Review: The Kraken King Part VIII: The Kraken King and The Greatest Adventure by Meljean Brook (+a Giveaway!)

Arriving in Krakentown with their enemies in hot pursuit, Zenobia doesn’t know how they can even hope to win. Being terrified brings forth an undeniable truth: she loves Ariq and will do whatever it takes to stand by him.

But as their adversaries appear on the horizon, they realize that not all is lost. Drawing on the power of the terrible war machine, Ariq, Zenobia, and the entire town must put their lives on the line to protect what they love…


Everything that Ariq and Zenobia have been crazy.  They are now back in Krakentown and they have 3 different enemies to work through - the Empress being the one that could really make or break the town.  Ariq didn't want to actually use the Skybreaker but he soon realizes that he has no choice and must do what he can to save his town. He uses all of his resources as well as the assistance of friends old and new and sets out to show that him and his town aren't threats.

The final installment in the Kraken King was so very good.  Yes, it's the conclusion to the story but it was almost non stop action and I loved it.  

At the heart of Brooks's stories we have romance.  This was shown so clearly and so wonderfully in Part VIII.  Zenobia and Ariq are so awesome together.  They are intellectually perfect for each other and I adore how much they love each other.  They finally have the faith in the other that their love is true and lasting.  It made my heart happy to read such a touching story. 

Rating: 5 out of 5

The series:

I highly recommend this serial novel.  It's much larger than a regular novel and is worth every penny imho. From word one I couldn't get enough of The Kraken King and that excitement stayed with me throughout the series. 

If you haven't started it then you should. Now.  Go on, I'll wait.  *twiddles thumbs* Okay you're taking way too long.  Why don't I help you along?  I'll give away the first two parts to one lucky winner.  Believe me, you won't want to stop reading.
