#BookReview: The Warrior King (Inferno Rising #3) by Abigail Owen

Synopsis: 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…

My Review: 
This is book three in Owen's Inferno Rising series. I will say that you need to read the first two books in this series before reading this one. Because if you don't you will be totally lost.  However, there are so many references to what happened in the previous books. I enjoyed the overall story even though the interspecies mating between dragons and phoenixes kind of boggles the mind. It's a captivating fantasy romance nonetheless.  I liked how Meira and Samael overcome the odds and find their HEA. There was enough action to keep me engaged, and the sex scenes were slightly steamy, however I did not fall in love with the characters or the overall story enough to continue with the series. 


"Ohh boy!  From the blurb to the last page this book was one raging inferno after another. The author kept up the excitement and danger from her previous books and threw in some curves that no one saw coming. This book was such a fantastic addition to the series, and I can't wait to see what she thinks up to top it next." -Romance Readers Guide to Passion 

"The twists don't stop...and I swear one had my mouth dropping in shock. I was not prepared at all. The journey was long, and the danger was great. The heartache I felt watching this story unfold was profound, but I really liked the ending and am really looking forward to the next book." -Dark Thoughts Blog 

"An exciting third installment of the Inferno Rising series, a hot, action packed must read paranormal romance series! The Warrior King is a steamy, intense/suspense filled forbidden romance with dragon politics, epic battles and heart breaking moments!" -Falling Down the Book Hole 

"The Warrior King is an epic paranormal romance." -Reviews by Saph 

"The mating is HOT! and the future, though filled with danger, is bright, hopeful. I love that it ends on a positive note, leaving me feeling good and wanting more." -Sherry F., Goodreads 

"The Warrior King, Book 3 of Abigail Owen's Inferno Rising series, features excellent character development and growth, lively description, exciting action, and a steamy, emotional romance between phoenix Meira Amon and dragon shifter Samael Veles." -Affaire de Coeur Magazine
