Hi and hello to another review! I received this book for an honest review, for the promotion of Tobie Easton’s newest release: Submerge. It’s the second book in the Mer Chronicles, which is so brilliantly refreshing to YA fantasy. If you’re wondering why this is part 1/3 (indicated in the title), that is because I haven’t posted the review of the first book yet. So you may be a little lost. Instead, I’ve posted this non-spoilery review for you guys, and in a few days time when the first review is published, I’ll delve into deeper de-tails (I’m sorry for the puns, I can’t help myself).
I was given this lovely chance via Chapter by Chapter. Click the here to see the other tour stops, featuring other blogs (including excerpts).
Submerge (Mer Chronicles #2) by Tobie Easton
Publication Date: September 12, 2017
Now that Lia and Clay’s love has broken the Little Mermaid’s curse, everything has changed. Will Lia’s family remain on land, leading the only life she and her sisters have ever known, or will they move below the waves, to the sparkling new capital city? Lia is adamant about staying on land with Clay for her senior year. But at Melusine and her father’s trial, new revelations threaten what Lia holds most dear.
The verdict will shake Lia’s whole world, calling into question her future with Clay, her feelings for Caspian, and the fate of all Merkind. As she wonders who to trust, Lia sets out on a treacherous path that will lead her away from her sheltered Malibu home to a remote and mysterious school for Mermaids—Mermaids who may hold the secret to ancient magic Lia can use to either get back all she’s lost or to embark on a thrilling and dangerous journey.
I’m still deciding if this is even better than the first book. I am in love with this series. I rate it higher than Of Poseidon, which is the only other mermaid tale(hehe) I’ve ever read, and I already gave that series 5/5 stars.
If you’re looking to submerge yourself into a captivating series with unique mystical creatures: READ THIS BOOK. RIGHT NOW.
I love how Easton depicts teenagers– they’re relatable and reasonable (well… as much as you can be in the midst of fantasy-filled drama).
Clay is super romantic, so I highly recommend hitting this series up and hopping on that dream boat.
I love that this book immediately picks up from where Emerge left us– so there’s no missing moments we aren’t shared with. 😀
Also, this book has one of the best endings ever. Usually I don’t look forward to sequels, except for Catching Fire from THG (bc wow), but this book supersedes the first book. Actually– both a great. This series is wonderful.
Look forward to my future reviews about this series, it’s definitely been a highlight for my 2017 reading track 😀
