Thank you Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire for sending me a copy of the Vicious Deep for review!!
For Tristan Hart, everything changes with one crashing wave.
He was gone for three days. Sucked out to sea in a tidal wave and spit back ashore at Coney Island with no memory of what happened. Now his dreams are haunted by a terrifying silver mermaid with razor-sharp teeth.
His best friend Layla is convinced something is wrong. But how can he explain he can sense emotion like never before? How can he explain he’s heir to a kingdom he never knew existed? That he’s suddenly a pawn in a battle as ancient as the gods.
Something happened to him in those three days. He was claimed by the sea…and now it wants him back.-Goodreads
What a really great read!! The Vicious Deep definitely is one of my
all time favorite mermaid reads and is a really great beach read (I read
this one during spring break on the beach..so it got me in the perfect
mood to read this book)!!
One of my favorite
parts about this book was that the book is told from a male point of
view. Not many YA books, especially mermaid books, are told from a male
perspective so it was really interesting to see a male's take on things.
Zoraida Cordova does a fantastic job of making the reader feel like
they are going through want Tristan is going through and she makes him
really relatable as well. Tristan, probably is my new book crush, can be
hysterical at times, but has his moments where he is raw with emotion
and is so sincere and I really loved seeing him progress throughout the
Another one of my favorite parts about this book was the plot. At
first, I didn't really know what to expect about The Vicious Deep. I
wasn't sure if this book was about sirens, or mermaids. Once I started,
however, I was immediately sucked in and could not put this book down!! I
found myself staying up extra late to see what would happen to Tristan
next. I don't want to give away any spoilers but I will say that Zoraida
Cordova does a really great job of keeping the reader on the edge of
his/her seat and making the novel extra suspenseful.
I really really enjoyed The Vicious Deep and I think this has to be my
new favorite mermaid book! I loved seeing things from a guys perspective
and I really loved the main character Tristan. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. If you want a great
summer paranormal read then you have to check this book out!
My Rating: Five out of Five Stars
