Publisher's Summary

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he's a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange - is it attraction? - and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he's heard of - a human who can communicate with fish. What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma's gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she's the key to saving his kingdom.
Soon, Emma can't deny her feelings for him, but can't explain them, either - and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings. 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.

Intriguing, Funny, and Sweet!

Would you consider the audio edition of Of Poseidon to be better than the print version?

I don't think so. If I could go back, I think I would probably buy the print edition. (reasons listed below)

What other book might you compare Of Poseidon to and why?

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. It had a very similar feel to it. Also, they both are full of Greek mythology.

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Gibel – was your favorite?

Emma. She did a really great job capturing her personality.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the idea of the Syrena ("They're NOT MERMAIDS!!" lol) and wish that we would have learned more about them in this book. However, it is the start of a series so I'm sure we'll get more in depth in the following books. I did figure out the big "surprise" about halfway through the story, so it wasn't especially suspenseful.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Galen and Emma. Galen was hot (of course) and funny and sweet, and Emma had a hard time resisting him. I sometimes felt that Emma was being overly dramatic (the opening scene for example), but she was sweet and I did like her. I also really liked all of the secondary characters, especially Galen's "family." I had two slight complaints with the book, but I think the fact that I listened to the audio version is mostly to blame for both of them. First was that It was difficult to tell when the book was switching between Emma's and Galen's point of view. Secondly, It was also difficult to tell when there was a break in the story. Thankfully it wasn't so annoying as to take away from my enjoyment of the book.

Love both books! This is book 1

I love this series. Just to be clear this is book 1. Of Triton is book 2. Coming soon is Of Neptune (book 3 not available in audio yet). Legacy Lost (The Syrena Legacy, #0.5) could also be considered book 1 but is not available in audio yet.

I'm annoyed that audible doesn't clearly mark books in a series. I listened to these out of order and was extremely confused during a good chunk of listening to Of Triton (book 2). I loved both books and you will enjoy the second book thoroughly if you like this one. The narrator and author do a wonderful job. The characters are not reintroduced so it's clearly intended to be read as a second book. Rant over.

This is a coming of age tale for discovery, mystery, magic, and lust. It's very pg-13 for young adults (YA). The innuendos are full of fish humor, which is awesome since the book is all about mermaids (who hate being called that-Syrena is their preference). Who knew even fish want to go PC these days.

There are multiple mysteries to uncover, an antagonist who will carry over to the second book, magical abilities passed down from the Greek gods Poseidon and Triton. Throw in high school and hormones .. This book has it all. I loved it. Definitely worth the credit.

The description of Galin is swoon worthy. Not a bodice-ripper or "50 shades" kind of book as some have implied. While there is a lot of lusting, nothing goes past kissing and implying future "mating" so it's perfectly fine for teens IMO. I'm an adult long past my teens and still very much enjoyed this book.
