"Readers of early Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and the best thrillers out there should try Liu now." -Publishers Weekly In the realm of paranormal romance, no author burns hotter than New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu! The Fire King is yet another blazing example of her originality, sensuality, and breathtaking storytelling prowess. Her passionate tales centered around the mysterious Dirk and Steele Detective Agency-with its roster of enigmatic psychics, telepaths, shapeshifters, and extraordinary beings-have set a high standard for this popular romance subgenre. In The Fire King, her tormented shape-shifting hero-once almost a god, now much more than a man-freed against his will from an eternal darkness, must overcome his rage and the pain of his tragic past by accepting the love of a remarkable woman with an extraordinary gift. A Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award winner and multiple RITA Award nominee, Lui is not to be missed if your taste is for love stories from the supernatural side. In fact, Christina Feehan, arguably the Queen of paranormal romantic fiction, says, "Anyone who loves my work should love hers."
