Inside each of us is the ongoing struggle to do the right thing. It's your common battle of good vs. evil and it fascinates me. This is a common theme you'll see within my writing even as you embark on a thrilling adventure of epic scale. In this blog you'll see glimpses of who I am, snippets of my writing, and my often quirky sense of humor. I hope you like what you see. I hope you'll join my R'my. Let's enjoy this adventure together.
Ra-ra-ri, I made it to Z!!!! *Cue balloons, confetti, and celebratory trumpets*
It's been a long month. If you've stuck with me through the entire A to Z Challenge, then you deserve a wild round of applause.
To celebrate the letter Z, I'm sharing a character from one of my very favorite steam punk novels.
Z is for Zenobia Fox
from The Kraken King(The Iron Seas #4) by Meljean Brooks
Zenobia is one of my very favorite characters because she's a writer who writes exciting stories based on the exciting adventures of her brother, the legendary Archimedes Fox, but longs for a real life adventure of her own. In The Kraken King, she gets exactly what she's longed for plus much more.
I like Zenobia because she is funny, strong, brave, and lands the handsome Kraken King without the benefit of a beautiful face and body. She's a-typical, which makes me lover her all the more.
Here is the official blurb about the book courtesy of Goodreads:
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.
Have you read Zenobia's story? If not, I'd encourage you to start at the beginning of the series. It makes this book that much more satisfying when you finally get to Zenobia's story.
