Book Description:
Surviving on the treacherous Iron Seas requires a heart of steel…but how can Yasmeen hope to survive when her heart has already been stolen by Archimedes Fox…?

Tethered along the south dock of Port Fallow, Captain Yasmeen Corsair’s magnificent new airship, Lady Nergüi, awaits its departure with adventurer and treasure-hunter Archimedes Fox. But this time, Yasmeen, a fearless mercenary who has always prided herself on a heart of steel, has reasons to worry when Miles Bilson, an acquaintance from Archimedes’ earlier smuggling days, sends an urgent message requesting help.

With a past marked by betrayal, Archimedes wonders what his former partner could want—other than revenge. Yasmeen fears that Bilson could threaten everything Archimedes holds dear. Though both Archimedes and Yasmeen love the exhilaration of veering wildly off course, neither is prepared for where there newest risk will take them…or what it might cost them.

My Thoughts on the Book
I love Brook's Iron Seas series and some of the best characters are Árchemiedes and Yasmeen. They re funny together and yet steamy as well. I love how Brook made their relationship one of total trust. Yasmeen is the Captain and desires to always seem in control and ruthless but she has a deep love for Archemiedes which makes her vulnerable at yet she doesn't seem to mind.

Both Archemiedes and Yasmeen love adventure and appreciate the others abilities and station in the air ship. I think these two are my favorite characters of the entire series and definitely want to read more of their adventures.
