Liked the first one more, but this is still a good read!
After that cliff-hanger in Of Poseidon I just needed to get my hand on this book. And believe me I'm not disappointed. Somehow on the run i.e. kidnapped by her mother, Emma and the recently revealed lost Princess of Poseidon are attempting to evade discovery. For Nalia, this means keeping her daughter safe from what is sure to be a trap. For Emma, this means an unnecessary waste of time as before Galen and Grom eventually find them. As long as Galen wasn't lying of course...
This book starts off at a medium-pace that is maintained throughout the book, where big revelations are made and dealt with, big conspiracies are unveiled and demolished, and the questions of Emma's Half-Breed acceptance in the Syrena community are answered once and for all. I felt this book wrapped up pretty nicely, not leaving me craving the next and final book, but also keeping me interested enough to read it and follow the lives of Galen and Emma just a little while longer.

I have really mixed feelings about this series. I really love Galen and Emma and the world that they live in but something about this book was bothering me. I couldn't figure out what it was until I finished Of Neptune. My only problem with this book is the plot which means I didn't like a big portion of the book because the book is about the plot. I don't know how to say this without spoiling anything, but basically for the first half of the book, Emma and Galen get separated and they are trying to get back to each other. The second half of the book was just about something that I honestly didn't care about. I felt like the problems that the characters were experiencing were drawn out excessively and it made it boring. The book was still suspenseful but it lost its touch because everything was just taking too long. I was really hoping to like this book more.

Of Trition was really good!!! I finished it a while back, and I literally couldn't put it down (unless someone forced me to)! I loved the romance between Galen and Emma (so cute!), and I absolutely CANNOT WAIT for Of Neptune!!

This series is amazing. I couldnt put Of Triton down! I finished it so fast that I may have to reread it just to relive the story. I hope Miss Banks continues writing, I am absolutely in love with the characters she has created!

OMG this book was AMAZING!!!! Of Poseidon was incredible and Of Triton was just as awesome!!! There were alot of OMG moments in the book. I couldn't put the book down because I had to find out what happened. Galen and Emma make the cutest couple ever! Anna Banks is a wonderful author and I can't wait until Of Neptune I think it's called comes out!

This was a nice follow up book to the first novel. Not as much dynamic between Galen and Emma, but I did like the fact that more background info was given. This book focused more on how a family is family through thick and thin. Emma's grandfather was an awesome character to add and I really enjoyed this book!!!!! Can't wait for another?!?!?

Ah, the bonding power of tangled hair and dancing whales. -Emma's thoughts

"I, for one, do not believe she has the Gift of Poseidon," Rayna says gleefully. "If you have the Gift of Poseidon, make those hammerheads attack Jagen where he stands." -Rayna

Galen is horrified to find that his fin now spans from the top of his head to well below his waist. It really does look like a whale tail. -Galan's thoughts

Galen and Grom exchange an amused look, and I can't help but think they're hypocrites. At any given moment, I could reduce Galen to a cooing mess, and I'm certain my mom would have the same effect on Grom. -Emma

"She's a Half-Breed, Galen." Mom's head snaps toward him. "She's my daughter," she says slowly. "Are you saying my daughter's not good enough for your brother?" -Grom and Nalia
