I wasn't sure if I liked the idea of Kona not being with Tempest but when he ended up with her best friend I was so happy and excited to see that everything turned out to be the best for everyone
I loved this book, even though I wanted her to hook up with Kona. I loved the way miss/Mrs. Deebs created the book, she's really good at the way she phrases the words just right. I also would of wished for less cursing, but who's perfect, plus I'm miss goody too shoes anyway. Over all really good book!
This is the final book in this series and I am kind of sad to see it end. I have to say that I this is a series that I really loved but this time around Tempest annoyed me in some parts of the book with the way she seemed to act so timid and not like herself. I liked her character because she was always so strong and self assured. I found that she second guessed herself a lot this time around and it just seemed so out of character for her. This time around we meet up with Tempest and learn that she is up for the fight of her life. I liked that she tried to hard to have her human life and mermaid life and of course I was happy to see her back with Mark. I loved them together and that he was able to accept her for what she was and deal with the fact she might not always be around. It was great to see them together because they had such chemistry and genuine love for each other.
As the story goes on Tempest has to leave again to finally try to take down Tiamat. I was glad to see that Tempest decided to finally handle this issue and get it over with. What I was not pleased with is how much she let Kona and others stand up for her and seem to fight her battles. I was expecting her to be stronger I mean after all with what she had done to her family she should have been out for blood. This book had a fast pace and moved along pretty quickly and I was glad to see the action pick up and the battles to happen. Poor Tempest has some things that happen to her this time around that made me hurt for her and I hated to see her in those situations but she comes out of it fine and maybe a stronger person because of it.
Overall I think the author ended this series pretty well and wrapped everything up in a way that will make the readers happy. I loved seeing who Tempest ended up with as that was who I loved all along and it was fitting for them to end up together. I loved that Tempest got to continue to be true to herself and her family also. The characters all seem to resolve their issues and get their happily ever afters also.I would recommend this one to lovers of mermaid tales and who want to see how this story ends.
3.0 out of 5 starsDisappointing ending to a series that showed such promise.

Traveling back and forth between the sea and shore, Tempest is trying to have it all. She is trying to be there for her merpeople as the next in line for the throne under their aging merQueen, all while spending time with her family and long time boyfriend. She knows her happiness can’t last forever, and when Kona arrives to tell the news of the merQueen’s death, she leaves for the sea, this time forever. But returning to Coral Straights, she finds that ascending the throne isn’t as easy as she expected it to be when an old enemy returns and makes it clear they will rule the kingdom, with or without her. As she gathers her forces and prepares for the battle to end all battles, Tempest is losing faith that they can win. Even if they can, she isn’t certain she will live through it to see their victory. I knew this love triangle would be my undoing with my love for the characters. Tempest showed more strength here than ever before, but she also made choices that left me wanting. She kept choosing Mark, always, even when she needed to back up Kona in a way that had nothing to do with their personal relationships. She was clearly not meant to be merQueen when she couldn’t stay diplomatic about anything for longer than a second when Mark was around. And the romance angle for Kona in this book? No. Try again. It was completely out of left field and was basically a cop-out. People loved Kona, give him something to be happy about. I was almost insulted with how things went.
The story wasn’t as good here either. It fell flat for me. Really flat. The whole thing was marred with teenage drama, and Tempest’s time in the dungeons were actually the most entertaining parts of the book. Before she left Mark and her family and up until she met back up with Kona, I was really enjoying things. The love triangle killed any story that was there. Even the ending lacked impact because her gorilla love interests had to pound their chest and fly off the handle. It brought the entire climax down for me and left me horribly underwhelmed. The final battle was boring, which wasn’t what I expected.
The series showed such promise, even with it’s flaws and I just did not enjoy this ending. This book killed the series for me. While I still feel it makes for a nice read, if you are looking for something amazing, skip it. You will only be disappointed.
