Character Interview ~ Ezra from King Hall by Scarlett Dawn

Today?  I get to talk to EZRA AGAIN! Hooray!!!

Jessica: “Hi, Ezra! Welcome to Stuck in Books! Our last interview over on Bookish was so fun, and I CANNOT tell you how completely excited I am to have you here and to get to chat with you again!”

Ezra: “Thanks.” He glances out the window. “So…”

Jessica: “Some of these questions are mine and some of them aren’t, but I like them all, so YAY! Are you ready for this?”

Ezra: His green eyes pierce, and he taps his fingers on the arm of his chair. “I’m bouncing in my seat with excitement.”

Jessica: “Oh, and I heart you. Just so you know.”

Ezra: His lips tremble ever so slightly. “Yes, I believe you said that once…or twice…before.” 

(I SO did! Find that here!)

Jessica: “Okay, okay. First question! How did you meet your first mate and how does your love for her compare to your love for Lily?”

Ezra: Instantly, his arch brows furrow. “I have no clue who the hell Lily is…and my deceased mate is not a topic of conversation I wish to have with you.”

Jessica: “Okay…let’s try to think back to when you first met Lily. What was going through your mind then?”

Ezra: “Are you daft?”

Jessica: “I’ve always been Team Ezra.”

Ezra: His words are slow, his gaze guarded. “That’s nice.”

Jessica: “Okay, so remember when you and Lily were in Antonio’s office-”

Ezra: “I.Don’t.Know.A.Lily.”

Jessica: “I think you are wonderful.”

Ezra: His perfect nostrils flare, and he snorts softly. “And I think you’re…special.”

Jessica: “What’s it like being a dad-”

Ezra: His fingers snap suddenly, and he appears like he has solved a puzzle. “Ah! Do you think I’m Elder Zeller – my father?”

Jessica: She shakes her head sadly. “And lastly, what can you tell the awesome people reading this about King Tomb? You can be as random or as cryptic as you like. It’s more fun that way, anyway.”

Ezra: A shrug of his shoulders. “I don’t know about King Tomb, but I run the best Mystical war camp called King Shadow. Perhaps…it all starts there?”

Jessica: “Now I have to say goodbye, but I hate this part! Can I hug you? I’d freaking LOVE to hug you.”

Ezra: “No.”

Jessica: “Thank you so much for stopping by today, Ezra, and I look forward to seeing you again. Hopefully sometime soon, yeah? I like to think of us as friends. And friends see each other on a somewhat regular basis, right? But anyway, THANK YOU!!”

Ezra: “Yeah, okay.” He points toward the closed door. “Do you want me to get my father now?”

Jessica: Again, she just shakes her head sadly. “It’ll all come back one day. I’m sure it will.”

King Hall (Forever Evermore, #1) by Scarlett Dawn

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.,%201

99¢ on Amazon! 

The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling, award-winning King Hall: the revolution is here, but the most dangerous attack may come from within...

The safe, comfortable world of Lily Ruckler and her fellow Mystical Kings and Queens is rocked to the core by the attacks at King Hall. Not only does Lily have to kill the Commoners attacking her people, she also has to assume the mantle of leadership, and bring the surviving Mysticals to King Cave.

It should have been too much, but she is not alone. Ezra becomes her rock, her best friend, the one person who understands. As Pearl and Jack struggle with inconsolable loss, Ezra and Lily work to keep the Mys community safe in their new home, and plan a deadly retaliation.

Their friendship saves them both...but it also draws attention. Whispers. Judgment. It's not normal for Shifters and Vampires to be friends, and when a horrifying truth is revealed, their relationship morphs from unusual to unspeakable. Lily is good at keeping secrets that could get her killed. Is she willing to risk Ezra's life as well?

From Scarlett Dawn comes the stunning, sexy, sensual, surprising, spell-binding conclusion to the best-selling first Forever Evermore trilogy.

Queen Shifter, Lily Ruckler, has found solace in brutal warfare. Her bloodied fists and bared fangs fill the holes left in her memory, the blank spaces that leave her soul aching and empty. Her only pleasure is in blood; her only salvation is the relationship she has with her infant child, the baby of unknown origins who brings her solace and stability.

When Elder Harcourt summons Lily and her protector Antonio back to the United States, Lily thinks nothing unusual about the change of location. But a standard reconnaissance mission leaves her trapped inside King Zeller’s private quarters, and at his mercy. Surprise attraction rapidly turns to a battle of wills and an intense power struggle that leaves no clear victor but plenty of resentment.

They are not allowed to nurse their wounds. In order to win the war against the Commoners, the King Vampire and Queen Shifter must work together. It should be easy. The war is turning, the battle is deadly, and both Lily and Ezra love the cold cleanliness of combat. But their chance meeting has led to more than an unlikely alliance. Secrets have a way of surfacing, especially on a torn-up battlefield, and Lily and Ezra are about to re-learn all they cannot remember. If they can’t control their emotions and responses, it will be to their own ruin and the destruction of everything around them.
