Book Review: Evergreen

A kingdom on the brink of war.
A king on the fringes of insanity.
A family running for their lives.

Ash and Fin’s only desire is to be together and dive into their happily ever after, though their conflicting worlds work to pull them apart. Neither is ready to convert to the other’s life: become a human or a mer. Little do they know that somewhere in Natatoria a secret holds the fine fabric of everyone’s lives together. If the truth is discovered, Ash and Fin will no longer have the luxury of waiting. They’ll be forced to choose. But will it be for loyalty or love? Or will someone else make the choice for them if they can’t decide?

Enter the watery world of treachery, greed, and the binding mer kiss as the story continues with Evergreen, book two of Mer Tales.

Evergreen is the second book in Brenda Pandos' Mer Tales trilogy. The first is Everblue, and the third, coming out next February, is Everlost. I read and loved Everblue a few months ago, and each day that passed between then and the release of Evergreen was torture, relieved only by other great books. I was so excited to hear about what was going to happen with Fin and Ash next.

Fin and Ash were torn apart, when Fin's family left. Both have to survive apart through the pull of the promise, a mermaid bond. Neither are pleased with the situation, and every day apart grows harder. Fin's family moves into Fin's old house, which happens to me next door to Ash's, and she is in danger. They think she's someone that she's not. With Fin on the other side of the country, how can he protect his promised?

Evergreen was a quick, fun read, full of mermaid fun and romance. But it was so much more than that. There was mystery and danger, longing and romance, and deling with high school in between all of that. So much happened that it's left me anxious for the conclusion. If you're interested in reading a fun, fantasy romance, this is definitely one to look up. And with Everblue costing only 99c as an ebook, what do you have to lose?
