre but Scarlett Dawn blew me away with King Hall. The world is new and familiar all at once. She ripped my heart out right along with Lily’s in the beginning. I cried and yelled and I love that this book was able to pull such emotion from me. 

Lily is a pretty awesome character, she is strong, amazing and has a secret that she has to keep that shapes her whole life. She’s going to make an amazing Queen and watching her and the other Mysticals bond was amazing.

The other chosen future Kings and Queens are also amazing characters who bond through some very difficult times. I can’t wait to see how they handle things together in the future. I adored each and every character in this book.

Ms. Dawn is a mistress of her craft. I need the next book, I need to continue immersing myself in this world, and I honestly don’t know if I ever want to leave this world. Fans of fantasy with strong heroines who know how to kick butt will love this story. I say everyone should read this book, I know I’ll be talking about it for weeks, I loved it that much.
