In this coming of age story, Meara Quinn is about to find out there are worse things than moving to a tiny oceanside town before her senior year. Like discovering there's a secret being kept from her and knowing it's a life-changer.

After experiencing vivid visions of her absentee father, Meara decides she deserves answers. With the help of her new friend Evan, a guy she happens to be falling for, she embarks on a journey in the hopes of unlocking family history and finding her true self. But when she meets a handsome stranger at a local club who knows far more about her than he should, her world is again shaken. In him, Meara may have uncovered the key to the very secret that will reveal not only who she is... but what she is.

The Never Forgotten series starts as a light paranormal romance with an Irish/Scottish folklore twist and grows into an underwater urban fantasy where love, loyalty and friendship face the ultimate test. If you like mermaids, sirens, and other water fae you may not have met before, this series is for you.

With over 300 five-star ratings on Goodreads, the Never Forgotten series is a Best Book Award-finalist young adult paranormal romance series that will appeal to fans of House of Royale by Jaymin Eve, Sirangel by Lucia Ashta, and Born of Water by A.L. Knorr.

About the Author

Kelly Risser knew at a young age what she wanted to be when she grew up. Unfortunately, Fairytale Princess was not a lucrative career. Leaving the castle and wand behind, she entered the world of creative business writing where she worked in advertising, marketing, and training at various companies. She's often found lamenting, "It's hard to write when there's so many good books to read!" So, when she's not immersed in the middle of someone else's fantasy world, she's busy creating one of her own. This world is introduced in her first novel, Never Forgotten. Kelly lives in Wisconsin with her husband and two children. They share their home with Clyde the Whoodle and a school of fish.

The title of Never Forgotten threw me off.  I thought this book was going to be about a loved one dying and the people never forgetting who that person was.   This is a paranormal YA read.  The prologue started out when Meara was 10 years younger and having a dream about her father that she has never known. Chapter One starts out the tears.  Meara goes home after school and calls out for her mom.  Her mom sits her down because she has something grave to tell her... she has stage 4 cancer and they are moving with her grandparents in Canada. The first part of the book is sad.  Meara is 17 years old and has to deal with her mother dying, moving to another country and also meeting new people before her last year of school starts. This is a different paranormal read.  I love it when authors bring in different creatures that are not often written about.  During her time in Canada, Meara finds new friends, a boyfriend and even meets the father that has been absent for most of her life.  She finds out what she really is.  This book has laughter, tears and discovery of both love and truth.  I enjoyed it from page one.  I didn't want to put it down.  I am looking forward to continuing Meara's story in Current Impressions (which is available now)

Excellent read! I am ecstatic that the rest of the series is out. The author does a fabulous job of weaving mythology into a contemporary tale while skillfully building suspense as Meara searches for who/what she is. Both adult and teen characters are well-developed and believable throughout the story. Can't wait to see what happens in book two and three.

The story didn't seem to have what the others did in keeping you interested in it. Others I couldn't put down but this one took a lot for me to read it.

As an author and mother of six kids, I’m extremely picky about what I spend my limited time reading. Most books I pick up, I put down after the first few pages. Unless it’s a compelling beginning, I don’t waste my time reading the rest. The day I picked this book up, I’d already started and gave up on five other books. But Never Forgotten…I don’t even remember making the decision to give it a full read. I was simply swept up in the story. Meara is such a relatable, sympathetic main character and my heart went out to her and her terminally ill mother. Evan was the perfect male protagonist—equal parts understanding, sympathetic, and hot. The setting was unforgettable, and described so well that I almost felt as if I were there. In fact, I swear I could literally feel the biting chill coming off the Atlantic Ocean. And I read this in August! This book is paranormal, but light on the fantasy and heavy on the character relationships. I thought it was a perfect balance for this story. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series. I’m seriously anxious to find out where the author will take us next. Great job, Kelly! You’ve written a beautiful story!

While this book was written with teens in mind I really enjoyed this book. My heart ached for Merea. I think it's great for any age.

Meara’s best friend was Kelly. Kelly wanted Meara to come to her uncle’s ranch for a visit as that is where Rachel will be working for the summer before their Senior year of HS. But Meara was suppose to work most of the summer at her mother’s Sharon’s Rebecca's store- a sewing and fabric store. Meara maintained the website and ran the cash register in the store. That day after school and seeing Kelly Meara was told by her mom her cancer was back and the doctor gave Sharon six months to two years. Sharon felt it was time Meara met her grandparents as they would be the only relatives she had after Sharon passed away. Sharon also told Meara they were moving to Canada in two weeks. Meara’s grandparents weren’t bad people and did what they could to make Meara feel welcome. Sharon talked of Meara’s dad- David- for the first time. Meara went with Sharon the next day to meet her mother’s best friend Lydia when she had lived in Peggy’s Cove before Meara was born. Lydia runs the B&B the Cove Inn. Lydia had a son who would be going to University his name was Evan and he was hot. Evan told Meara to drop by whenever she felt like it. She also meets Lydia’s daughter - not that first day though- Katie who was in the same grade as Meara. Meara is having dreams about her father David who warns her to be careful with Evan and to take care of her mother. Meara and Evan are getting close and start seeing each other. David gives Meara clues to what he is and also her which isn’t human - Meara is still half human. Katie and Evan help Meara figure out the clues. David comes back and marries Sharon. Then Meara discovers David is helping Sharon by lending her his power to ease Sharon’s pain. Meara then realizes how much her dad loves her mom. After Sharon passes away David gives Meara a letter from her mom. Meara has to decide to go with David and meet the other half of her family or stay with her grandparents and Evan. I liked this story but didn’t love it. But it did need more editing to be easier read and flow better. It does drag some of the time also. But definitely a different type of paranormal story and I enjoyed it to a degree but the story didn’t WOW me in any way. I loved the closeness between Meara and her mom. I hate the pain Meara had to go through leaving everything she knew behind and her Senior year but more important her mother's cancer and Sharon’s passing. So not a bad book just not a favorite.

This story had the makings of a fabulous novel, until the ending. The ending fell flat and ruined the whole book.
