The Kraken King (The Iron Seas)
I don't know anything about this series (4th book in the Iron Seas series), but it sounds interesting for any lover of steampunk. It is available today. The author is Meljean Brook and the publisher is Berkley Trade.
After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity. While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own--besides the stories she writes.
But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper...
