Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs

Fins Are Forever picks up right where Forgive My Fins ended. Lily is still doing the human thing. In fact, she'll be doing it forever. She loves Quince and therefore doesn't plan to bond with anyone else. In a little less than three weeks, Lily will be 18. As an unbonded royal, she will renounce her title and future as queen. Now her focus is on the future--her human future to be specific--graduating, making good on the SAT, and getting accepted to college. Her bratty cousin Dosinia arrives and throws a wrench into the works. Before Lily knows what's happening, Doe is making eyes at Lily's former crush Brody. Tellin, a prince from a neighboring kingdom also comes for a visit. Lily thought she had her life figured out. Now, she's not so sure.

What I thought: What I liked most about Forgive My Fins doesn't really have any place in this book. Quince and Lily are in love. Ergo, the tension is gone. Fins Are Forever was still an enjoyable book. Lily's interactions with Doe are particularly great. (I love my sister now, but boy was she a pill when we were growing up!) Again with the cliffhanger ending. The third Fins book will be out next summer according to Tera's blog. A title is in the works, but not definite.
