This is the first book I've read from this author and it definitely won't be my last. It was absolutely fantastic!!! This paranormal story was non-stop action from beginning to end. I loved the characters, the storyline and the authors writing style. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. The female characters in this story, especially Kasia were not weak in any way. I love that they say what they want and mean what they say. They hold their own against all of the male characters an ...more

THE ROGUE KING is a thrilling new spin-off series perfect for fans of Donna Grant and Sherrilyn Kenyon. As a fan of Owen’s dragon shifters, FIRE’S EDGE series, I was excited to pick up this new book- and dare I say, it is even better than FIRE’S EDGE, which I also love. This new series combines the dragon shifters with other paranormal creatures and expands this delightful fantasy world.

In this book, Kasia is a phoenix who has long been hiding for hundreds of years with her mother and sisters. S
I loved Kasia! She was spirited, resourceful, and full of surprises! She made no bones about having an opinion and when facing a roomful of dragon shifters, that’s saying something! She also had the coolest creature for a pet, even if he left a smoky smell behind. And then there’s Brand. He was awesome! A rogue dragon shifter with a mercenary status and hidden secrets, even other shifters don’t really mess with him. He also underestimated Kasia once, but it was enough for him to figure out he’s ...more

Kasia isn't your typical woman. In fact, she's extremely rare and considered a valued object. Yes, you heard that right, object. Being a phoenix, she has the power that would give any dragon shifter the

The Rogue King is a great start to a new series by Abigail Owen. Right from the prologue, the story pulls you in. You are already a witness to what a mother will do to protect their young. This is Kasia’s story.

Kasia and her three younger sisters were separated for their protection and each have been in hiding for the past year. Kasia had to come out of hiding when uncontrollable events starts to happen to her. Unfortunately, her possible lineage may have been outed and the first to find her is
She was spirited, resourceful, and full of surprises! I loved Kasia. She knew exactly who and what she was, she knew of the “other world” (shifters and magic) she also knew the dangers, (her mother had been killed at an early age, and had instilled the need to be wary and cautious) her mother had sent her daughters away from each other with the aid of magic, she was being hunted by a dragon king who had heard of the legend “he who mates a Phoenix will rule all the dragon houses” and he wanted Ka ...more

Delivering her to the Blood King will earn him a place in the clan and move him one step closer to giving him his chance at retribution.

This is the first book that i have read by this author and i can say without a doubt i will be reading more of her work, and will definitely be looking at reading the rest of this series. This book was awesome.

The book starts with a Prologue a year prior letting us know how Kasia's life changed and is from the point of view of her mother Serafina and the race to get to her daughters and depart her powers to them.

Abigail Owen Is very talented at creating unique worlds and intriguing characters. This story follows alongside her Fires Edge series. The characters are intriguing and have compelling backstories.

I liked the idea of a phoenix being crucial to the High King. It made for intrigue and gave a different spin to dragon shifter lore.
Kasia is one of 4 sisters born to the last phoenix. Never before have there been 4 daughters born and I wonder where Ms Owen plans to take the story with that nugget. Kas

Kasia Amon is a very rare Phoenix. She has lived all her life hiding from others who would enslave her and use her just because of the legends about her kind. Unfortunately she has had to seek help for the side effects of her recent visions.

I randomly chose this book based on the cover and I’m glad I did. I loved this mix of many fantasy characters with the real world, then the world building of hidden dragon kingdoms. It was fun to read and with the slow romance and battles, I was turning the pages as fast as I could.

Kasia is the kind of female I like seeing in stories. She doesn’t just sit back to be saved, she learns to fight and use her powers. She isn’t oblivious of the danger around her and wants to

Nice Paranormal romance between a dragon and a phoenix. As the war continues between the colorful dragons their only hope for peace is to find and mate with this extinct being. Rogue dragon, Brand Astarot, has a mission to locate this bird and bring her back to the Blue Dragon. Only problem is when Kasia Amon is found many will fight to the death to claim her. Enjoyable new series that presented many interesting characters that will probably grace coming narratives. A copy of this book was provi ...more

Just fantastic!. I love the world building. I love the journey the author is taking us on. I love the strong heroine Kasia. Great humor and banter throughout. Wonderful secondary characters to keep your interest. Loved the tie in with Fallon and the Dragons in the 'colonies".

I feel a bit deprived having to wait for the next book, but I am anxious to read more in this series.

This was so AWESOME!!! I’m sure exactly what I was expecting but this was so much more! Nothing new in the evolution of these characters, but the dynamics and the flow of the story was fast paced at times and smooth at others . I enjoyed every page, the build up and discoveries along the way were exciting to read. I’m looking forward to the next story in this addicting new series.

What a great book! I loved how the author kept me guessing. With a Phoenix, Dragons and a variety of other sups this was a riveting read.
I love a dragon shifter book and have read others by this author. This is a different book as it features dragons and a Phoenix <3

Brand is a rogue dragon, his on a mission for a dragon king. I really liked him, he tries to keep his distance from the lady his escorting but there is something about her.

Kasia, she lost her mum and was split from her sisters for her own protection, all because she is a rare breed of preternatural. She is no shrinking violet and is a perfect match for the sometime

Brand a dragon king with no clan, a rogue for hire. Kasia is a Phoenix in hiding, and constantly goes up in flames as she has visions.

It all started in a paranormal psychiatric hospital. She thought she’d be safe and get some help, but she was unaware of the betrayal that had taken place. When a dragon shows up to check her out to verify what she is, she’s finds he’s the man from her visions. Kasia decides it’s time to leave quickly and quietly. And that’s the beginn

I really enjoyed reading 'The Rogue King' so much so that I finished it in one sitting! Kasia is witty, strong and independent and both main characters, Kasia and Brand, were really likeable and had amazing chemistry together. The background plot was very interesting and I'm excited to see where this rest of this series goes. I can't wait for the next book!

This was my 3rd read of Abigail Owen. It takes place in the same world as her other dragon stories like The Boss and The Rookie. I've enjoyed reading about this world and the different dynamics and politics coming into play.

There's lots of action, dragon shifting, and other various supernatural elements. I liked Brand and Kasia even though I didn't feel like this story had as much relationship development as some of her other stories. There is
