“In 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?”
This book made me so nervous to read. A few times, I had to put the book down just to calm down!
The plot is the best part of the book. Moving and adventurous, the plot steers the reader to a vivid world colored by madness. Emma is taking chances to save the ones she loves. Not all goes well. There are betrayals, secrets and yes, somebody dies!!! It all comes down to a very intense, very emotional read that I enjoyed very much.
The love interest moves in a good direction. It seems though, in the beginning they are slowing down. So much is going on a round them, that they have no time for each other or for themselves. Towards the middle, the finally began to come together again, releasing so much love and sacrifice. Their love alone, gave the reader hope in the end. Despite the rage and the outcome of certain circumstances, they managed to hold on to each other tight, setting their love on fire.
The ending is so sweet and right on point. I like that it gave an insight on how they are doing. I love that yes, it is a HEA and yes, it made me giddy.
Of Triton is a solid story that with excellent visuals and emotions. The impressive story line with the awesome growth in characters, sets the reader for a great adventure under the sea. Delivering an energetic yet amazing read, Of Triton rocked!
I give it 5 BITES!
