BLOG TOUR/BOOK REVIEW: "Fall (The Cold Mark Saga #1)" by Scarlett Dawn
A savagely wicked new adult sci-fi series blasts off with , 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.
In Fall, the first book in Scarlett Dawn's Cold Mark Saga, we see what the universe is like 300 years from now, after Earth is gone and the remaining Humans have taken refuge on a plane they adopted called Joyal.
Eighteen year old Braita lives peacefully with her friends, especially her best friend, Jax. But when a catastrophic tsunami hits, they must evacuate their adopted planet and are sent to one of the other two habitable planets nearby.
Both teens are sent to the violent Mian planet called Triaz, and that's when things go from bad to much worse.
This is the third piece of work I've read from Ms. Dawn, and I do believe it's my favorite.
It's a sci-fi story with a unique plot (for the most part) and even a slight LGBT twist. The plot is a bit unsettling, because I can tell that we could be there in a few centuries!
I liked Briata, the female protagonist, who is spunky and takes care of herself even when put into unimaginable situations. I think readers will adore her.
I read this book in about three hours, and I will reread it again. One thing I can say is that I'm going to be waiting for the continuation!
