Mer Tales Trilogy by Brenda Pandos ~ Review by Fallon


4 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

She wanted her life to change... he wanted his to stay the same.

Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana's twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them. 

Ashlyn is about to discover what she'd thought to be true her whole life, wasn't, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn's life forever.

Fallon's Review:

Tatiana is best-friends with Ashlyn. Tatiana has a twin brother named Fin who Ashlyn is completely obsessive about. One day Tatiana and Fin disappear. Ashlyn wonders what happened to them and becomes more suspicious when two men show up in their house claiming to be family.

I loved the fact that this story was a mermaid mystery that you had to keep reading to uncover. The suspense of this story made it unique and a stand out. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 Stars.

Author Description:

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.

Fallon's Review:

This book picks up where Everblue left off. Ash and Fin are now separated by distance. Counting the seconds they can be together. Fin is traveling with his family even when hie heart is with Ash. 

These two have life changing decisions to make. Will Ash leave everything behind and join the world under the sea or will Fin give up his Fin for Human legs on land. 

I almost love the longing of these two being separated. I was glued to the pages all though the night. I thought the cover was so breathtaking. I amm giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Author Description:

With one kiss, Tatiana has discovered a love for a man she’d hated—the prince of Natatoria. Through the botched rescue attempt by her father against this union, an army of rebels has revealed their identity and intentions—treason. When the King is fatally injured, Azor takes things into his own hands. No one is safe as mers are forced to take sides. Betamers take the blame, including Tatiana’s family’s closest friend, Badger, and the punishment is death.

Caught between the bond and her true feelings, Tatiana, the future Queen, must overcome the promise to fight for what’s right and uncover the truths of the past or all will become Everlost.

Fallon's Review:

This 3rd book flashes back and is now from Tatiana’s POV. You also see into Azor’s thinking. Everything changes for Tatiana's after one kiss. finds herself torn between how much she hates Azor at times and her unwanted love for him.

Azor was an easy character to hate and I laughed at times while reading at his expense. This book did get a little descriptive on the genitalia and how to arouse the opposite sex. I would not recommend this for young teens. 

I loved this fresh perspective to the series and the fact that we got a more clear picture as to everything that happened. This book tied up everything in such an effortless way. I loved the struggles that Tatiana has to face. This book really pulled at your heart strings. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.
