The Kraken King

The Iron Duke is #80 on AAR’s Top 100 Romances (2013), but in my opinion, The Kraken King, the fourth book in the series is even better. Zenobia Fox is the author of the novels starring her adventurer brother Archimedes, but these books have made her a ransom target for people seeking to extort ...

The Iron Duke

This is the first book I have read by this author, and for the first half or so, I read it with rather mixed feelings, mostly delighted but thoroughly exasperated at certain passages. Fortunately it turned out to be an excellent read overall, and most definitely a series to follow. Let’s begin ...

Guardian Demon

I can't say I would happily die tomorrow, but if I did, I could rest a little easier in the knowledge that Michael from Meljean Brook's Guardian series finally got his well-deserved HEA, and that one of my favorite series ended on high note. Guardians are super-powered humans, conscri ...

Riveted

The dystopian world of the Iron Seas series thrives in this third installment featuring the stoker on an airship and a scientist studying volcanoes who face an evil genius on the treacherously cold plains of Iceland. Both Annika and David are on quests: she to find her sister Källa and he to ful ...

Riveted

Narrated by Alison Larkin I’m a big fan of Meljean Brook’s Iron Seas series but was disappointed to learn that Faye Adele had been replaced as narrator. That disappointment increased as I began listening to the book. I had problems with both the narration and the story. This fe ...

Heart of Steel

A world controlled by the Horde. Nanoagents. Clockwork men. Europe overrun with zombies. We can be only one place: The Iron Seas. This outstanding steampunk series combines dangerous women, adventurous men, endless action, and scintillating romance. Lovers of this genre really can't do better than ...

Demon Marked

Look up complex in the dictionary and one of the definitions will be "novels by Meljean Brook, esp the Guardian series." Ms. Brook can also be found in the thesaurus under antonyms for "brain candy." Hers are not the type of books that you read between phone calls or on your lunch break. Concentrati ...

Demon Blood

In a way, Meljean Brook’s latest installment to her Guardian series reminds me of the grand tradition of oral mythology. It has the same epic quality, with myriad storylines, races, motives, and degrees of good and bad, and I read Demon Blood with the same breathless anticipation with which one mi ...

Demon Forged

Demon Forged is the eighth in this paranormal Guardian series but this is the first I have read of them. Despite this, I fell neatly enough into the world, though I know some things went over my head or were past my understanding. Perhaps there were even some in-jokes I missed. I w ...

Demon Bound

Demon Bound is the first novel I've read by Meljean Brook and I must admit that I probably shouldn’t have jumped into this series mid-steam. However, this book can be read as a stand-alone, although I believe the experience would have been richer had I read the three previous books in the series. ...
