Reviews for Of Triton
Booklist Reviews 2013 June #1
Banks' merpeople saga (Of Poseidon, 2012) continues with all kinds of plot twists, including kidnapping, courtroom showdowns in underwater kingdoms, and miscegenation issues. Our heroine, Emma, is in fact half Syrena, her mother being the lost Poseidon princess who was supposed to mate with Grom, the elder brother of Emma's hunky Syrena boyfriend, Galen. But Grom has spoken out against half-breeds--can he accept Emma as the daughter of his rightful mate? Will Galen stand up for his half-breed sweetheart? And what about college? This satisfying blend of action and romance is frequently tongue-in-cheek and will appeal to those who like a little bite to their beach reading. Copyright 2013 Booklist Reviews.
Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Fall
Emma's (Of Poseidon) discovery that her mother, Nalia, is a Syrena (mermaid) and princess of Poseidon leads to adventures on land and sea as Nalia reunites with a long-lost love and Emma struggles with her status as Half-Breed. Banks's fantasy world is creatively imagined, but when Emma's powers are effortlessly revealed and she's rewarded in both worlds, the triumphal ending feels shallow.
