Review: Of Poseidon

Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy #1)

Author: Anna Banks
Pages: 324
Release Date: May 22, 2012
Feiwel & Friends

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.
 My Thoughts
Of Poseidon is an enjoyable book for readers who like lighthearted humor and romance. . Although there were some parts where it had me get second-hand embarrassment, there were some dull moments in the beginning. It wasn't really exciting until the end of the book, where the puzzles actually clicked together and the author left us with a cliffhanger.

The main character, Emma, had personality changes within a couple a pages between each other. At first, she was sweet and nice, then goes to ill-tempered and stubborn, but I liked Emma as a main character. I really liked Galen's character. Galen is loyal, sweet, and caring. Although, he comes off a bit overprotective over Emma and Rayna (which is understandable). I loved their romance in the book!

Overall, this book was an okay mermaid story to me. I would recommend it to those who love YA romance and mermaid books.
