From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spellbinding 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.

So....the part that you have been waiting for....the review.
I originally began this series reading King Hall; the first book in the Forever Evermore Trilogy. I really didn't know what to expect. I really hadn't done many reviews online so I was a little worried how my reviews would come across since I was so new at writing them. I mean, of course I have talked about books to my friends, but never did I imagine putting them on the internet. How amazed was I? Not only did I get such a positive outpouring, but I also got quite a few new followers of my blog! How exciting! But it doesn't stop there. King Hall was fabulous!!! I couldn't wait for the next one!
Then King Cave showed up in my email. I was so excited to read it that I literally dropped everything I was doing to read it. I had it finished in about 2 days! I had my review already written as I waited for my publish date on my blog. I am such a nerd! I know!
So, when King Tomb came, I thought for sure, 2 days and this will be done. Then life happened. I became so busy that this book got put in the back of my mind. But when the time came for me to read, I couldn't stop! I read the book in about 3 days. This is saying something considering how much I have going on!
This book is everything I thought it would be! I was so upset at the end of King Cave that I cried true tears of agony. So, when I got started on King Tomb, I was a little apprehensive. I didn't know what kind of emotional turmoil Scarlett was going to put me through. So, as the story began, I read it carefully. I truly mean that.
My heart hurt through the first few chapters because I knew what Lily didn't. So, when she got to see Ezra, my eyes teared up and my heart broke. Because neither of them had any idea what I was put through because of them.
As you go through this book, you are automatically thrown into a blender of so many different important things going on all at once. There is no focus, on this, then that, then go back to this, then finish this up. Oh no! You are on the fast train of Scarlett as she whips through all the unimportant things right to the heart of the story. Once you are there, where else could you want to be? With Ezra. That's where!
At the end of the book, something very important happens. The universe is set back in motion. Scarlett gives me back my heart when she gives them back their memories. Yes, the war is important too, but not as important as that moment. When everything begins to make sense in the world.
Scarlett, thank you for the love you put into these books. This trilogy has been truly uplifting to me. These characters have become my friends. If I ever could imagine myself in that kind of reality, I could only hope to be on the winning side. I miss them terribly. When they each held hands and said "I missed you", I thought, "You have no idea". I love them.
This book is mesmerizing. Scarlett's range as an author is phenomenal. This trilogy could potentially be hazardous to your health if you have a heart condition ;). Be inspired. Be engrossed. Be Mystical.
