***Lesley's Review of King Tomb (Forever Evermore) by Scarlett Dawn

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.

Lesley's Review

This series just keeps getting better. I can always count on Scarlett to reel me in. She never lets me down.This is the third installment in the Forever Evermore Series. The plot continues to thicken. New people are introduced and we have more questions that are begging to be answered. You know what I say to that? Bring it on. I could spend forever in this little world.

King Tomb starts us a couple of months out from where we left our crazy group off in the previous installment. I don’t know about you all, but I was like a fiend waiting for a fix until I got this book in my hands. I had no idea how this was going to play out. I was terribly upset that they were separated and had no clue of the love they had between them, all of them.  Although, the primary focus in this book is Ezra and Lily, we do get some of Jack and Pearl towards the end.  Have Faith my friends.

 In the beginning Lily is angry and frustrated. She has shut herself off to emotions, to people. She feels betrayed or let down by the man who claims the un-biological role of her father. While Lily can’t remember her past, she knows something happened. Obviously, she’s pregnant and can’t remember how exactly that happened. She feels completely empty and lost. Being the strong, -keep on moving- person that she is, she channels that into winning battles and being the no-nonsense Queen Shifter she has to be.  Then add being a mother on top of that, Lily hasn’t the time to be messing around. She has a child to protect, because she apparently, slept with a vampire.

It doesn’t take long for things to get moving in the storyline. So, the torture of the two being apart is soon quelled. JUST…maybe not the way you’d expect it. Let’s just say it hasn’t been easy for Ezra either.  Poor guy seems to be struggling and channeling his demons into extracurricular activities.

“When it comes to others, love inevitably brings pain, which we both suffered immensely during this last year.”

These two go toe to toe, and eventually, things start to fall into place.  They start to figure things out. All kinds of things will make you say “ah Hah, that’s why.”
But can they find that flame again or just a mutual understanding?
These two are my favorite kick-ass couple. Leave it to them to make you laugh and swoon all at the same time.  It’s just like being part of the family.  No matter what Ezra is willing to step-up to the plate to protect his child. (Swoon worthy) He just doesn’t see how it happened with Lily.

It’s almost like watching it all happen all over again.  I loved every minute of it.

I can’t wait to see where the story line is going. I’m intrigued by this one character who seems to be hindering, and yet, helping all at the same time.  I’m not sure what exactly he is up too. I can’t wait to figure out just what in the heck is actually going on with him and a her. I guess I’ll have to keep reading this series to figure out all the missing pieces. Darn, that’s just torturous. I’m kidding of course, but it will be torture until the next installment is released.
King Tomb is 4.5 Fantabulous stars.
