When Lily Sanderson decided to remain Crown Princess Waterlily of the mermaid kingdom Thalassinia, she knew she couldn’t just coast along in the current. But since she’s spent the last couple of years on land—with gorgeous human Quince by her side—Lily’s not sure she has the fins to lead a kingdom. Even her maddeningly pretentious cousin Dosinia seems to know more about ruling than she does.
But Lily has to dive in deep to keep her promise to Tellin, her mer bond in name only, whose kingdom is suffering in the changing ocean climate. Lily knows this is a seven seas–sized problem: from sea animals dying to oil spills and threats to humans. They’ll need to create some serious waves to make the mer community aware and get it to join together to make things right. Even if that means facing one of the iciest queens in the mer kingdoms.
Just when Lily thinks her double life on land and sea can’t get any more complicated, an ancient mer law might separate Lily and Quince after all. It feels as if the pair is up against a solid tsunami wave!
In this third installment in the series that began with Forgive My Fins and Fins Are Forever, Lily will have to find a way to balance safety and justice for the mer people as well as for the humans she loves.
This book! It was just so awesome! I enjoyed reading about the end of Lily's journey, it was a nice book, and it ended in a pretty great place, and it was just such a great book! I am sad to say goodbye, but there is her Medusa series!
Complications for their relationship! If I told Lily, the Lily from pre-Forgive My Fins that she'd be fighting to be with Quince, I think she would've laughed so hard! But she did fight for him, and their relationship, and that was just so good!
Then there were the mer politics, which Lily thought she wasn't suited for, because she had no knowledge of how to do so, but she fit in pretty well, and was strong and confident, and she united them pretty great!
I loved how it was solved, with Quince passing the tests, and then getting a partial power, to be able to shift, so yeah, that was just an awesome ending, one that I enjoyed, because things were solved, and it was a really good ending!
I enjoyed this book so much, it was just really fantastic, and I can't wait to read more Tera Lynn Childs books!
