Galen, a Syrena prince, searches land for a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. It’s while Emma is on vacation at the beach that she meets Galen. Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen's not fully convinced that Emma's the one he's been looking for. That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom. He needs her help--no matter what the risk. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks is an amazing debut novel about mermaids, fish talkers, and royalty. It would lead me on into really believing one thing and then BOOM! Twist! You find out the thing you were believing is entirely wrong. It kept me on my toes the entire time. No exaggeration.
Emma is a hilarious heroine. She's funny and kind of rude. The first time Emma enters Galen's home, she gets into a fist fight with Galen's sister. Emma is a strong character who is very opinionated and doesn't like to be told what to do. She'll do what you tell her if you ask. But you have to ask. As Galen finds out later in the book.
And Galen! I liked every part of Galen. He was hilarious and I loved him. He's such a sweetheart! He's always contemplating kidnapping Emma, but not in a creepy stalker way. I promise! Just trust me there is a reason; read the book to find out. Galen and Emma were always bickering and teasing each other. It was cute and very entertaining to read.
As a thirteen year old who doesn't read very often, Of Poseidon was exactly the thing to get me reading without being distracted. I read it in a freaking day! It was amazing and I definitely recommend it to people who love to read as well as people who are reluctant to pick up a book.
