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.


My Review:
This is the final book in the Trilogy for the Syrena Legacy. After plowing through the first two books I knew I had to get going through this one. I had to work this week, so it took me a little longer to read it, but I managed to get it done anyway :)

I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as the other 2. I found Emma to be extremely selfish. She kept getting angry over things that if she just took the time to listen she could have understood. Instead of trying to fix things, she just kept going on like she did nothing wrong. It had me pretty angry every time I read her part of the chapters.

I still loved Galen. He did make mistakes too, but no matter what was going on Emma was in his heart. It makes you want to sigh as you read how much he loves her.

I felt like something was definitely up in this book. I wasn't sure which since Emma was sent to Neptune by her grandfather, but for everything to happen the way it did, I was shocked. Then for them to all find a way out to just get back into trouble all over again. The Author definitely gives you lots of suspense in this book. I think this book has more suspense than the first two books put together.

You meet lots of new people in this book. There is Reed, Mr. Kennedy, Tyrden, Reger, Toby, and all the other townsfolk that pop up. You see a lot of Reed and Tyrden though. I didn't like Reed much. I understood a little bit, but he knew about Emma and didn't seem to care about boundaries. He pushed anyway and that annoyed me as well.

This book is set mainly in Tennessee. You don't get to experience the Ocean really in this book, but she makes it in a way that all still makes sense. She twisted up the story in a way that captivates you and won't allow you to get out of it until you finish the last page.

I loved this book though. Mainly because it all comes together in the end. The Author gives us an excellent Epilogue for all us hopeless romantics to get our fill of Emma and Galen. The book definitely ended in a way that it needed an epilogue to clear everything up for those that wanted to know what happens to the relationship. It all comes together wonderfully and left me satisfied. I could easily see a separate trilogy popping up with future offspring down the road of several of the matings that happened in this book. It would be neat to see how they grew and how the kingdoms were. If not, I am still very happy with the series and know it will be something I cherish for a long time to come.
