Of Triton - YA Review by Emily L

Reader: Emily L
Age: 15
Title: Of Triton
Author: Anna Banks
Publisher:  Feiwel and Friends
Pub Date: 05/28/13
Galley: Yes
Top 25: No
Convince us to read the book: It was easy to relate with Emma even though she was practically half fish. Not only did she have to worry about losing her life but her relationship with Galen & all of her recent absences from school as well. I think that this book could have been spread out a little more though. The book was very fast moving and I think that took away from the story.
Memorable or Forgettable: I think this book was memorable to me because it's a little different than your average teenage romance book. I liked that a lot.
Cover: The cover kind of made me not want to read the book because it seemed as if the book was going to be mostly romance throughout the whole thing but fortunately that was not the case.
Age Range: 16 through 17
Quality: 3Q Readable
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional Comments: Anna Banks did a swell job at writing this book, but I still think that the first one was a lot better written. Both of the books really held my attention throughout the whole thing. There was always tons of excitement going on.
AnnotationOf Triton is the sequel to the book Of Poseidon. It continues the story of Emma,who had just recently found out that she is what the Syrena species call a "half-breed" (half human, half Syrena.) She is considered an abomination to the Syrena world. She has to overcome many obstacles while trying to keep her relationship with the gorgeous Syrena prince, Galen.
