Review: Fins are Forever

Fins Are Forever (Fins, #2)Fins Are Forever
by Tera Lynn Childs
Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 1st 2011
by Katherine Tegen Books

Book Blurb:

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.

My Review:
Fins are Forever is the second book in the Fins Series by Tera Lynn Childs, and it left me satisfied and wanting more.

FIF brings us back to the tail, harhar, of Lily right on the cusp of her being ready to relinquish her title as Princess of Thalassinia. On her eighteenth birthday she needs to make the choice of ruling or staying above the waves.

If things were not already hectic for Lily being seventeen and on the needs of choosing her future, she is looking for colleges, getting romantic and soon finds a new responsibility: Doe.

FiF was a fantastic read. We see Lily caught in the middle of responsibility, romance, and an eagerness to fulfill the things she wants partnered with the tasks needed to complete it.

Tera Lynn Childs takes us back under the waves and into a whole new adventure with the characters that we all so loved from Forgive My Fins, and the finish leaves us hungering for the nest installment of the series
