Long ago, shape-shifters reigned as gods. But even gods have laws that they break at their own peril . . .

Each member of Dirk & Steele has a unique ability. Soria's is the gift of communication—which is why she's been chosen to learn the language of a tormented warrior resurrected after thousands of years of icy sleep.

He is Karr, and once he was a king. Strong as a lion, quick and deadly as a serpent, he saw everything he loved consumed in flames. Death was to be his salvation, but thousands of years later he has been awakened against his will. Now a breathtaking human moves him in ways he neither understands nor desires. But Soria can see beyond his rage . . . and only she can speak the words that will cool the destructive fury in his soul.

Words of love.

My Thoughts

Strength of a lion, heart of a man

This book is a must have for any shifter lovers bookshelf. This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be the last. Between the beautiful descriptions of the different places these characters go and the characters themselves this book was impossible to put down.

I really liked how communication both verbally and non verbally played a part in the relationship between Karr and Soria. They are both great characters who share some great chemistry. So much emotion was portrayed through a few words and small touches.

Marjorie does a wonderful job in building up the suspense and allowing readers to learn right along with the characters about this unique breed of shifters. I really felt for Karr and how lost he must have felt getting brought to an unfamiliar time when everyone he loved was already gone.

I highly recommend “The Fire King” for any romance fans shelf, especially if you love shifters!
