Do you like hot guys, shark attacks, romance, and a bit of a mystery? Well then, look no farther then Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. I loved this book! I found Of Poseidon to be a refreshing break from dystopia, vampires and darker YA.
Emma is on vacation when she runs into a gorgeous guy. I mean WHAM like literally runs into him. This is one of my favorite scenes, because it’s not only funny, but something I can see happening to me. Only the gorgeous guy isn't a guy, but Galen the prince of the Syrena. When Emma finds out, she of course, thinks mermaids, but Syrenas are descendants of Triton and Poseidon who were Syrena generals and not gods. Emma can't believe her luck when she embarrasses herself in front of a gorgeous stranger. But after a tragic accident, Galen realizes that Emma might not just be some clumsy human and decides to show up in her life to find out.
I also recommend reading Legacy Lost, a short prequel novella that answers a few questions about the characters in Of Poseidon.
Anna's writing is witty and will have you smiling. I can't wait for Of Triton, the sequel to Of Poseidon. Anna Banks is going on tour this summer, if you get a chance to meet her, tell her I said hi!
Audio Review: This is the first time I have listed to anything by Rebecca Gibel and she does a good job. She has narrated a number of novels including Splintered by A. G. Howard and Undeadly by Michele Vail.
