Start your review of Fire King (The Crystal Kingdom #4)
I get why this book exists. It's the transition book to introduce a new trilogy, a spin-off called "Crystal Kingdom, New Worlds". These books will be starring Avery and Chelsea's cousins.

I just feel like Chelsea, the heroine of this book, popped up seemingly out of nowhere. Was she even mentioned in Avery's story? I honestly don't remember.

Frankly, I could've skipped this book because the storyline, imo, feels so forced.

Just when i thought the final story was told this author came back with an incredible story that was unexpected and definitely left you wanting even more.. Zaos is definitely my favorite King because of his insecurities and vulnerability.. Chelsea was kick ass and is definitely a perfect addition to the queens.. Looking forward to see what this author has planned next..

This is Zaos and Chelsea's story . Chelsea is not feeling the love right now after being rejected she heads to visit with sister and tries to find out more about herself . Zaos is so fed up with things and wishes he could just tell his leader what is needed to be done but instead does as he is told and heads to learn what he can and to kill the light elf . Every thing can change on a dime and let me tell you it does ! I adore books that have your emotions pulled and this one will do it ! We have ...more

This is a cute paranormal story, but it was just a bit too far-fetched for me (even for a fantasy!). It was an entertaining read, though, and I liked that it featured elves and dragons, instead of just the usual aliens or shifters. It gets 3.5 stars from me, rounded down to 3 stars.

The thing that I found the most unbelievable was everyone on the alien world where Chelsea went spoke English. No mention was made of them having universal translators or anything like that, but she was able to talk

Falling off

This one took me a while to get through. I usually finish Milly Taiden's books within a couple of hours if I have a clear schedule. But this book seemed out of place and like a scramble/push to continue a series that could have ended at book three. There were jumps in knowledge that hadn't been addressed in previous books, which left holes in the storyline because they weren't effectively explained. When I say holes, I mean things from Chelsea's awareness of her mixed race heritage to

Fire King is the fourth book in the Crystal Kingdom series. In this book we're introduced to Avery's step sister Chelsea & dark elf Zaos & follow them on their path to happily ever after.

Chelsea is a runner. She runs to clear her head & get away the pain of rejection. When her grandmother offers her a chance to go see her sister, she jumps at the chance. When she decides to go for a short run, she ends up much farther from her sister, way too close to danger & smack into an elf

This was a nice addition to the Crystal Kingdom series. Chelsea loves to run, it's her escape. When she visits her sister in another realm, she discovers running in a new realm might have some interesting surprises. Zaos is a dark elf, second only to the king. His people are dying and under constant threat, but his world is about to get more complicated when he meets the woman he's been waiting over a century

Chelsea & Zaos

Chelsea missed her sister. The one who is now a Queen in another world. Her magic grandmother has the same idea and sends her along with her three cousins for a visit as a birthday surprise for the new queen. The visit turns into a dangerous adventure--meeting a super hottie who says she's his mate is one of the benefits. Maybe.

Secrets. Old feuds. Misunderstandings. Curses. All combined make for people who suffer life-threatening situations. As a mediator in her other life can

Chelsea was happy for her half-sister. Really she was. She was now a Queen for fracks sake! In another Realm! That's what she was getting used to! But on a visit to Avery and Tylen, Chelsea manages to get caught up in a turf war between Dragons and Dark Elves! She never thought her work as a Divorce Mediator would be used this way!

Zaos has all sorts of delicious secrets. He comes from an actual love union and...well he has more than a few talents. And just why does he sound more "Earthling" than
This is Book 4 in the Crystal Kingdom series. Chelseas sister is a Queen in another world. Her grandmother sends her and 3 cousins for a visit. Things are way different there than they are on earth!

There she gets in trouble trying to take a lost little boy home. Trouble isnt too bad though because she does meet Zaos there. This is such a ...more

Loved it! I love to read books from Milly Taiden. This is the fourth book in The Crystal Kingdom series. This is Chelsea and Zaos's story. Chelsea is just coming out of a breakup. So she decides that she needs to visit her sister in the fae world. Zaos is a dark elf who isn't what he appears to be. This story has it all from passion, and heat, a bit of scary and magic!! I loved Zaos and Chelsea. I could not put it down at all. You NEED to grab this story. It's an amazing journey in this series. ...more

Zaos is definitely one of my favorites. Having a secrect about his past that he feels no one will understand he carries around the burden on his sleeve. But he is a kind a gentle soul with some serious power behind it. Chelsea is a mystery all within herself that will have you rooting for her from day 1. Everyone loves a strong willed woman and Chelsea is definitely 1 from her run with Tel you will love her character. This story is a good read with all kinds of twist and turns love it.

This is part 4 of a series and while it can be read alone it is so much better as the group of books. I have to say this book surprised me in all the good ways. Chelsea leaves earth to go visit her sister and her new mate one of the Elf Kings. While there she goes for a run and fate steps in. I knew I would like her tale and I did so much. I love how the author gives us something to think about as far as our world goes. This is a must read and i am looking forward to reading more of this series. ...more

Chelsea visits her sister Avery in the Crystal Kingdom and discovers her own magical connection.
Her magic manifests in her ability to run at lightspeed.
And it leads her to her mate Zaos.
It also leads her into trouble, right into a feud between the dark elves and the dragons.
Chelsea uses her work experience as a mediator to defuse the feud and bring the two groups together.
Chelsea also helps Zaos uncover more information on his parentage.

Quite amusing and enjoyable.
Found the heroine Chelsea believable and likeable. Zaos was just yummy.
These two being mates really will bring balance between the light and dark elves and I loved how Chelsea sorted out the dark lands.
This was better than I expected. I read book one and didnt find it to be what I wanted to read. Having read book 4, I may just have to go back and read the intervening two books.
This is my honest review of this book kindly offered to me.

Enjoyable and entertaining read and a great addition to the series. I loved the nonsense heroine and the alpha males who loved them in spite of their strange human slang it made for a very interesting read. Add-in action, suspense, and of course steamy romance and you have a helluva read. I received a free copy via booksprout I voluntarily read and review this ARC no monetary compensation was received and the opinions I have expressed are my own.

Way, way too nice

Zaos let Tel get away with a whole lot concerning his mate, even the unthinkable. (no spoilers here unfortunately). Although I liked the story, not loved, I have to leave something to the imagination and I have to say Zaos isn't much of a hero in my book, but this story has it's funny moments, so that makes up for the lack of heroes in this read.

This is book four in The Crystal Kingdom series. It features human, Chelsea and dark fae, Zaos. I've enjoyed the other books in the series, but I think this one might be my favorite (even with a couple of confusing parts).

I liked the Fire King. Chelsea is visiting her sister, the Queen of the Light Elves when she suddenly finds herself captive of the Dark Elves. Luckily her mate, Zaos finds her quickly.

Some danger to Chelsea from another dark elf who is jealous of Zaos but she is saved and she also manages to help bring the dark elves and dragons together.
