Recommends it for: mermaid fans, fantasy readers
This reader looked forward to taking a break and plunging into author Ashley Knight's Fathom , or Book II of the Fins Trilogy, as it's also known. I bought this as an Amazon Kindle edition, as I wanted to keep it with my copy of Ms. Knight's debut novel Fins , the first book of this trilogy.

Admittedly, this genre is not my regular choice for leisure reading, but there had been something compelling about the story of Morgan and Thayde, which had begun on Central Florida's Treasure Coast in the

Fathom puts a darker, edgier twist on Ashley Knight’s mermaid “tails” that began with the magical Fins. As the story unfolds, Morgan and her merman fiancé Thayde are living in New York City about to start college. But there’s trouble brewing. Morgan’s powers appear to be taking a dark turn, and Thayde is succumbing to an illness that only one person will be able to reverse. That person just happens to be Limus, Morgan and Thayde’s sworn enemy.

Unlike Fins, the characters have definitely grown up
Randi (The Artist Formerly known as Guitar Chick)
A darker twist to a series. Ashley successfully twists Fathom into a more serious game.
There is still that kind of cheesy romance, but it is also still the good kind of cheesy. Still pretty clean, still very innocent.
The mer-powers keep getting cooler, the lake monster was awesome (can we keep it?!), and I enjoyed the religion used with the book (I myself am a Christian so I had no problem with it).
The next installment, Forever, is on the to-read list for sure.

In Fathom, Ashley Knight’s sequel to her debut novel Fins, Morgan and Thayde are attempting to lead as normal of a life as possible. However, dark forces are determined to destroy Morgan before she has begun her predestined role as “The Link” for her kind.

As the novel unfolds, the reader discovers the journey Morgan must take. She is forced by powers beyond her control to push to her physical, psychological, and spiritual strength to their limits, and sometimes beyond. In doing this, Fathom addr
While it's been a while since I'd read Fins, I didn't find myself feeling too lost with book two. Like with book one, I really enjoyed this, only wished it were longer! I was happy to see quite a bit of Naira, and loved her interactions with Morgan. Morgan and Thayde progressed nicely as a couple, and though I was surprised at what happened before he left, I was happy that in the end, they did it again with everyone around. It was interesting to see what happened between Morgan and Thayde with t ...more

Book Review- Fathom by Ashley L. Knight

Morgan is having horrible nightmares since the Blessing. She keeps seeing Thayde dying. She doesn’t want to let him out of her sight. Yet she is feeling strange. Her anger is taking over. She is overwhelmed with being the Link. She feels like two people are inhabiting her body. After almost losing Thayde her body shuts down. She is being sent someone that will help her learn her powers.
Tammer and Thayde have a mission of their own. They have to find Limus.

Well, the first half of the book was a solid 4 to me... and the 2nd half was a solid 2.. so I averaged it out to be a 3... but I would probably give it a 2.5, if I could.

What started off well, sort of became all discombobulated and uneven.

If I'm to be completely honest, I was also slightly disturbed by a very weird, out of context, heavily religious slant that covered about 2.5 to 3 pages toward the end. It's not that I'm anti-religion.. it simply just didn't fit in. Don't get me wrong, this isn

Meh. It was ok. Not as good as the first. A bit too... lovey-dovy for me. She also stole a famous line from The Hunger Games. ("Stay with me?" "Always.")
