Lana AJ lots of "Oh my sweet goodness" and things like "Triton's Trident" - which i assume is equivalent to "goddamn it".

Well, well, after a year of waiting after the drastic events of Of Poseidon, we finally get to Of Triton.

And I'm actually kind of disappointed.

This book is waaaay short. (Terrible grammar use right there.) I'm not kidding, I sat down and what felt like 15 minutes to me (or really half and hour to 45 minutes ish) and I was halfway through. LIKE I NEED MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE.

Warning: May contain spoilers for book one

This book takes up a few hours after Of Poseidon left off. Galen goes to fetch Grom, and Emma's mom knocks both Emma and Rayna out with chloroform and kidnaps Emma away. Turns out she's convinced she killed Grom in the mine explosion and this whole thing has been one elaborate set up to arrest her. Yeah, if I didn't already think her mother was nuts (who asks her daughter's new boyfriend why he doesn't want to bang her daughter?), this would have fully c

Like, ohmysweetgoodness! I seriously do not have any idea how I am going to wait this long for this book. I mean, I think I freaked out for about 10-15 minutes after I finished the first book!

After Reading:

Okay.... This book was--Amazing!
I loved it.
Just like I loved the first one.
It was a great way to continue where we left off in the first book, with that crazy cliffhanger.
And even though this book wasn't as long as the first one, it was still just as good. A

Well there was an old merman in a purple polka-dot bathrobe.



Honestly, I have nothing more to say about Of Triton. I only read this because somebody was a huge fan of Anna Banks and the first one, Of Poseidon, and if you read that, you'd know it ends on a huge cliffhanger (view spoiler).

Interesting setup for a sequel, right? Nope, because THE WHOLE REASON IS SO CONTRIVED AND STUPID AN

I was dying to know WHY Emma's mom is on the run, hiding on land since World War II . And guess what?


The whole story line is weak, there's no substance and supposedly 100-300 years old Syrena are all acting like some childish brainless teenagers.

At the tribunal,all their arguments are so damn funny because it was SOOOOO immature. Seriously , Syrena needs lawyers from land. Or go study 3-4 years of law and earn a law degree,and be a hot sh

Holding a grudge is like swallowing poison and hoping the other person dies

Of Triton deserves a different kind of 3 stars than Of Poseidon. On the one hand, the misogyny is toned down as is Galen’s temper, both of these which were the main problem I had with book one. On the other hand though, all the laughs I got from Of Poseidon were gone. I suppose this is typical though of a second book where the tone sombers down (I made that phrase up on the spot) and the characters are out of the “honeymo

¡Por las barbas de Poseidón! esto se pone cada vez más interesante.

En Of Triton nos encontramos,una vez más, con una historia para disfrutar. El primer libro termina de una manera bastante abierta lo que nos deja con mucha intriga. En esta segunda entrega tenemos como nueva integrante a Nalia la “pareja muerta” de Grom, el Rey Tritón y hermano de Galem, que al parecer estuvo viviendo durante muchos años en tierra. Pero eso no es lo más extraño, hay un complot, un complot para separar el reino y

Of Triton was an awesome addition to this series. It was fun and totally kept the wonderful pacing that its predecessor Of Poseidon delivered.

This sequel takes place right where Of Poseidon left off. Nalia, Emmas mom, is on the run thinking that Galen is trying to arrest her for killing his brother Grom. When Grom and Nalia come face to face for the first time in many many years their love is instantly rekindled. This isn't all fun and games though, Grom is already mated and with Emma being a Ha

I don't think I have any feelings regarding the sequel to Of Poseidon.

First of all, this book did not please me at all. I was bored to tears while reading this book and I can't help but compare this book to the previous one. The alternating POVs wasn't also doing this book any favor. The humor which I came to love, was lost !!! How can that be! I was expecting to laugh out loud halfway through the

Entertaining. I was never bored. Sometimes I'm grinning like crazy, sometimes I'm worried, sometimes I want to roll my eyes due to so much cheesiness.

MCs are clever. I hate hate hate protagonists who are dumb, like everything is so obvious to everybody but the protagonist has no clue what's going on. Really?

Emma is not a damsel in distress. She's freaking smart and brave and doesn't depend on a guy to save her.
Plot twists. They keep the story exciting.
Not typical. Even though it's a mermaid

I'm not sure I liked this book very much. Almost nothing happened. I'm both sad that it was so short and happy that it was so short.

The writing bothered me a lot. It may be because I've read so many books with such great writing recently that it makes this one laughable. And the writing isn't nearly as bad as Emma: she's immature she was at times. And she would call herself out on it and yet still act childish. I got over her quickly.

Some parts were good and had me glued to the page and other

4.5 stars I REALLY Enjoyed it.

Nothing beats a hot summer read like a well written undersea romance. Every summer reading list should have at least one book on it that contains mermaids and an exciting undersea mythology. OF TRITON should be on your lists. Like with Of Poseidon, Anna Banks delivers another fabulous read with Of Triton. With it's snark, sizzling romance, and characters who spring to life, I couldn't help but fall in love with the world and mythology she's created, all over again.

Anna Banks doesn't waste a moment jumping right back into the action that was left interrupted at the brutal ending to Of Poseidon. Back with another witty tale, Anna Banks will take readers by storm with this excellent sequel to Of Poseidon.

From the first page, things are intense and action packed. Even as the book comes to a close, it doesn't let up at all. I read straight through this one in about two hours, my eyes glued to the page. There is such a good mix with this book - funny m

I really enjoyed OF TRITON because I really enjoyed the main character Emma's voice. I liked the way she tried to be her best self despite all sorts of setbacks. After all, finding out that the love of her mother's life wasn't her father and then meeting him would be enough to rock most people. I also liked the way she was torn between wanting to believe her mother and wanting to believe Galen who is the mer-man she loves.

It was yet such an exciting read, filled with thrilling adventures but with challenging events taking place as the Syrena society underwater becomes more chaotic when Emma's mom who actually happens to be Nalia, the long lost princess of the Poseidon shows herself up underwater. However, not majority of the population are convinced that she is indeed the long lost queen or princess of the poseidon and instead perceive her more as a stranger.

God, how I love this series.

After reading and absolutely loving Of Poseidon, I couldn't wait to jump straight into Of Triton. I was a bit worried I wouldn't love it as much as I did the first book, and I guess I did like the first book just a teeny tiny bit more, but overall Of Triton was just as exciting, entertaining, hilarious and swoon-worthy as the previous book. Once again, I found myself frantically turning pages, laughing out loud and staying up late to finish.

Fantastic! The only reason I'm not giving this book 5 stars like book one is because this felt like more of a finalization of the ideas in book one, more of a tie together. It finished the plot points of the first book up, but it didn't really open any new ones, and the ending wasn't a cliffhanger at all. However, it was in most ways just as enjoyable as the first - lots of plot twists, I still love the characters, and we got to learn more about the interesting mythology!
