Kasia Amon is an expert at hiding. The power that she can bring because of who and what she is makes her a mark on the entire supernatural world. Specifically for dragon shifters. To them, she is a prize to be seized. Their golden ticket to power. But she can't help but burst into flames, and there's a sexy dragon shifter in town hunting for her…

Brand Astarot has spent his whole life hiding his true identity, shunned by his own kind. His only hope of survival is his dangerous reputation. Delivering a phoenix to the feared Blood King will bring him one step closer to the revenge he's been seeking for centuries. He will not let the feisty beauty go. Brand begins to form a new plan when Kasia ignites a white-hot need in him he can't ignore: to claim her for himself...and take back his birthright.


The Cons 
Alright, My Little Wonder bugs first things first we're going to talk about what I don't like about this book. To be honest I think it's a little dry. I don't feel a lot of emotion with the characters. Though the characters do have a lot of Dimension to them. The problem is that when it comes to those moments that should be very emotional and very intense the author kind of falls short. You don't really feel it. Even though she writes the scene in the characters are saying things that are emotional. 

But for some reason, she doesn't drag it on enough for the reader to really dwell on it and drown in those emotions. Which really latches you onto the character and she missed the mark on this. The good thing is that it didn't ruin the book but it could have been better. The only part that made me emotional was the very end of the book I'm not going to spoil it for you but something happens and there the writer did do a good job.

The Pros 
On the positive, it was fun to immerse myself in this new world of dragon shifters that I have never experienced. Though I have read other books about Dragon shifters this is the first one that really took the society and the culture and really made it into something. I enjoyed the story overall it was well written there weren’t any plot holes that I could see. And you really wanted to know what would happen at the end. The Love Story between the two main characters was very nice and I really enjoyed their relationship. There was enough tension that you did enjoy their relationship and it was a bit of a slow burn... no pun intended. 

One of the characters that I like in the book that you wouldn't expect is the bad guy's brother which is Nathair. I am hoping that the author writes a book about him or at least gives you more about his character. Because even though he's in the bad guy team he seems to not be a bad guy. But who knows what will happen with this character, but I can't wait to find out

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. The story is very gripping you want to know what is going to happen next. I do plan on reading the next book. I am desperate to find out what happens to her other sisters in the book and just How Deep The Rabbit Hole goes.

The Rogue King is a wonderful action-adventure book with a touch of sexy Romance. That'll definitely quench your paranormal but more than anything fantasy and adventure thirst.
