Blurb: To buck the brutal rule of the Republic, Amirzade Sharouk and his men pull off a desperate plan: Destroying the Republic’s fleet by joining forces with the legendary sea folk, masters of the leviathans, immense living weapons born of the sea and magic.
Though the gamble succeeds, one of the leviathans vanishes with a valuable human, straining an already tenuous alliance. Her caretaker Nils needs to find her as quickly as possible to redeem himself before his superiors. His search is further burdened by Dastyaf, a furious human warlord and liability in the marine realm. But after combing the deep ocean and discovering the dangers it holds, Nils realizes he may need the human more than he thought, to save his mission and himself.
No Ocean Too Deep contains some explicit content.
Review: A wonderful tale about a prince who deceives the republic to free the desert dwellers once and for all. Dastyaf is a human warlord, personal protector of Amirzade Sharouk, the prince, and is tasked to work Nills to get the prince back from a powerful leviathan.
Dastyaf’s takes merman form to be able to track down the Leviathan and struggles to adapt to the new form. Nills and Dastyaf work together to find the creature and get the prince back.
Such an amazing journey for these two men who have to learn to tolerate each other at first then as the mystery of why the creature took the prince and the ongoing tracking they grow closer. The environment under the sea had an almost mystical quality to it and held me spellbound in its details.
I loved the entire book from start to finish.
