Lia is once again torn between the Mer world and the human world – the expectations of her parents and culture versus her own dreams and desires. I love her strength and I really enjoyed how much she grew during this story. Her confidence is tested over and over but she’s fierce and always reaches out to do what’s right. Clay…sigh…Clay. He’s just the perfect boyfriend. Sexy, swoony, smart, and devoted to Lia…can’t ask for more than that. The chemistry between these two is perfect and I could spend countless hours basking in their sweet romance. Now, I will admit to also swooning hard over Caspian. As Lia’s best friend, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure she’s happy and safe. His unrequited love breaks my heart so, truth be told, I spent most of the book wanting to give him a hug. Long story short, I just can’t pick a book boyfriend here. Ms. Easton…can I have them both???
This story is built around the premise of trusting others – when you can, when you should, when you shouldn’t, and when it all backfires. Over and over my heart battled my head in this trusting game. I wasn’t always right about who to trust and neither was Lia but, even with the twists and turns she encountered, she stayed strong. The baddies are bad and the story is a roller coaster that had me hooked from the very beginning. And, after that last sentence, I’m desperate for book 3!! If you like fantasy, take a leap into the deep end and immerse yourself in the wonderful Mer world that Ms. Easton has created. Trust me, you’ll fall in love! I know I did!
In Submerge we are introduced to the dynamics of the Mer culture, some of which is rather distasteful and some very impressive world building. As with Emerge there are twists, turns and surprises that keep you guessing and curious. As Lia deals with unforeseen issues after the trial of Melusine and Mr. Havelock she delves into the world of powerful undersea magic which may have hidden and unknown consequences in order to right a wrong and get back what she has lost.
I very much enjoyed, while at times being frustrated at, Lia's realism. She's not perfect, she gets it wrong, but she drives forward for the people and issues she cares about. Lia cares strongly, both in a positive sense for those she loves and in a negative for those she fights against, The more we see from her, the more hidden depths emerge: she is willing to do the wrong thing, for the right reasons, but also the hard thing, for the right reasons.
Overall, I recommend Submerge by Tobie Easton as a magically intricate, romantic and strong story which will keep you guessing the whole way through.
(I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free from the author in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)
Submerge starts where the first book ended, the trail. After Lia and Clay did *spoilerly* the entire mermaid race is at peace. There is so much world building that I loved. I want to read more of the Mer world and Lia’s way of life. Lia has defiantly grown since book 1. She made, in my opinion, the right thing at the end.
Now I have to wait anxiously for book 3! I can’t wait to read more about Lia’s world and mermaids
