Wrecked is #3.5 in the Iron Seas series by Meljean Brook. I’ve only read the first full length in this series and now two novellas. Strangely, I do have book 2(?) at home waiting to be read.
So. Wrecked. The Iron Seas series is sorta…Steampunk Fantasy Action Romance. Yes. That. lol! It’s a good series but due to the numerous categories it fits in, there is a lot going on – even in the novellas.
In Wrecked the hero and heroine are being chased by the heroine’s insane father. There are steamships and zombies to deal with as well. It’s a very quick but fun little adventure.
I really, really like Ms Brook’s writing in this series but goodness! She does not mind delving into the squicky. The biggest issue I had with the plot of Wrecked is that the heroine is running from her father because he wants to make her over into his [deceased] wife (her mother). That is just…so many different levels of gross I don’t know what to say. I eventually did a bit of skimming to get to the ending because of that.
As I read more of this series, it makes me glad I didn’t give up completely after reading The Iron Duke. I do think I’m working my way up to reading that full length I have at home. 😉
