Immerse by Tobie Easton is the conclusion in a YA Fantasy inspired by The Little Mermaid!
“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?“
This book brings the series together very nicely. It is a story that I feel like you need to read all the books to get the big picture in what’s happening and why the characters strive for what they do.
If you like mythical, somewhat-modern fantasy retellings, this one will bring the classic Little Mermaid to new light. This adaptation brings such a unique, dark twist to what we typically view the Disney-version as. So don’t expect a lighthearted story here.
I’ve noticed that each of the books kind of starts off on a slower pace but quickly draws you in until your flying through the drama, romance, and legends.
There is a tendency towards a love triangle in this book. But I won’t spoil with who. You’ll just have to read the series for all the juicy details.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. I think the writing features a great storytelling aspect to this unique world, and there are so many parts that feel like I’m watching the story unfold in my head. I really enjoyed seeing the characters finally wrap up with the satisfactory ending.
