If you haven't read book one of The Syrena Legacy, "Of Poseidon", then I wouldn't advise reading this review as their could be minor spoilers. If you missed my review of book one, you can read it here.

Anna Banks has proven with her second instalment of The Syrena Legacy that this is a series I devour. From book one the series stood out to me and was one that I really enjoyed and thank heavens the sequel was not a disapointment. Of Triton kicks off pretty much exactly where Of Poseidon left off which definitely worked in her favour. I mean, it would just be plain cruel to make us wait even longer after the cliffhanger at the end of Of Poseidon. The beginning was action packed which was great because we all had to decide whether we loved or hated Nalia and needed to get to the Emma and Galen scenes pronto.
There is something about this series that is just so refreshing and Of Triton was no different. And I think those that have read book one or two will admit that one of the best things about it is Galen. Galen is attractive, protective and oh so dreamy. He is just the perfect match for our feisty and brave female lead, Emma. They are one of my favourite couples and their scenes were most definitely the best of the novel. As you can probably tell I am a strong shipper of there relationship and saying that I wish their had been more scenes between them and that they were a little bit more lighthearted. But the scenes that we did get were very satisfactory and swoon-worthy even if it was put on a bit of a hold.
Of Triton focuses more on the political aspects of things which I think is quite appropriate for the whole law factor in the novel. Since we are dealing with
There were certain plot twists in the novel that were quite cool and sometimes shocking but cleverly thought out. I think the Gift thing was focused on brilliantly and a particular scene was quite awesome. But one thing that surprised me about Of Triton was that I found myself quite confused by the whole POV change. I mean I love that we get to read from both Galen and Emma's perspective and it was written no different from book one but it just confused me. I don't know how or why and maybe it was just because I stayed up quite late whilst reading it and probably didn't have any sense left in me but it did. I'm quite used to dual POV by now and I was completely fine with it in book one but this time I had to search for who exactly was narrating.
Overall I find it very hard to fault this series because it's one that just clicks with me and my likings. I'm the type of person who enjoys fluffy stories, mermaids, action and top notch romances so it was obviously one that I LOVED. There were some little things that irked me but they certainly weren't 'OMG, I can't read this anymore" material, and to be honest I did not want Of Triton to end and already the wait for book 3 is killing me.
