Synopsis (Goodreads):
With their lives and the fate of an empire at stake, Ariq is forced to leave Zenobia behind. Held captive by their enemies, Zenobia can only pray that Ariq keeps his promise to come for her—until a terrible loss prods her to action.

Ariq has no intention of handing over the Skybreaker to the two men responsible for the marauders’ attacks against Krakentown—but without a ransom to give them, Ariq must risk everything to rescue Zenobia and stop the swarming forces bent on destruction…
Thoughts on The Kraken King and the Iron Heart: I think one of the things that gets me the most about Zenobia is how fragile she is. Not physically, but emotionally. She has such a hard time believing Ariq would want her for her. Her captors strike right at the heart of her fears, but instead of breaking her, it gives her the strength to fight back.

As an aside, what the general did to Zenobia pained me. *quietly kicks things* I hope he gets what's coming to him. In a big, painful way.

Meanwhile, Ariq's determination to get to Zenobia despite all the roadblocks thrown in his way made me squeal. I admire a man who will do the unthinkable and stop at nothing to keep a promise. *slow thumbs up* to that.

It's going to be very hard waiting for the next installment. I want to know what's coming for our heroes. I want to know how they're going to work their way out of the issues that have arisen. *flails dramatically*

I feel like a junkie waiting for my next hit.
