Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy #1) by Anna Banks Giveaway ~ Review by Fallon


5 out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

Fallon's Review:

This story is about Emma a girl who is on break with her best friend at the beach. Emma bumps right into gorgeous Galen on the beach. She is so embarrassed. This first chapter takes you through so many emotions. You start off laughing. This is the best opening scene I have ever read. On top of there being a funny snarky beginning there is so much emotion when tragedy strikes from a shark attack. So much happens right off the bat and you will not be able to put this book down.

I love Emma and Galen's relationship and how quick witted Emma is. She does not treat Galen like the prince he is. He is use to being treated like royalty and she does not care. I also love Galen's best friend Toraf and Galen's sister Rayna. These were such great supporting characters. Anna Banks went all out in the details. This is a modern mermaid story that works. Every detail in this story is completely believable. I love the mythology that was put into this story. I think the fact that she put this story in a modern setting and did not overwhelm the story with too many mythologies was perfect.

This story has it all romance, mystery, humor and at times real emotional depth. This is a story I would read over and over again. The character build and detail is exceptional. I am giving this story 5 out of 5 stars. This is a must read!
