Kasia Amon is a master at hiding. Who—and what—she is makes her a mark for the entire supernatural world. Especially dragon shifters. To them, she’s treasure to be taken and claimed. A golden ticket to their highest throne. But she can’t stop bursting into flames, and there’s a sexy dragon shifter in town hunting for her…
As a rogue dragon, Brand Astarot has spent his life in the dark, shunned by his own kind, concealing his true identity. Only his dangerous reputation ensures his survival. Delivering a phoenix to the feared Blood King will bring him one step closer to the revenge he’s waited centuries to take. No way is he letting the feisty beauty get away.
But when Kasia sparks a white-hot need in him that’s impossible to ignore, Brand begins to form a new plan: claim her for himself…and take back his birthright.
Totally. Smoking. Hot. Abigail Owen has started a new spin-off series with The Rogue King. And it is totally awesome! In the serie Fire’s Edge, we had already seen that the world contains shapeshifting dragons, wolf shifters and now we meet a Phoenix. Kasia is a woman who combusts, literally, at times. And the worse part: she can’t seem to control it and it hurts like hell. Which is a problem, because she has been hiding her whole life from shapeshifting dragons. Because they want to mate a Phoenix, to become the Dragon King and rule the world. Ever since they killed her mother, she and her sisters have gone into hiding.
But now she has Brand Astarot on her tail. A very hot Brand if I may say. And funny thing: “Brand” is the Dutch word for “Fire”. Well… he’s on fire indeed. He has been assigned by the Blood King to find the Phoenix and bring her to his king. As an outcast, this can be Brand’s ticket into a new clan and to finally have a family again, since his family was brutally murdered. He didn’t count on the feisty Kasia, however. Who hijacks his car and runs off.
But then the strangest thing happens: when Kasia is starting to combust, Brand can feel her pain and he can absorb her flames, easing her pains. So, now Brand has a dilemma: should he deliver Kasia to the king or claim her as his own? And maybe an even better question: what does Kasia want? Smoking hot, funny and suspense. Can’t wait for the rest of the series! Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
