A former smuggler and thief, Ariqâ€”better known as the Kraken
Kingâ€”doesnâ€™t know what to make of the clever, mysterious
woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders.
Unsure if sheâ€™s a spy or a pawn in someone elseâ€™s game, Ariq
isnâ€™t about to let her out of his sight until he finds outâ€¦
After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year,
Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity.
While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits,
Zenobia has had no adventures to call her ownâ€”besides the
stories she writes.
But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of
Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia
quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more
adventurous than any fiction she could put to paperâ€¦
