Of Triton by Anna Banks

Of Triton by Anna BanksOf Triton (The Syrena Legacy #2)
Author: Anna Banks
Category: Young Adult
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Release Date: 5-28-13
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? – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full confession:  I had a note on my calendar to request this ARC because I could not wait to read OF TRITON!  OF POSEIDON was one of my favorite “mermaid” books of 2012 and OF TRITON did not disappoint!  The cliff hangar at the end of OF POSEIDON was cruel and unusual punishment for readers and you will be glad to know that the story picks up right where it left off.  The twist that Anna Banks threw at us was brilliant and I loved getting the back story about Emma’s mom.  It was so different than the mom we met in book one and I loved that everyone changed so much.  (Anyone who looks for good character development in second books will be very pleased.)  OF TRITON had some extremely clever and funny writing that had me laughing out loud more than once.

Along with the very funny writing, there are moments of darkness that provides depth and contrast to the story.  Galen and Emma are in real danger and I promise that you will be laughing one moment and then finding yourself biting your nails the next.  The action sequences in and out of the water were nothing less than heart-pounding.  Be prepared, though, because there was one twist that I did not see coming and I’m still in denial that it’s true!  I love recommending this series to people because I really think that it holds a lot of surprises.  It’s a mermaid story with hot merguys and snappy dialogue, yes, but it’s also a well-paced action/adventure with plenty of one liners and plot twists to keep everyone happy.  I think that fans of this series will be very satisfied with this sequel and I am waiting impatiently for book three!!
I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

  1. You moved to WordPress! Congrats! I know we were briefly talking about it on twitter like a week or two ago so I’m glad it went smoothly! I’ve been thinking about doing it this summer.

    Anyways, I have yet to read a mermaid book. I’m not sure why I’m holding back because I loved Splash and The Little Mermaid. lol But I think this may be the series to try it out sometime? I’m really curious about this twist you mentioned! 🙂

  2. Yay! I’m so glad to hear the sequel lived up to your expectations, and that there was plenty of humor. I really loved Of Poseidon, and that cliffy was brutal. Can’t wait to read this now. Wonderful review (oh and PS love the new design!).

  8. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
