Fins are Forever Review

272 pages

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?

I actually received this as an ARC a few days before it came out so I put it on hold to read. I have to say it was an ok read. While the storyline and writing style isn't strong it is still a light, fun read. I enjoyed the romance aspect of the book. While fairly predictable it is still extremely sweet. I love how Lily thinks so much about others and I enjoyed how she grew as a person. I also enjoyed the fact that Quince was willing to sacrifice everything for Lily yet again. While I can't say I really liked the ending I have to admit it wasn't expected. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a quick book to enjoy especially at the beach.
