Book Giveaway: THE FIRE KING by Marjorie Liu

THE FIRE KING -- Marjorie Liu
Out now!

Long ago, shape-shifters were plentiful, soaring through the sky as crows, racing across African veldts as cheetahs, raging furious as dragons atop the Himalayas. Like gods, they reigned supreme. But even gods have laws, and those laws, when broken, destroy.







Zoufalství. Epätoivo. Asa. Three words in three very different languages, and yet Soria understands. Like all members of Dirk & Steele, she has a gift, and hers is communication. When she is chosen to learn the dead language of a shape-shifter resurrected after thousands of years of icy sleep, she discovers a warrior consumed with fury.






Strong as a lion, quick as a serpent—Karr is his name, and in his day he was king. But he is a son of strife, a creature of tragedy. As fire consumed all he loved, so death was to be his atonement. Now, against his will, he has awoken. Zoufalství. Epätoivo. Asa. In English, the word is despair. But Soria knows the words for love.

Read an excerpt here.

Hello! Thanks for this cool giveaway! Erotic and Exotic, so maybe I should say HOT giveaway! I read 3 to 4 books per week. However, when I have my weekend lined up just right, I can read (and still enjoy) 4 or more books just during the weekend. gcwhiskas at aol dot com

When homework and other duties are light, I get go through three, four, sometimes five books a week. These past couple weeks have been pretty bad, so I'm down to half a book a week, but that's with at least two books for school per week... So we'll average it to.. three? Two and a half, maybe?

Thanks!

I love the Dirk & Steel series by Marjorie M. Liu but haven't had the chance to read this one yet!

On a good week 3, maybe 4 books. It does depend on the books. A contemporary I can read in about a day & a half but a scifi/fantasy takes a bit longer, probably because of the more intricate world building.
