Overview

An underwater kingdom. A missing queen. A modern man plunged into an ancient war...

Trevain Murphy's new wife has been forcibly taken. He must do all he can to search for her without falling apart. His love was the noble Queen Aazuria, ruler of Adlivun, and he has been burdened with all of her responsibilities. The Alaskan man is unable to cope with the political unrest of his new nation, and turns to his wife's younger sister for help. Princess Elandria is expected to assume important administrative duties, but she is overwhelmed with depression and completely useless to her endangered people.

With Adlivun facing a growing threat from the foreign submarine superpower known as the Clan of Zalcan, headstrong General Visola Ramaris becomes focused on seeking advanced military protection. Going against the ancient mermaid tradition to remain hidden from land-dwelling societies, Visola decides to reveal herself to the American public and make an eloquent appeal for assistance. But nothing comes for free. The countries of the Pacific Rim invite Adlivun's diplomats to an APEC conference to present their conditions. The price for survival is outrageous and unexpected; if Trevain agrees, the small marine kingdom will play a crucial role in changing the infrastructure and economy of the world forever. But will the proud citizens of Adlivun sacrifice their freedom and dignity for security?

Meanwhile, on a dark and desolate continent, a displaced queen has been captured and imprisoned by enemy forces. Her only concern is concealing the child she is carrying from her deranged captor. Thousands of miles from any sign of humanity, Aazuria must battle the coldest temperatures on earth in order to find her way back to her husband--but even if she lives, will she be in time to save her beloved Adlivun from itself?

    The series only gets more interesting!

    Okay, I really need more stars. The series is only getting more intricate and fascinating; the author does not disappoint. If you haven't read books one and two, get cracking, because this book was so so good! The prospect of building a bridge, in exchange for protection is a clever and interesting one; and the implications are far grander than I had even considered. Our favorite characters are all tested in their own ways over the loss of the Queen. We are introduced into some cute sea creatures and I will always enjoy that. The author does not spare our feelings in this novel; you're going to be sad -- you've been warned.

    I find that third novels in series's are always really good, and this one does not disappoint. I have to mention the Prisoner of Azkaban here. It's probably my favorite of the Potter novels. I just love how it brings together Harry's past and Harry's future. Well, back to the Sacred Breath series, this bridge thing gives vast new possibilities for the future of Adlivun, that I cannot wait to explore and this simply was a perfect read for where we are at in the story here.

    Don't ask me to choose between book two and three! Book two is my baby and I love, love, love Viso, but what was nice about book three compared to book two is that we pull out from the story of mainly V Squared to view everybody's individual stories and Adlivun's story in this one. I definitely enjoyed Boundless Sea at least as much as Fathoms of Forgiveness; I'm not ready to say more, only because I loved FoF SO much!

    Boundless Sea, book three of the Sacred Breath Series by Nadia Scrieva, starts us off on a sad note. The pregnant queen and her sister are still missing and the kingdom of Adlivun is in turmoil. The world has been made aware of the existence of the undersea kingdom and Adlivun is willing to co-operate with the government, hoping for some help in fighting a common enemy, the Clan of Zalcan. General Visola is fiercely using all her power, wit, and manipulative skills to get her way and, with the help of her husband, to protect her dear ones. Trevain is devastated by the fact that his wife is missing and Elandria has became even more timid and withdrawn. Queen Aazuria on the other hand, is still being held by Prince Zalcan Hamnil; and she will need all her will and strength if she is ever going to survive and go back to her people.

    Once again, Nadia Scrieva delivered an amazing story and then some. The story gets more intense and more engaging with every new book that is published. Boundless Sea has showcased all the main characters more by showing the personality of each as they face excruciatingly trying times. The story still takes us through the beautiful, breathtaking underworld, but it is marred by several sad moments. Not that there is anything wrong with that; it only highlights Nadia's writing skill more by the way she manages to blend these sad moments in the story and still put a smile on your face. I totally loved the first two books, but book three made me add Nadia Scrieva to my list of favorite authors. The series is addictive and I am immediately grabbing book 4 after this.

    Boundless Sea (Sacred Breath, Book 3) by Nadia Scrieva is the third in the series of Sacred Breath. Trevain Murphy is not equipped to face the political unrest looming large over his wife Queen Aazuria's kingdom, Adlivun. The Queen is taken away and he is unable to cope on his own. He turns to Princess Elandria, his wife's younger sister, for help. The Princess is actually not fit for the post, due to her personal problems. The greatest threat the kingdom faces is from a foreign submarine superpower, the Clan of Zalcan. Visola Ramaris, General of the clan goes against the tradition of remaining hidden and reveals herself to the Americans and appeals for help. In the meantime, the captured Queen is struggling with the living conditions in a lonely place and she wants to find a way to get back to her husband. Will she be able to reach Adlivun in time to save her Kingdom? Before that, will she be able to save herself from the enemies holding her captive?

    The story has many sub-plots which have been woven with expertise into the main story. The most important characters are Aazuria Vellamo, Trevain Murphy, Visola Ramaris, Vachlan Suchos, Elandria Vellamo, Sionna Ramaris and Prince Zalcan Hamnil. These characters have been powerfully developed as they play the most important part in the book. Like any fantasy novel, this book is also filled with adventure, intrigue, suspense, kingdoms, princes, and princesses. The book evokes a lot of emotions in readers with its twists and turns. The story has a little bit of everything that makes it a compelling story.

    Right from the very beginning, this instalment in the Sacred Bre

    Right from the very beginning, this instalment in the Sacred Breaths series is much more emotionally charged than the rest.  At the same time, it is just as exciting and fast paced as the rest of the series.  Scrieva balances both aspects very neatly to create an unfathomable whole.  Scrieva’s breathtaking descriptions allow you a very vivid look into this deeply touching world.  This goes all the way down to the heartbreaking ending that leaves you bereft and in need of more, because you know that this can’t possibly be the way it ends.

    I love how Scrieva allows her characters’ humanity to shine through, even in the most intense moments.  Those glints of feeling and emotion really serve to highlight the events in question.  She also takes female empowerment to a whole new level.  Rather than developing a blatantly matriarchal society or spouting feministic comments she takes a cast of female characters who end up in roles of leadership solely by the accident of birth or circumstances, but they are also females who excel at those roles.  That isn’t to say that her male characters are weak.  There are actually quite a few alpha males in this novel, but the females easily stand their own and succeed among them.  

    I keep falling more and more in love with this series with each instalment.  This is definitely a must read for all those who enjoy the paranormal and all things aquatic.   

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    This was such an intense and amazing story. The second half left me with tears in my eyes, but it was so beautiful. I can't wait to read more by this author! So glad there are more books in the series!
