Just for fins by Tera Lynn Childs
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.
When Lily Sanderson
decided to remain Crown Princess Waterlily of the mermaid kingdom
Thalassinia, she knew she couldn’t just coast along in the current. But
since she’s spent the last couple of years on land—with gorgeous human
Quince by her side—Lily’s not sure she has the fins to lead a kingdom.
Even her maddeningly pretentious cousin Dosinia seems to know more
about ruling than she does.
But Lily has to dive in deep to keep
her promise to Tellin, her mer bond in name only, whose kingdom is
suffering in the changing ocean climate. Lily knows this is a seven
seas–sized problem: from sea animals dying to oil spills and threats to
humans. They’ll need to create some serious waves to make the mer
community aware and get it to join together to make things right. Even
if that means facing one of the iciest queens in the mer kingdoms.
when Lily thinks her double life on land and sea can’t get any more
complicated, an ancient mer law might separate Lily and Quince after
all. It feels as if the pair is up against a solid tsunami wave!
this third installment in the series that began with Forgive My Fins
and Fins Are Forever, Lily will have to find a way to balance safety
and justice for the mer people as well as for the humans she loves. (Synopsis provided by Goodreads)
I really enjoyed this installment of the series. The end was done in a way that closes the story, but we also have it open enough so if Childs does carry the series on there is still enough there that the readers will appreciate.
This one had to do with the environmental concers that the mer-people have. Using real life issues that the oceans are facing. However, Childs dealt with it in a way that it never felt heavy handed. You really feel like you are there in the oceans with the mermaids.
I really liked the turn that Doe's character takes and how she develops further. Lily was fabulous as well the scene in the beginning with the squid ink still has me laughing! I really loved the book and am sad to think that we may not get to swim with Lily anymore.
If you haven't picked up this series, you should they are super fun super fast reads and very cute!
Just finished reading Just for fins last night, be on the look out for my review this week! I've read a few other books that are not going to be reviewed as they don't fit into the blog and what the blog is about and the reviews I have.
BUT You should all read these 3 books by Liz Curtis Higgs:
Bad girls of the Bible Really bad girls of the Bible
And Embrace Grace
They are all fabulous reads! Anyone can read them male or female, they are devotional books, BUT can be read as a non-devotional if you so choose.
It's been awhile since I've had new books to share. I've been REALLY busy with my new job which I LOVE! This week I got 5 books, 3 I bought, one I got for signing up for the publisher's newsletter and one was sent from a friend who thought I'd like it with the stipulation I pass it on to another friend when I'm done in the spirit of World Book Night. The books I bought this week were:
