Rise ~ Review

Rise ~ The Cold Mark Saga ~ Book #4
Publication Date: April 10, 2015
USA Today bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, scorches the pages with her fourth installment of The Cold Mark Saga, where secrets are revealed and heinous acts jump to life... 

Braita Valorn has found herself in another precarious situation. A battle rages on the shores of Joyal and the Mian are shaking the sand with their war cries. Trapped below ground inside the President's bunker, Braita isn't even safe. 

The Mian won't stop. They'll never give up the fight until they are satisfied. 

When steel doors are blown and gunfire erupts, Human blood floods the ground. 

Judgments are made, an archaic stand within Mian laws, and Braita finds herself charged with treason. But never one to sit during a battle, she risks her last chance of release on one set of Plumas.
Will Braita find herself in more trouble of her own making or will she rise past atrocity to obtain her freedom?

Rise is action packed & full of drama. I have absolutely loved every single book Scarlett Dawn has released although I found myself in a bit of a pickle this go round. This series has been one I've loved every minute of from the beginning, but this last installment had me questioning whether or not I am still a fan of Braita. And one of my other favorite characters, Rule, seemed to have jumped ship into a whole new tale while going to a much darker place. I truly never saw that coming. For a moment it was as if we were thrown into an episode of Criminal Minds (Scarlett style of course). While neither of these issues ruined it for me entirely I felt like everything I "knew" about these characters was wrong. The new characters & plot twist got my attention back & has some real potential. Scarlett's writing is still superb & I am looking forward to the next! Here's hoping that Braita & her fab 4 can get back on track. I have really enjoyed them.

Fall ~ The Cold Mark Saga ~ Book #1
Expected publication date: October 7, 2014

A savagely wicked new adult sci-fi series blasts off withFall, 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.

 October 31, 2014
The second installment to the bestselling Cold Mark serial launches with Sink, where fear and willpower battle from within…

Braita Valorn’s pampered existence with the Plumas of the west was cut short by her own hand. Being their Soul only complicates matters as she hides inside their enemy’s territory. Danger lurks, and Braita’s lack of knowledge of the planet, Triaz, is now abundantly clear.

Braita’s only strength against the deadly Mian is the blessed sun that lights the day hours.

On a mission to find her best friend, Jax, she must infiltrate the Crank Pit, a brutal complex where Mian enter, only to leave absent a heartbeat. Nothing transpires as planned. Braita’s reckless behavior lands her right into her adversaries’ custody—the Plumas of the east. Will Braita find the answers she’s been searching for…or will she sink further into a sensual world she never thought possible?
