Overview

The second saga in the bestselling, groundbreaking Forever Evermore series begins with Chosen Thief, where the life of a skilled lawbreaker becomes much more than she ever wanted...

Caroline Jules knows death is imminent. She’s only 22, but as an inmate of Death Row in the most secure Mystical jail, what else could her future hold?

Caro has no idea. Her solitary, transient life is about to get flipped on its head when it is revealed that she is the new Prodigy Elemental, and she has responsibilities and ties that she can’t ever escape. Caro is attempting to run from a brutal past, but the Rulers have other plans for this thief’s future.

But the transition from a self-contained existence to life with the other Prodigies, the Kings and Queens, and even the Elders was never going to be easy, and Caro has secrets she’s loath to share. Suddenly she has friends, mentors, lovers — and they all want to know more about her than she is willing to reveal.

Will Caro ever escape the darkness of all she is, or will she fall deeper into the life that has been chosen for her?

Chosen Thief is the fourth installment in Scarlett Dawn's new adult fantasy/romance series titled Forever Evermore. For those unfamiliar with the series, here's a heads up: The first three books make up the first saga and focus on four main characters: Jack, Pearl, Lily, and Ezra as they train and serve as leaders in this world. This fourth book: Chosen Thief begins the second saga, where the next four prodigies enter training/leadership roles. Although Jack, Pearl, Lily, and Ezra are still active characters, they are no longer the focus. The main characters will be brand spanking new to readers. Let me introduce you: Caro: Elemental Prodigy London: Mage Prodigy Brann: Shifter Prodigy Aria: Vampire Prodigy OK, moving on... I loved the first three books and when I found out the focal characters were new in the fourth book, I was somewhat hesitant. I adore Ms. Dawn's storytelling, so I knew it would be good but I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it quite as much. Well, I had nothing to worry about. I enjoyed it just as much and now I am in love. To say I am incredibly excited about this saga is an understatement! Chosen Thief is told in the perspective of Caro, a rare spirit elemental and Jack's prodigy...and boy does he have his hands full! Caro and her “brother”: Sin show that people can change. No matter where life has taken you in the past, fresh starts can be successful. I know it's a bit early to talk about success but I have a good feeling! Caro's character building is spot on and the world building continues beautifully. I'm so looking forward to learning more about all the characters, especially the new prodigies. Some of them were minimally touched on, but we've got a whole saga's worth of time to get to know them. My only complaint (well not really a complaint, more like a confusion) revolves around (view spoiler) I can honestly say I loved this book, and in my opinion it's 5-star entertainment. Ms. Dawn knows how to draw her readers into any world she creates and I just eat it up every time. If you haven't tried out her writing yet, start with this series. But beware: If you read it, I guarantee you'll be hooked...just like me! My favorite quote: ”It's always the hardasses who have the biggest hearts.”

The Forever Evermore gang is BACK in action!! YESSS!!! Once again I am in awe of this author & the magic she weaves! I LOVE love LOVE this fabulous world Scarlett Dawn has created for us, & I am psyched that the Forever Evermore gang is back bringing us even more awesome! I was so pleased to jump right back into this story after that cliff hanger in King Tomb! It took me a few moments to get my bearings & see where we were on the timeline, but that just added to the fun. The new characters are eccentric & totally growing on me. I look forward to getting to know some of them better. We start out getting a glimpse at Isa all grown up & are immediately thrust into the crazy action packed life of Caro, the Prodigy Elemental who happens to be an inmate of Death Row in the most secure Mystical jail. This chick is not playing around & quickly proves that! Shortly after we are meeting up with some other players who intrigue me: Sin, Brann, & The One (these guys are definitely not for the faint of heart) as well as the newest prodigies. Their journey is sure to be exciting as they are now forced to pay attention & learn from the Kings & Queens we have come to love as well as the Elders who arrive to assist before everything is said & done. I was not expecting to meet a whole new faction either! I foresee great things to come! Boy oh boy, Caro & the other prodigies have no idea what they've been signed up for. I truly can not wait to get my hands on the next installment! **If you have not yet begun this series I highly suggest you begin with King Hall, followed up by King Cave & King Tomb. Reinforcing the importance of the past will ensure you enjoy this adventure for everything it has to give. There is so much back story & character build up that adds to this world, skipping it would leave you with so many more unanswered questions.

Isn't Caro's picture from the cover badass? The first few pages I was shocked about but I felt bad for Caro's lover since she had to left that person in order to save another someone from her life. It skipped a time frame wherein Caro's in jail and sentenced to death. But thanks to help of her friend she managed to escape her faith, the only problem was that Queens and Kings were after her. To her dismay, she finds out that she's the next Elemental Queen (I seriously kind of felt bad for the previous prodigy.) As much as she doesn't like to be Queen, the current rulers made a deal with her which would benefit both of them. I liked the current prodigies. They each have their own unique traits that just makes them click together. Caro has too many lovers and if you count the past coming back to the present. Although I think know whom she's gonna end up with. I really kind of thought, probably the shifter prodigy but that's wishful thinking on my part. Caro is kind of a complex character. She's powerful enough at the same time kind of still a bit childish. I understand her decisions but it also hurts people along the way. I liked Sin as well, and I too have hard time understanding her actual relationship with him. It keeps you guessing. I loved the humorous parts that involves him. I'm more curious to find out if he'll have a mate and who it's going to be. I can't believe those people are finally showing up. Learning also a bit of their power was shocking. I won't spoil that part. We can't leave the current Kings and Queens. OMG, I was like fangirling about Jack. I loved him from the first trilogy but I loved him even more. I really like to spoil that part but I'll keep the mystery about his life. I can't wait for the next book. The author always makes it more interesting when it's the end. I can't wait to know more about the secrets especially about Richard. Received an arc from author via netgalley.

*Spoiler free except one paragraph that is properly warned with "[SPOILER PARAGRAPH]" and "[END OF SPOILER PARAGRAPH]", after which the review continues as normal.* First, let me just tell you how awesome it felt to be in this world again. It happened the instant I cracked open the book, and seeing old friends from a different perspective was fascinating. My mind is now in scrambles. This book doesn’t even try to mindf*ck you, but my mind is so stuck in that universe I can’t even begin to think of picking up another book. Since I can’t actually go a day without reading I think that means I’ll be re-reading it. Chosen Thief mainly takes place in 2035, so the kings and queens have ruled for two decades, and their prodigies are getting groomed to take over the throne. Caro’s life goes from running, hiding and stealing to a completely different lifestyle when she finds out she is the new prodigy elemental. Caro isn’t just any elemental, though. She’s a spirit elemental. And a very intriguing part of this book is figuring out what exactly that means (and Jack is just as intrigued as we are). What can she do? How does it work? How is she different? And who is this mysterious silver eyed Egyptian god? I may have gotten hung up on that last one longer than necessary and searched the other books before continuing the story. I’ll give you a hint: we haven’t met him before. Another intriguing element is the dynamic between the characters. Other than Caro, we are introduced to three very interesting prodigies (I won’t spoil that for you because it was truly a hysterical introduction, and my eyes were kind of crossing by the end of it) and we get to see the four monarchs as experienced rulers. The most intriguing dynamic in the bunch, however, is Caro and Sin’s relationship. I loved it. Just wait and see, you will too. They’re truly a puzzle, and it just gets better and better the more we get to know them. The first half or so of this book gave me a very similar feeling as King Cave gave me, but also King Hall – especially in regards to the amount romance. That’s not to say that Caro doesn’t have a love interest, though. She has several. But none of them ever really get too serious. There is one sex scene, but to me that happens a little too quickly after we are introduced to the character that I had a little trouble feeling their connection. However, I very much felt it after. But Sin is still very much like a wildcard in the middle of everything. … One thing that I think make rating this book a little difficult is the fact that it’s a part of a series, but it is like a continuation and new start at the same time. This story will continue (soon, I hope!!), evolve and pick up things that weren’t solved in this book (I have so many questions!). But if I am to judge this book as it stands now, I have one thing I need to pick on. I’ve left in under a tag since it contains mild spoilers. [SPOILER PARAGRAPH] The first love interest we are introduced to gets a nice build up with attraction, flirting and all that – and then it gets dropped “just like that”. And with those two I was actually feeling a greater connection earlier on than I did with love interest number two. I get the why of the situation – the reason behind it is explained thoroughly (which was an absolutely hilarious scene, btw! A very Lily-and-Ezra-gets-caught-in-the-car-by-Venclaire-and-Kincaid kind of deal – which made it ten times better considering who was in the scene). But it still felt very odd to have a build up like that and then just drop it, and then we hardly see the character for the rest of the book because they are “staying apart from each other for a little while.” It also made me feel pulled in several different directions when the second love interest came into the picture. [END OF SPOILER PARAGRAPH] And of course, let’s not forget about Sin. He complicates things even more. Now that complication is far from a negative thing! Sin was actually my favorite character in the book, and I honestly loved his connection with Caro over everything in this book. Even if it was confusing as hell. One thing I missed from the previous books was the deep connection with the other prodigies. Caro had that connection with Sin (it was kind of like them against the rest of the world), but never really got extremely close to her fellow prodigies. I hope that’s something that will change in the books to come. We do have three books to go in her story after all! … There were so many great moments in this book – humorous, clever, thrilling, heartwarming, surprising… All together they made an addictive and sensational story. You can really feel that even though we’re in a different characters POV we’re still very much in the Forever Evermore world. We get more of the Vizoacs, more king- and queen grooming, more magic, more of everything that makes me love this world so much. Most of all, more of Scarlett Dawn’s epically consuming writing. I never put it down – not one single time until I was done with the very last page. It’s been months since I read an equally intense book. Chosen Thief is a great addition to the Forever Evermore series, and I’m extremely excited to continue the story! I hope we won’t have to wait too long.
