Review: Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy #1)


'' Well, I might be his student, but I'm about to school him on a few things. The first lesson of the day is Silent Treatment I0I. ''

★★★★★

From Goodreads:
Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen—literally, ouch!—both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom...

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

This darling has been sitting on my bookshelf for far too long now. Then all my reading devices batteries died and I had no charger in the house. I picked this up, and now I can't wait for the next one!
The book is clearly aimed towards the Young Adult readers, but I wouldn't say that anyone a bit younger or older than that ag group wouldn't love this book. You just need to be hungry for a good and easy romance, and open your heart for a few impossibilities, like kingdoms on the bottom of the ocean.

The characters in this book are sweet and ones you get to know easily. There is no animosity between the reader and the characters they are a true match. 

We all know the perfect princely type. You know, dark hair, tanned, and very, very nicely toned? Oh, and being shirtless most of the book isn't a minus either. Galen appears to be the prince in the shining armour, riding the white horse to rescue, except that he probably can't ride a horse. He is smitten with the main character, Emma, from the beginning, and ladies, we all know it, when the guy turns bit territorial, just a little, the right amount, it just is hot. Galen knows a lot about the human world already, but nothing of actual value. And with girls, forget it, he is as lost as a fish on land.

Then again, Emma is something else. She was living a happy content life, had a best friend, was good at school. Then, her life is shredded to pieces on a vacation, and it doesn't make forgetting easier that the guy who saw it all happen is now a new student at her school. Emma is the typical girl of her age, a bit carefree, listens to her mom, does her best, strong-headed and doesn't give up an argument easily. In the book, she does have some development in her character, which is all quite logical since they are a part of what she goes through. (Can't reveal more without possibly spoiling.)

The plot has a few twists and turns in it, nothing major. The main plot keeps you engrossed in the book, and if you look close enough you see there is another twist coming long before it actually happens.

I really recommend getting the second instalment readybefore finishing this one. The cliffhanger, in the end, is killing me.
