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.
This book is absolutely fantastic and I enjoyed reading it! The Rogue King is a great start to a new series by Abigail Owen. It was non-stop action from beginning to end. I loved the characters, and the world building.
When Kasia can’t control her fire, which also allows her to see visions, she seeks help and winds up at a clinic where someone suspects what she is and rats her out. Kaisa is the eldest of four sisters, whose mother was the last known phoenix in the world. Or at least, she was until she surrendered her powers over to her daughters before promptly being murdered. So for the past few years Kaisa has been living in hiding, on the run from dragon forces that would use her as a political pawn. But when she powers being to flare out of control, she is exposed by people she seeks help from and finds herself caught by Brand.
Brand is a rogue, which means he doesn’t have a clan, since the brutal fall of his family. His only goal is revenge and for that he needs the support of a dragon clan, so he befriended King of the Blue Dragons, and if he could bring the blue King a phoenix then he’s in the clan. But things take a turn. I’m not going to spoil too much more but I just LOVED the dynamic between Kasia and Brand!
There was never a dull moment in this story and I am sooo looking forward to reading the next book, especially with the cliffhanger at the end! This is a must-read for paranormal romance fans. I highly recommend it!
