Serial Thursdays

The concept of a book being released as a serial is one that I am rather fond of due to sentimental reasons. Dumas released most of his works in serial form. It was the only way many people could afford to read novels at that time, so it meant that using this form of publishing, made his work accessible to a bigger audience. I
So I simply love the idea of it.
Finding out that one of my favorite authors has opted to release her newest book as a serial meant that  I will definitely jump on the opportunity to indulge in a old tradition, no questions asked.
So the journey through The Kraken King by Meljean Brook commenced. If you follow me on Goodreads you might have seen my ups and downs that were the result of this pursuit, and four serials in, I am halfway through the novel to be exact, I suddenly thought- I should share this experiment on our blog. So I thought I should resurrect Serial Wednesdays, but frankly due to my current work schedule it would be a feat of impossibility to read and review the serial by Wednesday hence Serial Thursdays was born.

Soooo join the fun?!





The Kraken King

Author: Meljean Brook
Publisher: InterMix
Series: Iron Seas #4
Genre: Steampunk



Summary:

A former smuggler and thief, Ariq—better known as the Kraken King—doesn’t know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she’s a spy or a pawn in someone else’s game, Ariq isn’t about to let her out of his sight until he finds out…

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 own—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 paper…
