My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
Estelle Bailey has had enough of busy city-life and her hot-tempered ex.
She escapes to the seclusion and peace of her family’s clifftop home in
Ravenscar, where the soothing solitude whispers to her soul as strongly
as the sea itself does. But her newfound contentment is interrupted
when a mysterious man—a Sachael, master of seduction—joins her midnight
Estelle struggles against his charm and the
overpowering attraction she feels for him. He offers her a life she
never could have imagined, a life beneath the waves . . . but at what
cost? Before she can decide, she’s captured, ensnared by the Sect, a
secret enemy of the Sachaels, becoming a pawn in a war she knew nothing
Now, she’s left with a new choice—escape the clutches of
the Sect and flee into the ocean, or side with her alluring,
intimidating captor and destroy the Sachaels forever. Can she turn her
back on the man she might love, or will the secret of her heritage
Set against a picturesque backdrop, Sachael
Dreams is the first in a new series, exploring themes of romance, love,
and identity, and the struggle that happens when all three collide.

I recieved and eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review!
Sachael Dreams is a story about...mermaids. Well, mermen to be precise :)
Estelle lives on Ravenscar an almost isolate place, save for the small village and the center where her mother lives, after the death of Estelle's father. When one night, under the full moon, she meets a mysterious man, who is much more than she believes, then an adventure begins.
I have read many books about mermaids. Some were good other seemed a little more like a bad copy of Ariel. But on this novel, we have imagination, livid descriptions and a heroine who despite the odds, she becomes strong enough to fight for her life. Despite also the number of men in this book, there is no love triangle/square and any geometrical size of sorts (which was my main fear).
Azariah is quite interesting, since he defies everything his kind does in order to be with Estelle and Ontores? I would love that guys face plastered in the sand. ;) The book left many open sides, which I would love to see on the next book and I am sure Melody will live up to her reputation to do that!
