Synopsis: Emma, who is half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love, Galen, need time together. Alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma’s grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called Neptune.
Neptune is home to both Syrena and Half-Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean-living Syrena and the land-dwelling, freshwater counterparts. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half-Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggle that threatens not only their love, but their ocean kingdoms.
In this stunning conclusion to her bestselling Syrena Legacy, Anna Banks thrills fans with more action and romance than ever.
The Syrena Legacy has finally come to a conclusion with it's third and final book, and I found it totally unnecessary...
This book is told in alternating perspectives of Emma (first POV) and Galen (third POV). Galen's chapters are in present tense which is different and unique for third POV, but I'm not sure how I felt about it.
Emma is a half-breed - half syrena and half human. She hasn't really changed much from the previous books. She's still bubbly, energetic, and ridiculously naive. She gets sidetracked very easily and reads way too much into things. At times, she can get to be a bit much, but she'll occasionally say something witty and funny. All in all, she wasn't unbearable. I think I actually preferred her chapters. The first POV just worked better in this book for me.
Galen is pretty cool. I don't love him, but I don't dislike him either. He did get kind of possessive in this book, but I can't blame the poor guy.
Reed was meh. I didn't care about him either way. Nalia is just like Emma, but so much worse. There is no way that she's supposed to be an adult; she is too immature. And what's her problem with Neptune? It's filled with half-breeds just like her daughter.
And why do you care? Neptune shouldn’t exist. We don’t have to recognize their authority over anything.
The love triangle was so pointless and unnecessary. We've had two entire books filled with Galen. We all know she's going to choose Galen. I don't even consider this a spoiler.
That being said, Emma definitely let things get too far with Reed - the flirting, the holding hands, and the kiss. While I'd say it was forgivable since Galen kind of dropped off the face of the earth, it was still too far.
Galen and Emma's make up scene was extremely cheesy.
Everything in the plot mostly made sense, but I found this book to be unnecessary. I think everything could have easily been wrapped up in the previous book, Of Triton. This book almost seemed like a companion novel. While I was reading this, I kept thinking to myself, "What is the point of this?". It just didn't add anything substantial to the series.
Something about Anna Banks writing is so addictive. I don't know what it is, but I can never seem to put her books down.
I kind of expected the plot twist; it was pretty easy to guess.
And what is it with everyone covering Emma's mouth with their hands? It's definitely not the most conventional way to shut someone up...
Also, does anyone else think it's kind of weird the Emma and her mother are being married/mated to two brothers...awkward much?
