SYNC audiobook title #1 Of Poseidon

Seriously cool offer of free audiobooks being offered all summer!  Take advantage of this!!  There are so many great titles on the list.  You can sign up for text alerts or emails notifying you when the downloads are available, too.  Two books every week!!!!!! (Can you tell I'm a little excited about this?!)

I downloaded my first two books last week and already finished one of the books, Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Notes: Galen, the prince of Syrnea, is sent to land to find a girl who communicate with fish. He finds Emma and after several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, Galen becomes convinced Emma holds the key to his kingdom.

Strengths: FREE!  If you're not doing this free download thing, why the heck not?  It's awesome.  OK, now, about the strengths of the book. Good romance story, although predictable.  Hey, I'm not above a little predictability. Enough suspense to keep it moving.  It's about mermaids, or, excuse, me, Syrena.  Why I'm a big fan of mermaid stories I don't know, but I just am.  Also, it's funny, and I like funny stories. I also like paranormal that's not too dark. This fits.

Weaknesses: A little overwritten in the mermaid cliche sense. Too many mermaid metaphors and the like. Clearly set up for a sequel.  Does everything have to be a sequel these days?  Seriously.
