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 . . .Anna Banks' Of Poseidon was one of the funnest and funniest books I've read in a long time! Though the cover may look like a epic, serious paranormal saga (which it is at some points) it is mostly just a bloody hilarious book that should not be read while eating,. No, seriously. My ARC has lots of food stains because of uncontrollable laughing fits while reading. It is just not a smart idea!
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.
Emma was a character that I couldn't help but love! I wanted to marry her (apparently the government doesn't look kindly on marrying fictional characters though) when I found out she was a Titanic buff ( I freaking love Titanic), and she was just generally awesome! Plus, her narrative was so dang funny!
Galen is the kind of love interest that you other love or hate. He's a little clueless to the way the human world works which causes him to sometimes be mean. Personally I found that endearing, but others might want to strangle him!
The plot in Of Poseidon was really fast paced and there was never a dull moment! It was always entertaining to read!
Banks' writing style was really fun! It was easy to read, but didn't belittle the audience by using small words *cough* like Stephanie Meyer did *cough, cough*.
I also really liked to read about the Syrena, and their history! It was a unique take on the mermaid legend!
Of Poseidon was an awesome start to the Syrena series! I look forward to more from Anna Banks!
Cover Comments: Awesome cover! I love the water, and she is so PALE!
