Review of The Warrior King (Inferno Rising #3) by Abigail Owen

“I’m well aware of my fuckedness.”


Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance (Dragons), Suspense

Length: 305 Pages

POV: Third Person


Meira Amon is the most reserved of the phoenixes, finding computers easier to deal with than people and their messy emotions. But she wants revenge against the Rotting King Pytheios for the murder of her parents just as much as her sisters. Offering herself as a queen for their ally, dragon shifter King Gorgon of the Black Clan, only makes sense.

Just one problem…

Samael Veles worked his lowborn ass off to become the fiercest warrior of the Black Clan. He has pledged his life to protect his king at all costs. Yet somehow, in the middle of war, he took one look at a woman in a reflection and gave up his heart. When that woman turns out to be the phoenix promised to mate his king and help bring peace to their kind, he has no choice but to accept it.

Until her fire unexpectedly destroys the king after they’ve wed. Now Samael must choose between his loyalty to his clan and protecting the queen who might be his mate from his people’s wrath, one of which will unlock a destiny no one could have ever imagined…

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Abigail Owen has me completely entranced with her world of Dragon Shifters. The Warrior King is more proof to that fact. It is emotional, suspenseful, and filled with a conflict between sworn duty and desire that will have you loving and hating it at the same time.

“Fight for your people, fight for your king. But I need you to fight for me, too. For us.”

Meira is the third phoenix to find her mate. After seeing her two other sisters mated to dragon kings she intended to do the same in order to get justice for her parents. What she didn’t expect was being drawn not to the king she’d pledged herself to, but to his Viceroy of War. She couldn’t go back on a promise she’d made, but lucky for her their mating ceremony didn’t go to plan.

Samuel had undying loyalty to his king, even at the cost of his own sanity. Every day around Meira drove his dragon insane with longing, but he refused to give into temptation. When he was placed with her safety it made it more difficult to ignore, and yet he still managed…barely. However, the moment he found out he was next in line to be king both Samuel and Meira gave into what they both wanted. Each other.

“Gives a whole new meaning to ‘release the kraken,’ don’t you think?” ~I completely laughed out loud at this part of the book!

Their decision turned out to be premature, which caused an entire set of other problems. There is a fine line between loyalty and betrayal in this book. It all comes down to perspective. In the end, everything works out as fate intended between Meira and Samuel. That being said…the war between all clans has officially started and Pytheios is using every dirty mind trick in the book. Can’t wait to see what comes next.

P.S. Can Rune please have a mate?!?!
