During her ordeal with the Sect, Estelle Bailey dreamt of escaping back into the arms of the sea—and Azariah. But freedom came at a price, and though she’s back with the Sachael who’s stolen her heart, she’s also land-bound until the next full moon. And with the threat of Orontes looming ever larger behind them, Azariah, Estelle, and Michael—her once-captor turned rescuer ...more

Melody Winter is back with Sachael Desires and she has ramped up the action, the romance and twisted the plot just enough to have me glued to each page!

No matter how far you go, you can never escape your future, but your actions can help shape it. Estelle has suffered with the Sect. Now she is free, but danger still threatens to take her down, one wave at a time. Azariah may have her heart, but evil is still after her. Orontes is determined she will be his, unless she can be hidden away safely u

Cannot be read as a standalone

The story continues right where Sachael Dreams left off. Estelle, Michael, and Azariah are running and hiding from Orontes. They need to get to Saicean and find safety with the other sachaels, but Estelle needs to complete a submergence in order to be able to swim there.

Estelle's personality is a bit different from the previous book. In the first book, she was really forgiving and kind. In Sachael Desires, she is more open to death and violence.

I devoured this book just as much as I did its prequel.

The story picks up right where Sachael Dreams left us. Finally reunited, Estelle, Azariah and Michael are on the run from Orontes and The Sect, waiting for the next full moon so Estelle can finish her submergence and finally find safety in Saicean. Relationships deepen, alliances are formed, and secrets are revealed. But everyone knows the calm won't last forever...

While the first half of the book was quite slow-paced and rather cheesy, I lo

Sachael Desires picks up right where Sachael Dreams left off. Estelle, Michael, and Azariah are on the run, dodging Orontes and his men, until Estelle can complete her next submergence and head to Saicean with Azariah. While the days count down, an army of Sachaels waits in the sea, silently guarding the future of their world. And unfortunately, everything isn't all sunshine and roses for our feisty heroine. Tensions are high, people aren't who they seem, and Azariah is considerably less forthco ...more

Sachael Desires picks up exactly where we left Estelle and Azariah (and Michael) in Sachael Dreams. Melody immediately throws us into a journey of even more discoveries, secrets, and lies.

There are new characters, some who are amazing, and some who are just really nasty.

In the first book we were introduced to an entirely new species, the Sachael, and Sachael Desires build even further upon their unique mythology. We get to see Azariah’s home, Saicean, through Estelle’s eyes, and meet Azariah’s f

Picking up where Sachael Dreams left off, Sachael Desires is exactly what you hope for in a sequel, suffering none of the sophomore-book blues that plague so many other series. Everything we loved about the original is back — the setting, the characters, the romance — but paired with all the excitement of something new.

One of my favorite aspects, apart from seeing the cast again, was the attention Winter paid to the world-building. We finally get to see the mythical Saicean, but even more import

Picking up where Sachael Dreams left off, we find ourselves being quickly thrown into Estelle and Azariah’s journey. The book is as fresh and exciting as the first; you want to dive straight in as soon as you start it.

With new characters being introduced, and adventures unfolding; Sachael Desires is fulfilling to say the least. The attention to detail that is produced by Melody Winter is absolutely awe-inspiring. Her world-building is done flawlessly, and there’s so much that we learn that ans

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Review can also be found on *Milky Way of Books*

Following the events from "Sachael Dreams" Estelle, Azariah and Michael continue their escape from the Sect and its murderous leader, Orontes. As they make their way towards the land of the Sachaels, Estelle will get to learn more about the Sachaels and the Oceanids.

I liked this book much more than the first. Although there was a slow seduction in the way Estelle and Azariah mee

This is the second sequel I've read in the past few months that I loved as much as (if not more than) the first. The writing is tighter, the story more intense, and it left me wanting to know what happens next. Looking forward to the third book. :) ...more

I was given this book for an honest review but I love the series so much I bought the book also. We are back at land where Estelle, Azariah and Micheal are running for their lives from Orontes, and they really have to find somewhere to hide. Michael has gone to his mothers and that is where we find them but they cannot stay long as Orontes is on his way. They decide it's safer to travel by land and convince Michael's mother to lend them her van. She tells them to go see Melia, Michael's ex girlf ...more

A fabulous sequel to the first book in the Mine Series, Sachael Dreams, the second book Sachael Desires picks up right where we left off. We meet more characters – Lilith, Kaimi, and Chanon- learn more secrets – dude, I’m not telling!-, and get to know our favorite characters Estelle, Azariah, Michael, and Orontes better. I enjoyed this book more than the first! The characters developed nicely. The story wove a fabulous web of action and adventure as we follow Estelle’s journey to becoming who s ...more

I've known Melody for a few years now and her storytelling had always kept me entertained. I have been privileged enough to read this before it was published. I have to say it didn't disappoint.

There are plenty of new characters to meet along with the ones from the previous book. The way Melody describes the people and places is amazing, bringing them to life in vivid colour in my imagination. She's like a painter with words. They say a picture can paint a thousand words, well Melody can paint

5 Stars for Melody Winter’s Sachael Desires. This is a sequel that will not disappoint. The transition to Sachael Desires is seamless, diving back into the tension left at the end of Sachael Dreams. Estelle is safe—for now, and Orontes is determined to track her down and get vengeance. Like the first novel, the author does a fantastic job of world building. Her attention to detail and descriptive prose bring Scotland’s beautiful landscapes to life. And I found the mysterious world of the Saicean ...more

We pick up right where we left off in the previous book. You can check out my review of Sachael Dreams here which, spoiler, I enjoyed immensely!

Estelle, Azariah, and Michael are back right where we left them in the previous book. I love the surprises we learn along they way during this story. It did take me a chapter or two to get familiar with the characters again and to remember what happened in the previous book since it's been awhile since I've read it, but once I got in the rh

Oh. My. God.

I might have said this before but I am going to say it again, I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!

I absolutely can not get enough and need the next book yesterday. Sachael Desires has more action and drama and had me hooked from the very beginning, I almost didn't want it to end. It was so full of tension, I felt I was on the edge of my seat for the entire read

Melody is an absolutely talented writer which is cemented more and more each time I read her book

Estelle grew a lot in this book. I was pleased to see that, but I'm still somewhat aggravated with the men in her life. Orontes wants to rape her. Azariah doesn't tell her the whole story. Kaimi is alternately a good man and a jerk. Even Chanon behaved like a creep for a while. The only one I liked immediately was Hebrus. He wanted to do the right thing and wasn't after something from Estelle.
Seeing Azariah's world was interesting, but there are a lot of potential problems there and I'm not sur

Melody grew up in North Yorkshire, England. She's a North Yorkshire lass through and through, although she does have a tendency to holiday in Spain. She has dreams of moving to the warmer climate to sip on Sangria as the sun sets over the roof tops of surrounding buildings. But, for the moment, she still lives in North Yorkshire with her husband and two sons.
