The Kraken King, Part VI
The Kraken King and the Crumbling Walls
Reunited, Ariq and Zenobia must journey over the red wall and make a desperate appeal to the one woman with enough power to halt the marauders’ plans—the Empress of Nippon.
But even the Kraken King cannot demand the attentions of an empress. Masked and quarantined, Ariq and Zenobia are forced to bide their time. Despite the fact that they are as physically close as two people can be, Zenobia is trying to keep the man she can’t help but love at a distance, terrified she’ll be hurt again. And all the while, the mysteries of the Living City grow around them.
Tuesday’s, an otherwise inconsequential day in the week is now what I call the Kraken Tuesday. By now you must realise that this series is published every Tuesday and this weeks series? Wow! What to say?
Some books are difficult to review, mainly because all that you want to shout out about is a spoiler. Maybe I can mention… no not that scene, maybe the one where…… no not that one either. So basically in this review I’m not telling you squat! But I suppose I do have to write something, anything? Okay, so maybe I can tell you that I sighed a lot (enough to get hubby to glance at me sideways) and that this was the most amazingly beautiful part of the series so far. Oh myyy! The descriptions of the Red City are wonderful and Zenobia’s character, well she is just an amazing character, inspiring to real women showing us to be practical and that courage comes whether you believe you have it or not. What am I learning from this character? Embrace it, embrace it all with everything that life has to offer.
And Ariq, well I could tell you but then your reward would be lessened when you read it. But I can tell you that MB has pretty much screwed things over for men, every woman that has read this book is going to be wishing for an Ariq. Mr Darcy? Who is Mr Darcy? Who needs a Mr Darcy when you can have a Ariq instead?
Can’t say much more without giving away spoilers… so I will just say, if you are not reading this you have no idea on what you are missing.
