This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't read Of Poseidon.

A fantastic sequel! Anna Banks managed to top the already awesome Of Poseidon with this explosive, daring and brilliant sequel. One of my favorite books of the year!

 A kingdom is in peril, and man, the setting was wonderful! Banks has a way of stringing and crafting words together to portray a beautiful and haunting castle - a definite highlight of Of Triton - but I just couldn't get over how incredible the setting was. Of Poseidon definitely had a great setting, but this sequel blew it out of the water (pun not intended)!

And the characters... oh gosh, the characters become so great. There were some characters I had troubles with in Of Poseidon (*cough* Rayna *cough*), but each and every character morphs and develops in the sequel. Emma was absolutely epic - fierce, determined, strong... yep, that sums her up in Of Triton. She did a complete 180˚ on me, and she's quickly become one of my favorite characters... ever. Galen was just as great too! We get to explore him in his "normal" life, and he's definitely a different person. Emma and Galen together are unstoppable, but there not the only great characters. Toraf and Rayna... outstanding! I am so happy there is more than one romance in the book, and Toraf and Rayna together are hilarious. You have the contrast between them, but they even each other so perfectly. Just another reason why Of Triton is even better than its predecessor!

I love kick-butt action scenes, and Of Triton brings a bunch to the table. I thought that the end of Of Poseidon was crazy... guys, it doesn't even compare to Of Triton's final 60 pages. I mean, mind equals blown here. Anna Banks, I applaud you for such an epic ending! I'm super excited and curious to see where Of Neptune goes!

Overall, Of Triton... oh gosh, there are no words. An absolutely phenomenal sequel! Mysterious as the ocean itself, Of Triton glows from the first page and never let me go.
