Book Musings - Chosen Fool by Scarlett Dawn

Title : Chosen Fool 
Author : Scarlett Dawn
Series : Forever Evermore, #5

Release day: February 5, 2016

Blurb :

The second saga in the bestselling, Forever Evermore series continues with Chosen Fool, where deception runs deep and Caro’s transitioning life turns even more deadly…

Caroline Jules has received news of a lifetime. She’s going to be Queen to ‘her’ people. Instead of running, as any sane criminal would, she faces the mêlée with all the wits and savvy that her difficult life has honed. With her best friend, Sin, at her side, Caro pushes past the animosity her power inevitably brings, and prepares to rewrite her future.

Until the night Sin leaves, and she is alone.

Now, Caro must face the Royal world and all its intrigues and intricacies by herself. People aren’t always as they appear—and danger lurks behind even the most pleasant face. When a threat not even the Elders can handle puts her new tribe in danger, Caro takes matters into her own hands. Armed with the power of the mysterious spirit Elementals, Caro’s determined to eliminate the evil ransacking the Mysticals. All she needs is time.

But time waits for no fool…and time isn’t as straightforward as it seems.

My Book Musings :

I received a free copy of the ebook from the author via Netgalley. It doesn't affect my review in any way.

If you guys have read my other reviews on Scarlett Dawn's other series books, then you would know I am a fan of this author and have loved all her books so far! And add to that I have read the Forever Evermore first saga ( I haven't gotten around to reviewing them yet!), I was sure to enjoy this new one of hers. 

The starting was a bit cumbersome to get into for me  since I had read the other books a while back so I floundered a bit to remember all the characters. If you are reading from the beginning of the series, then you would have no problem assimilating it. After a few chapters, I got into the groove of the tale. 

The familiar characters were upto the standards established in the previous books with their actions and reactions. The newer ones also added their special tang to the story. I especially loved Mrs Damon! She elicited lots of reactions from me from disbelief to humour. Caro does get into the most unusual situations. She always manages to surprise me. I preferred the second half Leric to the first one. And I am expecting more from him!

The story pace was quite fast, incidents almost piling up at times. But there were a few scenes, I don't remember which ones, which caused me to glance at the page count which is rare for me to do. Otherwise, the time literally flew while reading. The complexity of the plot as usual is quite synonymous with the author. She does add more intricate details to her writing. 

The ending of the book quite sudden and unexpected. The unexpected part gave me pause and the sudden end has me whetted for more and I can't wait for the sequel. More sleepless nights I believe!!

My Rating : 4.5/5
