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.

Review –
I think I let too much time go by between finishing the first book and starting the second because i had to make myself finish it. 
It picked right up where the first book ended and had lots of actions,drama,romance etc, but maybe I had too many other books going that I liked better. It was very good but I was just not in the mood for Mer-Tales. Maybe I will wait until Summer to read book three,then it will be hot and a Mer -Tale would make for a refreshing read.

Everblue (Mer Tales) by Brenda Pandos

Book Description

February 15, 2014
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.

Review –
Mermaid books are not books I ever read but in the last couple of weeks this is the second one I’ve finished.(See Monstrous Beauty in a previous post)
This is a very fast read and a bit or should I say a lot far-fetched (but what books about Mermaids aren’t?)  and it deals with teenage feelings of love, the strong bond of family and has plenty of action. It was good enough for me to read the next in the Mer Tales series, which I will report on at a   later date.
Though strange it is a very good read.
