About King Tomb (Forever Evermore #3)
From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the bestselling first Forever Evermore trilogy.
Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability.
When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller’s private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment.
They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can’t control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.
My Rating: 5 Stars
Note: If you have not read the earlier books in the trilogy, this review contains some vague spoilers. I highly recommend reading this series in order.
“And yes, I would be having many helpings of this man, no matter the obvious cost to my soul… because it was already beginning to feel like he completed it.”
King Tomb is an epic conclusion to an epic trilogy that has the most epic of love stories. Confession time: I cried writing this review. I spent the two books falling in love with Lily and Ezra, rooting for their romance, laughing at their antics, and feeling breathless at their intense and passionate connection. I tore me apart when their relationship was threatened and they were pulled apart. It was soul crushing watching two characters who so obviously belong together struggle to find each other all over again.
What would you do if you woke up in a world with no memory of your true love, only an empty, black hole where your heart and love used to reside? I don’t know what I’d do. Lily chooses to harden herself, to become a perfect killing machine and commit herself to winning the Com war. Ezra does much the same and they become hard, cold, and emotionless, with no recognition for the happiness they once had. So here’s the bonus: we get to see Lily and Ezra meet all over again, get all of that intense emotion and sexual chemistry all over again, and wait breathlessly while wondering if they’ll ever figure out what happened before. I bit my nails nubs and loved every second of it.
This installment is a fantastic addition to an already awesome series. It has everything I’ve come to look for from this series and this author, brave writing with exciting plot twists, action, adventure, mystery, mind-blowing sex, lovable characters, engaging world building, brilliant dialogue, and clever wit. This book felt just a bit darker but the characters are older now, have been through hell, and there’s so much at stake. I missed seeing as much of Jack and Pearl but was totally satisfied by Lily and Ezra’s story. I can’t recommend this series enough and absolutely can not wait to see what’s to come.
“My heart broke time and again, then blistered with agonized adoration. It pumped deep within my soul. The blackness that had consumed me was flooded with nothing but pure, gut-wrenching love.”
