Actual rating: 4.5(This review was originally posted at My Library in the Making.)You wanna know how awesome Of Triton is? Well, let's just say it's been months—or a year, even; I honestly can't remember—since I last read a book from cover-to-cover in one sitting. Yep, it was the ermahgerd-when-will-the-characters-get-a-rest-so-I-can-too kind of book. This sequel picks up right where Of Poseidon left off so there was immediate conflict and an urgency that kept me peeled to the pages. It made up with action what it lacked in swoon, which is the only reason why I'm not giving this a solid five. Not that I don't like action, but I just wanted more Emma/Galen. But enough of the golden couple because, really, the other characters were all noteworthy as well, especially since we see a lot more of them in here. They all felt like real, breathing people and Syrena, and I really enjoyed seeing their dynamics between each other. Although the conflict between the two kingdoms made everyone wary of reunions and new acquaintances, it also showed what each of them were made of.Of Triton sated my appetite for more insight into the Syrena world leagues below sea level. The heavy presence of political intrigue in the story surprised then pleased me, because God knows how much I love that stuff. Of course I took the side of the Royals, and their enemies were my enemies. The said enemies weren't puny, but I've encountered enough of their kind in other books that I knew their own stupidity would get them in the end.Honestly, I'd have been happy if this was the last book in the series. The ending was the definition of satisfying, so now I'm worried as to what the frick could possibly go wrong in Of Neptune. I sense something ominous, and I'm so ready for this year to fly by so I can know what it is.MY FAVORITE PART was Emma's "Make way, badass coming through" moment which made me squeal and clap like a seal.
