As we kick off our June Book of the Month feature on Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, we want to remind you what we loved so much about it! Here’s a look back at what we said in our review:
I haven’t loved a mermaid story this much since devouring L.K. Madigan’s The Mermaid’s Mirror two years ago. Of Poseidon is a thrilling new addition to the realm of paranormal romance, written with a dashing blend of humor and intrigue. It’s a true gift for an author to balance high stakes drama and intense romance with a witty sense of comedy, yet that’s exactly what Banks has pulled off. Of Poseidon is funny and seductive and page-turning all at the same time.
Of Poseidon is a stunning new addition to the young adult literature shelves, and readers (like me) will be anxiously awaiting the sequel with bated breath.
You can read an excerpt from Of Poseidon for yourself here! Here’s the full synopsis:
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.
