Her whole life flashed before me. This kiss I desired to give her would change everything-her dreams, her life with her family, her future. Innocent and trusting, she closed her eyes and tilted her chin upward in anticipation anyway. My soul protested, but I did the only thing I could-the responsible thing.
“You’ve got something on your cheek,” I said, wiping my thumb over her skin.

Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana’s twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.
Ashlyn is about to discover what she’d thought to be true her whole life, wasn’t, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn’s life forever.
Brenda Pandos has done it again! She has created a storyline that has completely sucked me in! The Mer Tales series is unlike any other that I have read and I was engrossed from the first pages.
I cannot exactly say that I have one favorite character. They all seem to work perfectly together and fit very well into the story. Ashlyn, the human friend. Fin and Tatiana, the twin merfolk. Their parents, the King and his son, Azor and the court. I loved all of them! If I would have to choose just one, I would say Badger, because I love his accent…LOL.
All of you romantics will not be disappointed when reading. Ashlyn has two different love interests and things really get complicated…quickly! I cannot say which one that I liked more, they both seemed like really great guys, I can only say that I am happy with her choice.
With a huge cliff hanger ending, I was left wanting more and more. I cannot wait to hear about the second book in this series and I will be the first in line to get it! Thanks Brenda for introducing me to the world of Merfolks! They are mesmerizing!
