“I recommend this book for those who enjoy young adult insta-love, dual narration, and mermaid books.”
It’s been a while since I’ve read a mermaid book, and I enjoyed jumping into Everblue. Following the lives of Ashlyn and Fin, Everblue takes us into the world where mers are real, and all it takes is one kiss to change everything.
Flipping between the human world in Tahoe to the mer world in Natatoria, I found Everblue entertaining, fast-paced, and a fun read. It had everything I like in a book from fun settings to great characters. I especially loved the creativity behind how humans can transform into mers and vice versa.
The setting of Natatoria was intriguing with the idea that mers could equip their homes with air bubbles as to change into human form, and how even though they live in this vivid undersea world, they still love human items and luxuries. I also liked the idea of this glamorous world where everything glittered with jewels. I could easily imagine living in Natatoria, though I’m not sure I’d want to after following Fin’s story.
The dual narration was also something I enjoyed. It was like two stories woven into one, which kept the pace going at a quick speed, though I did prefer the parts of the story when Ash and Fin were together. Their romance was cute and mushy, and I wish that it dove into it more instead of just skimming the surface. I look forward to book two in the series to see how things play out.
I recommend this book for those who enjoy young adult insta-love, dual narration, and mermaid books.
