In this sequel to OF POSEIDON, Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death.
As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known?
Of Triton pick up right where Of Poseidon left off, confronting Emma's mom about her secret. The first few opening chapters a quite climatic and gets you sucked back into the story. As always Anna Banks writes a well written book jammed packed with humour that I sure will be a laugh or at least a smile to your face.
I loved the romance that Galen and Emma had in Of Poseidon and even though they may be apart for a large potion of the book, I loved the romance in this instalment even more. There's more commitment from them that will melt your heart. I can't wait to see what the next step in their relationship will be.
As much as I wanted to absolutely love this novel as much as I did the first I just couldn't. To me Of Triton seemed like a filler book; something small to give us because there needed to be a book released in 2013 but with no real progression in the plot. The book physically is very small and not a whole lot goes of, there is some pretty dramatic scenes that do make up for it though.
Even though Of Triton wasn't as good as Of Poseidon I still love this series and highly recommend it to anyone. I really look forward to reading more in this unique mermaid series.
