Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Of Poseidon (Of Poseidon, #1)Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Synopsis:
"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" -Goodreads.com


My Review:
Considering that it was another YA book that had the romantic paranormal clichés to grapple with, I actually loved it! The ending is unexpected and I hate that it ended that way! Told in the perspectives of both Emma and Galen, the book consumed my interest from the start and made the book impossible to put down. I've never read any other books involving mermai-- uh, I mean Syrena and so this was a different experience for me when it came down to subject matter, as well as the problems the characters have to face. The subtle sense of humor mixed with the tingles of romance created a pleasant reading atmosphere as I drove through the pages. I thought Emma's character was especially delightful and was well rounded in description through her expressions, actions and situation handling and I cannot wait to read more about her (and Galen, Rayna & Toraf) in the next book.

Quote:
"Morning Tide makes a great companion when you don't want to be around people. It soothes and comforts and doesn't ask for anything. But the sun does. The higher it gets, the more I am reminded that nothing stops time. There is no escaping it. It slips by no matter if you're looking at a driftwood grandfather clock or the sun." (33)
