Two years ago, blacksmith Ivy, desperate to flee London, purchased her overseas passage by agreeing to spend the voyage in the bed of the pirate captain, Mad Machen. Saved at the last minute by his rival, Ivy scraped out a new life in Fool’s Cove…until Mad Machen finds her, forces her to accept a job that will create a monster, and reminds her that she still owes him the price of a journey…Thoughts on Here There Be Monsters: I am so enraptured of the Iron Seas series right now. Meljean Brook could write about a gentle Kraken trying to reconcile with his Kraken wife while dealing with the stresses of his day job and I'd be all "WOOT! MOAR IRON SEAS!"
Okay. Maybe that wasn't the best scenario, but YOU GET THE POINT.
This world. SO GOOD. I'm all flaily hands and crazy eyes about it. It's kinda an awesome feeling.
This time around, we're given a pirate and a blacksmith. Both of them have their secrets and I ADORED watching their story unfold. I mean, I wasn't a huge fan of what Lady Corsair did, BUT I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND AT THE SAME TIME.
Bonus: Ivy's way of bolstering Mad's reputation CRACKED ME UP. Gotta love a girl with spirit!
Bottom line -- I'm in love with this entire series and WANT MOAR!
