This is what people in the old days must have felt while reading serials in the papers.
Mind you, this isn't the first serial I've followed, but it's doubtlessly the most exciting of them all to date!
Zenobia is still determined to get her friend Helene to her husband as soon as possible, so they must accompany Ariq, the Kraken King, in his search for marauders, which will bring them to a vehicle which can bear them to the Red City.
But, as we've come to expect, it's not an easygoing journey. Boilerworms, dreadful creatures reminiscent of the worms from the movie Tremors, are out to get them, which is every bit as exciting as Ariq's flirtatious conversations with Zenobia.
And, of course, this wouldn't be a Meljean Brook book without being peppered by amazing bits of brilliance:
"Refusing to take advantage of a woman should be a basic part of any man’s character, and lauding him for it would be like commending someone for having lungs to breathe with."
