She embarks on journey with Helene, her childhood friend, to the Red City, where Helene’s husband works as the French ambas ...more

Quick & Dirty: A woman craving adventure finds herself getting almost more than she can handle when she’s rescued by a man who quickly becomes fascinated by her.
Opening Sentence: If this letter is in your hands instead of on my desk where I left it, you must have flown to Fladstrand without first collecting your correspondence in Port Fallow–where the note I sent to you would have saved you a trip.

This story is epic. The adventure unparalleled. The romance deeper and all-consuming than any I can recall.
This amazing book took me on a the fantasy ride of a lifetime. Without question, one of the best books I've ever read.
Thank you, Meljean, for writing the most incredible story. Beyond a doubt, you are an auto-buy author for me. ...more
I have to thank Naysa for this novel. I'm not a fan of serials, and I stay clear when the overall price is going to be unacceptable for me (16$ here). So I had ignored the Kraken King. She had given me a chance to try it, and I was hooked. Lucky for me, the book was out and at a normal price, so I grabbed it.
The world-building is stellar as usual, and the plot intriguing, even if it seemed to me a bit stretched. It lost a star for the heroine. I liked her, but could not get her . I was lef ...more
re-read 12/24/14 (originally read June 2014)
This was probably my favorite book of 2014. It has everything - action, adventure, emotions, a badass hero and a leading lady with spirit and a brain. I found myself smiling, laughing and enjoying this adventure just as much the 2nd time around even though it had only been 6 months between reads. This has an established spot in my all time favorite books.

When it comes to fantastical fiction, there has to be a careful balance of fierce imagination and the author’s own skill. Take Margaret Atwood, or Arthur C. Clarke- they could weave places and stories that were utterly removed from literally anything that you’d ever seen or heard of before, but th ...more
Blog rating: A
Let me start by saying that I originally started reviewing this story when it was being released as a serial. And also a disclaimer, I would receive 3-4 parts in each review bundle, so I didn’t have as long of a wait between parts as some readers did. That said, I realized something valuable with that experience, my first in reading a serial – I am NOT a serial reader. At all. I found that having a forced break between parts was more frustra ...more
