King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

Thursday, September 5, 2013
Summary: 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 realizes the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the revolution.
 
Review: King Hall was a quick, enjoyable read. Although there were some elements that were a little ridiculous overall the story was interesting with come cool world building and interesting characters. The friendship between the four main characters was the core of the story and the best part their relationship was full of understanding, trust, and loyalty that were the true focus of the story. Romance took a backseat to the friendships and I found that to be refreshing. Although some of the world building seemed a little bit of an information dump it was so cool that I found myself really minding. Although I would have liked to see a little more about the Kings and how they are chosen, there’s always the next book!
Lily, the main character, starts out a little grating but really grew on me as the book went on. She comes into her power and herself and becoming a more well-rounded, interesting character. I also enjoyed the characters of Jack, Ezra, and Pearl each interesting in their own way and how they all interacted together. I am excited for the next installment to see where the story is going to lead.
