About the Book
The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling, award-winning King Hall:the revolution is here, but the most dangerous attack may come from within…
The safe, comfortable world of Lily Ruckler and her fellow Mystical Kings and Queens is rocked to the core by the attacks at King Hall. Not only does Lily have to kill the Commoners attacking her people, she also has to assume the mantle of leadership, and bring the surviving Mysticals to King Cave.
It should have been too much, but she is not alone. Ezra becomes her rock, her best friend, the one person who understands. As Pearl and Jack struggle with inconsolable loss, Ezra and Lily work to keep the Mys community safe in their new home, and plan a deadly retaliation.
Their friendship saves them both…but it also draws attention. Whispers. Judgment. It’s not normal for Shifters and Vampires to be friends, and when a horrifying truth is revealed, their relationship morphs from unusual to unspeakable. Lily is good at keeping secrets that could get her killed. Is she willing to risk Ezra’s life as well?
My Rating: 5 Stars
” ‘Open your eyes sweetheart. I want you to see who’s fucking you senseless.’ “
I’m heartbroken, and angry, and emotional, and in love with this book. Truth.
Why am I all of those things, you ask? Because once again, Scarlett Dawn has pulled me completely in to this world she has created, made me fall even more in love with these characters (if that is even possible), and then thrown this world and my emotions in to a tailspin.
Just as intense, if not more, than the first in the series, King Cave gives the reader a fully realized magical world, a brilliant cast of characters, heart-pounding action, danger, laugh out loud humor, heartbreak, friendship, love, and hot sex. Though I missed Jack and Pearl not being a huge part of the story, it was necessary in order to fully experience the chemistry and passion of Ezra and Lily. They are intense: one minute fighting, one minute laughing, and the next minute having amazing sex. I just couldn’t get enough of them. There are so many layers to their relationship: friends, lovers, and loyal comrades.
Every minute of this book kept my head and heart reeling, and the pages flying by. The unexpected just kept coming, and I’m once again impressed with the author’s bravery in the way she handles her characters and their story: she pulls no punches. The final pages of the book left me heartbroken, and just a tiny bit hopeful. It’s clear that even though we are well in to this amazing series, there is so much more story to come. I’ll let that glimmer of hope keep me going until the next installment.
“Straight to the crux of the matter. Duty, What we lived and breathed. I despised it most days… but hating it didn’t change the fact that it needed to be done.”
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
