Ruthless dragon king Ladon Ormarr must keep his throne--and his people--safe from the cruel High King at all costs. With war on the horizon, he'll need a miracle to protect his clan. Luckily, the fates have dropped the irresistible Skylar Amon right into his lap. Or so he thought. Because the last thing this phoenix wants ishim. A phoenix mate is the ticket to securing his throne, but this fiery Amon sister detests Ladon, doesn't stick to protocols, and regularly offends his warriors and advisers. Skylar also has no intention of sticking around, nor does she believe in the whole destined-mates thing. But if it means taking out the High King who murdered her parents, she'll put up with the too-sexy-for-her-sanity Ladon...temporarily. Their mating bond may make them want to tear off their clothes, but outside the bedroom...well, Ladon is positive the fates hate him. Just as he starts to win over the mercurial phoenix, everything goes to hell when the High King makes his final move. And Ladon will burn down the world to keep the mate he is unwilling to live without. Each book in the Inferno Rising series is STANDALONE: * The Rogue King * The Blood King… (more)

‘The Blood King’ was the perfect follow-up to ‘The Rogue King’ in the Inferno Rising series. It follows the journey of Skylar, one of the quadruplets (all sisters) whose mother was known as the last known phoenix in the world before her death, coming to the aid of Kaisa who she believed was forced to mate Brand. During the course of the not-so-happy reunion, she meets the Blood King, Landon, and then woo-wee! It starts to get muy caliente!

The oozing sexual tension, the back and forth banter, and the storyline captivated me from the get-go. On top of that, my love for this fantasy novel only grew when the readers were introduced to Skylar. She was a badass in every single way and it was impossible not to love this strong, sassy heroine who took shit from no one including her destined mate.

Now the only downside to this is the fact that readers will have to wait another year to read the next phoenix Meira and Samael, Captain of the Guard of King of the Black Clan, story. It’s going to be a long time coming but I am sure it'll be worth the wait.

The Blood King by Abigail Owen

2nd book in the Inferno Rising series. Fantasy dragon shifter romantic suspense. Should be read in series order.

A lot of pieces. A complex layering of strategies. Gamesmanship. Chess is used as a layering piece by the author and characters to strategize.
Unfortunately it’s winning at a level where treachery is high and power is the ultimate gamble.
Red, Gold, Blue, Green, Black and White dragon clans fight for domination hoping one of the Phoenix sisters will be able to create a higher power.
Skylar and Ladon are the main Phoenix and dragon to mate and fall in love in the book in the series. The couple from the previous book play key roles and we finally get to meet the other two sisters.
A cliffhanger for the series but these two lovers are mates and set as King and Queen of their dragon clan.

Engrossing and complex power struggles. Romantic potential sacrifices that remain unneeded. The evil dragon remains ....until the next book and match.

I received a copy of this from NetGalley. ( )
