Publisher's Summary

A century after a devastating volcanic eruption forced Iceland's inhabitants to abandon its shores, the island has become enshrouded in legend. But the truth behind the legends is mechanical, not magical - and the mystery of the island a matter of life and death for a community of women who once spilled noble blood to secure their freedom.
Five years ago, Annika unwittingly endangered that secret, but her sister Källa took the blame and was exiled. Now Annika serves on an airship, searching for her sister and longing to return home. But that home is threatened when scientific expedition leader David Kentewess comes aboard, looking to expose Annika's secrets.
Then disaster strikes, leaving David and Annika stranded on a glacier and pursued by a madman, with their very survival depending on keeping the heat rising between them - and generating lots of steam....

Another wonderful book by Meljean Brook!!

If you could sum up Riveted in three words, what would they be?

Adventurous. Thrilling. Emotional (in a good way!)


What other book might you compare Riveted to and why?

This is really a one-of-kind series for me. I've never read/listened to anything like this series - which makes it refreshing and interesting. : )


Have you listened to any of Alison Larkin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't heard Alison Larkin before but would say that she is a narrator that you would either love or hate at first. It took me a little to work up to liking her because the voice for the main female character is very... I'll say interesting with the accent and higher pitch. I am sad that they did not have Faye Adele continue as narrator for the series but with that said this book is 'seperate' in the series than the first books and having a new narrator expands that distinguishing factor.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes! There were quite a few. One especially at the end... but I won't ruin it for anyone!!


Any additional comments?

A disclaimer - this book is featured in the world of the Iron Seas Series but know that you won't see any of the characters from the first books. So going in prepare yourself as if you were starting a new series/stand alone book in a world you already know.

Emotional roller coaster

What made the experience of listening to Riveted the most enjoyable?

The narrator was marvelous.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Annika because she was really unusual as a heroine.


What does Alison Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her accents and voices for each character were fabulous.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There's this one part toward the end...OMG, heart wrenching. I cried (in a good way).


Any additional comments?

This book was odd for me because I didn't actually like the story as well as the prior Iron Seas book, but the emotions and the character arc was SO amazingly well done that I was super invested in the story anyway.
