I was looking for a new book series to start and finish reading. The last book series I read is the Shades of Grey series. I’ve heard of this new series from a book Youtuber and I thought that I might as well check it out.
Of Poseidon By Anna Banks – Book Review
Of Poseidon is the first book of the Syrena Series. It is about the underwater world of mermaids or rather syrena’s as what they are called in the book.
The book started with Emma on a vacation in Florida with her best friend and ran into an accident with Galen, a Syrena prince, and his twin sister, Rayna.
Galen is the ambassador of the humans in the syrena world. He is in search of a girl who can speak to the fishes. Emma is not yet aware of her capability and the death of her best friend, shark accident, still made her unaware she can speak to the underwater creatures.
The setting is high school in New Jersey in the human world and the two kingdoms of the seas, Poseidon and Triton, in the underwater world.
That’s about the spoilers I can tell you about the book.
I am confused with the language used in the book. The story revolves around high school kids. There are lines that made me laugh, made think of how high schoolers speak and there are lines that you don’t quite hear being used by kids of their supposed age.
I am both annoyed and adored Rayna’s girl power character and the syrena’s antics in the human world made me laugh.
There’s a part of the book that reminds me of Twilight series, how Galen is drawn to Emma. Also, the book seem to drag somewhere in the middle and I wanted it get along fast so I’ll know how the book ends.
Overall, I could’t put the book down. It’s a refreshing change to all that vampires, werewolves and angels series going around the bibliophile world.
