Book Description:

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...

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.

Who doesn’t love a good mermaid tale? Sorry, Syrena tale? Not only was the cover of this book stunning, the plot was also just as beautifully crafted and presented. From the first page to the last I could not get enough of the refreshing characters.

From the volcano that is Emma to the handsome and lush Galen, Of Poseidon is a world I would give anything to be apart of. Anna Banks has a remarkable gift for story telling – the first two chapters alone evoked such a strong reaction from me that the person sitting next to me asked if I was ok.

Of Poseidon isn’t some typical supernatural teenager love story set in the ocean. Bejewelled with vivid characters and fascinating folklore, this book is rich with a plot so alluring I was left heartbroken when I consumed the last page.

With a cliff-hanger that will have you screaming rage, I can barely wait the hours until it’s sequel Of Triton is to be released.  If you love mermaid folklore, or if you are after an escape to a striking world full of watery possibilities than you cannot pass this book by.

I gave Of Poseidon 5 out of 5.

Author Bio:

New York Times Bestselling author of The Syrena Legacy series.
Grew up in a town called Niceville. No, seriously. I graduated from Niceville High School. So did J Lo's second husband. And the guy that plays Aqua Man on Smallville dated my best friend. Now I indulge my tendency to lie by writing the lies down and selling them to publishers. Well actually my agent sells it, so she's an accomplice to lies. One of my lies is called OF POSEIDON. The sequel is called OF TRITON. I'm still making up the third lie, OF NEPTUNE. And um. I also write adult fiction under pen name Anna Scarlett. One of the adult lies is DEGREES OF WRONG. That is all.
