Her survival is not only dependent upon the loyalty of her friends, but also on her acceptance of a life that she had so adamantly tried to escape.Promises is the first book of The Syrenka Series trilogy following Eviana and her friends through the perils of growing up in a discrete world that inherently threatens human society
Wow what would you do when you have to choose between love and fate? When you are forced to choose between the life you have always known and the life that you actually want. Promise is a story about Eviana a mermaid who is betrothed to another mermaid named Kain. Kain has been infatuated with Eviana since child hood and cannot wait to start a new life with Eviana. The only problem, she is in love with someone else. Actually this is a forbidden type of love because Eviana has given her heart to a selkie- Brendan. Eviana has chosen to abandon her life with Kain and run away with Brendan, but when a turn of events head to the bad side and Brendan's life is in danger, Eviana has no other choice but turn to her former betrothed for help. Can she get the help needed before it's too late for Brendan? During her quest secrets are unfolded and a new war is on the verge - the only thing in it's way at this moment is the clueless Eviana. Action, romance and some laughs Promise is a story of anything but that- more likes broken promises. I give it two thumbs up

Merfolk, selkies, and water sprites work together to save their kind, only in this final battle, not everyone will survive.In the striking series conclusion, Eviana will learn the true meaning of power, sacrifice, and love.
Wow the conclusion to this great romantic trilogy. What more can you ask for? Thrilling, suspense with action, forged alliances, and betrayal happening almost around every corner. Deep secrets an unveiled, wars fought, some unexpected tragedies and an ending that will have me smiling and crying at the same time.
In this finale we continue with the story being told from the POV of Eviana and Kain. Eviana has just been captured by her newfound father, and just found out that she has been betrothed while preparing for an impending war.
Her father's true intentions are not too clear- I would say he was a bit on the psychotic side. When she thought she had made up her mind on her feelings for Graham she starts second-guessing The time is now to pick your side, do you want to be a part of the legacy? As everything comes crashing down Eviana faces the toughest decisions she has ever had to make. War is here. Kain refuses to loose Eviana, but does that mean self-sacrifice? Great read great conclusion to this trilogy.
