Thoughts: I did enjoy Of Poseidon, but there were a few things that would often throw me out of the story.  At first, it was simply because - since I was listening to it and not reading it - I didn't realize it was alternating between 1st and 3rd person, not just between Emma and Galen.  Second, there were a few spots that just reminded me too much of other mermaid YA novels.  However, the last part, right up until the powerful ending, really gripped me.

Rating: 3 stars


  1. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, it also felt very reminiscent of other YA novels to me. Do you plan on continuing the series?

    1. Not really sure. I liked the ending, but I don't think I would go actively seek out the rest of the series.
