Of Neptune by Anna Banks

Where did I get it?

Bought it at Chapters because I really needed it. Or so I told myself.


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.


Typical romance-like cover. Doesn’t really appeal to me or have anything to do with the book.

Initial Thoughts

My first thought was yay more Emma and Galen to be honest. I’m so addicted to them! Also I was a little confused because the second book ended so nicely. Shouldn’t the series have ended there?

My New BFF

I’m still loving Emma. Doesn’t matter what she does she’ll always be awesome. She’s brave and clever, both things I love seeing in my heroines.

My Crush

I love Galen but man he was annoying in this one. He was still perfectly beautiful and amazing but I didn’t like the whole jealousy thing he had going on. I feel like he’s a better person than that. He was really hesitant the whole book too. I was disappointed in him. I felt like the romance that was usually between Galen and Emma just wasn’t there. It’s something I was really looking forward to.

Writing Style

The one reason why I didn’t give this book 5 stars was because it felt out of place. Book two followed directly after book one and then this book is kind of just thrown at the end. It feels like the series should have ended after book two but the author wanted to cram a little more in. Kind of like the Mortal Instruments series. The writing was still good and the characters still amazing but the plot felt a little forced.

Closing Thoughts

A part of my wishes the series had ended after book two. I wasn’t crazy about the plot in this one. It was a little strange. It was still good and I enjoyed reading it but it wasn’t amazing like the first two. That made me feel a little disappointed with the author. Most of the new characters were good and there was still parts with the old ones which made me feel a little better. While I wished this book didn’t exist, that’s still no excuse for not reading it. Get to it!

Bonus: The ending was cute and fun!


“Emma, I will love you with every breath in my body and beyond my own death. I swear to be your shield, your protector, your worshipper. There is nothing I will deny you. I am yours”

 5 out of 5 stars
