Rated: 5 Stars
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.
Absolutely amazing! I love when I come across a book that completely pulls me in and I get lost in the pages. King Hall definitely did that for me. It swept me into a mystical world of young Vampires, Mages, Shifters and Elementals. I was captivated from the beginning and wasn’t able to put it down until the last page. This is a story of love, loss, and friendship. It is full of danger, drama, action and mystery. I was kept on edge trying to figure out what would happen next through out the book. Scarlett Dawn has created a great first book in a series I will be devouring. I have so many questions that were left unanswered that I am hoping will get answered in the next book. I really connected with all the characters and became invested in finding out what will happen to them. There is an abrupt ending that left me on edge and wanting more, but it just makes me want to get the next book as soon as it comes out. This book is classified as New Adult, but while there are hot sexual situations and the characters are 19 and up, I think it falls somewhere between New Adult and Young Adult. I think as the series continues that will progress though. I highly recommend this book! It’s a book that falls into several genres, but it is just a great story that I think everyone will enjoy. I loved it and can not wait to see what Scarlett Dawn has I store for the characters in the next book!
