Waiting on Wednesday....Of Poseidon


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Here is the Goodreads synopsis

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.


Doesn't that synopsis just make you want to read this RIGHT NOW?! The cover is stunning and it sounds so good. 2012 really is shaping up to be an amazing book year.

Expected release date - May 22, 2012

  2. It sounds interesting. It sort of reminds me of Tempest Rising, but only in terms of the girl on land and guy mer-person aspect. I like the cover for this book. :)

  3. Amen to that! The 2012 books I've already been lucky enough to read have blown me away and when I see all the other amazing ones we have to look forward to, like Of Poseidon, well.... *explodes* And mermaids! They are so the in thing next year.

  4. I enjoyed the characters in Of Poseidon. Emma is funny, sensitive and slightly naïve for an eighteen year old. Galen is a prince and of course is totally swoon worthy. His interactions with Emma and others was at times a riot, since he doesn't really understand human lingo. His sister Rayna is a hoot and her relationship with Toraf was sweet and funny. There are other characters that add to the tale. Overall I liked and connected with all of them, but felt their conversation and behavior read more like a middle school novel.

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
