Synopsis:

Immerse is the spellbinding and breathless final installment of the Mer Chronicles series where descendants of the Little Mermaid must face deadly magic, shifting alliances, and the dangers of forbidden love.

Lia can’t wait for her parents’ coronation. Now living in the sparkling palace beneath the waves, she sneaks off to Malibu whenever possible to see Clay. Tucked away in an abandoned seaside mansion, Lia and Clay devise a plan to ensure they can stay together forever.

But when an old enemy resurfaces and Lia is restricted to the palace for the safety of all Merkind, she and Clay are ripped apart once more.

She fears not only for Clay, but for her best friend Caspian, who seems to be swimming down a dangerous path. He has invited the conniving Melusine to the coronation ball, convinced she’s capable of change. And no matter how hard Lia fights it, showing up on Caspian’s arm is just the start of Melusine’s insidious return to her life.

With threats Below growing more ominous by the day and a powerful ancient ritual looming, soon the two girls can’t escape each other. As their fates grow increasingly intertwined, Melusine might be the only one who can help Lia find the answers she desperately needs to save everyone she loves and to achieve her happily ever after. But can Lia trust her?

Excerpt:

The library doors are my favorite in the castle. Unlike all the other doors, made of sculpted sea glass in colors ranging from pastels to deep jewel tones, the doors to the varellska (Mermese for library) are made of the coated wood of a sunken Victorian ship. Mounted to the frame between the double doors is a handcrafted mermaid from the ship’s prow, her wooden hair blowing around her in carved curls, her face proud. She puts a smile on my own face as I open one of the doors and swim into the room that may hold the answer I need among its secrets.

Shelves stretch up the walls high above my head, each lined with shells of every conceivable size and pattern, from short volumes of poetry in tiny sundial shells to hours-long research tomes in giant diadema shells. Between the shells stand various treasures for decoration: an antique spyglass, a bronze-rimmed compass, an old brass lantern. I inhale the scent of shell polish and whalebone styluses.

I’ve come on the librarian’s day off and have the whole place to myself. I swim up to the highest shelves, where there rests a large, gilded starfish, the symbol of balanced justice. What’s happened to Clay at the hands and fins of Merkind has been anything but just. I’m hoping that means justice is on our side throughout our quest to make him a Merman. I rub the starfish for luck. “Help me find a way,” I murmur into the varellska’s quiet stillness.

Tobie’s Favorite Movies:

Shakespeare in Love

The forbidden romance! And the costumes (I love fashion)! The movie includes
its own brand of humor punctuated by all the drama and beauty of some of my
favorite scenes from Romeo and Juliet.

Clueless

Did I mention I love fashion? And witty dialogue? Also (like both Cher
Horowitz and Mer Chronicles’ protagonist, Lia), I’m a California girl.

Legally Blonde

Like Cher Horowitz, Elle Woods is a feminine, fashion-loving, good-hearted
character who subverts everyone’s expectations of her with intelligence and
strength. Plus, I can’t watch this movie without laughing, and I love how the first
scene and the last scene parallel each other, bringing the movie full circle.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

I watched this film countless times when I was little. For me, the main
character’s spunk paired with the secret, alluring romance makes this a classic
that endures.

Dirty Dancing

Sigh. Secret, forbidden romance. Seeing a pattern? It’s funny, it’s smart, it’s
swoon-worthy.

Now and Then

For me, this film is the quintessential celebration of friendship. Each character is
so well-drawn, and the bonds they share are unbreakable. Plus, who didn’t want
to try stuffing her bra with pudding balloons after watching this movie?

Pride and Prejudice (the 2005 film and the 1995 miniseries)

Witty dialogue, multifaceted sister relationships, and—of course—Darcy.
DARCY.

The Craft

My middle school obsession, complete with witchcraft, complicated friendships,
nineties fashion, and fantastic quotable lines.

Saved!

So funny! This one is such a great character study because every single person
really comes of age in her own way here. I also love the different ways each one
struggles to make sense of community expectations.

The Secret Garden

A childhood favorite. The setting is a character, and the garden transports you to
an enchanting, beautiful world.
