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.
Emma a normal teenage girl is vacationing in Florida with her best friend Chloe, when one day she runs into a handsome boy that makes her feel different. Different in a way that attraction can make a person feel disoriented. She doesn’t understand it when he shows up at school where he manages to be in almost each of her classes. What she doesn’t know is that Galen is a prince. A prince of the Syrenia people who live in the sea and can have legs and fins.
I rather enjoyed reading through Emma’s eye and seeing a whole new mystical world unearth right in front of her. Confusing as the Syrenia world is, she quickly understands and accepts it which I thought was odd because I’d feel crazy to think such a thing as mermaids existed.
I liked the viewpoints of both Emma and Galen. I enjoy reading from the boy’s perspective at times because it’s so brand new and fresh. And that ending made me fall off my seat! I need the next book now!
Full of twists and turns, and drama built at its finest, Of Poseidon gave me another reason to love the sea and all its creatures under the deep.
