Overview

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.

    Good Read for Highschool Level

    It was a bit to slow for me, but this was the first book I have read about mermaids in along time. I recommended to my sister and she absolutely adores it. I would recommend ths series espcially if like me you are in between series. The plot was well written and easy to understand.

    this is my first book i've read on mermaids and mermen, i must say i did enjoy the book. even though it's not long, the author did not miss out on the details. we learn about tatchi and fin's culture, what happens when you promise to people, and the characters are just great.

    I love this book. The ending is a little anticlimactic, but other than that it is wonderful!

    A Must Read!

    Let me first start by saying Brenda is a local author so she writes about locations that I know very well in this case it's Lake Tahoe (not Natatoria lol) and that's why I fall so deeply in love with her stories! I also haven't read a mermaid story since The Little Mermaid so I was very excited to read this.



    So Everblue takes place in two locations one on the surface and around Lake Tahoe and the other in a magical realm Natatoria both so different and vivid in their own ways. I could feel the chill off the lake and the snow still left around in the the spring setting of the book. I really could visualize the underground world as well.



    Onto the characters Ash is the MC and I loved everything about her she is a swimmer (so was I) so I could completely relate to her issues with nerves on race day. She is an amazing and loyal friend when Tatchi her best friend and Finn Tatch's brother and the boy she loves go missing she stops at nothing to find them. Tatchi is an adorable character I love the fight she has in her she wants to live her own life not the one dictated by the Mer's in Natatoria. On to Finn oh sighs whats there to know about Finn? He's a sexy blonde haired blue eyed merman who can even pull off wearing a kilt look sexy. He's also completely in love with Ash you can feel his passion for her burn right of the page! There's also a sexy baseball player named Callahan who stole my heart I absolutely love baseball players if you don't believe me ask my last two boyfriends lol (both baseball players).



    This story had me sucked in on page one and kept me up until 4a.m. reading I guarantee once you pick up this book you will not want to put it down!

    Highly Recommended!

    I've read ALOT of books, and The first thing that ran through my mind about this book was the cover. Now I know about that saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover' But I really just could not help it on this one. The cover is Beautiful. It drew me in first thing. And the last E on the title is shaped like a merimaid tail, which is so creative!
    This book is a must read!! I dont wanna give anything away, but i was drawn to this book, could not stop turning the pages! I read it in about a hour and a half! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    I have to admit I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.  I usually have a lot of trouble getting into and enjoying books about mer-people, but this book was really good.  I read it in one day and couldn’t stop until I finished it.  This book has love, adventure, action, and much more.  The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think there could have been a bit more to the romance aspect of the story.  It felt a little rushed and a tad less passionate then I would have liked, but that is my only complaint.  I’m looking forward to reading more and will be recommending this book.

    Very good!!!

    I am so sick of reading typical love stories. So when I saw this one about Mermaids I was totally intrigued. Not only is it an origianl idea, but its so cleaverly written too. She completely developes her characters and brings us into this amazing world and culture undersea. I couldnt put it down!!!

    Rating: 4.5 Stars




    I really enjoyed The Talisman series by this author, so when I saw that she had a new series I knew I needed to try it. I am really glad I did, because the world that she created in this one was incredible. I really liked the interaction with Ash and Fin, and I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I had gotten this book at a time when it was free on the nook. After finishing her talisman series and loving it I was hoping this would be just as good - and it was! I was drawn in from the very beginning. When I actually got the time to sit down and read I finished it in one sitting. I love that it is told from Ashlyn's and Fin's points if view. The details of Natatoria are really good you can see them in your mind. I think I have only read one other mermaid book and the fact that I can't remember if says something- Brenda's book us one that could for sure make them as popular as vampires and the other mythical creatures. Now that I'm done with this review I'm going to open book number 2!:)
