Book Description

PARASITE PUBLICATIONS ~ Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy

For lovers of unforgettable shapeshifter fantasies, intense Alaskan adventures, and hilarious paranormal romances, Alaskan Fury is an award-winning stand-alone novel that leaves readers breathless to the very last page...

Long ago, Kaashifah the Fury, Chosen warrior of the Lord of War, fought a djinni to a stalemate in an ancient duel of souls. Three thousand years later, she and ‘Aqrab, the passionate djinni prince of the Fourth Lands, are still bound together, each waiting for the other to make that final, killing blow. To complicate matters, they are being hunted across the vast Alaskan wilderness by a team of holy soldiers who are specially trained—and highly successful—at capturing the numerous magical beings of the Five Realms. In order to save their friends from the Inquisition, some compromises must be made…and some boons given. But in unraveling the magics that bind them, will these two ancient immortals learn to trust each other, or will their own thawing hearts be their undoing?

ALASKAN FURY is a whirlwind tale of two immortals woven together by a three-thousand-year-old curse who are forced to flee across the Alaskan wilderness in search of dragons to save their friends. It is a story of love and adventure, of djinni wish-makings and brutal sword fights, of Inquisitional wits and mythological heroes, of depth of spirit battling bigotry and violence. Fast-paced and full of action, it will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Sara King was four years old when she wrote her first short story. And, while “Bob the Brontosaurus” and “Sammy the Snake” weren’t exactly enthralling reading material, she thankfully progressed to novels when she was 12. Seventeen years later, she is currently working on her 16th book, Alaskan Fang, the third novel in the Guardians of the First Realm Alaskan Paranormal world. Sara lives in Alaska with her soulmate, Robert.

About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR (a.k.a. Join My Alaskan Army) Email me. No, seriously, email me. kingnovel@gmail.com. Go do it. Right now. I love keeping my ear to the very heart of the publishing industry—which means I have to talk to you. I think entertaining and inspiring others is the most important thing about writing, and if I’m doing my job right, people will actually want to tell me what they think. So, dammit, if you were entertained or inspired, I wanna hear from you. I’m utterly freakin’ serious. In case you’re still not convinced, consider this: I’m a lifelong Alaskan. We do things differently here. With the roving grizzly bears (yes, I live in the Bush, not like those pussies in town) and my closest neighbor a mile away, it gets kinda lonely when it’s just me and my computer and a big, vast wilderness out my back door. I want to talk to the people who are reading my books, because who the hell else am I going to talk to?! In case you’re concerned about writing to a complete stranger, I assure you I’m totally approachable, in my random, quirky, too-much-time-without-sun kind of way. I’ve spent my entire life (starting at three years old!) working on writing as an art form, and I’ve poured my heart and soul into the twenty (ish) books I’ve written, so you can be damn sure I want feedback. I mean, putting together these (utterly brilliant, totally awesome) masterpieces and then getting nothing but silence is like building the Eiffel Tower and having people go…meh. So shoot me an email at kingnovel@gmail.com and let me know your thoughts on the book! I respond to every email I get (though sometimes it takes longer than others). Oh, and friend me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/kingfiction (authors need friends, too) and check my Author Page https://www.facebook.com/sknovel for the latest writerly news and updates. Or, even better, hop on over to Amazon and check out my other character-driven series, like Outer Bounds: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IO7QAGO/ or Millennium Potion: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007W6RBSE/ or, heck, even my Alaskan Paranormal/Fantasy series Guardians of the First Realm: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0073WZ01C/ to see some of my other compelling characters in action!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sequel -- Hoping for More Soon! September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I recently finished Alaska Fire, the first book in this series, and loved the mythic and often quirky characters. The sequel, Alaskan Fury, is even better. Others here have given the plot and character outlines so there's no need to repeat that. I will admit right off that what attracted me was the word "Alaskan" in the title. Unlike some other writers I've attempted to read lately, Ms. King really does live there and makes the Bush come alive in the reader's mind. In addition, I'm a sucker for mythological creatures and worlds. Ms. King has done an impressive amount of research to bring alive not only the usual fantasy creatures -- werewolves, unicorns, dragons, etc. -- but some from other cultures -- djinni, Thunderbird, and Roman gods. She gives each character an unexpected, and often hilarious, personality of his/her own. I will conclude by saying that I borrowed this book from the Kindle Library, and read it all the way home on an 11-hour journey from northern Michigan to St. Louis. I do feel a bit guilty for not doing my share of the driving, but it was impossible to close the Kindle. I hope that you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

As compelling and complex as it's predecessor, Alaskan Fury starts off with a rush and immediately pulls us into the story, heart and soul. 'Aqrab, for all his threatening size and bluster, is a man thoroughly pledged to his woman, like it or not, and his agonizing decisions and misunderstandings with Kaashifah pluck at the heart strings. She is a Fury, a handmaiden of the sword sworn to Ares' service, and she cannot kill. For three centuries she has fought a game of politics and power with her Djinni, hoping to find a way out of the curses that tangle their lifethreads.

After a vigorous start, this story takes some time to develop. While it's always well-crafted and entertaining, I found myself looking forward to the next big development rather than absorbing the storyline I was reading. Luckily, Ms. King's writing is sophisticated enough that the antagonist you initially hate slowly becomes someone you hope has a change of heart, and the character development is thorough.

The Djinni and the Fury both have a rich sense of humor, although not always apparent, and both bear lifelong grudges toward the other. The duality of their feelings for each other are what kept me up reading, far past bedtime. Despite his strange and difficult-to-pronounce name, I really fell in love with 'Aqrab. His jovial personality and playful nature was a joy to read, and Kaashifah is a complex, compelling heroine with way more going on than you see at first glance. As the story progresses, Ms. King unravels more and more of Kaashifah's past, and this diminutive woman has truly suffered. The great thing about this series is that while the sex can be steamy and the characters practically burn for each other, it's not inappropriate or self-indulgent, nor does Ms.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm in love! March 27, 2012
By CaDeMe
Format:Kindle Edition
Sara King is a new author I have been enjoying lately. Alaskan Fury is the second book in her series, the first being Alaskan Fire -and I've got to say, BOTH books are AMAZING. I know I'm gushing; I'm trying not to, so stick with me, while I try to explain WHY I love this series.

I've already put my review of Alaskan Fire on Amazon and if you check it out, you'll see that I am not the only one in love with it, and that it is totally worthy of your book-lust.

So now I'm gonna talk about Alaskan Fury, and why IT is so great.

We start out where we left of in Alaskan Fire, with Kaashifah the little wolf we were introduced in her first book. She and her friend; `Aqrab (I use that term lightly) -the djinni.

I don't think I'd ever heard of a djinni before this story, so the term is still a little new to me, but to my understanding he is some sort of gene in a lamp type. In the first book she introduces a different sort of world, kind of like realms, but in this one we get to take a closer look and even venture into one. It wasn't like most books I read however, which of course is why I love her books so much, they are never like other books, it's as if she takes some of the same concepts, and turns them into something completely different and foreign, which is a hard thing to do as we see with some authors who like to repeat each other's plots.

With Alaskan Fury however, we are introduced to an entirely new breed of creatures, some new, some old, some I've never even heard of before, and every page is like a new adventure. Admittedly, I DID skip parts. BUT that is not the fault of the book, but rather my impatience to get to the next part.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the first book, but still enjoyable August 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an OK book. I didn't like it as much as the first one though. There didn't seem to be as much complexity to the plot. The first half seemed to be wholly dedicated to `Aqrab's attempts to convince Kaashifah to finally sleep with him. 250ish pages of that lost it's lustre pretty quick. Almost all of the action is packed into the second half.

The problem for me was that it felt unfinished. Yes, Kaashifah bested the bad guy, but it was Imelda who was the primary character within the Inquisition and her ark was left very much in the air. Perhaps there will be a third book based on her and the dragon. I don't know, but as it stands I was left wondering what it was all about. One bad guy down, over a billion left to go doesn't really strike me as all that much of an accomplishment.

I did really enjoyed the banter between the side characters. Most of them were incredibly old and powerful, therefore really conceited. It was a lot of fun to see them try to interact when each of them was used to being the only top-dog.

I have to admit I found the writing repetitive. Both in the sense that the same phrases were used a lot (and that's not even counting the ritualistic rabble that was used every-time the djinni cut a bargin) and because the reader is told the same thing multiple times.

My main complaint however is that, while I realize that everything worked out the way it was supposed to and 'Aqrab was trying to get Kaashifah to fulfil her actual duty, it felt to my very much like he was slowly trying to groom her to give up her vow of chastity. Any way you look at it he was purposefully chipping away at her determination and trying to get her to do something she was fundamentally opposed to. This never sat well with me.

She is fully acquainted with the quirks of outdoor plumbing, grizzly bears, questionable hygiene, private arsenals, and hypothermia, and has a vast and inspiration-rich wilderness right off her front doorstep.
