Book Review: Of Triton (Of Poseidon #2) by Anna Banks

Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she's a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm. Syrena law states all Half-Breeds should be put to death.

As if that's not bad enough, her mother's reappearance in the Syrena world turns the two kingdoms--Poseidon and Triton--against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen's request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself--and her Gift--to save a people she's never known?

Once again, Anna Banks infuses Emma and Galen's points of view with humor, intrigue, and waves of romance.

After I read Of Poseidon I was soooo excited to read Of Triton!  When I started this book it was like a whole scene was skipped! The first thing that came across my mind was did I skip a book? If you are feeling  the same way then FEAR NOT! An explanation is on its way! Although this book isn’t quite as good as the mind-blowing-heart-stopping-so-amazing-it-makes-you-want-to-cry-tears-of-joy first book, it IS mind-blowing-heart-stopping-good. (Sadly no happy tears were shed). 
 This book answered a lot of questions from the first book (the ending was like OH MY GRACIOUS IT’S OVER! I WANT MORE, BOOK!) And Of Triton gave you more of a view of the fundamentals of their mermaid-society-thing. One of the things that bugged me was that they didn’t figure out the answer to the whole who-is-Nalia-thing until this book! (If you don’t know what I’m talking about then just skip ahead) It was one of those things where you’re just sitting there saying “THE ANSWER IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! WHAT ARE YOU STUPID?” then they figure it out a gazillion pages later and you’re thinking “I could have told you that a loooong time ago!” (Fictional mermaids now days, getting more fishy-brained by the minute) But I still loved this book and am anxiously awaiting for the third to come out.
