Bride of the Water God Volume 14 by Mi-Kyung Yun

Book 10: Bride of the Water God Volume 14 by Mi-Kyung Yun

A goddess manipulates Soah to ask Mui to give up his godhood to prove his love for her, to exact revenge for the death of Mura whom the goddess considered as a daughter. However, new troubles continue to follow the couple into the human realm. Meanwhile, the Emperor of the gods continues his intrigues in preparation to eliminate potential threats to his throne. The artwork is beautiful, the story is lush, and the characters are passionate. I sometimes have trouble following the story because of confusion with the Korean names and use of multiple titles for the same character. I also don't know the background mythology that this world is based on, but I pick up enough to continue interest. Eventually, I hope to write out the characters with their various names and titles, research the gods they are based on, and then reread the story all together once it is complete. I think I will pick up much more on a second reading.
