Immerse is the spellbinding and breathless final installment of the Mer Chronicles series where descendants of the Little Mermaid must face deadly magic, shifting alliances, and the dangers of forbidden love.
Lia can’t wait for her parents’ coronation. Now living in the sparkling palace beneath the waves, she sneaks off to Malibu whenever possible to see Clay. Tucked away in an abandoned seaside mansion, Lia and Clay devise a plan to ensure they can stay together forever.
But when an old enemy resurfaces and Lia is restricted to the palace for the safety of all Merkind, she and Clay are ripped apart once more.
She fears not only for Clay, but for her best friend Caspian, who seems to be swimming down a dangerous path. He has invited the conniving Melusine to the coronation ball, convinced she’s capable of change. And no matter how hard Lia fights it, showing up on Caspian’s arm is just the start of Melusine’s insidious return to her life.
With threats Below growing more ominous by the day and a powerful ancient ritual looming, soon the two girls can’t escape each other. As their fates grow increasingly intertwined, Melusine might be the only one who can help Lia find the answers she desperately needs to save everyone she loves and to achieve her happily ever after. But can Lia trust her?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have wanted to read this series for a long time. I do believe I read the first book a couple years ago, but I have absolutely no memory of it. None whatsoever. So getting to read it from start to finish was a necessity. So, here's a brief recap from the first two books in the series.
In the first book, EMERGE, Lia Nautilus is forced to live topside. Everything about her is kept a secret, but she has her difficulties. With a cute human-boy involved, what girl wouldn't have trouble?
In the second, SUBMERGE, a curse has been broken. I'll leave it at that. lol
And now onward to IMMERSE. There is the feeling of a love-triangle happening. I mean, c'mon. Lia cares about her best friend, Caspian, but she's definitely in love with Clay. Being torn away from him was nerve racking FOR ME! There's a lot of ugly coming and Lia just wants everything to work out!
Tobie Easton is an amazing storyteller. Her version of The Little Mermaid is phenomenal. It's brilliant. My mom told me that for the first 3 years of my life, The Little Mermaid was all I wanted to watch. To the extent that I would wake her up in the middle of the night because I figured out how to work the VCR (my goodness, I'm getting old if I am able to remember what a VHS is). Mermaids are definitely my favorite mythical creature and I feel that the Mer Chronicles is an excellent representation of that mystical world. It's amazing.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Chapter by Chapter Book Tours. This is my honest, voluntary review.
