Summary: 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.
My Thoughts: I was excited to read this one but it took me quite some time to actually get to it! It went on my tbr shelf and just didn’t stand out enough to pick it up. But, I did finally pick it up!
We are back with Lily who spends half her time under the water and the other half on land! She still has the same friends and family members! I really still love Quince. Oh Quince, how you are so sweet and cuddly! HA! I loved that Quince also had to do some trials to show how much he really loves Lily. Each trial was somewhat hard but he managed through them.
The plot of this one, I really did like it. Lily has to get everyone to come together and solve a big problem. I honestly don’t want to give too much away for this one. I also am glad we got to see Tellin again. I really do like him too.
I really enjoyed this one and can’t wait to read the next one soon!
Overall: I think I liked this one a bit less than the first one but I still enjoyed it a lot. I really like Lily and all her friends/family. I’m excited to see what will happen next.
Cover: Love it! I just love the colors of these covers!
