First in an all-new series where seductive danger and steampunk adventure abound in the gritty world of the Iron Seas. After the Iron Duke freed England from Horde control, he instantly became a national hero. Now Rhys Trahaearn has built a merchant empire on the power-and fear-of his name. And when a dead body is dropped from an airship onto his doorstep, bringing Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth into his dangerous world, he intends to make her his next possession.
But when Mina uncovers the victim's identity, she stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens the lives of everyone in England. To save them, Mina and Rhys must race across zombie-infested wastelands and treacherous oceans-and Mina discovers the danger is not only to her countrymen, as she finds herself tempted to give up everything to the Iron Duke.
Rhys Is the Iron Duke, He defeated the evil Horde and is now a hero to all of England. Detective Willamina (Mina) Wentworth is called to his home one night to investigate a body that was dropped on Rhys' front porch. She meets the handsome, stubborn, strong willed Rhys and instantly pulls away and tries to keeps her distance to protect herself while he tries everything he has to possess her. This is the second steampunk book series that I have read and I was very happy with it. When I first heard of steampunk I didn't think I would like it at all and I'm happy that I gave it a chance because I fell in love with the genre. The world that Meljean Brook created is completely believable and I had no problem imagining myself walking down the streets. The story was full of adventure, steamy romance and Paranormal elements. The only thing Im sad about is that the next Iron Sea's story wont continue Mina and Rhys story cause I want to read about them more.
I gave it 4/5 Stars
