Publisher's Summary

A former smuggler and thief, Ariq--better known as the Kraken King--doesn't know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she's a spy or a pawn in someone else's game, Ariq isn't about to let her out of his sight until he finds out.
After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to guard her identity vigilantly. While her brother ,Archimedes, is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own--besides the stories she writes. But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper.

Write yourself out of this one Zenobia Fox.

Another hit for the Iron Seas series. As per the series there is lots of adventure, fantasy, and romance. Ariq and Zenobia make for a steamy couple. I love the steampunk aspect of this series, it is quite imaginative. I went back and reread the other four books in this series because it had been a while since I read them and I was glad I did. The first three books were by a different narrator than the last two. While I didn't mind Alison Larkin as the narrator, I did think that Faye Adele did a better job. Mind you that I don't usually get to annoyed by the narrator as long as the author rocks. I'm hoping there will be more to this series. Start with the prequel Here There Be Monsters if you are interested in this series.

Very sad

I waited forever to get this book in audio. I have all the other Iron Seas in audio. I'm very sad to say, while the story was on par with the others in the series, I really didn't like the reader. She uses a very *baby-like* voice for Zenobia. For me it really didn't fit the character at all. I don't think Alison Larkin would be wrong for another type of character or book but for this book I feel strongly this was a bad pairing.
