For those who loved THE KRAKEN KING AND THE INEVITABLE ABDUCTION, Parts IV and V of THE KRAKEN KING serial keep the action and the passion turned all the way up. Blackmail, hurried marriages, daring escapes and a love match worth savoring, these two portions of the serial show how great THE KRAKEN KING can be.
With these two new additions to the THE KRAKEN KING serial adventure, Zenobia and Ariq are established, compelling, and off on their adventure. Moving from the comfort of Ariq’s encampment to the wider world, we get to see both Ariq’s political savvy and the price of Zenobia’s fame in action. Zenobia and Ariq have an undeniable chemistry, but loyalties to respective loved ones mean their keeping all of that heat under wraps for much of this journey… but not all.
A triumphant revival of the serial format, THE KRAKEN KING offers exotic locations, breathtaking sexual chemistry, and and a sweeping, political adventure that offers intrigue and danger on every page. Dickens would be proud, Meljean Brook has brought the serial into the modern day.
While I have fallen in love with various aspects of The Guardian series over the years, there have been two dominant threads plucked in the background, piquing my curiosity and humming along behind the humor, the violence, and the happily-ever-afters of every other book. This ever building anticipation culminates in GUARDIAN DEMON and Brook makes this last story more than worth the wait. Engrossing action, off the charts romance, GUARDIAN DEMON is one of the most satisfying series finales I’ve ever read.
I was both hopeful and trepidatious approaching RIVETED, the third book in the fantastic Iron Seas series. With an unknown hero and heroine, I was concerned that meeting these brand new characters would make or break my enjoyment of the book. Not only were Annika and David interesting and winning, I had forgotten that the Iron Seas series is more than the sum of its characters. The world itself is utterly captivating, and RIVETED delivers a really interesting look outside the boundaries that prior books had explored, in the New World and trade routes of the Atlantic.
