*Thanks Hardie Grant Egmont for my copy in return for a honest review, this did not affect my review whatsoever*
Of Poseidon was a light and funny read. Before I dug into my huge list of review books I couldn't help but read Of Poseidon, which I managed to do in a day. I love mermaid stories and that sorta thing and it was definitely one of the very well done ones. And it wasn't till I started it that I realised how much I missed a good mermaid story.
I liked that we got alternating chapters between Galen and Emma. Because it was nice to get a deeper sense of both characters and their emotions. I was discussing with my friend the other day about how appealing a book is that has a interesting first chapter and how off putting a slow beginning can be. Of Poseidon started off with humorous narration as Galen and Emma quite literally bumped into eachother. It got right into things without rushing the story line which did score a star
There were some minor issues in this book. At the beginning it felt as though Galen was kinda insta-lovey for Emma where for Emma it was a attraction. Though this died down within the first few chapters and wasn't a issue. I certainly would not call it a Insta-Love relationship. Sometimes Emma could be a bit frustrating because she would get annoyed a lot and I wanted her to open her eyes and see that Galen actually liked her. But I guess I can't blame her because, without spoiling anything I guess you could say it was a instinctive trait. Though these were minor problems and didn't stop me from enjoying myself.
A lot of people found this book predictable and while I had my strong suspicions about Emma, there was a twist at the end which I was not expecting. I'd rate Of Poseidon 4.5 because it was one of those light and entertaining reads that was good enough for me to be really wanting a copy of the sequel. It also had me laughing quite a bit.
