Review: Of Triton by Anna Banks

Of Triton (Of Poseidon, #2)Of Triton by Anna Banks
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Release date: May 28, 2013
Purchase: Amazon / Barnes and Noble
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?

My thoughts:
Of Triton was an awesome addition to this series.  It was fun and totally kept the wonderful pacing that its predecessor Of Poseidon delivered.

This sequel takes place right where Of Poseidon left off.  Nalia, Emmas mom, is on the run thinking that Galen is trying to arrest her for killing his brother Grom.  When Grom and Nalia come face to face for the first time in many many years their love is instantly rekindled.  This isn't all fun and games though, Grom is already mated and with Emma being a Half Breed everyone knows their journey back to the waters won't be an easy one especially with a rebellion going on.

This book was like I said all kinds of fun. Is it amazing beyond belief no, but it was just what I was looking for and sometimes we as readers just need some good ole fashioned fluff. Of Triton wasn't all fluff, but it wasn't filled with drama drama drama.  There were so many moments between Emma and the cast of characters that were just perfect.  I enjoyed the underwater scenes and I really enjoyed seeing the tribunal happen since it gave us a look into the Syrena history.  I am honestly very intrigued by this world that has been created.

So while this wasn't something that will forever be known as the greatest work of fiction, it definitely left a mark on me and I will definitely pick up the next installment.  I have absolutely no idea what the third book could be about since this one ends in a good place and honestly that is half the fun.  Anna Banks has created a fun world that I can't wait to read more about!
