From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the best-selling 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 sa

The first half and some after that was reaaaaalllllly amazing.

Lily and Ezra were amazing. Their anger. Hatred. Sorrow. Pain. Everything was bittersweet, beautiful and gut wrenching. Their child was beautiful. The love they had for their child was beautiful.

And it hurts my heart to say this but the last few chapters with the whole time travel and the new characters that were rushed into the story...I just there was some more that could have been told.

So I finished King Tomb. And I must say, that all in all, I am very pleasantly surprised. After the ending to King Cave, I was incredibly worried about how this one would go. A lot of my enjoyment hinged on Lily/Ezra interaction, and I assumed that would be very limited in this installment.

I'm going to tell you right now--don't worry your pretty little mind about that.

Now I'm just going to list a few more things and I'll post a full review closer to the release date.

The romance is this book broke my heart. To know how Lily and Ezra were with each other and to 'watch' how they were in this book drove me crazy. It took too long for them to find that love again. The passion was always there, but they were just too cold. The coldness was understandable considering what they'd gone through, but it hurt nonetheless. But, at the same time, it was cute to watch them fall in love again without their memories of each other.

I love this series, I really do, and it pains me to say this but I was a little disappointed with the last half of this book. Antonio and Cahal were absolutely adorable and I loved that storyline. I actually wish there could be a spinoff series with more details about their past, that would be amazing. But the reunions and the battle just seemed too rushed to me. The whole ending felt rushed. In King Cave we got a lot more detail and love and friendship but this one just seemed to be more ...more
King Tomb is the third installment in author Scarlett Dawn's Forever Evermore series. I am so happy the first book King Hall was recommended to me last year or else I may have missed out on all this awesomeness! King Tomb is a wonderful addition to an engaging series that I have come to love. I have devoured each of these books within twenty-four hours and the same goes for King Tomb- I just couldn't put it down! Scarlett Dawn is a goddess! There I said it.

The 1st was the best.

I'm disappointed in the third book of the series. I believe that Ms. Dawn must have ran out creativity juice on her third book. We were left in book two wondering how is she going to get the gang of four back together. Well spoiler alert, Not sure to do it give them a memory potion in a vial. Then put together relationships that make no sense. How does Elder Farrar and Elder Cabal even make sense. I don't mind the introduction of a gay relationship, but relationships have to

The anticipation I felt for this book may not have been as great as my friend's but I was pretty psyched about it. Then I realised what this book held in store and I began to reconsider. I'm not going to lie, my reading of this book went something like this "okay this isn't bad...skim skim I supposed to care/be shocked/excited...skim skim the epilogue".

Incredibly disappointing after enjoying the first two so much.

I found King Tomb on Netgalley and nearly died from excitement - no joke. So I requested, crossed my fingers, and waited. THANKFULLY I got approved and I started it pretty much straight away. King Tomb is the conclusion to the Forever Evermore trilogy.

At the end of King Cave (Forever Evermore #2) Lily, Ezra and their fellow royals were in a pretty dire situation. I did wonder how this story was going to play out. I was expecting a reasonable amou

Up front, Scarlett Dawn can write! She has the imagination, the sense of timing and just the right amount of attitude that shines through once again!

King Tomb is coming October 8, 2014 and I had the sweet privilege to get an Advanced Reader Copy! Yes, this book is utterly amazing!!!

Lily and Ezra are still spelled against knowing each other. The war between Commoners and Mysticals have accelerated, making both Lily and Ezra harden, vicious warriors, and leaders of their individual armies. When the Elders have no choice but to put them back together, it becomes a battles of wills and power.

I have some more spoilery stuff that I would like to go over, but I will wait until the book is out on October 8th before adding them to my review at the very bottom underneath a spoiler tag.

Let me start this by saying that I have loved this series up until this book. It was exciting, romantic, and had a large mystery arc that connected all the books. I was a huge fan of King Cave and the best part of that book for me was all of the secondary characters, whether it be the previous King's, Jack & Pearl, or even Bonnie & Clyde I loved them all. Those characters brought so much to the story that I couldn't turn away.

For me some of the magic of the first two books was missing.

The third and final book in the series begins with Lily being sent back to the U.S. to fight. She's unsure why she has to go, but she must. But then something bad happens on the night she wants to check things out, and that leads to a whole world of trouble. And her and Ezra meeting again, even though the don't know who the other is. The also must find a way to end the war before it is all too late.

I loved the first two books but...but this was just disappointing. It left me wanting in almost every aspect: as a continuation of a wonderful series up till now, as a fantasy /urban fantasy romance and especially in the action/adventure aspect. I wanted more, expected more and got very little instead.

In the previous book, we had a hellish ending.

The one thing that I love/admire/am secretly jealous of is Scarlett Dawn’s ability to draw you into her stories world within the first few pages. I am in awe of her brilliance! King Tomb was another such of these tales, so much so that in all honesty it will leave you on the edge of your seat and wanting more.

Disappointing. King Hall was terrific, King Cave was less so and this book left me confused. I still enjoyed the characters and their twisted ways, but the best part of King Hall was the relationship between Ezra, Lily, Jack and Pearl, and the second book had less of Jack and Pearl, while the third book took them out completely.
The resolution of the continuing story line with Philip Masterson was a complete gyp, and I was extremely confused with the Epilogue between Elder Harcourt (

This was a bit of a letdown for me. I love this author and this series and I knew this book led into another trilogy within the overall series, but I would have liked things to be a bit tidier for the four main characters in this trilogy before moving on to the next - even though I know they will appear In future books. Perhaps if the books were released with less time in between I might not be so letdown.

On that note, I seriously dislike the fact that the entire series has already been written

More of the same. I was enjoying the read for what it is and even considering 4 stars to convey my acceptance.

80% in, huge bombshell drops of the Kinsey scale variety! It's so out of character and goes from bad to plain out stupid. Homosexuality is not my thing but I can tolerate a cameo. What I can't tolerate is ridiculousness, it's cheesy and out of character... It's just too much and serves absolutely no purpose.

The last 10% is a cluster-f of bullshit, half the time

This was my least favorite of the series. Like I said with King Cave, what really drew me to this series was the interaction and banter between the Kings and Queens. Pearl and Jack were basically nonexistent in this installment and Lily and Ezra did not know nor like each other. The magic was gone for me, unfortunately.

Also, there were a couple of things left unresolved (e.g., Lily never completed the final task given to her by the dark mage), which was weird to me since this is the end of Lily'

I was really enjoying the book and thought it was going well (Other than being a bit lost because it had been a while since I'd read the previous books) then suddenly that terrible ending happened. I was so confused when julia turned up and from then on didn't have a clue what was happening. It was sloppy and rushed and made no sense.
