Immerse is the third and final chapter in the Mer Chronicles. I like mythical romance stories and I’ve enjoyed this series. This is a continuous story and although book 3 contains catch up information I would not recommend it as a standalone. Immerse is slow off the mark as it begins and I think this is due to the background refresher. I read the previous books last year so I liked having the catch-up, but I thought there was a little too much.

EMERGE gave a thrilling love story; SUBMERGE let us delve deeper into Tobie Easton’s meticulously built underwater world. Now, with IMMERSE, the triumphant conclusion to the Mer trilogy, Easton challenges the reader’s assumptions, letting us see Lia, the great heroine who saved the Mer, from the perspective of her enemy, Melusine. As the two characters play off one another in alternating point of view chapters, the strengths and flaws of both are thrown into sharp relief, reminding us how easy i ...more

I have wanted to read this series for a long time. I do believe I read the first book a couple years ago, but I have absolutely no memory of it. None whatsoever. So getting to read it from start to finish was a necessity. So, here's a brief recap from the first two books in the series.
In the first book, EMERGE, Lia Nautilus is forced to live topside. Everything about her is kept a secret, but she has her difficulties. With a cute human-boy involved, what girl wouldn't have trouble?

I loved books 1 and 2 of this series so I jumped at the chance to read and review the conclusion to this series. It was most definitely a good decision. Not only was it a great continuation and satisfying conclusion to a very enjoyable series but it was also a enjoyable and engaging story in its own right.

Book 3, Immerse, starts a day before Lia's parent's are due to be crowned King and Queen of Mer, Lia and Clay are seeing each other in secret and Caspian has been visiting Melusine in the not q

A noble end to a story we all know and love. I’m truly going to miss Clay and Lia. So many characters grew on me in this one. I do wish there was more, though. This is a series I could read forever!

Ending a series can be very emotional for both the author and reader. Plot threads to tie up, final goodbyes to characters and a sense of ‘there’s nothing left after this’. I’m happy to say that Tobie Easton does a good job with this, and left me wanting even more. Spoilers for the previous two books are in this review.

We start shortly after the end of Submerge, where Lia and Clay are trying to make him Mer per his request, Lia’s parents are being crowned and Mel is going through therapy based o

I know this was meant to be the final installment of the Mer Chronicles, but I feel like there could absolutely be more! I loved every moment!

This was definitely a stunning ending to a great series!!! I can't believe Lia and Clay got their happily ever after!!!!😍😍 Lia fought hard for what she wanted and for what she believed in! Caspian was an amazing help to Melusine...I had no idea what to expect when I heard this book would be from her POV as well. It definitely changed my perspective about her. She pushed herself as a character and struggled with her inner demons. And while they may not be completely at rest, Melusi ...more

A Spellbinding Conclusion | Review of ‘Immerse’ (Mer Chronicles #3) | Originally reviewed on Cyn's Workshop

What an incredible conclusion to Easton’s wonderful Mer Chronicles series that takes the tale of The Little Mermaid and expands upon it. It’s a wonderful read how in the way that it connects to the original tale, reenacting it in its own way. But the more riveting part of the story is the world-building. Easton pours her heart and imagination into making this novel come to life beautifully.

Holy wow, this book is SO GOOD!!!

I absolutely loved the first two books, and this one might be my favorite. In fact, it's one of my favorite books of all time.

The depth that Easton brings to her story and characters is mindblowing. I won't give away spoilers, but the way she used alternating POVs in this book is nothing short of brilliant. A lot of writers have great ideas but need work on the execution. Easton, however, does it all--amazing ideas AND amazing execution.

So many of my favorite cha

Official Blurb:
Easton's incandescent finale to her Mer Chronicles sparkles like the glittering scales of a mermaid's tail. When you dive into her world under the sea, you won’t want to come up for air until you’ve read every last magical word. Fans will love this final installment of the Mer Chronicles!

Less official but just as true:
You need this series in your life because a) mermaid/human adventures and plot twists you didn't see coming b) gorgeous under the sea imagery and world building c) c

Author Tobie Easton emerged on the YA mermaid scene with her debut Emerge, an engaging tale (tail?) about mermaids living among humans because the famed Little Mermaid—yeah, that one—caused a curse, taking away their immortality. Main character and narrator Lia Nautilus is a direct descendent of that mermaid, and her adventure was both fun fantasy and teen story. And like any good YA novel, she makes mistakes and break the rules along the way both to be with her crush—a human boy named Clay—and ...more
Tobie Easton’s Mer Chronicles have never been more than fluffy tween escapism, and they’re not meant to be. Immerse, the series’ supposed conclusion—and I say “supposed” because there’s a bit of sequel bait tacked onto the end, even though the story is mostly wrapped up—might be the most predictable and safe of all three books, which, again, isn’t a bad thing. These books are middle-school mermaid daydreams that don’t suffer from appalling stupidity and have enough self-awareness and care placed ...more

I had trouble keeping interested in the beginning. It was a bit slow and wasn't really going anywhere. The main part was really Mel's transition and her developing relationship with Caspian. The book did pick up at the end so I was glad I stuck it out. Ended well. ...more

A great ending to the trilogy. I really enjoyed Melusine’s POV much more than Lia. If you like mermaid books, give these books a try.

I love Toby Easton's style of writing! the love story and the twist in turns in her books is great! Its never predictable and always a great story!

Month9books was kind enough to send me an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This by no means altered my opinion on the final installment of this trilogy.

I fell in love with Lia’s world back in 2016 and was introduced to a wonderful and fresh take on mermaids. Mermaids were once immortal, but it was ripped from them (quite literally!) when the “original” little mermaid made a choice that changed the lives of every mer-creature. Now mortal, the older mermaids died instantly if t

I felt like things took a little longer to get started with this one, so I had a bit of a hard time getting into it at first. We don't just get Lia's perspective this time around. Melusine is also telling this part of the story, and I really enjoyed getting her perspective. In general, the characters in this book, and whole series really, are so well fleshed out. I really felt like I was getting to know them. This has been a fantastic trilogy, and I'm sad

LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book! I'm not usually one who needs or wants to read the villain's perspective, so I initially wasn't sure I'd enjoy reading both Lia's and Melusine's point of view after what Melusine had done in the previous books, but as I kept reading, Easton skillfully won me over to her side. I really just wanted to stay in the author's version of the Mer world as long as possible because it's so gorgeous and well-rendered, but I couldn't stop turning the pages. Such a satisfying end ...more
