Marvels and Misfits by Scarlett Dawn

Scarlett did it again! She gave me a book that I intended to read nice and slowly and I did the exact opposite. I read it in entirely one sitting and then sat there wallowing because it was over and I had to wait for the next one.

Guys. But really, Scarlett did it again. I swear I haven't laughed this much in a long time. I absolutely needed the laughs and the adventure and the love story. I swear there is one point in this book that I can't give details with it being a spoiler but I laughed so hard that I literally had my kids asking me if I was okay. THAT funny guys. Also though, this novel was absolutely an adventure that I still want to dive back into. Fantastical world building and a set of characters the leaves you wishing you had a story for each of them. I don't know what it is with Scarlett's books, but in each and every single one of them I grow ridiculously attached to the cast of characters. Literally I cannot explain the fact that I want a story for each and every single one of them. Please. All of the spinoff books. But back to this one. This is a whole new ballgame in the world of Dawn, and I am for it. I loved the new cast and the new world. This world is increasingly visual and legit you spend so much time enthralled with the world, you have to remind yourself that it is a fantasy.

Death this way comes to souls who break Fae law. So it is written. So carved in blood. Mighty are the Fae who watch us all. I’m screwed. Royally screwed. Of all the ways to mess up, I picked a real gem this time—of the hot shifter sort. Especiallybecause I’m the crowned elven princess. A forbidden soul mating with the cruel King Athon was not why I attended the royal summit of magical races. Our kinds do not mix, as is written in death-blood. And I’ll be damned before I let some arrogant alpha tell me what to do, and for once I’m nottalking about my father. Now, I’m on the quest of a lifetime. My crew of accomplices—sworn enemies. Including King Athon and my father. Our mission—retrieve ancient artifacts lost forever. Good luck there. And if we fail? No worries. The giants will crush the realm. Between all the secrets and lies, my name is Trixie Towers; and that’s the only truth that won’t get me dead.
