Fall ~ Review

Fall ~ The Cold Mark Saga
by Scarlett Dawn 
Expected publication date: October 7, 2014
 Blurb:
A savagely wicked new adult sci-fi series blasts off with Fall, the first novella in The Cold Mark Saga...

Only one thousand Humans survived The Travel from the shattered Earth. Some Humans say it was their penance for crushing such beauty. Eighteen-year-old Braita merely thought it was pathetic - pathetic that her people had been that blind.

Now, the Humans live in the solar system, Kline, where three planets are habitable. Joyal, the smallest planet, is embraced by the Humans - their family to love as they had never loved Earth. Though a planet covered mainly in water is dangerous real estate to dwell upon.

Their worry turns into devastating reality when Braita’s blessed village is struck by a tsunami. Population numbers must be kept to a minimum. Drastic measures must be taken. Braita’s life is twisted in brutality when she is chosen as one of the three hundred Humans to be removed from Joyal…and sent to the Mian, the aliens to fear, on the planet Triaz.

Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita must adapt to a dark life as a slave of the Mian society. Her existence depends on it…and possibly, the fall of her heart.

Welcome to the awesome that is Scarlett Dawn!, July 18, 2014Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Romance Awesomeness wrapped up in a short story you will want more of! WELL DONE!! Scarlett Dawn never ceases to amaze me! She has masterfully hooked me on 3 completely different stories in a few months time!! She executes each of them so spectacularly I couldn't begin to tell you which is my favorite!!
Paranormal lover that I am I was first pulled in by her Forever Evermore series. In between books 2 & 3 of that series I quickly devoured her novella Obsidian Liquor (included in The Obsidian Collection anthology) while eagerly awaiting this release of Fall.
Scarlett's descriptive stories consistently jump to life before me, not just the main characters either. To achieve this even in her shorter stories captivates me making me love her work even more! For example, while reading Fall, it felt as if I were observing these other worldly plants & colors through Braita's eyes as she experienced them for the 1st time, and it does not stop there. This human who must travel to an unknown world to survive quickly realizes this is now home. Imagine being forced to abandon your crumbling world that will no longer sustain your people, rebuilding a utopia so-to-speak only to have to abandon it as well, & your only options being to choose to coexist with otherworldly beings you've only heard terrifying tales of or cease to exist. If you ever watched Terra Nova (before it was cancelled) then you will completely get what I mean. Even in the "terrifying places" you can not only see & feel the odd creatures, buildings, landscape, & their ways of life but appreciate it as well...only to later learn all things are not as they seem. At that moment this shocking cliffhanger will leave you speechless!

 King Hall ~ Forever EverMore ~ Book #1
Publication Date: August 1st, 2013
 
Blurb:
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 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 realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the
revolution.

King Cave ~ Forever Evermore ~ Book #2 
Publication Date: January 1st, 2014
Blurb:


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?

King Tomb ~ Forever Evermore #3
Release date: October 8, 2014

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.
