Double Review ~*~ King Hill & King Cave by Scarlett Dawn
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.

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?

Review ~
First, I apologize for totally slacking on writing this review.  But in my defense, I needed to calm down after wanting to through my kindle across the room finishing King Cave and then the holidays were upon us.  I am going to write this review about both books, with little to no spoilers.

I do have to say these are two of the best books I have read in a long, long time. Especially considering they are out of my normal reading genres. This series is a fantasy, paranormal, new-adult series that has a little of everything in it to keep you on the edge of your seat.

There is passion, murder, mayhem, romance, royalty, and so much more.  You have Lily who is thrust into a new life in King Hall and has to make decisions - good and bad- that will not only affect her life but the lives of those around her.  Her best friends, Ezra, Pearl, and Jack, have tough decisions of their own to deal with as they all try protect their loved ones.

I was seriously sucked into King Hall immediately and while it ends with a cliff hanger it wasn't too bad.  King Cave made me want to through my kindle and message Scarlett ranting and raving.  but I refrained.  (LOL - I did really)  Now that these two books have had time to simmer and i have come to grips with how she left me ravaged at the end of King Cave.  I can not wait until she gets us the next book in this series. 

These characters, while young, are growing up fast as they are thrust into their royal positions.  You get a book full of vampires, shifters, mages and elementals.  There is such a variety of the paranormal and how they work together for the greater good.  Lily and her friends will make some tough choices.  Some of them will lead to things getting worse instead of better but it is all part of the learning process.

I highly recommend this book.  If you enjoy paranormal stories, you will enjoy this one for sure.  If you only read erotic stories, you will still enjoy the world Scarlett creates and Kind Cave has more passionate scenes than King Hill!  Read this series, I promise you won't be disappointed no matter what your usual genre is.
