A fresh, meaty, sink-your-teeth-in-and-hold-on-tight new adult fantasy series kicks off with King Hall… King Hall — where the Mysticals go to learn their craft, get their degrees, and transition into adulthood. And where four new Rulers will rise and meet their destinies. Lily Ruckler is adept at one thing: survival. Born a Mystical hybrid, her mere existence is forbidden, but her nightmare is only about to start. Fluke, happenstance, and a deep personal loss finds Lily deeply entrenched with those who would destroy her simply for existing — The Mystical Kings. Being named future Queen of the Shifters shoves Lily into the spotlight, making her one of the most visible Mysticals in the world. But with risk comes a certain solace — her burgeoning friendships with the other three Prodigies: a wicked Vampire, a wild-child Mage, and a playboy Elemental. Backed by their faith and trust, Lily begins to relax into her new life. Then chaos erupts as the fragile peace between Commoners and Mysticals is broken, and suddenly Lily realises the greatest threat was never from within, and her fear takes on a new name: the revolution.
This story begins with us getting to know a little bit about Lily, her secrets, the love of her life, and what's currently going down in her new world. But when something horrible happens, Lily is forced to stand with new friends, and take several trials with them to get to where she is suppose to be. But there is a lot standing in the way, including tons of threats from unknown forces, and people who don't agree with her and her friends.
This book was very very good. It was a great start to this series. I really loved the bond those four shared, and I also loved how they stood up to everyone. This book was also sad at times. I couldn't believe I actually cried within the first 15 % of the book. That was how hooked I was, and how sad it was. I'm super excited to read more in this series. I really fell in love with the four main characters! I highly recommend this one!
