One thing before I begin my rant on this book, it has been months since I read this book, but I have some notes from when I read it so I will try to make this review as accurate as possible. This week I'm going to try to catch up on all my reviews. So this is the third and last book of this series. I absolutely loved, loved, LOVED the first book, like I am still obsessing about it! The second book was also very good, but it didn't have the same free, romantic, happy, easy feel to it that the first book had. This book was the same as the second in that sense. One thing I loved about the first book was that there was so much ocean cheesy humor that was so adorable, this book took a completely serious "Save the Ocean" tone that made this book lose it's free, easy feel. I wish it could have been a lighter read. I still enjoyed the plot nonetheless. It was unique from the others and still was intriguing. It was an easy book to read and gave me a complete and satisfying end to this trilogy. 

My favorite part of this book was seeing the growth of all the characters. Lily became a leader and I respected her more and her decisions. Dosinia matured a ton! She used to be just a spoiled brat, but in this book she grew up and became a awesome character to get to know. The same is true for Brody, although I still don't get how Dosinia could change his perspective on mermaids so much. Quince, the whole reason I read these books, was still amazing as always. He is so dedicated to Lily, which I truly admire. I really wish this book could have had more about him and Lily's relationship in it, I missed that. Tellin's plot line I wasn't into. I feel like he wasn't necessary because it was like a almost love triangle but not really. What does that mean? Yeah, I still I don't get it. 

The ending was a great conclusion to this sweet little series. Although this book was not my favorite of the series, I still loved this trilogy and this book. The series matured a lot through the series. It started out easy breezy and light and became more mature along with the characters. Now that I think about it I really like that idea. I feel like I can leave Lily and Quince's story feeling confident that they are where they need to be. If Ms. Childs decides to write another book about Quince and Lily I won't complain, but if she doesn't I think I will still live.   

My Favorite Part: Once again Quince and also how much Dosinia matured.

Do I recommend this book? Yes, it's a satisfying end to an amazing trilogy.

Thanks for reading! My plan for the week is a review a day! :D
