Synopsis (Goodreads):
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…
Thoughts on The Kraken King and the Greatest Adventure: Man, I liked this entire story. The final installment didn't disappoint in the least. With danger closing in on two fronts Ariq is faced with some hard choices -- namely, how does he protect both the woman he loves and the town that looks to him with as little bloodshed as possible.

We've been teased throughout the installments about the great war machine Ariq refuses to hand over despite the numerous threats to himself and his people. Without giving too much away, it definitely came off as awe inspiring and I can understand why Ariq won't allow anyone to control it.

The love story continues to deepen, Zenobia and Ariq iron out the last few hiccups that might have derailed their relationship, and ... OMG! I WANT MORE! *quietly cries now that it's over*
