But when danger invades their lovers’ sanctuary, Ariq and Zenobia will have to put aside their troubled emotions. Outwitting their enemies and the Empress will be no easy feat. Luckily, they have a few allies waiting in the wings…

More to come…Don’t miss The Kraken King, Part VIII
I had to wait before I could write this review because I was so beside myself. In fact I may or may not have emailed Meljean and called her some mean names for leaving me like this.
This serial is amazing. Flat out amazing. I’ve never read anything like what Meljean can do with words. It’s beautiful and exciting and sensual and dare I say it, steamy?( Bad Steampunk pun).
This has a cliffhanger ending, but part VIII will be out soon, and people, please buy this. It’s worth your money and your time.
We see the Empress try to get the Skybreaker from Ariq. The Skybreaker is a war machine that he has been hiding from the world in hopes it would never be used. He knows that whoever got their hands on it, would use it to decimate nations. It’s too dangerous for any one man to have.
But the Empress wants it, and isn’t above having her captain torture Ariq to get what she wants.
And Ariq knows this. Zenobia has no idea. But when she is brought in to be used as a weapon against him, I just can’t even. I lost it.
