Although their connection is immediate and powerful, Galen's not fully convinced that Emma's the one he's been looking for. That is, until a deadly encounter with a shark proves that Emma and her Gift may be the only thing that can save his kingdom. He needs her help--no matter what the risk.
OF POSEIDON gets many mixed reviews. Looking through them on Goodreads I found the majority being four/five stars or just one. I am on the four stars side, I enjoyed the novel’s strengths far more than I opposed its weaknesses.
But this is just my opinion on the matter. I can see some automatically judging the book when first reading it. You really shouldn’t, if you are like me, you will find so many this things to love about this novel if you just give it a chance.
‘Oh, and I need to known where Jersey is and if I have enough money to buy it.’
‘How about a rain check?’
She smiles, but I know it’s not real because it doesn’t crinkle her eyes. ‘Sure. Some other time.’
I nod and grab my car keys. Before I flip the light on in the grage, she’s behind me, tugging on my backpack.
‘You want to go to school? Fine. But you’re not driving. Give me the key.’
‘I’m okay, Mom, really. I’ll see you tonight.’ I plant a quick kiss on her cheek and turn to the door again.
‘That’s nice. Give it to me.’ She holds out her hand.
I clench the key in my fist. ‘You practically shoved that car down my throat Monday, and now youre taking the key. What did I do?’
‘What did you do? Well, for starters, you used your face to stop a cafeteria door from swinging open.’
