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 is him.

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.

Even better than The Rogue King!

When I read The Rogue King a year ago, I think it was my first dragon shifter book. I really enjoyed it because it wasn’t just a story about a shifter and his mate, it was more of an urban fantasy about the entire kingdom and the struggles both of them had gone throug ...more

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 i ...more

By Cindy ✩☽♔ July 21, 2020

You gotta love the haters to lovers trope. Much like the first book, we have a plentiful mix of sexual tension and supernatural politics. And while we've always known there was more to this world than dragons and humans, we get further glimpses here.

I'm not sure if I like this quite as much as the ...more

Pfew! The adventure continues and it's freaking awesome!

After that finale in book one I was dying to get my hands on this book.
Ladon The Blood King has found his own phoenix and his match , that's for sure.
Skylar Amon is Kasia's sister , black hair, blue eyes, strong willed, stubborn and a ...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 belie ...more

Skylar has snuck into the Lair of the Blue Dragons and is determined to rescue her sister. Trouble is Kasia doesn't want to be rescued because she's quite happy right there with Brand, her Dragon Mate .Things quickly escalate though when the somewhat reluctant King of the Blue Dragons Ladon realises ...more

Ladon has finally met his match, in more ways than one and the feisty, fiery Skylar Amon is just as determined to avoid any commitment with the fierce dragon king. She is a phoenix on a mission to avenge her parents’ death and reunite her sisters, but does she have what it takes besides determinatio ...more

By Amanda July 15, 2020

So I'll be honest, I had misread the description and I didn't know this was a dragon shifter book. I'm not a very big fan of shifter books. So I was a little bummed when I started reading. However, the doubts flew out the window like the fastest bird in the world. I LOVED this ARC. I started reading ...more

I'm excited because I have found a new author who does PNR really well. I love dragon shifter books and I felt like this was a fresh take on dragons.

The heroine was awesome! I love a female lead who can kick butt just as much as the male lead. There is one particular fight scene that I got suck a k ...more

Rating: 5 Stars

The second book in the Inferno Rising series is about Skylar and Ladon. If you’ve read Rogue King you were left with a killer cliffy that introduced Skylar. She gave off a warrior vibe and I was all over her girl power vibes! Throw in the fact that Ladon was a yummy but slightly ...more

Who doesn’t love a good dragon tale?!

Picking up where The Rogue King left off, The Blood King was just as jam packed as it’s predecessor! Enemies to lovers, sarcasm and snappy conversations...I loved the gradual build up between Ladon and Skylar as it showcased the growth of their feeling ...more

I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Blood King was such a fun book to dive into. Just like the previous one, I devoured this in one sitting. There's just something about the characters and Abigail's writing that makes me fall in love with everything so freaki ...more

ARC received for review

Great second book. It picks up right where the first one left off. Skylar is just as stubborn and amazing as her sister. Ladon doesn't want to take no for an answer, and doesn't. Lots of drama, battling dragons, and hot sex. Now, who will the next sister wind up with? ...more

By Mary August 25, 2020

Skylar thinks she is going to rescue her sister from the dragons and her supposed mate but she finds out very quickly that her sister doesn't need rescuing.

Ladon only wants to mate Skylar so that he has more power to take out the High King. But they have a lot of chemistry that neither of them were ...more

By Tricia August 09, 2020

I've been eagerly awaiting this book since the minute I finished The Rogue King! While I thoroughly enjoyed it, I think Kasia stole the show in a lot of ways in the first book and Skylar was a bit more enigmatic and more standoffish in this one so it made it harder to connect. It also made the conne ...more

By Kim September 05, 2020

I really liked this book. The chemistry between the main characters is soo good. It had some funny bits in it as well. And the story is somewhat the same as the first book but has some nice twist in it.

Overal a nice read and I'm looking forward to the next book. ...more

I really liked The Blood King. I loved getting to know the four sisters better. Skylar was amazing, strong and brave. I loved her personality, fun and snarky at times. The evil Pytheios was mean as ever. Ladon Ormarr, and horney dragon! Skylar and Ladon, they make an amazing couple. Plenty ...more

I love these dragon shifters! I haven't really enjoyed shifter books in quite a while, but Abigail brought me back in like gangbusters! From the first one I read in the Fire's Edge series, I was captivated. And I have stayed that way straight through.
