I had just sort of lukewarm feelings with this one. I never felt totally sucked in, yet I didn’t dislike it either. The writing style is very good, and the plot of an over-the hill fisherman romancing a 600year old (!) mermaid warrior certainly unique and original. But for some reason I was just unable to totally connect to the characters, and felt that I was held at a distance for much of the action, like it was being told to me instead of me being involved. For me, the first half or so of the book read better than the second, because I felt the interpersonal connections and character development were done with more fluidity and solidarity than the latter parts, which at times I felt were glossed over or hurried. And as much as I wanted, I could never really get behind the “romance” between Trevain and Aazuria, but maybe it was just me. While this particular novel didn’t send me over the moon, I enjoyed it enough to want to read the sequel, especially because judging from the blurb for “Fathoms of Forgiveness” (Sacred Breath #2), it revolves more around Visola, who I found to be a supremely interesting character and I would definitely love to read more about her!

    This is a book I wanted to like but found that I just couldn't. The two main characters are by far the least likable, there are multiple arguments which feel very forced, and a lot of the small (but important) details force you to suspend common sense. That said, there is stuff to like and if you can overlook the things that I wasn't able to, you may find a very enjoyable story.

    Dont believe the hype!

    I was suckered in by the reviews. While well written, there were too many coincidences for my tastes. The arguments between characters seemed contrived and unbelievable. I dont like leaving a book unfinished and have read nearly 600 pages, but Im thinking of walking away from this one.
