“…by the end of this book I was ready to jump his tentacles. ”
~ Under the Covers

Larkin has been looking for her brother for a year. Last she and her father had heard he had been taken and possibly killed by sea monsters. As part of being a ranger is to protect people from dangerous animals, she is supposed to hunt them down and hopefully find answers. However, what she finds isn’t a sea monster, but an intelligent and powerful humanoid. And a being she can’t help but feel admiration and attraction.

When I read Treasure of the Abyss the first book in The Kraken series…I wasn’t Dracchus’ biggest fan. He seemed to come across as a big old bully. Oh but what a difference a book makes! By the end of Jewel of the Sea I was couldn’t wait to read more about him.  And, by the end of this book I was ready to jump his tentacles. Roberts transformed Dracchus from an overbearing and aggressive leader to someone you would willingly follow and fall in love with. His interactions with the other couples especially their kids, who all adore him, will melt your heart.

Larkin is the sister of Randall who appeared in Jewel of the Sea, like Randall she is a ranger. She has spent the last year looking for him and for the kraken who took him. I really liked Larkin, she was a powerful hunter something Dracchus was drawn towards. Together they made a great couple, they seemed to have instant chemistry that developed into respect and love as the book went on.

I hope Roberts writes more in this series, it definitely has the potential. I know they started off thinking this would be a standalone, but it has evolved into a fantastic series. I could happily read about more kraken-human pairings!
