    description

    Not to hate on Anna or the series, but I can't imagine much of a good storyline to go off on with Book 2's ending. I suppose the Epilogue ended with a small opening of a possible 3rd book, but I don't know what other problem Emma and Galen could possibly deal with that may be life threatening (except the exposure of Syrena or something about Jagen since technically it wasn't completely resolved/

    I love how the majority of people say, "I LOVED OF TRITON!!!" Yet they have no faith in the author that brought them the first two books. Can't we just wait to see how "Of Neptune" is when it comes out and until then give Anna Banks the benefit of the doubt? Then if it sucks, let her and the rest of the world know? It like saying you don't like Mexican food when you've never had it. Or better yet, when you've had it twice and enjoyed it, yet you're skeptical of eating it for the third time at th ...more

    A great conclusion to a fun series!

    To be honest, I was surprised when I heard there was going to be a third book in this series. Personally I thought book two had wrapped up the series fairly well. Boy was I mistaken. This book wrapped up any remaining plot holes from the first two books, and

    I'm guessing there's another breed/ group of syrena (Neptune). They will attack the Poseidon snd Triton community and Emma's gift will be useful at last. She may use her gift to order the sharks/whales to defend their territory.

    Then she will be mated to Galen! Then they will have amazing fingerlings with amazing superpowers to save the day.

    Oh Ms. Banks, is this too much to ask?

    Loved it! At first I forgot everything but I quickly remembered and I enjoyed the story very much. Reed annoyed the majority of the book. Galen had always been the one for me-although he is a tad too much protective. Both Emma and Galen annoyed me so much. They were both selfish and just...ugh! But I got the reasons why they both were. I hated how the story kept bouncing back and forth between G

    This book was not necessary. It should have been a duology. I would have been PERFECTLY happy with just that.

    Not every YA series needs to be a trilogy. Duology is just as good! 4 books, 5 books, 6 books. It doesn't matter. What authors need to figure out is which number of books best suits their storyline. I feel like authors these days feel that 3 books is the amount that they need to produce. It kills me because it hurts some series. Like The Syrena Legacy series. I have a fondness for the ser

    I was slightly disappointed with this book. I honestly thought the story could have ended with Of Triton. I felt that this book created its own problems and then solved them without adding much to the story.
    However, I did love how it ended and it was great to read an epilogue for Emma and Galen. Their relationship was one of the things I LOVED in Of Poseidon, and I was a little aggravated with what went on in this book regarding their relationship. Emma also frustrated me!

    The conclusion of the Syrena Legacy series; I said it before, I never like the final book in any series-- this one included. I truly liked this series so don't get me wrong there, but what bothered me the most about this book was...drum roll...one character in particular, Emma.



    I almost want to say that I have no idea what it is about her that is so irksome, but that isn't quite true since I know exactly what it is. It's really a combination of things: she's f

    I feel like this is what I get for having hope that this book might be decent, and preordering, and actually paying damn near full price. This is what I get. Shattered hopes and plummeting expectations.

    See, I desperately thought that maybe, just maybe, this book could recapture what I actually liked about the first book. Not so much the second. However, I got a good idea of what this book would actually be like in the first 40 or so pages while the men stood around and talked about that needed t

    Dear Emma

    How dare you say what you did to Galen. Girl where was your head. Do you have any idea what he is sacrificing for you? How much he loves you and respects you? What on earth were you possibly thinking!????!!?

    You go on this trip and Galen is okay with you changing the destination based on something your grandfather talked to you about. Did this mind you with no freakin questions asked. Has a hard time controlling himself around you and you question this thinking he doesn't want you humpff

    Man, this could have been such a good book. But there just had to be a love triangle. And it wasn't even a legit love triangle. There wasn't much work put into it.

    This is definitely my least favourite in the trilogy. I felt like the whole "teen drama" and the misunderstandings would be more accurate for the second book in the series, not the final one. It felt disconnected with the other two books, I feel like this one had his own problems and almost no relationship with the matters of the first books in the trilogy. I was frustrated almost the entirely of this book. And the thing that bother me more was the fact that Rayna and Toraf almost didn't exis

    Well first of the cover doesn't have anything with the story to do. Only if you really start to connect abstract stuff then yes.
    Second, I still think this ending was unnecessary. I mean maybe it was for the sake of solving the last conflict. The conflict about the war between the two kingdoms Poseidon and Triton. Now there's obviously a "third" on called Neptune.

    As a summary; No final battle and ehh lot's of "I can only live because of you" stuff all over the place.

    "Of Neptune" is the last book in the trilogy of "Of Poseidon". The trilogy follows an 18 year old girl named Emma who thinks that she is just a normal human. While on summer vacation Emma literally runs into a drop-dead gorgeous guy named Galen. Galen recognizes what she is right away. She is Syrena or mermaid as we call them. He knows this because he is also Syrena, but not just any Syrena he is the Triton prince. Before he can really talk to Emma, her friend is pulls her away. Syrena aren't su ...more

    Why I Picked It Up

    I loved the first two novels in this trilogy so I had to see the conclusion to Galen and Emma’s story.

    Plot

    This novel picks up a little bit after the last one. Emma and Galen travel to the town of Neptune where they discover a town where Syrena and Half-Bloods live in harmony with humans and swim in freshwater. While Emma feels a part of the little town, Galen hates it. After an argument, Galen leave

    I think that because I was so invested in this series, I had a much higher expectation. This story was entertaining enough, and it held my interest. (I devoured it in one day!)

    That being said, I was not thrilled about the turn of events that happened in this book. I feel like the relationship between Emma and Galen was in a very good place at the end of book 2, so seeing the relationship drama in this book left me feeling unsettled. It almost didn't make sense to me. Not to say that a
