On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mer girl, true, but signing the renunciation paperwork will ink Princess Waterlily of Thalassinia out of existence. That leaves plain old Lily living on land, dating the boy she loves, and trying to master this being human thing once and for all.
Now that Lily and Quince are together, mer-bond or not, she’s almost content to give up her place in the royal succession of Thalassinia. But just when she thinks she has everything figured out, Lily’s father sends a certain whirlpool-stirring cousin to stay with her on land. What did Doe do to get herself exiled from Thalassinia and stuck in terraped form, when everyone knows how much she hates humans? And why why why is she batting her eyelashes at Lily’s former crush, Brody?
The seafoam on the surf comes when a merboy from Lily’s past shows up. Tellin asks Lily for something that clouds her view of the horizon. There’s a future with Quince on land, her loyalty to the kingdom in the sea, and Lily tossing on the waves in the middle. Will she find a way to reconcile her love, her duty, and her dreams?

My Thoughts
I remember the assumptions I made before reading Forgive My Fins, the first book in the series. I was quite reluctant to read it. Now with Fins are Forever, I had the same feelings. Not that I didn't want to read it, I kind of just thought that it won't be good as the last book. I'm still trying to figure out why I had these doubts and where they came from as I did in fact enjoy reading Fins are Forever.

I'm telling you, it's just that this series is seriously cute. No friggin lie people. I could just use this book as teady bear. Okay so that's a slight exaggeration but you know where I'm coming from right? It's the little love thing that's going on that gives the entire 'cute' element. The romance. Aww Quince and Lily. Just adorable!

We're faced with a new sort of problem in Fins are Forever. It's to do with Lily of course. Boy, she has some tough decisions to make in Thalassinia. She's a lot stronger that in the last book, and what with the ending, I also think that she truly has matured. Though, I didn't see that one coming but I so should have. It was quite sad actually. It makes you wonder what exactly is going to happen in the next book seeing as the roles have changed drastically.

Will we be getting our fairytale ending? I wonder. I wonder. I enjoyed reading Fins are Forever, I didn't love it but it was good and I liked reading it. I'm quite sure everything will go alright at the end. But what if Tera decides to surprise us again? Oh no.


  1. It's wonderful to hear that the sequel is so solid, so entertaining of a read, and YO, I like cute characters and an adorable read. This fits right into what I expect from most mermaid books!

  2. I really want to read this after reading Forgive My Fins, it is such a cute read! Great review :)

  3. The new twists of Lily's bratty younger cousin Doe showing up was great! She is one of those characters you hate but find a bit amusing and appealing! The trouble she brings to the book adds a bit of additional humor to the story that is great!
