This book wasn't really great. The story was unique (I guess), but I didn't really enjoy it. Also, if I were a redhead, I don't think I would enjoy a man calling me their 'ginger girl.' I would find it offensive, since being called a "ginger" isn't really a good thing.

I have one question: was this book even proofread before it was published? Ashlyn is going to college, not 'collage.' Also, 'dossal' doesn't equal 'docile' (they're not even REMOTELY the same thing), 'aloud' doesn't equal 'allowed.

Shelves: mermaid, 2012

While I enjoyed this one, I think I liked the first book a little more. This book picks up where the last book ended. Fin and Ash are separated. Fin is on the run with his parents and Ash is attempting to live her normal high school life. They have to deal with their separation with minimal contact. I got a little frustrated with all the secrets. I mean, if you’re supposed to be so in love shouldn’t you trust your partner with anything? I guess it’s just to add some tension, but it did bother

Evergreen is a fun and cute beach read. Brenda Pandos created a unique and interesting mermaid world. I love how a mermaid/mermans kiss is so special, binding and promising the two together. Evergreen has a great story line and it took quite a few cool, unexpected twists.
The romance was cute, sometimes a little cheesy, but sweet.
I'm used to the characters in

After the cliffhanger ending of Everblue (the first book in this series)..I couldn't wait to read Evergreen! This book definitely didn't disappoint and it made me like this series even more.

The romance between Ash and Fin is SO sweet! I was rooting for them to be together all throughout this book. Even though they were apart, you could just tell my by their phone conversations that they both truly love each other and would do anything to be together. They hit some bumps along the way..but in the

Jumping back into the lives of Fin and Ash in the world of Natatoria was like coming home. Some may say like a ship pulling into port. Fin's overwhelming charisma (which had me laughing at moments) along with Ash's tenacity and spunk truly endear me to their story and tribulations. The second book in the series is very well-paced and kept the pages turning. Every chapter revealed a new incite into the plot, characters, and facts in regard to life as a mer. I was happy with the amount of action a ...more

Evergreen, Book #2 in the Mer Tales saga by Brenda Pandos returns us to the lives of Ashlyn and Finley, a human and Mer, as they endure the trials of separation soon after their romance began.
In Book #1 (Everblue) a magical kiss created a promise that linked hearts with a binding and deep love. As we travel through the pages of Book #2 we are ensconced into their lives. Ash continues to go through the normal teenaged woes of being in high school, keeping up with her position on the swim team, ha

There MUST be some sort of "Mer Mojo" in this book because once I opened it, the covers of my Kindle were glued to my hands. I had promised myself that I would take it one chapter at a time but that went by the boards quickly and I wanted to send my wife over to her mother's for the week-end so I could read this in one marathon sitting. No food. No naps. The only time I'd stop would be for bathroom calls. Fortunately, none of that happened . . . for the most part. I don't know HOW Brenda Pandos ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of mermaid stories and good fantasy books!
Evergreen is the second book in Brenda Pandos' fabulous and gorgeously imagined Mer Tales. I absolutely adored the first book, Everblue, and was literally counting the days to the release of Evergreen. Brenda Pandos' mermaids and mermen are truly extraordinary and insanely fun to read about. I knew I would love Evergreen just as much as I loved Everblue. I knew this book would be a huge treat. And I knew I would stay up all night reading it, desperate to soak up every delicious detail of Pandos ...more

Oh Evergreen, you know how to win a girl over. I am not sure where to begin on how wonderful this sequel was. Evergreen in no way, shape or form came close too having the sequel syndrome. This sequel was its on entity and passed with flying colors. Before you continue reading my review, I ask that if you have not read Everblue, to please head to amazon or and download it on your ereader. We are talking only $0.99 on Amazon right now. You will not regret starting this series. There are a f ...more

I enjoy all things Mer but I absolutely loved this book! Everblue left off with some crazy stuff going down in Natatoria; Tatchi being left behind because of the bassface Azor forcing her promise, Fin and his parents escaping with the aid of their band of ferrymen, Fin proposing to Ash with a red stone for his ginger girl, and Fin, leaving Ash behind, taking a family road trip to Florida to escape evil mermen. So now we continue this adventure that takes place over a span of 11days...slightly le ...more

What a great book. I loved reading more about the background and lost princess of Natatoria. There are some crazy plot twists that have you reeling while trying to figure out what is going to happen next! I cannot find what happens to Ashlyn and Finn. I can't wait to find out what happens to Tatiana as well. Great book!!

Brenda Pandos did it again! I want more of Ash and Fin!!! The Talisman series was one of my favorite sets before this and now this one is surpassing that as my favorite! I thought the first book was awesome but this one was even better. This set is so different than anything I have read before. I enjoy learning about the world of merpeople as much as I enjoy the romance of Ash and Fin and everything they go through just to be together. This book is beautifully written and gives you a vivid pictu ...more

I really love this series. These are the first books I've read by Brenda Pandos and I am going to by her other books based on these. I read this book in one day because I could not put it down. I enjoy the relationship between Ash and Fin and I like that a kiss means so much to the Mer. So many books rush to sex and Brenda Pandos has not done this.

I am torn with this book. I loved the first book and was hoping that the second book would not disappoint, but I found it kind of lacking. It was pretty slow for me. I mean don't get me wrong the ending was great and I loved the twist but other than that it was just king of blah. I am really excited about the 3rd book and can't wait for it to come out.

Following Everblue, Evergreen is the second novel in Brenda Pandos' Mer Tales series. There are currently two more books in this series, Everlost and Evermore.

At the safe house, Fin meets the lost princess, Galadriel. She ran away from home, and has a number of boys attached to her. But who is her real mate? Where is he

I had high expectations for the second installment, but the whole clingy emotional behavior of the lovers pissed me off. Not one paragraph without mentioning how much they miss each other, but damn, throughout the whole book I thought Ash was PMSing. The girl can cry. And the lies each told made me think, “Come on, people! A true line from time to time is appreciated too!”. Aside from that frustration, the plot was evolving (aside these two clingine

I really enjoyed this series over all. It was a quick read but did not feel like a short read. There is a line in the third book that sums it up nicely, a girl can be the hero ya know? This is a very good series that shows how strong young ladies can be when they put their minds to it. My 12 year old and 9 year old daughters really enjoy it as well.

The characters are strong, well written but still very real and flawed and easy to relate to. The scenes that are described are amazing and wonderfu

Evergreen - great read

Evergreen is book 2 in Mer Tales series by Brenda Pandos continuing the love story of Ash and Fin. I really liked the pacing of the story and the introduction of the new characters. There were some characters I hated but hey what do you expect, they're villains! There was a revelation I wasn't expecting but it made since regarding the mom/daughter relationship with Ash and her mom. I recommend this to readers who love YA Fantasy with a sweet love story and action. Looking
