book synopsis

A routine dive takes a drastic turn for marine biologist Tess Hoffman and her boyfriend, when a monstrous underwater creature of unknown origin attacks them.

As they attempt study this dangerous deep-sea denizen, they team up with a ragtag crew of scientists and explorers, including Culley - a hero in disguise - and George, a brilliant scientist.

My thoughts

rating: 5 stars

If you love sea monsters , and those old black and white movies where you have them vs man then you might want to check this out, there's even a touch of romance in it , as well as a touch of lgbtq , and while there is a few gruesome sences in the book , there isn't a hole lot, in fact  this book wasn't even scary to begin with , its more along the lines of SCI Fi then any thing, with characters that you will love like Culley  , who is my all time favorite character of the book . So what more can you want , sea monsters, romance, underwater sences , then you might want to pick this one up like I did .

Kraken
Kraken - M. Caspian

I am not even sure what to say about this one. What a clusterfuck.

 

No issue from me for non-con or tentacle sex. I mean it can be done and can be done well *coughs Nicholas Bella*. Was this to be erotic in any way...it was not. As my BR indicated, this was old man rape creep. We cringed most of the read.

 

The story was creepy and yet intriguing until about 70% and this felt like a good ole horror story. Then around 70% this took a turn for the the crazy...nothing making sense and storyline components dropping off and coming up that just were out of left field.

Kraken - M. Caspian

“I’m going to fill you now. All the way. I'm going to pod you, Will, and place my seed in you. It will bond us together. The seed and my scent. Once you have it, you're going to crave it -to need it. Need me. Inside you. Constantly. There won't be any leaving."

Cutest tentacle porn ever
Wriggle & Sparkle: The Collected Tales of a Kraken and a Unicorn - Megan Derr

Not my favourite Megan Derr and I'm struggling to put my finger on why. 

The characters are great. Sarcastic, funny, snippy. Anderson especially is so against 'type' as unicorns are expected to be. I loved their banter and the way this didn't stop as the romance progressed. The concept of the story really appealed to me as well. And as usual the writing is excellent. It's gender/sexuality positive across the board, with a genderfluid (quite literally) kraken and a (formerly promiscuous) bi(pan?)sexual unicorn.

So why didn't it completely work for me? I don't know. Lynn had a habit of slipping between genders and as he always kept the same pronoun, I wasn't always aware of this until breasts or clothes were mentioned. This didn't help with my visualisation of the scene.

The greater problem was the format of the book. It was a collection of shorter stories taken over the first few years of their relationship. This gave the book a disjointed feel and I never really connected with the relationship. I also felt Lynn's character shifted in the last part of the book and I couldn't quite reconcile this wedding obsessed person with the foul mouthed kraken we encountered at the beginning of the book. I actually preferred the first 75% of the book. Once the wedding became the main focus I more or less lost interested.

Great characters, an interesting idea, and the cutest tentacle porn ever.
