Rating: ★★★

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?

 Once again another quick read, but unlike the first book this one is filled with DRAMA. It's not that bad however it's just not my thing so I felt so drained out after reading this. I was hoping there would be more Quince and Lily moments but sadly no luck for me.

On the other hand, "Brody and Doe and their love" was unexpected though, after the first book I thought Brody was a no no for mergirls. But who knows he is all Lilly had claimed he is "a guy of the sea but unfortunate to be born on land." It's just that he was not the guy for her but for her cousin. I felt so bad for Lily, for all she had gone through in this book. She is so strong because if all of this happened to me in that sort period of time I would explode. 

Tellin (Lily's childhood friend) *sigh* I thought this guy can somehow make things a little bit chessy/fun but he proposed to Lily purely for his kingdom. No love or even an interest because he is already taken. I hope the next book will be better or I will feel let down, disappointed by this series.
