Of Triton by Anna Banks

Goodreads Summary:
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?

If you have not read Of Poseidon then this review will contain spoilers!

My Review:
Omg, I devoured Of Triton. I read it in less then one day. Again we get alternating POV between Emma and Galen. It was so well written that at each change I was like "What is going to happen!!" I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Of course after Nalia has a lot of explaining to do. Which is hard then anticipated. She is scared for her and her daughter. When the groups finally end up together there is a lot of discussion to be had. The secrets need to be revealed for all to understand what is going on. Emma finds out the truth about her parents and about Grom. All of this is hard for her and seeing her mom and Grom together makes her a bit upset. So Grom and his crew head back to announce the return of Princess Nalia but, unfortunately things do not go as planned. There is a bit of an uproar in their society and the Royals and "the stranger" are detained. Emma is left on shore with Rayna as her body guard. Will Emma ever see her loved ones again? Is she willing to risk her life to save them?

I continued to love the characters in Of Triton. Rayna is awesome and a pain in the butt all at the same time. Toraf is the ever loving mate of Rayna who would risk everything to keep her safe. Nalia finally gets her head on straight and I grew to like her even more. Rachel is the kind hearted ex-mobster haha. Throughout all this they remain a family, for the most part. They are willing to do what is necessary to protect everyone. Unfortunately, politics is dangerous and not everyone will survive this battle. 

Galen and Emma are still love sick. In a super cute way of course. They are both worried about what will happen with their future especially after the insane tribunal. They are worried that their time will be limited because of the Syrena laws and the fact that Emma is a half-breed does not help. Galen tries very hard to keep Emma out of the Tribunal but, she can only wait so long! She makes her own decisions too. What seems the best for her in light of everything. Things get pretty intense for a while. Their love remains strong and they help each other get through the hard times. They have some pretty steamy make out sessions too. Will they get their happily ever after?

I am seriously in love with this series. I love mermaids and this version is awesome! I highly recommend it! Now I have to wait until May of 2014 for the conclusion! I am so not patient haha. I need it now!
