The Series


Trish’s Review

The Syrena live in the ocean and have some very strict rules about interacting with humans, all with the goal of protecting themselves. When Galen, who is given some leeway due to his loyal human contacts, runs into Emma, they’re set on a path that neither expects.

I don’t read a lot of merfolk, romance fiction. That being said, I loved this. The characters are solid, the story is well-paced and complex, hard to put down. The romance isn’t muddied up with a love triangle, and though there’s a strong pull between the main characters, it’s not insta-love.

Fans of YA, mythology and modern times, all melded together, will probably like this.

I borrowed the audiobook from the library. I very much enjoyed the performance by the narrator. Very high quality and well paired with the story.

About Anna Banks

Anna Banks is a young adult author whose primary goal is to entertain smart, funny gals like herself. You can expect her works to be centered around a love story, freckled with humor, and seasoned with sarcasm.

Anna grew up in a small town called Niceville (yes, really) in the Florida Panhandle. She now lives with her husband and daughter close to her hometown. The youngest of seven children, she was spoiled beyond comprehension growing up. Before she started writing, Anna worked as a banker and a waitress. She loves old movies, fried chicken, and Simon Cowell, but loathes exercise, licorice, and haters.

She also spews sarcastic, romantic fiction under pen name Anna Scarlett.
