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?
Once again, Anna Banks infuses Emma and Galen's points of view with humor, intrigue, and waves of romance.

Of Triton by Anna Banks is a beautiful sequel in the Syrena world. Here we have many established characters that add a lot to the story. This book really focused on the rules and politics of the Syrena world. They way the Syrena world is set up is so interesting to me. It is almost like a mix of modern world and old world. I loved getting to know the way of this society works better.

Emma’s history of her life is being completely rewritten. now she doesn’t know what to think. I really admired Emma in this book because her entire world has been turned upside down, yet Emma keeps pushing forward.

I loved getting to know these characters better. You got a bit of Syrena history and you get to meet new minor characters. So much of this story takes place in the ocean. I think Emma and Galen spent more time apart than they did together but I think that also gave the reader a chance to get to know who these characters are becoming without them being wrapped around each other all the time.

I am definitely looking forward to reading the conclusion.
