The Forever More series by Scarlett Dawn
King Hallwhere 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 realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the revolution. 

******

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.

King Tomb — 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.

Think Harry Potter meets The Mortal Instruments, but definitely New Adult. All of the main characters are seriously cool, and become thick as thieves. Serious heartbreak and a cliffhanger at the end of the first book. Check out my original post on the first book here.

I recently read the other books in this series and absolutely loved them!! Without giving too much away, I want to share what I loved about each book.

Katiebird reviews Her Favorite book series of 2014

As we get closer to the end of the year, I like to take the time to look back at all of the amazing books I’ve read, in preparation for our Best of the Year lists. We take those lists seriously here at BT, by the way. 🙂

Three of my favorite book series came to an end this year, and I don’t want to miss out on sharing my thoughts on the final books and the series themselves. If you’ve read my profile at the bottom of my posts, you probably noticed that I am the resident paranormal romance girl here, both YA and New Adult. This is definitely my favorite genre, so it should come as no surprise that I love these books!
