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.
Chosen Fool is FREAKING.AMAZING! I’m a sucker for books that pull me in and BOY, did Dawn pull out all the stops with this one.
It is year 2035 and Caro has recently replaced the Spirit Elemental Prodigy who died in a car crash. She is the first Spirit Elemental ever to selected and is a total unknown entity.
Caro is an amazing lead character. She is thrust into a ruling/heroine position after living a life as a thief and criminal to survive. She is witty and outrageously funny. Dawn writes Caro in a way that makes her completely relatable.
The One, the leader of the Spirit Elementals, along with 2 of his top advisors and guards has injected themselves into Caro’s life as a buddying prodigy. It seems they want to keep a close eye on her. Even though Caro had a rocky start with The One, it seems he’s still in hot pursuit to stay close by Caro’s side.
I really don’t want to give anything away but I can say, Oh My, I really didn’t see that one coming!
The past rulers, now called Elders and current rulers who are about to turn over their crowns are all present…and once again…I was UTTERLY shocked. WHAT.A.PLOT.TWIST!
I finished Chosen Fool and immediately decided to re-read Chosen Thief and then Chosen Fool again. Yes, t was that good!
If Scarlett Dawn writes it, I will be reading it.
I received this ARC copy of Chosen Fool from Scarlett Dawn in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Feb. 5, 2016.
