Review - The Krie Seekers (City Steam#2) by A.L. Davroe @aldavroe

The Krie Seekers
City Steam #2
by A.L. Davroe

Goodreads blurb:  As the citizens in the Windward Empire’s capital city of Dormorn sleep, two lawmen recruit a pair of Seeker sisters to assist in a hunt for the blood-thirsty Krie that have been terrorizing the city.

This story is a "vignette" in a serialized collection.


About the Author:  I write both YA and adult speculative fiction. I'm represented by Louise Fury of the L. Perkins Literary Agency. My debut YA paranormal romance novel, FOR YOUR HEART, comes out Fall 2013.

By day, I live in Connecticut my two feline hench-creatures. I'm a terrible blusher, have a weak spot for cuddly animals, love Laffy Taffy and Cadbury MiniEggs, and I'm a huge advocate of alternative healing methods. I also wear Vibram five-finger toe shoes and corsets...Though not always in the same ensemble. I'm a Capricorn, a Hufflepuff, and a few nuggets short of a Happy Meal. I also suffer from Resting B****face Syndrome (RBS), so even though I might look like I'll tie you in a knot if you come near me, I'm more afraid of you than you are of me (see blushing problem above).

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it!!
Okay, I bought this book back in June, and I decided to read it now because it is currently free.  I like to help people find good books to read, and it is always a bonus if it happens to save them money on occasion.

The cover is the same as book 1 except with the new title.  I’m guessing it is because these are all part of the same collection,  but I am not sure.  I’m still wondering who the boy on the cover is though.

I liked this story a lot, and it is much better than book 1 because it is a longer story and not quite as dark as book 1.  Again, I’m amazed at how beautifully A.L. writes.  You feel like you are right there and can smell and hear all the same things as the characters.  I like being pulled into books.  I love visiting new places and seeing all the cool things that are in an author’s head.

I really like Tatty in this book because she has a strength that she won’t let anything take from her, and she has a caring heart.  In this story, you learn about what the Krie and the Seekers are and their circle of life so to speak.  It is a little morbid, but a great story.  I’m not sure how authors come up with their ideas for stories, but it amazes me all the time.

Skell is like a wild animal and going on instinct alone.  With Killian, I’m not sure what to think about him other than he is sort of a romantic which is kinda sweet.  All of the characters personalities are very well written by A.L.  I don’t want to say anymore about the story because I don’t want to give anything away. 

This is definitely a story you should try especially since it is free on Amazon right now for the next couple days.  You can read this one without having read book 1.  If you want to see my review of book 1, it is here.

Interested in reading??

(Note: not sure if it is free on the UK site)
