Fins are Forever
Author:Tera Lynn Childs
publication date: July 1 2011
On Lily Sanderson’s eighteenth birthday she’ll become just a girl—still a mergirl, true, but signing the renunciation 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, the waves start to get rough. 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 raging 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 own dreams?
Tera Lynn Childs’s sequel to Forgive My Fins offers another tail-flicking romance with plenty of fun, sun, and underwater adventure.
I don’t usually read many mermaid books but this series has me blown away.
In the last book Lily ad drama unfolds, lily is crushing on the popular guy at school, while a Quince pines away for her every second he can. Quince and Lily bond and they have to go to the castle to separate. She doesn’t want Quince to turn into a merman.
Now we have the second book in the series where Lily and Quince are in love with each other, she has to make a huge decision in her life, she has to bond with someone before her 18th birthday or she will be a normal girl and leave her castle underwater.
But before she can make her mind up, drama comes in the way, her royal cousin who she hates shows up on her doorstep, Doe has been cast out of the sea and can’t go back till she learns her lesson. The only problem is Lily doesn’t know when she will learn her lesson, Lily has to take Doe to school and what does she see her ex-crush and her cousin Doe flirting.
Not only does she think this is the worst idea ever Doe is not abiding by any of the rules. Doe breaks the one rule Lily told her not to do, don’t kiss Brody. You see once a mermaid kisses someone else they become bonded and they are attached to each other. Only the king (lily’s dad) can separate them.
Thankfully everything worked out at the end, happily ever after. There better be a third book!
I really did love this book. I have been waiting forever to read the sequel to forgive my fins and finally it shows up in my mailbox. Fins are forever didn’t disappoint. I love how Tera Lynn Childs can create such an enticing story.
