Kurzbeschreibung

      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 and land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Umwerfendes Finale 30. Juni 2014
Von S. Dohl
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Of Neptune" ist ohne Frage eines der besten Finale, die ich je gelesen habe. Mehr Action und Romantik als in beiden Bänden zuvor und ein Epilog, der magischer nicht sein könnte. Nach dem etwas schwächeren zweiten Band knüpft die Autorin mit diesem Buch an das Niveau von "Of Poseidon" an.
Auf Deutsch erscheint die Reihe unter dem Titel "Blue Secrets"

Die Cover haben mir von Band zu Band weniger gefallen. Die Farben sind mir zu verwaschen, das Motiv zu verschwommen... Dafür finde ich die Titel umso besser und auch die Innengestaltung des Buches ist wirklich schön.

Erneut überzeugt Anna Banks mit authentischen Charakteren und gefühlvollen Beziehungen. Und das, obwohl man in diesem letzten Band noch einmal völlig neue Figuren vorgesetzt bekommt!
90% des Buches spielen in Neptune, der Stadt, in der Menschen, Halbblüter und Syrena zu gleichen Teilen zusammenleben. Entsprechend sind nur Emma und Galen präsent, die bisher bekannten Nebenfiguren wie Rayna, Toraf, Grom, Nalia und Antonis tauchen lediglich zu Anfang und am Ende auf.
Doch wieder fährt die Autorin hier mit Charakteren auf, die besser nicht sein könnten. In Neptune trifft man zunächst auf Reed, ein Halbblut wie Emma, das zudem auch über die Gabe des Poseidon verfügt! Sein Interesse an Emma versucht er gar nicht erst zu verbergen, was bei Galen nicht gerade auf Begeisterung stößt. Reed scheint alles zu sein, was Emma sich wünscht, er könnte ihr all das bieten, was sie sich erträumt.
Wer hier jedoch mit einer öden Dreiecksgeschichte rechnet, braucht sich keine Sorgen zu machen. Kitsch, Langeweile und vorhersehbares und unnötiges Drama findet man hier nicht.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointed! 19. Juli 2014
Von Marianne Lee (Boricuan Bookworms) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book should not have been released. Don’t get me wrong, it had some good parts, but the good definitely does not outweigh the bad.

While everything was resolved perfectly in Of Triton (this book’s predecessor), I had faith that Anna would give us a great story nonetheless.

I’m woefully disappointed.

The first book had already dealt with (and resolved) a love triangle. Seeing another triangle, and a much bigger one at that (because it is obvious from the beginning that Reed is a good contender) really brought this book down.

This book has no real discernible plot. It’s about how Galen & Emma find this town called Neptune filled with half-breeds. I was looking forward to see where this would go. But the half-breed aspect is only skimmed over and not discussed until almost the end of the book. The politics that made Of Triton so interesting were basically non-existent here. This whole book was about Galen & Emma's love struggles.

At the very beginning they have a “fight” and are separated from there on. I realized that my favourite parts of this series where Galen and Emma interactions, and since this book had practically none, my interest was waning.

Then comes the dreaded love triangle. This triangle was really here to try to add some drama to the book. I think the most “dramatic” part of this book is the fact that Galen turns into an unrecognizable person. He becomes a misogynistic controller who doesn’t let Emma make her own choices. He becomes jealous and possessive which really disappointed me. Aren’t Emma and Galen supposed to be mates? Why all this pettiness?

Also, if you’re looking forward to see Rayna, Toraf, Grom, or Nalia, then don’t bother. None of them make appearances and when they do, none of their personalities shine through.

Something I do have to praise, though, is Rebecca Gibel and her amazing audiobook narration. I’ve “heard” the Splintered series in audio, thanks to her, and she doesn’t fail to do a great performance here. She flawlessly portrayed Emma’s awkwardness, and indecisiveness, while also conveying Galen’s jealousy. She’s definitely a narrator that makes the book better.

Overall, a disappointing and unnecessary book in The Syrena Legacy series. While the trademark humor and wittiness is still present, it was a far better choice to leave this series at Of Triton.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Selfish characters 14. Mai 2014
Von S. Brown - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Argh....I HATED Emma in this one. She did not deserve Galen!!!! All he ever does is think of her and what she wants. Was even willing to give up his entire way of life to be with her. And when he expresses reservations and admits to what he really wants and she's like you really expect me to do that blah blag blah. And on top of that she betrays him and he forgives her. Unbelievable!!!!! I loved this series. But this was not how I wanted the series to end! Emma was ridiculously selfish and inconsiderate. Truthfully she always has been but this was it for me. I didn't mind so much in the previous books but this was too much. Ruined my view of perfectly decent relationship with that ridiculous unexpected and unwanted factor(s). This get two stars since it was most certainly not a pleasant read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better conclusion that I was expecting 13. Juli 2014
Von Gabbie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Why I Picked It Up
I loved the first two novels in this trilogy so I had to see the conclusion to Galen and Emma’s story.

Plot

This novel picks up a little bit after the last one. Emma and Galen travel to the town of Neptune where they discover a town where Syrena and Half-Bloods live in harmony with humans and swim in freshwater. While Emma feels a part of the little town, Galen hates it. After an argument, Galen leaves to tell Grom about the city and is kidnapped. Meanwhile, Emma stays and begins getting closer to a Half-Blood, Reed, until they get themselves into trouble as well.

I enjoyed this novel even better than the others. The characters really got themselves into some real predicaments. There was never a lack of anything happening. The point of view alternated between Emma’s first person and Galen’s third person so we got to see both events progressing at the same time. The thing I liked best about this novel was that there wasn’t just one evil villain—there were two! This kept me on my toes trying to figure out exactly what was going on.

Leading Lady

Emma was definitely more relaxed at points in this novel. She finally found somewhere where she fit in and you could see the wonders it did for her. She was just as strong and brave in this novel even though she wasn’t much the hero in this novel like the previous one. She did get herself out of some sticky situations though. Classic to the personality we saw in the previous novels, Emma was snarky and funny and sarcastic. I really love her character.

Leading Male

Galen was constantly in sticky situations—once with each other the evil villains and once with Emma. He just couldn’t catch a break! His chapters were my favorite to read because I was guaranteed action with a snarky Galen. He was protective in this novel and we also saw some jealousy. It was endearing to see because we didn’t see much of it in the other novels because there was never competition for Emma’s affections. But that competition just made Galen because even more swoon-worthy.

Reed was the third point to the love triangle. View Spoiler » I did enjoy Reed’s character though. He was what Galen wasn’t—funny, happy, and social. It was a nice contrast. And I have to admit—he was pretty swoony too.

Romance

The romance in this novel was on the rocks. The big problem of land vs. water came to a head in this novel. By that, I mean Emma wanted to live on land and Galen wanted to live in the water. That was the main source of their tension. View Spoiler » The chemistry was there like in the other novels and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of these two together. They just complemented each other very well.

World Building

We see more of the Syrena history in this novel and I liked that we got one more in-depth look at this world that Banks created before having to say goodbye to it.

Conclusion

Of Neptune was a better conclusion to Emma and Galen’s story than I was expecting. It pains me to say goodbye to the characters, the romance, and the story.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I'm so disappointed! 26. Mai 2014
Von Raquel Costa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really wanted to like it, because this trilogy was getting better for me. I gave the first book - Of Poseidon - a three-star ratting, the second one - Of Triton - a four-star ratting, so I expected this one to be even better. Really there wasn't much to screw up, but she did!

Emma and Galen's romance seemed to have grown and mature, and all of a sudden they are two 12 year-olds again! I know, I know, they are young, what did I expect? I remember being 19, and I was pretty stupid and egotistical too. But I expect my heros and heroins to be a little wiser and more congruent than I was, am I right? After all, aren't books supposed to teach you how to be a better you?

And I definitely expect the authors I praise to know better than to throw a love triangle at our main characters out of the blue for - what it seemed to me - no better reason then "ops, I forgot to put a love triangle in there somewhere, how will my readers know their love is true if it's not challenged? How will I justify binding them together for the rest of their lives?"

On top of that, some of the things I really liked about the plot, the secondary characters and Banks' writing style have also decayed. For starters, the whole plot seemed like an after thought - and a poorly convincing one at that. Why would Emma's grandfather send her alone to Neptune? How did he not see what could happen? And that was just the beginning of the "Why-would"s of this book. I won't say anymore because I don't want to give any spoilers, but seriously, I was regretting this whole trilogy around chapter eight! My favorite secondary characters (like Raina, for instance) are barely there - replaced by other poorly crafted ones, like Reed. And what was a fast paced, funny story became slow, redundant and predictable.

All in all, I wouldn't read this trilogy if I were any older than 16 years old and looking for a (very) light read.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Illogical runs rampant 19. Juli 2014
Von Urban Girl Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What in the world! There is absolutely no logic in this book, at all. Yes, I know it's a mermaid fantasy, but there were crater size plot holes that aliens could see from space! To show all the flaws, I made a list:

The half-breed town of Syrena made "special knifes" to kill the ocean Syrena, because their skin is apparently really thick. Okay, why did they make "special knifes" to kill ocean Syrena? Hasn't they heard of, I don't know, flame throwers, grenades, guns, harpoons, machine guns, bombs, etc... All of those weapons could penetrate the Syrena's thick skin. Also, why make a knife, why not a "special gun?" With a knife you have to get close to the stronger, bigger, ocean Syrena to stab them and the ocean Syrena could also take the knifes and use it against the half-breed Syrena. If they'd made a "special gun" they wouldn't have to get close to the ocean Syrena at all. See no logic.
If Emma knows Galen so well, why doesn't she worry when Galen doesn't call? They've been through so much together. Yet, she seems to think a little squabble is going to spit them apart forever (exaggerated eye roll). Does she really not know him well enough to know somethings up.
When Galen escapes from the evil guy, he just leaves Reed behind. Doesn't even try to save him (wuss). He just keeps on running to Grom, Emma's grandfather, Emma's mother, his sister and his BFF to get reinforcements, but they don't go get Reed right away, they talk about family issues. Does Reed's life matter that little? Finally, when they do decide to go get Reed (four hours later) it only takes ONE of them to take down the bad guy. Wait, doesn't that mean Galen took have taken the bad guy on his own when he escaped...
Don't even get me started on Emma, Reed, and Galen love-triangle, or we'll be here all day.
In the entire series, ocean Syrena don't like half-breed Syrena. So, when Emma and Galen find a town full of half-breed Syrena, that should mean trouble, turmoil, and revolts, right? Wrong. The last chapter before the epilogue talks about going to the archivers and pleading the half-breed case. But, instead of the last chapter being about the pleading, it's about Emma's and Galen's wedding with half-breeds attending. Okay, so apparently after only a month everyone is okey-dokey with half-breeds. The book should have been about half-breeds getting excepted; not a messed upped, pointless love-triangle!
