Review

Game Master was a quick fun read, full of action, emotion and of course, a bit of romance. Arizona, on the run from men trying to kill her, happens upon a skeleton key that leads into another world where frogs talk, magic is real, and Lucifer isn’t necessarily the devil. She’s stuck in this world, away from the earth she knows and loves, but when it comes down to it, will she even want to leave?
I enjoyed the novella, which is part of a bigger series of novellas The Skeleton Key, but for me, it did miss in a couple areas. To me, this one would have quite simply worked better as a full length novel. As always, I found myself transported to the world Ms. Dawn created, but all too soon, it was over and I was left wanting more. We caught a quick glimpse of the magic of the world, enough to really spark my interest but not enough that I felt like I knew the world. And I wanted to know it. There were a couple instances where something was mentioned, like a dangerous forest but we never got to find out more about it or the creatures inside. Similarly, I wanted to know more about both Arizona and Lucifer – about their pasts and their present.
That said, I did love the main characters in this story. They were unique in different while at the same time they reminded me of my favorite couple in Scarlett Dawn writing, Lily and Ezra. It made it impossible not to fall for these characters too. Arizona was confident and strong while remaining human and relatable. Lucifer was thoughtful and kind but with a bit of mystery and a lot of sex appeal. And Kingsley. There isn’t much more I can say about him aside from the fact that I very much loved our resident talking frog.

Synopsis

Hidden in the Red Hill Mountains is the quiet town of Hollows Grove.

In that town, there is a field where a secret is buried deep beneath the ground.

And in that field is where Mila was found abandoned with no memory of her past and haunted by visions of the future.

Nine years later, Mila’s life is almost as normal as any other eighteen-year-old. That is until she starts foreseeing the murder of Nyjah Bradley, a guy she’s never met before, but whose face is branded into her mind.

Constantly plagued by the vision, Mila decides to track Nyjah down and warn him of his impending death. But when the search leads her back to Hollows Grove, she learns there’s more to the sleepy town than meets the eye.

Excerpt

Goosebumps dot my arms as I become highly aware that there’s not a single drop of noise within earshot. Not even our shoes hitting the dirt make a sound. I want to ask Novela if she notices it, but I don’t want to risk upsetting her more than she is. I try to keep it to myself but then I hear the soft pitter-patter of light footsteps rushing up behind us.

Do you hear us? Do you hear us?

Welcome back. Welcome back.

We’ve been waiting for you, Mila.

Our gazes lock and without looking back, Novela and I take off in a mad sprint down the road

“Oh my God, we’re going to die,” she pants as she struggles desperately to keep up with me.

“We’re not going to die.” I gasp for air as I push my legs harder than I ever have before.

I don’t know what’s behind us. If it’s following us. What it wants. But as we near the edge of town, I dare look back over my shoulder and instantly wish I wouldn’t have. Because standing in the darkness of the road, watching us from a distance, is a lofty figure.

Fall

savagely wicked new adult sci-fi series blasts off with Fall, the first novella in The Cold Mark Saga…

Only one thousand Humans survived The Travel from the shattered Earth. Some Humans say it was their penance for crushing such beauty. Eighteen-year-old Braita merely thought it was pathetic – pathetic that her people had been that blind.

Now, the Humans live in the solar system, Kline, where three planets are habitable. Joyal, the smallest planet, is embraced by the Humans – their family to love as they had never loved Earth. Though a planet covered mainly in water is dangerous real estate to dwell upon.

Their worry turns into devastating reality when Braita’s blessed village is struck by a tsunami. Population numbers must be kept to a minimum. Drastic measures must be taken. Braita’s life is twisted in brutality when she is chosen as one of the three hundred Humans to be removed from Joyal…and sent to the Mian, the aliens to fear, on the planet Triaz.

Thrown head first into a barbaric world she knows nothing of, Braita must adapt to a dark life as a slave of the Mian society. Her existence depends on it…and possibly, the fall of her heart.

When I received my ARC of this novella, I was thrilled to say the least. After capturing my very soul in her Forever Evermore series, I’m down to read any and everything by Scarlett Dawn.
Even so, when I picked this copy up I couldn’t help but think with a frown that Ezra won’t be in it. Well, I thought that for about 2 seconds into the book at which point I thought Erza who?
Holy cheese and crackers Batman, this novella is Ah! Maze! Ing!
Scarlett Dawn creates a beautiful new world- new solar system- that pulls you in from the very first sentence and makes the story impossible to put down! (For real though, when I finished I was on such a book high- at 3 am- that I could not sleep)
Joyal is a beautiful world that is destroyed by it’s own elements, so when the human government begins evacuating a select number of people to the neighboring planets, Briata (awesome name btw) is sent to live with the Main- a terrifying, totally badass group of aliens.
Let me tell you, the from the moments before the Tsunami to the end of the novella my heart was racing and my stomach full of butterflies. Scarlett Dawn did such an amazing job of pulling me into this universe that I was on the edge of my seat, filled with nerves for Briata.
Ok, so I really loved Briata- Scarlett Dawn has a habit of creating kick ass, yet still relatable heroines that you can’t help but root for. I love the language barrier she presents and that the character is so obviously not perfect- hence calling the scary group of Aliens cows by mistake.
Jax is a really great character. I hope we get to see a lot more of him, because the friendship between him and Briata is perfect. They are a team.
Malik and Leo. So, typically I’m not into the extremely violent type, but something about these two is just so endearing. (I think Malik might be my favorite… is that ok? Am I allowed to love one just a little bit more?) The deal with these two is that though they are part of a violent and ruthless race that thrives on war, they can also be so gentle and caring and even a bit humorous.
My single complaint? That the next part of the saga isn’t out yet! Seriously the ending will blow you away and leave you begging for more that sadly is not yet available. I mean, wow. This novella was seriously, seriously good. Seriously. Did I get across how serious I am about loving this new story? Good! Because I do.

Ok, so now you’ve made the decision that you NEED to read this, because honestly, you do.
LET’S ALL SHOW HOW EXCITED WE ARE THAT SCARLETT DAWN RELEASED THIS EARLY AND GO BUY A COPY NOW! IT’S ONLY $0.99 RIGHT NOW! AWESOME!
