Can't wait for the next book to find out what happens. I love this author! It's always exciting to know that you are in for a fantastic adventure in one of Scarlett's worlds. Buy this-you'll be hooked & you won't regret it 😄
I have had Chosen Thief sitting on my kindle since release day, but have only just had time to get around to reading it.
Why did I wait? I have loved the first 3 books in the Forever Evermore series, so I knew I would like this one too.
I loved that we got the 4 kings/queens from the first 3 books, and now we have their new prodigies, which brings a whole new set of fun, games and problems.
I adored the banter between Caro and Sin, so fun, flirty and sexy. But Caro, she is just the best. Love her smart mouth, the way she takes no crap from anyone and gives as good as she gets.
It took a little while to get into the story (not in a bad way). We had gotten used to the characters from the first 3 books, it just took a while to feel out and get to know the new prodigies and characters introduced. I didn't want to put Chosen Thief down once I read it.
I am a die hard fan of this author lady. I think her works range from very good to blow-my-mind quality. This was one of the blow-my-mind jobs. There is minimal world-building, as we already know all about this from the first three in the series (how could we forget) and so the pace is cranking the whole time. Caro is sassy and fierce and *waves face* - oh the sexual tension. If you've read King Hall, King Cave and King Tomb, then you probably won't read this review anyway because you already know how SD writes. And if you haven't read the first three and have just cottoned onto this series, then I have to tell you how completely jealous I am. I wish I could discover these books for the first time, all over again. I'd also highly recommend her Cold Mark novella series (although it is death waiting for each instalment).
Once again I am in awe of this author & the magic she weaves! I LOVE love LOVE this fabulous world Scarlett Dawn has created for us, & I am psyched that the Forever Evermore gang is back bringing us even more awesome! I was so pleased to jump right back into this story after that cliff hanger in King Tomb! It took me a few moments to get my bearings & see where we were on the timeline, but that just added to the fun. The new characters are eccentric & totally growing on me. I look forward to getting to know some of them better. We start out getting a glimpse at Isa all grown up & are immediately thrust into the crazy action packed life of Caro, the Prodigy Elemental who happens to be an inmate of Death Row in the most secure Mystical jail. This chick is not playing around & quickly proves that! Shortly after we are meeting up with some other players who intrigue me: Sin, Brann, & The One (these guys are definitely not for the faint of heart) as well as the newest prodigies. Their journey is sure to be exciting as they are now forced to pay attention & learn from the Kings & Queens we have come to love as well as the Elders who arrive to assist before everything is said & done. I was not expecting to meet a whole new faction either! I foresee great things to come! Boy oh boy, Caro & the other prodigies have no idea what they've been signed up for. I truly can not wait to get my hands on the next installment! **If you have not yet begun this series I highly suggest you begin with King Hall, followed up by King Cave & King Tomb. Reinforcing the importance of the past will ensure you enjoy this adventure for everything it has to give. There is so much back story & character build up that adds to this world, skipping it would leave you with so many more unanswered questions.
