The Kraken King, Part V
The Kraken King and the Iron Heart
With their lives and the fate of an empire at stake, Ariq is forced to leave Zenobia behind. Held captive by their enemies, Zenobia can only pray that Ariq keeps his promise to come for her—until a terrible loss prods her to action.
Ariq has no intention of handing over the Skybreaker to the two men responsible for the marauders’ attacks against Krakentown—but without a ransom to give them, Ariq must risk everything to rescue Zenobia and stop the swarming forces bent on destruction…
Zenobia has to believe Ariq will come for her. If she loses faith, she might as well curl up in a ball and give up on life. It isn’t until her abductor decides to have tea with her, and in doing so he dashes all her hopes, that she decides to save herself.
Ariq escapes and nothing matters more to him than getting back to Zenobia. Her captor was wrong; he would move heaven and earth to get back to her.
But still he has to worry about the Empress of the Red City sending her navy down to Krakentown. If she believes the lies and half truths being fed her, his town is doomed. But will the Empress allow the Kraken King an audience?
