Book Review: Of Triton by Anna Banks

book reviews banner2All the sexy humor and romantic drama that Anna Banks introduced in her debut novel Of Poseidon returns in full force for the second half of her YA mermaid saga with Of Triton.

of tritonIn this sequel to OF POSEIDON, 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 below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena 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?

The unlikely saga that Banks established in her first book comes full circle, with a witty and smartly plotted conclusion that will leave readers completely satisfied. Expanding on the world she introduced us to in Of Poseidon, Banks explores the mythology of the Syrena and their world in full force. With Of Triton, we come to understand more about their world — and Emma’s role in it.

Likewise, we get more of Banks’ brilliant blending of high-stakes drama with charming and hilarious humor. It’s a tough act to balance humor with drama, but Banks pulls it off swimmingly. (Yeah, yeah … pun intended!) And of course, there’s plenty of romance, too, as Galen continues to make Emma (and readers) swoon.

Of Triton is in stores May 28th.
