King Hall is a new adult fantasy paranormal novel written by Scarlett Dawn, which is slated for release August 1st, but she’s currently lobbying with her publisher to get it released July 25th, if there’s enough pre-orders! She’s so close so I wanted to help her along the way! Even if only 5 people read this and decide it’s worth the pre-order (and it is, I promise) she can get closer! 🙂
** NOTE: SHE HAS DONE IT! 25th is release date.
It’s also currently New Adult Bookclub on Goodreads book of month for August! check that out here!
King Hall’s Blurb:
“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 realizes the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the Revolution.”
Before requesting King Hall on Netgalley, I had read a lot of paranormal fiction. I’ve read about the vampire schools, the werewolf family, the romances, and I’m here to tell you King Hall blew all of them out of the water, including those fantasy titles you can’t turn a corner without hearing about. This is one of the best paranormal fantasy novels I have read, and I’ve read almost every main one out there and many indie ones.
The plot for King Hall makes all the difference, the set up of 4 Kings, each of a different fraction, Shifter, Vampire, Mage, and elemental. This is something I haven’t seen before, rarely does any author tackle two of the creatures but this book tackles 4 sets. We focus on the Shifters, as the main heroine, is a Shifter.
The plot takes twist and turns even in the first third of the book that you do not see coming, you’re heartstrings will be pilled in so many directions they will be sore. The core friendship in the book is real, and hilarious. It’s an insightful book, and a fresh new look at fantasy without beating the dead “vampire/werewolf” horse.
I’ve already blabbed about this book to my friends, blogged about it, and shared it on facebook constantly! I need the second one already, the cliffhanger ending is perfect, and leaves the reading wanting so much more!
I promise you won’t be disappointed! There’s two days left to pre-order and help us get released on July 25th instead of August 1st! It doesn’t seem like a long time, but I promise this book is amazing and you’ll wish the second one was in your hands!
About The Author:
Scarlett Dawn is drawn to all things quirky and off-beat. She believes there are no boundaries for an imaginative soul. Her love of the written word started from at an early age, when her grandmother would take her to bookstores every weekend. Dreams came alive within the books she found there, and now, she is thrilled to share her stories with others who have fallen under the spell of taking fantastical journeys. Scarlett resides in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and two dogs.
