BOOK OF THE DAY: Fathoms of Forgiveness (Sacred Breath Series) by Nadia Scrieva

There is no divorce in the undersea kingdom of Adlivun. Marriage is a bond that lasts until death--even if death comes in several centuries, and in that time your spouse happens to become your sworn enemy. This is the conflict that General Visola Ramaris faces when she learns that the mighty Vachlan is behind the attacks on her kingdom. She has sworn to protect Adlivun with her life, but long ago, she also swore to love and honor her husband...

Visola must choose whether she will destroy Vachlan once and for all, or attempt the hardest thing conceivable: communication. After two hundred years of desertion, she has no faith in their feeble bond and knows she can never forgive him. When he threatens the person dearest to her, she must take action. Confronting Vachlan on enemy territory would be nothing short of suicide. She knows that if she falls into his custody, the deranged man would relish breaking her down and making her lose her own sanity. 

Princess Aazuria forbids Visola from taking matters into her own hands. She will do anything it takes to protect her friend from the man who wants to crush her. Alas, Visola is a crazy, uncontrollable warrior woman with the blood of Vikings in her veins. Why would she ever consider doing the safe and predictable thing?


Nadia Scrieva lives in Toronto, Canada with no husband, no kids, and no pets. She does own a very attractive houseplant which she occasionally remembers to water between her all-consuming writing marathons.

5.0 out of 5 stars I found love in this book. March 19, 2012

and you will too! The core of this book is the story of Visola, whom one cannot help but admire after understanding what she has gone through and how far she is willing to go in life for sake of her honor. There are so many 'heights' to this book that embody the build-up of admiration and sympathy for the characters. As one could expect in a book that is so strongly about Visola, there are so many funny parts to the book.

There are some dark parts to this story that add to the magnitude of it. The author has a great talent for giving you a reason to hate the bad guys.
In a corner of my mind I realize that this story shows us the potential of all of the characters. If Visola's story can be so compelling, I am excited to learn more about the other characters. I cannot say enough how much I loved her story and I am eager to share it with my fiance and my friends!

5.0 out of 5 stars Visola is incredible! March 25, 2012

Halfway through this story, there was a moment where I realized that I had fallen in love with Visola. You get to see her lowest moments, but her lowest moments are also her highest moments. I don't know how to explain this other than to encourage you to read it for yourself. Visola is a real woman. She is amazingly strong and sensitive at the same time. I was happy to spend my Saturday afternoon reading about a noble warrior instead of reading about your average boring housewife!
