Situated on a tree-studded hill near the wall, the sprawling residence had the same red roof, but the wide balconies, paired columns, and tall windows could have been lifted from a manor on the French islands in the Caribbean. A wrought-iron crest on the roof formed a heavy crown for the airy facade-which, Zenobia thought, typified almost everything French.

The Kraken King is action packed from beginning to end as Brook ensures there is literally never a dull moment - but she also doesn't skimp on the character development or romance. I’ll admit, I waited to read it because I can’t handle serial novels, but the premise is clever, particularly considering who the heroine is.

I hardly know if there is even any purpose to writing a letter, or whether you’ll receive it. If you ever do, I doubt it is because my captors have put a message in the post for me.

Meljean Brook ped this page from my notebook and given it to you in person. As you have likely guessed, I have been kidnapped again-but at least my abductors do not want gold this time. It’s somewhat flattering that my worth is equal to the worth of a giant war machine that could change the course of history. Whether that ransom will be paid is another question entirely

Experience the incredible adventure and heart-stopping romance of the Iron Seas in this thrilling steampunk tale from New York Times bestselling author Meljean Brook.  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 vigilantly guard her identity. 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...

Like, seriously good. The characters are 3-dimensional, with well-developed personalities. Their inner voices give such a realistic feeling that we're getting to know them, that they're real people with real histories. Zenobia is a fantastic female protagonist, and Ariq is wonnnnnnnderful. I was halfway in love with him by the time I finished the book, and that almost never happens, as most authors write male protags as either arrogant D-bags or just boring AF.

The chemistry and sexual tension occur immediately, but MB's deft touch ensures it feels natural, and builds it realistically-- it's not the clumsy insta-passion one gets so often in poorly-written novels. The obstacles that arise to block the development of their romance are either external (outside their control) or due to the old plot device of a misunderstanding that they're too timid to clear up with some plain talking, but I ain't even mad: even this old chestnut was done in a way that the lack of communication felt reasonable, because of her well-established insecurities.

The plot is intricate and progresses logically; there are no pointless scenes; the pacing is brisk in an exciting way, not neglectful of the connective tissue that scenes need to progress from one to the next. There are no superfluous subplots; continuity is excellent, with things that exist in the first chapter being present in the last instead of forgotten along the way.

Mechanics (spelling, punctuation, grammar, syntax) are splendid. Stylistics and flow are spare and elegant, but not skimpy; nothing florid or distracting, which is a relief, after reading so many books just overloaded with fussy, overwrought prose. Dialogue is natural; blocking and description are juuuust enough for us to be able to imagine MB's vision of a scene without distracting from the scene itself.

This book was freaking awesome, and I am a picky biatch. I *look* for things to complain about, and I had but a single complaint about this book: it ended. I didn't want it to.

The Kraken King was first published as a eight part Kindle serial. I resisted the serial at $1.99 per part and purchased the Kindle book for $7.99 when it was released.

Zenobia Fox has been a character for several books. We met her through her letters to her bother Archimedes and her books about her brothers adventures. Each time she has been safely at home but this time she gets her own adventure and finds that she is much stronger than she thinks.

Her adventure starts when Ariq, the Kraken King, saves her. Both have an immediate attraction but things keep getting in the way. There are many interesting character and places in The Kraken King. As this started as an eight part there is a lot of time for character development and world building. Some of that slows the story down but adds to the hooks for new stories in the Iron Seas series.

I loved how both Zenobia and Ariq built a great relationship and how that relationship drove the story. There is danger, adventure, more danger and finally a great ending. It was great to see Archimedes and Lady Corsair as side characters. I hope to see all four again soon.

Does anyone _like_ serials? I certainly don't but I'm sure the publishers enjoy charging us 2-3x as much. Stop it, authors, it cheapens you. This isn't Dickens-inian London & no one is standing on street corners reading aloud. I'll totally pay $8-$10 for a 576 page book but $16 is ridiculous. If you must write a serial, charge one upfront price and then release as you like (Seanan McGuire did that with "Indexing" and a weekly email reminder/auto download). Fortunately I discovered this book around "episode" 6, so I was able to restrain myself til the compilation came out.

Sorry, tangent. Anyway, Ive loved the Iron Seas series since there was only book 1. Ms Brooks' characters are (as usual) well-fleshed out - thank you, thank you, thank you for never giving us TSTL heroines or crazily "alpha" male heros. The dialogue reads naturally and there's a good balance of banter and conversation The plot is good in that the miniplots lead logically into the metaplot with minimal Deus ex Machina. The only time I sorta rolled my eyes is when (light spoilers, I guess) he located the airship/balloon over the ocean and even then the author gave a reason, not just "oh hey, I stumbled randomly into you, yay!" It also has a good mix of action with plot-driving Hero's Journey.

My last thumbs up goes to the use of steampunk. This is a hard genre to write casually. Too much explanation and you're getting into cerebral technicalities ("The Difference Engine"), too little and you're left fuming that someone has a brass-and-leather iPod (yes, I read a book that had both that and handheld 'personal telegraphs' so they could text each other).

I have to laugh now, cuz when I started writing this I planned to say "great book, recommend it, you should read it and btw WHERE HAS MELJEAN GONE, PLEASE COME BACK" and then I got all distracted and rambling. So yeah. Great book! Read it! Please come back Meljean, I've read all the novels/novellas/short stories so I need new ones!
