Audiobook: Of Triton by Anna Banks



*This review may contain spoilers to the first book, Of Poseidon.*

Read by Rebecca Gibel

Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess and now struggles with an identity crisis. As a half-breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm. Syrena law states that all half-breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance in the Syrena world turns the two kingdoms - Poseidon and Triton - against one another. That leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself - and her gift - to save a people she’s never known?

LA Times Festival of Books 2015

 http://www.keckmedicine.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/FESTIVAL-Header-1024x313.jpg

This past Sunday, I went to 
The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books!!!! 

I had so much fun!
 
 Last year, I was frantic going to author signings to authors signings, and I did it for both days. I remember how exhausted and sore I was by the end of the festival weekend.

This year, I planned to take it easy. My plan was to meet a few authors, spend time with my sister and friend, and enjoy the atmosphere. I pretty much wanted to relax.

Review: Pride and Pleasure by Sylvia Day

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1278525657l/6260766.jpg
Wealth has its dangers...
There are disadvantages to being an heiress, as Eliza Martin knows well. Fortune hunters flock to her, acquaintances lie and pander, and lately, someone is engineering "accidents" to propel her to the altar. But Eliza will not be bullied, and she will get to the bottom of this plot. All she needs is a man to infiltrate her assemblage of suitors and find the culprit. Someone not easily noticed; a proficient dancer, quiet, and even-tempered.

...so do certain men

Thief-taker Jasper Bond is entirely too large, too handsome, and too dangerous. Who would believe that an intellectual like Eliza would be seduced by a man of action? But the combination of her stubbornness and the mystery makes the case one Jasper can't resist. Client satisfaction is a point of pride and it's his pleasure to prove he's just the man she needs after all...
