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.
This book will transport the reader to a very different world, the world of Syrena. Syrena is currently in trouble...all over a missing girl who is a bit of a "fish whisperer."
Emma and Galen are the main characters. Their relationship starts off rocky and continues that way through the majority of the book. Galen is seeking that special girl, he believes there is a strong chance Emma could be her. Emma is dealing with normal teenage issues, from school to a lack of boyfriend to family. Emma is more happy-go-lucky, inquisitive, and funny while Galen is more of an enigma. He can be charismatic, but he can also be a bit of a cold fish at times (punny, I know).
The secondary characters are fun to get to know. Galen's friend and a relative accompany him on his quest, the sparks from their relationship will keep the reader intrigued. Many of the secondary characters have a quality that is memorable to the reader, they also play a very important part in the plot.
The events in this book range from slightly romantic encounters to scary whale shockers to the discovery of a whole different world underwater. The reader will be kept entertained through every scene. This book is highly recommended to teens/young adults/adult readers.

The Book Depository
You Might Be an OF POSEIDON Fan If…
I’m from the south. Also, I’m southern. (You can be from the south and not actually be southern. Normally these type of people move away, because they don’t fit in here.) Anyhow, to us southerners, Jeff Foxworthy is a mini-deity. His You Might Be a Redneck If… jokes are hilarious. They’re hilarious and we southerners “get” them and we laugh until tears slide down our cheeks and into our mason jar glasses of sweet tea.
But they’re not just jokes. No, they’re actual instruments to help you identify whether or not you’re a redneck. Brilliant, right? No blood-work needed, no background check necessary. A simple yes or no could help you find your true identity. It could help you find where you belong. Give you a sense of purpose in life—well anyway, it’s helpful.
So. I decided that this simple/brilliant method could also work for folks who are contemplating whether or not they should read OF POSEIDON. I’m a bit biased on the subject (you should totally read it), so please, by all means, do take advantage of these valuable tools I’ve provided below:
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You have ever knocked yourself unconscious on some guy’s magnificent pecs.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You think mermaids with fluffy goldfish tails are a bit pansy-ish.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You find chick fights amusing, and not to mention entirely necessary sometimes.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You think royal princes—even hot ones—should be sassed. Often.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You have ever held a funeral for a dead fish before flushing it, or apologized to a dead fish for “accidentally” catching it, even though you were clearly standing on the end of a dock with a fishing pole.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You think insta-love is a metric ton of BS and you prefer your romance slow-simmered and seasoned with bickering and flaws and tingles.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You enjoy spiking the food of your friends and frenemies in order to make them upchuck.
You might be an OF POSEIDON fan if: You think sarcasm is an actual language on which tax dollars should be spent to teach it in a classroom setting at all schools.
So. Could YOU be an OF POSEIDON fan?
