Riveted is part of Brook's Iron Seas series (the third book, in fact) that is known for its fantasy, its scorching heat and its steampunk adventure. You have a timid heroine who is looking for her sister, a man made of metal and nano agents, an Icelandic setting and two people who don't fit anywhere but fit together. How can you ask for a better plot?

Brook is a good author. I say that because The Iron Duke blew rival urban steampunk romances out of the water with its action adventure and hot relationship. One would think that would make a good formula for the next novel, but no, Brook then writes a completely different hero/heroine and creates an even more chemically explosive couple than ever before. Each of her books are unique and yet compatible. If you love steampunk (real steampunk, not just clockwork everywhere) and, of course, true love, then pick up Riveted.

First let me say that I really, really enjoyed the first two books in this series. However, I really couldn't stand this book and I tried more than once. I love the world building in the Iron Seas series but the story and the characters in this book were just BORING!

Maybe the problem was that the author was trying to make a moral point in this book. I least I thinks she was. I'm still a little unclear on what it was though. If the moral was just that people have the right to love whoever they want and should have the freedom to do that I'm good with that but that wasn't what I took from this book. In this book her characters live in a secret society of lesbians and what to keep this a secret at all costs (and when I say all costs that means if you have to kill someone to keep your secret that's okay). The problem is I'm not sure why it was such a big deal to keep it a secret. There was only one character who had a problem with lesbians and even then it was just a verbal tirade. I never believed or saw any evidence that the villagers would be in danger if their way of life became known. So I had a hard time buying into the protect the village at all costs. On top of that, apparently it's only there village that needs to be protected since the heroines sister let another village of lesbians be killed in order to protect her own village without even trying to warn them, protect them or stop the villain.

The villain was one dimensional and well also boring. In fact I would say that the real villain was the heroine's sister who felt no guilt or shame about letting an entire village of innocent women be killed.

The romance was also boring. It had no heat or really anything interesting. None of the drama or fun of the first two books.

I regret to say that Riveted is not The Iron Duke. Not that it was a bad book but I think enjoyment of it depends on your interest and point of view. The Iron Duke had a great deal of action and adventure and some romance. Riveted had a great deal of romance and some action and adventure.

Not that Ms. Brook is a bad writer. To the contrary, not only does she avoid my pet peeves, bad spelling, bad writing and sloppy plotting but she is more than competent at developing character, moving the plot and just writing well. No complaints on any of that, in fact, well done.

But I am not a fan of romance. The sex was interesting but not overpowering. I will note it was more graphic in this book and perhaps a bit more frequent but I did not count. But the fact remains that all the real action occurs in the final quarter of the book.

I will not gripe about it though. If romance is more to your taste then you will find the book very good indeed. If not, read The Iron Duke or Heart of Steel. I think you will find them more to your liking. And I will be looking for her next Iron Seas novel, she is a writer worth reading.

This is perhaps the best book so far in the "Iron Seas" series. This story has humor, love, pirates, monsters, trolls, good guys, bad guys, scary guys and poor sots stuck in the middle! The main characters, Annika and David are quirky and kind, lovable and awkward, and both are very resilient, though they may not see themselves this way. I will caution you that the story starts a bit slowly, but that's because these characters are so rich and I think the author HAD to spend the time so that we could clearly see where these two are coming from, and where they think they are going. Annika thinks that she is going to keep sailing the seas and putting her life on hold until she can find her sister, and David thinks that he is going to fulfill a promise to his mother and go on a volcanic expedition in Iceland. After a fashion they may accomplish their goals, but its what happens to them on the way that makes this a wonderful love story first and foremost, and an excellent steam-punk adventure.

One reviewer complained about the subplots with same-sex love story(ies), saying that she just wants a nice boy-meets-girl story. Rest assured, at the heart of this story that's just what it is. Having said that, Annika comes from a culture of all women. I couldn't help thinking of the Amazons. If "Wonder Woman" were written today, what would we be thinking of the women on HER island? I think that the situation in Hannasvik is a reasonable one to draw given the premise of an all female culture, and Annika loves her mother and her sisters, and so it naturally flows that she would want those people she brings into her life to accept them.

All of the characters were very human. To her credit, even her bad guys had reasons for doing what they did and you could see where they were coming from.

This was a lovely, fun and exciting read.
