Today I am sharing my thoughts about The Rogue King by Abigail Owen plus there is an international giveaway that I’m sure you’ll want to check out.
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 is definitely what I would describe as a good fun read, something that doesn’t take itself too seriously but still has you totally caught up in all the action and drama.
I like to read these kinds of books, ones I like to call guilty pleasures, if I’ve been reading anything too heavy and this one came at the perfect time. I think what I liked about this one is that even though I’ve read about shifters before I’ve never read about dragon shifters or phoenix shifters for that matter so it was something a little different.
The plot was also really interesting, the different clans and where they are hidden, royal lineage and usurpers, there was a lot going on other than just a blossoming romance with an added bit of action. I liked that everyone had a separate goal and that they were working toward that even when they were joining forces with each other.
Kasia was great, smart and strong but also vulnerable because she can’t control her power yet. I really appreciated that even though she was being taken to the Blood King that she was certain of her choice that she was allowing it to happen and it wasn’t just a case of the poor damsel in distress this is your only option.
Brand was that perfect kind of intense and brooding, the one that you could daydream about all day, with the addition of being a rogue dragon and having a fair few secrets about his past, it made for some entertaining reading. The chemistry between Brand and Kasia was spot on but made even better by the complication of Ladon, the Blood King, because his devotion to what he is fighting for made Kasia pause and made me wonder how things were going to turn out.
I have to say that I am reeling over the ending, totally caught off guard with that and even though I’ll probably have to wait quite some time for the next book I really want to read it now!! I can just imagine the tension and fireworks already!
