"Ha! I thought, nepotism strikes again."

Life isn't done dealing out trials and problems for Marina and Ethan.  Though they know what they want, it seems that everyone and everything is conspiring against them.  Edwards and Olivia seem to not have given up on their evil plans to steal the secrets of immortality from the mermaids and Marina is determined to protect them.  But what must she do to accomplish this?  And will she lose Ethan in the process?  As priorities are tested, will Marina and Ethan be pulled apart by their past and their future?  Or can they find a way to bridge the gap and be together?

My Opinion: True to form, this was another wonderful book full of excitement and romance.  In this final chapter of the series, Marina is faced with her real motivations and growing up.  Ethan is conflicted when forces try to tear them apart.  Getting back to some more romance, I felt that they had great chemistry and they definitely had some good scenes.  The excitement kept up as well as Marina fights to help her mermaid sisters from those who would use them for nefarious deeds.  It resolved all the characters, though I felt like it took too much time to do that when it could have been condensed.  Overall a fun book and series that I would recommend.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.

  1. In the first three books the big issue was Marinas strong desires towards the ocean but in this fourth and final book the big issue was both her and Ethans insecurities towards each-other.
    There is also a lot of jealousy going on which of course disturbs their relationship.
    There were a lot of twists and turns that were completely unexpected and this is what made the book so good.
