      Of Neptune was an unnecessary book. I hate love triangles and definitely did not like it in this book. Of Neptune is the third and last book of The Syrena Legacy series. Thank god. Okay, so this book follows Emma and Galen's relationship. Yes, they are still in love but for some weird reason a love triangle forms in this book/5(K).   The venerable Neptune Theatre, in the University District, hosted its inaugural concert as a new, live-arts venue back in June, when Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees performed.
