Not quite as good as the first book in the series but not a bad read. The twists were quite good, and I really wasn’t expecting one of them.

This book wasn't really great. The story was unique (I guess), but I didn't really enjoy it.

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.' Please check your homonyms before you get a book published. As an avid reader, I find these errors incredibly annoying.

And the names of the royal mermaids. It's pretty obviou

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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!!

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.

One of the most enthralling series I've ever read. It grabs you from the start and completely wraps you up in the story until you can't put it down. There's no way I won't read all four books. Absolutely wonderful reading, you feel as if the characters are part of your life.

Author Brenda Pandos lives in California with her husband and two energetic boys. After her release of EVERMORE late 2015, she suffered from a stroke. While she's had a miraculous recovery, the part of her brain she'd used to write fiction with hasn't returned yet.

At 18-months post-stroke, she's decided to start working on her memoir to tell her story. It's very tiring for her and slow going, but
