Years have passed since then, but people are still looking for answers to the mysteries that went on there. So Sascha tells his story, a frightening tale of fire, demons, and a gypsy girl Sascha did not save.
My mind is still reeling! What a clever and strange story. Very well written. Creepy. Ingenious. And a quite bizarre. This story sucked me in with a strange curiosity that just kept growing and growing. It's scary at times, borderline horror. But this book raises lots of questions in the readers mind. And not all my questions were answered in the end. This is a book that will make you think long after you've finished it.

"Only ten pages. I can read one more chapter!"
This book falls into that category. While definitely a page-turner, the philosophical ideas that permeate the pages of KÃÂ¶nig's Fire also insist that the reader pause to chew and reflect. A well-crafted action thriller that investigates human nature--a must read!
Kerry NietzAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5This book is awesome.October 22, 2010Kerry NietzAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Konig'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!!
