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.
Abigail Owen is a fairly new author to me and I just fell in love with her work when I read Fire’s Edge series. I was completely hungry for more when it comes to her dragon-shifter series, so I was more than excited when she was giving us a spin-off. First up is Brand and Kasia, and these two are absolute fire, together!
I completely devoured The Rogue King, I wasn’t exactly sure how the story was going to go, but it was quite the ride from beginning to end. All while, the steamy connection that these two have will have you shipping these two so hard.
I loved that they both had different goals when it came to what they were heading towards. There was an instant connection between them and we can all sum the guesses what that exactly meant. And deep down, you know that they know it as well, but you’ll be wondering long it’ll take them to fully recognize it. A lot longer than I expected.
The one thing that I’ve noticed when it comes to books I’ve read by Abigail is that they’re getting better every single time. I love the world that she created for us and she does a phenomenal job covering everything without saying way too much. I wasn’t overwhelmed with the many clans and characters mentioned at all.
There’s a lot of barriers that Kasia and Brand have to get through and it makes for an action-packed ride. With every chapter you get through, secrets are revealed and the bigger picture becomes more than we’ve ever imagined.
I absolutely enjoyed every aspect of this story and you won’t be able to help, but just fall in love with Kasia and Brand. Between their banter and fiery attraction between them, it’s just one of things that will carry you through to the end.
It looks like we’ll have 3 books added to this series and I won’t reveal much except that I’m unbelievably excited for the next one! It’ll be FANNNNNTASTICCC!
