Of Triton - 
Anna Banks
Released: July 1, 2013
Publisher: Hardie Grant Egmont

Synopsis: Emma is half-mermaid: a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. But she's in love with Galen - a gorgeous Syrena from the House of Triton, god of the sea. If Emma's secret is discovered by the Syrena, she risks being put to death as a Half-Breed.

Emma's heritage comes from her mother - a princess from the House of Poseidon who escaped the sea to live as a human. Aware of the danger her daughter faces, she is determined to keep Emma away from the Syrena. But her reappearance after so many years turns the underwater kingdoms, Poseidon and Triton, against one another.

How can Emma and Galen stay together when their two rival kingdoms, and two different worlds, just want to tear them apart?

Picking up right where Of Poseidon left off, this utterly irresistible story is full of humour, intrigue, and waves of romance.


What I thought: Of Poseidon was one of my favourites from last year, so I had really high expectations for Of Triton, but Anna Banks didn't fail. This one is super exciting because so much happens in so little time. Anna Banks packs everything into this 240 page book - romance, loss, betrayal and many more surprises! Grom and Nalia are reunited. But Nalia returning to the Syrena certainly causes a rift between the houses. Rayna and Emma are stuck on land, while everyone sorts things out. But of course, our heroine has to save the day, using her Gift of Poseidon. All our favourite characters are back, and each more lovable than last time! The one thing that annoyed me in this book though, was Emma. For most of the book, she acts like a bratty child and even she knows it. There are also some more exciting developments in the story, and we also learn more about Nalia.

But my absolute favourite part of this whole book was King Antonis. He brought the humor and he became my favourite character and my favourite parts of the book.

If you liked Of Poseidon then you are going to love Of Triton too!


The Good: Of Triton was just as amazing as the first book, which made reading this super easy!


The Bad: Having to wait another year for the next book!!
