    Well the first thing I should say about this final part is to remind readers since I had to remind myself that this is a romance at the heart of this story and not a blood soaked tale of revenge which is exactly what I wanted after Part 7 but it seems Ms Brook wanted to complete her story as it should be in spite of my desire for revenge.Everything is coming to a head, the Nippon forces are all around Krakentown, the evil Ghazan Bator has moved into his town and the future looks dim for any Well the first thing I should say about this final part is to remind readers since I had to remind myself that this is a romance at the heart of this story and not a blood soaked tale of revenge which is exactly what I wanted after Part 7 but it seems Ms Brook wanted to complete her story as it should be in spite of my desire for revenge.Everything is coming to a head, the Nippon forces are all around Krakentown, the evil Ghazan Bator has moved into his town and the future looks dim for any peace loving people.The solution to this mess is neither easy nor is it without a bit of bloodshed but it is VERY creative and allows the story to continue to revolve around the romance which is what this story has always been about and the ending is very satisfying for everyone except my personal revenge junkie but even he is grudgingly happy with the story.I feel there arestories coming out of this world that I hope will be this good but to be honest I have a hard time imagining aglorious adventure than this one and the height of the romance is something out of a Hollywood epic Well done indeed Ms Brook The title for this part was spot on, Greatest Adventure exactly

    I read this and the previous one back to back and can I say Bloody Brilliant I adore Meljean s steampunk series but this one blows them out of the water The best read this year and in my top 20 books ever This is a must read No one can put emotion, intelligence and action into a story like Meljean.
