Overview

It is a universal fact that humans are unfaithful. Penalties for this are usually unimpressive, but when a betrayed woman happens to be a goddess, consequences might be a little different...

Pax Burnson is the descendant of devas. She has vowed to live her life without practicing her powers, but recent events have overturned her entire existence. Thorn Kalgren has been the love of her life since she was fourteen - he helped her to heal after the loss of her parents. As a close family friend, he is one of a select few who understand and share her unique heritage. Over the years, he became her everything. Pax is now 26, and his betrayal has released a violence within her that she cannot restrain.

While her first instinct is to escape and forget, her aimless road trip is interrupted by a childhood friend in need. An idea strikes Pax as she sees her own pain reflected in Thorn's sister, Amara Kalgren. She is suddenly filled with a new, all-consuming purpose: vengeance. She believes there is nothing else left.

Using ancient magick and enlisting Amara's help, Pax orchestrates a complex, drawn-out plan to deceive and emotionally destroy her former lover. The friendship and loyalty between the two girls becomes fortified and unshakable as they venture down a dark and twisted path together, encountering formidable roadblocks and demons.

It soon becomes clear to Pax that everything she has been led to believe about her powers and her past was shaped by blatant lies. When she discovers that Thorn's infidelity is closely linked with her mother's death, she is forced to make a life-altering decision...

    Nadia did it again!

    You won't be disappointed! Although I am waiting for another Mermaid novel. For some reason this book was harder to get deep into right away. However I think it was what was happening on my home ftont. I started reading novels when I was 12. Ellery Queen, etc....When my Mother finished I would grab them. I am almost 60 now and have read all types of books. For the pasr 9-10 years I have almost exclusively read sci-fi & fantasy. I am so thrilled with Nadia she writes characters with depth and flaws. These are characters we can relate to & love & want to choke out at the same time. I have always loved books that have strong female lead characters. I will read everything she has available on my nook and then do some research to make sure I haven't missed anything. Keep writing Nadia. I will keep buying them. I will spread the word. Thank you for a job well done!

    Hotter than Sacred Breath series!

    There's no way I could possibly do this novel justice. Fire is an accurate element to be associated with this book. The girls have gone through so much that they have to deal with the raw emotion of it all and they can be angry, vengeful, and seductive. The action is quite consistent; and like Drowning Mermaids there's a lot of secrets sure to cause drama down the road.

    As with her other novels (the Sacred Breath series), the author is sublime at articulating relate-able feelings underneath all of the energy, telekinesis, spells, all of that. The author does not hold back the betrayal fury -- and I love that! Too often reactions to betrayal are helplessness, it's nice to have some anger. I really enjoyed the relate-ability of the relationships. You have the relationship between the girls, the relationship between the guys, and the familial relationship between them all that each have their own redeeming and not-so redeeming qualities that underlay every action.

    Whenever the girls merge, you're on the edge of your seat waiting to find out what they're going to do in this thirty minutes and if they will get out of there in time! As always, the author paints out vivid scenes that immerse you for hours.

    Ugh

    The mermaid series was pretty good but on page 260 or so this book just gets worse and worse...weak characters...no plot in sight and worst of all....women who are none too bright. Impossible to read further

    If you can stomach the thought of a 28 year old man passionately kissing a 14 year old girl, you might like this book.
    If you can stomach the idea of women standing by men who have seriously screwed up by cheating and lying, then this book is for you.
    I won't be paying for the next book.

    "impressive Read"
    An impressive book with a decent plot, strong background and organization. I enjoyed reading this book till the end, the story is so engaging. It just left me speechless through its romance and vivid plots. 

    Paramount is a lovely creation by Nadia Scrieva. So many twists are there in the story! I was so excited while reading through its suspense. Such a nice fantasy romance book which ended on a cliffhanger, wanna read the next verse sooner.

    Really Good Read

    I had mixed feelings with this book. I read the reviews before I read it, and yes, this book is creepy at times when you logically think about certain situations, but it more so just had some wierd elements. At times I couldn't wait to see what would happen next, and at others, mostly one of those wierd situations that I just don't agree with / can't really get into, I wanted to stop reading. But I continued and finished it. And it was amazing. I can't wait to see what happens next. The two leading ladies in this book are on a jpurney that has so many hardships and mistakes that it almost breaks your heart. And the story line has so much going on, the plot just continues to thicken. I hate spoilers, so I won't give aa synopsis, but I would highly recommed this book. But only to those who are open minded, and definitely not the faint of heart.
