Submerge (Mer Chronicles #2)
by Tobie Easton
Publication Date: September 12, 2017
Now that Lia and Clay’s love has broken the Little Mermaid’s curse, everything has changed. Will Lia’s family remain on land, leading the only life she and her sisters have ever known, or will they move below the waves, to the sparkling new capital city? Lia is adamant about staying on land with Clay for her senior year. But at Melusine and her father’s trial, new revelations threaten what Lia holds most dear.
The verdict will shake Lia’s whole world, calling into question her future with Clay, her feelings for Caspian, and the fate of all Merkind. As she wonders who to trust, Lia sets out on a treacherous path that will lead her away from her sheltered Malibu home to a remote and mysterious school for Mermaids—Mermaids who may hold the secret to ancient magic Lia can use to either get back all she’s lost or to embark on a thrilling and dangerous journey.
“You should get back,” he says, nodding up the winding path
toward my house. I punch in the security code, and he pushes
open the gate. It scrapes through the gravel until the opening is just
wide enough for him to step through. But he doesn’t. He stands
there, waiting under the white, bell-shaped blossoms of one of our
brugmansia trees. I place my hand over his on the iron gate as I
step in close. Clay brings his other hand up to my cheek, stroking it
with fingers calloused from his guitar strings, drawing me closer still.
His handsome features—so familiar and so astonishing—gleam in
the moonlight, then grow so near they’re indiscernible. I let my eyes
flutter shut. Let myself taste Clay’s lips against mine. Get lost in the
richness of every touch, every press of his tongue and graze of his
A suspiciously familiar, syrupy voice lurking in some hidden
crevice of my mind asks me if I really think I’m doing this right. If
maybe he’s comparing me to her. Surely she must have been a better
kisser. But I push that voice back into its dark cave as I wrap my arm
around Clay and he brings his hand back to cup my head, tangling
his fingers in my hair as my chest presses against his.
Finally, in a flurry of breathless, whispered goodbyes, our mouths
come together and apart, together and apart, until he slowly pulls
himself away and down the street. With one final flash of hazel and a
promise to see me in the morning, he disappears around the corner.
Later, after several hours of carefully smiling while catching up
with my parents, I lie in my sea sponge bed in the hidden grottos
beneath our house and try to sleep. As a layer of satiny salt water
covers me like a blanket, I force myself to replay tonight’s kiss instead
of imagining what risks the next few days will bring.
