In the Dark of Dreams by Marjorie M. Liu

She could never forget the boy with the ice blue eyes...
She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business - a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown...and the incredible.
And now he has found her again, her boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human, leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.
But with their reunion comes danger. For Perrin and Jenny-and all living creatures-their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea...and in the power of their dreams.
childhood sweethearts, childhood love, love them. maybe because it shows a strong love that never goes away despite the odds, despite the circumstances, despite the problems. this is the romantic in me speaking. and this story especially was so tragic, i really felt for Perrin here especially but not only him, even the other characters as well. they all have their own troubles. if what had happened to them happened to me in reality, i don't think i'd have been able to survive at all.
before this i read another book by the same author, 'the red heart of jade' where our characters were childhood sweethearts as well. that's another good book with action, mystery and romance, just like this one. they're called a dirk and steele romance. seems like marjorie m. liu is also another one of my favourites now. what's also unique is that she has some asian aspects in her stories which makes me feel close, possibly because i'm asian hehe. parts of the story really made me sad and i really felt for the characters which is really well done by the author, to be able to invoke feelings in the reader is no easy feat. well hope you enjoy this.
