I thought Of Triton was the last one!! I saw that there's a third book and ran downstairs screaming at my mom "MOM THERE'S A THIRD BOOK IT'S NOT OVER!". I can't WAIT to read it. The first two were so good I had to take a moment at the end of the second to ponder the amazing journey I just went on. I'm SO excited to read the last book but sad it's over!

The final installation of Emma and Galen's journey, this book was more than I was expecting. I thought it would be just another regretful addition that often happens after the big plot of the story has been resolved (Jagen's conspiracy being dissolved), but I was wrong. There was more action, intrigue and conspiracy in this book than I thought and the best part is- the conspiracies sort of tied in to past revelations of the story. It wasn't just brand-new stuff that seemed unnecessary. It was actually kind of cool how the conflict was incorporated. The one thing I didn't like about this book though was Emma and Galen's fight that happens early on. It was a main part of the book, but honestly it wasn't <i> that </i> big of a fight. Emma was sooo worried it would ruin their relationship but it was not even close to as bad as I was expecting. Seriously, I was sort of like, just calm down. I tried to get over that though so the rest of the plot wouldn't feel diminished.
Good book for those still hooked on Emma and Galen!

I love Emma and Galen. Because of that, I was really excited to read the finale to the syrena legacy however I had the same problem with this book that I did with Of Triton. In Of Neptune, Emma and Galen go on a road trip and find a town called Neptune where Syrena, humans and half-breeds all live. The people of Neptune want to use Emma to be accepted in the ocean among the other syrena. Basically, I don't care about half breeds or them being accepted in the syrena community. Also, something happens between Galen and Emma and the problem just took too long to be resolved. They couldn't move on until it was resolved and it felt like nothing was moving forward or being fixed. This was a really disappointing ending to this series. Don't know what my overall feeling is about these books.
Furthermore, I just didn't understand what the point of this book was. The problems that were created in this book were also solved but they didn't really add much to the story line or Emma and Galen's relationship. This trilogy could have very easily have ended after Of Triton. This book really didn't do anything and made me more frustrated than anything. I am feeling very ugghhhh

"But when I don't answer, he starts to show sings of weakness. First, he taps his fingers on the steering wheel to the tune of the song humming fuzzily through the speakers, Problem is, he doesn't appear to actually know the song. Or he has the rhythm of a worm." -Emma, page 145

"It's a rare thing to see panic on Galen's face. So when alarm takes over his expression and his entire body tightens like a drawn rubber band, I'm pretty much on the verge of freaking out. Especially since we're in the stomach of a foreign cave with sharp teeth, and every time the thunder rumbles behind us, it sounds like said cave is hungry. And by Galen's face, he's also thinking we might be the appetizer." -Emma, page 44
