A book that keeps you on edge with each turn of the page.

The prose are vivid and engaging, the story itself riveting, the action packed with tension and the themes subtle yet bold and moving.

After reading a bunch of reviews on "Konig's Fire" I thought this book was right up my alley. I hadn't read "The Dark Man" yet but decided to jump ahead to Marc's second book. They're not a series so what they heck. (I'm reading "The Dark Man" now since this book was so good.) Konig's Fire is the type of book that can go two ways. One: You can read it and do little thinking and be entertained. Or two: You can think, dive in and find spoonfuls of great knowledge and understanding. For me, the second approach is what truly makes this book an honor to read.

You've probably read the book description by now but let me tell you, it's not what you think. A book about a torture camp during WWII would not be on my list of reading material but it's so much more then that. It'll challenge you, keep you thinking and shine light into your darkened corners.

Biblically I like the way Marc thinks. I've read a few of his Internet articles and listened to a couple interviews which sparked an interest in his writing. Especially his view of The Shack. Marc is not only a Bible teacher, he is a student of philosophy and it shows in his writing. Not only is it Biblically solid it's philosophically rich. He doesn't paint a one-dimensional god but shows an awesome God as testified in Scripture. God's love and forgiveness shines through but it doesn't end there - we also see His wrath and the consequences of our sin. Konig's Fire is one of those books that will change the reader forever if they allow it.

The writing style is really good although if I heard the word "screeched" one more time I was going to... screech! The storytelling is unique as it doesn't seem to follow a prescribed format. I did have a couple of minor plot concerns but nothing terribly important.

Konig's Fire is a work of art. From start to finish it is compelling, moving and utterly fantastic. In raw inventiveness it rivals the writings of Stephen King at his very best. (Think "The Mist" meets "Apt Pupil" with a touch of "Desperation," both literally and figuratively.)

This book has two things that most King novels do not have, though: philosophical depth and transcendent hope. I'm amazed by how well the "big themes" were blended into a narrative that is essentially all action.

As a fellow author, I'm inspired by what Mr. Schooley has done here. Konig's Fire deserves and has my highest praises. It raises the bar for the rest of us. Well done!!

The writing of this book is truly masterful. The prose are vivid and engaging, the story itself riveting, the action packed with tension and the themes subtle yet bold and moving. I'm still in awe of this book as I write this review, perhaps even more so as a fellow author. As has been said in another review, the bar has been raised.

This is a horror story no doubt and fans of Stephen King will love it, but it is truly much more than that. Get it, read it, ponder it. I predict an award winner with this one.

A once avid fan of Stephen King, I have now become an avid fan of Marc Schooley. Konig's Fire is filled with mystery and intrigue. It's filled with horror and suspense. A book that keeps you on edge with each turn of the page. Marc is an awesome author with mind boggling creativity and imagination. A must read!!! I've also read The Darkman by Marc Schooley, a must read also!

Format: Paperback
In 1941, they called him Nebuchadnezzar because Sascha König could make the oven hotter than anyone else who had worked at the Nacchthaus. For 70 years he had avoided capture and prosecution for the heinous Nazi crimes that took place during his time in the mine. Now an old man, facing his accusers, it was time to tell his story--the shocking truth of torture, depravity, and evil, pitted against courage, goodness, and God. Ex malo bonum.

It didn't take me long to fall in love with this book. The opening pages are fantastic, setting up an intriguing story that becomes more interesting and engrossing as the plot unfolds. Within the first few chapters, Schooley creates an environment inside the Nacchthaus that is both eerie and uncomfortable as well as characters that are instantly likeable and easy to pull for. An excellent setting combined with enjoyable characters opens the door for some great philosophical discussion and engaging themes. From start to finish, this is a solid book and one that was extremely hard to put down.

Early on, Schooley presents König in a sympathetic manner, which is key to making this story work. Without knowledge of his personality and beliefs, it would have been very hard to trust him or the story he is telling. Since the reader knows up front that König is a reluctant, fake Nazi, it highlights the position he is placed in and makes the choices he faces more difficult while at the same time heightening the suspense. By later working in some unlikely allies, Schooley is able to make the spiritual and philosophical dialogues flow and fit nicely into the story.

There are a lot of nice themes presented in König's Fire.
