5 out of 5 stars

Author's Description:

Sometimes following your heart can end up destroying the ones you love. When seventeen-year-old Eviana Dumahl is faced with the responsibility of an arranged marriage and clan leadership, she is forced to choose between the life required of a mermaid and one of a teenage girl simply infatuated with the wrong guy. Kain, her devoted fiance, would make a wonderful husband except that she's been in love with Brendan, a shape-shifting selkie, ever since they were kids. Choosing to abandon her family, her clan, and her life with Kain will have dire consequences far beyond anything she could have imagined. A war is brewing amongst the clans and Eviana unwittingly becomes a pawn in the intricate schemes of a twisted mastermind. With Brendan's life on the line, she has no choice but to involve those she once considered friends. Amidst encountering senseless tragedies and immense loss, Eviana discovers that she is more valuable as a clan leader than anyone ever suspected. Her survival is not only dependent upon the loyalty of her friends, but also on her acceptance of a life she so adamantly tried to escape. Promises is the first book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends through the perils of growing up in a discrete world that inherently threatens human society.

Fallon's  Review:

This is one of my favorite mermaid series! Amber Garr does not disappoint with this book, the fantasy and romance start from the moment you start this book to the end. Amber's writing is filed with so much detail and she has an imagination unlike anyone else. 

Eviana is a mermaid in love with the wrong person. She is arranged to marry Kain. The problem is she has loved Brandon a selkie for as long as she can remember. Her family and all the mermaid clan is opposed to that happening.

There is one scene and I won't spoil any thing but when Eviana has to go away with Kain, and they stay on a house boat together. Let us just say I feel in love with one of my number one book boyfriends at that point and I totally swooned. I loved the banter and chemistry through out the book.

I loved this book and are in love with Kain. I am just saying. This book was so well written and with so many mermaid stories out there this was a stand alone. It was imaginative and very original. I loved the other creatures introduced. I won't spoil cause you should read it but some have not been in other mermaid books I have read recently. So pick this up and you will be glued from start to finish. 

I am giving Promises 5 out of 5 Stars. Amber Garr created this world with no detail left out. Amber's imagination is out of this world and will pull you in and not let go. This is a must read.

Author's Description:

Life as a mermaid can be suffocating. Eviana Dumahl has returned home as a clan leader, an orphan, and a heartbroken teenage girl. Her parents are dead and her boyfriend, Brendan, has decided that he needs some time away. While battling her inner turmoil, Eviana is forced into the war that Lucian Sutherland has incited amongst her own kind. With the help of Kain, her friend and formally betrothed, the two work together to prove that they deserve their birthrights as young merfolk leaders. When the Council requests a demonstration of Eviana's mermaid powers, she finds herself with an opportunity to win back Brendan's heart. But her orders to train with a repulsive merman and the presence of an attractive new suitor challenges Eviana to embrace her leadership and resist temptation. Lucian is after her, and no one seems to understand why. Loyalties are tested as the casualties increase, showing Eviana that sometimes it is impossible to delineate between friends and enemies. Betrayal is the second book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends as they navigate through the challenges of existing in a secret world.

Fallon's Review:

I always get nervous after a really great first book if the rest of the series is going to continue to meet the expectations that have been set. Amber Garr proved with Betrayal that she can and did, she far exceeded my expectations with this amazing sequel. It was flirty, full of action, and made you feel so many different emotions!

Eviana has come back broken and alone. She has to patch up the mess she left in the wake of her absence. Brandon wants time to sort things out. Eviana gave up everything and has a hard time with Brandon's decision. With power hungry enemies Eviana has to get it together and fast.

Eviana has to prove herself to the counsel. In the process hopes to win back Brandon. Then enters the new hotty Graham. With his accent and flirtatious ways. You will be swooning. When Graham is forced to to accompany her while Eviana trains so she can reach her potential and stop anyone else she cares about from getting hurt, things definitely heat up!

I loved this book. It is the most beautiful mermaid world. I am still in love with Kain, but Graham will definitely have you swooning and heart stop a few beats! I mean who doesn't love someone who is sure of himself, at least sometimes! But Kain is still my book boyfriend!!! I love the fact that Kain finds his power and new sense of strength. This is a great book series and I highly recommend picking it up. I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars! Amber did not disappoint with this 2nd
book.

Author's Description:

After the betrayal of those closest to her, Eviana Dumahl struggles to cope with her new reality. Kidnapped, broken, and confused, she is forced to engage in a war that will alter merfolk politics forever. With her estranged father leading the charge, Eviana has no choice but to stand by his side. Her continued existence hinges on the acceptance of the power growing inside her, even when that means embracing the family’s dark lineage.

Kain Matthew will sacrifice the world for Eviana. And he is not alone. As time runs out, her friends fight to save her life and theirs. An unlikely alliance gives them the edge they need to take a stand, although it keeps Eviana’s heart trapped in the past. A new discovery explains some of her previous mistakes, but it may not be enough to stop her father’s plans. Merfolk, selkies, and water sprites work together to save their kind, only in this final battle, not everyone will survive.

In the striking series conclusion, Eviana will learn the true meaning of power, sacrifice, and love.

Fallon's Review:

Amber Garr managed to have a series where all three books were equally as outstanding!!! This amazing final book ended leaving us breathless! I absolutely loved this series it was  well written, full of romance, fantasy, and imagination.

 In this Final book there is tragedy, love, faith, romance, strength, betrayal. So much happens and nobody is the same. With Eviana kidnapped by her father. He wants her to unite with him and take over.

Kain will risk everything to rescue Eviana. Brandon still is in love with Eviana and always will be and he joins in the fight. Graham wants Eviana to join him as well. Eviana will have to choose who she belongs with. Nothing will be the same in this epic conclusion.

I loved this book.I jumped right into this book right after reading Betrayal and was not able to put it down. This series was addicting. I still love Kain though, lol. I liked the glimpse we got into more supporting characters in this final book. This is a must read for anyone who loves mermaid stories. Amber Garr has created such a unique and incredible world. This whole book is a 5 out of 5 stars , along with the whole series!
