From the back cover...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.
I loved Evergreen even more than the first book in the series, Everblue!
The story line was more intense in this book, with a bit more action and conflict. There were some unexpected surprises along the way, taking the story in directions that I hadn’t anticipated. We learn a lot more about the mer culture that the author has created and I love the uniqueness of that.
One of the things I loved most about these characters is that they act, for the most part, true to age. There new characters in Evergreen, too, and they fell on both sides of the good vs. bad scale. The bad guys are just as interesting as the good and elicit just as much passion from the reader, even if it is frustration and annoyance!
This series is proving to be an engrossing and fun read. If you like mermaid fiction, give this series a try!
