Audiobook Review @ByAnnaBanks - Of Triton by Anna Banks (The Syrena Legacy #2)

Of Triton
The Syrena Legacy #2
by Anna Banks

Goodreads blurb:  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?

Once again, Anna Banks infuses Emma and Galen's points of view with humor, intrigue, and waves of romance.

About the Author:  Anna Banks - New York Times Bestselling author of The Syrena Legacy series.

Grew up in a town called Niceville. No, seriously. I graduated from Niceville High School. So did J Lo's second husband. And the guy that plays Aqua Man on Smallville dated my best friend.

Now I indulge my tendency to lie by writing the lies down and selling them to publishers. Well actually my agent sells it, so she's an accomplice to lies. One of my lies is called OF POSEIDON. The sequel is called OF TRITON. The last and final installment is OF NEPTUNE, and it released May 13, 2014. Be on the lookout for JOYRIDE, my YA Contemporary out June 2, 2015--Bonnie & Clyde meets Latina Pretty in Pink!

And um. I also write adult fiction under pen name Anna Scarlett. One of the adult lies is DEGREES OF WRONG.

That is all.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

Okay, I picked up this book from Audible since I knew I had the first book in audiobook form from SYNC. 

First, I love that it is the same narrator because I was already use to her style and voices for her of the characters :)  I really like listening to audiobooks as a way to get my book fix when I’m busy doing other things and can’t focus on reading.  I get to multitask this way.  I usually have two audiobooks going as the same time.  One I listen to in the car with my son, and another I listen to from my computer.

Anna has created a beautiful world, but it does have its perils that must be transverse.  She does a wonderful job weaving her words in a great story. 

Emma is a great heroine in the story, and she is always protective of life which I love.  She won’t let people railroad her and always sticks to her guns when it is something she feels is important.  Her gift is amazing.  Of course new things are happening in the Syrena world.  Some things I loved and could see coming, and other things, I was screaming and yelling Nooo!!!  Lots of action, turmoil, drama, and so much more!  I can’t wait to listen to book 3 which I already have!!

I recommend this series to YA lovers who like fishy tales ;)

See my review of Of Poseidon (Book 1)!!!

Interested in reading or listening???
