The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: March 2012
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Summary: Set against the backdrop of a Coney Island summer comes The Vicious Deep, the story of sixteen year old Tristan Hart whose life is turned upside down when the mermaids make an unscheduled return to land in search of their new king. When a sudden storm pulls Tristan from lifeguard duty into a deadly riptide, he discovers what he really is—a prince of the Sea Court. Turns out, his girlfriend hopping and talents as a swimmer aren’t caused by his teenage prime hormones after all. In this modern Arthurian tale with a twist, when all a guy wants to do is get The Girl and enjoy the freak show that is a Coney Island summer, Tristan has to fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity, if he still wants it, as he’s caught in a race for a throne that is as ancient as the gods.
My Thoughts: This sounds viciously delicious! I mean, look at that cover! An evil mermaid with blood dripping off her lips, it can't get any better than that. I'm assuming these mermaids will do anything to get their king back, which makes it that much more interesting. It definitely looks like a must read, 2012 better show up quickly.
