Why I want to read this book:
Okay first, this cover is GORGEOUS! I love how the mermaid is in the water with red lips, it looks awesome! The plot for this book also sounds very mysterious and I like how the main character is a boy! It has been a while since I have read a story with a boy main protagonist so I am interested in seeing what happens! Is it April yet?!
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.-Goodreads
