Rating : 4.5/5

Synopsis: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.

My thoughts

Cover: Awesome currents and an acient tridend . Green , my beloved color

Book: Tristan Hart, a teen life guard.A tanned sarcastic dude with a great bod.[ girls i approve you all to go ga ga and drooling over him]. He’s living a great life, cool school swim team/life guard squad, great best friendfrend and a loving parents. But his life is not a calm sea anymore. He dissapears after a rescue in the crashing waves of a sudden storm. 3 days later ,he resurfaces on the beach at coney Island abd does not know what occurred on those days. His dreams are haunted by a terrifiying silver mermaid. He was claimed by the Sea and now it wants him Back.

This tail was sweet[ And so was his]. I’ve never been to brooklyn or coney island and only saw it in movies.But I could feel being at the beach and the brooklyn vibe.My mom visited brooklyn when she was younger so asked her how it was being at coney island. Z Cordova can create a atmosphere . Some parts in this book felt disney ish, darker disney but still fun, airy and a good hearted.

I bet you all know this is a mermaid book.[I think].I fell in love with merpeople through disney’s ariel [ I <3 gingers . And a ginger novelist as a life partner would be dreamy] But rather few or none are being told from a male perspective. From a merman[sounds corny] a merbro[ lame] a merdude[ I like that term better. Tristan is not lame or a wimp] Me being a dude. I long for the male voice in books. Their reactions in situations and thoughts

The caracters gave the book its drive. From Tristan complaining of his glitteringly but masculine boy blue color.The arguing of Trisan and Kurt and the curiosity of Thalia. His “cousins’’. To the guts and spunk but still girly ness of Layla , his bestest best frend .

The Vicious Deep is written in 1st pov. I expected it to be darker but I got a fun some what light hearted book with quite some moments of darkness and terror.I cant wait for book two . I speculate something fishy is just around the corner[ yes I used a overly cliched pun] Want some hot merdudes. One of them telling the story. With something that could be romance. Jump in and dive and give The Vicious Deep a try. A fun summer or beach read. A great read for both sexes.

  9. It seems like there are so few YA books that have a male POV, so that's awesome this one does! A super hot one too, haha. ;D The only mer series I've read before is Forgive my Fins and while I really like it, it is pretty fluffy. So, it's good to know that this one is a little darker. Move mermaids and who doesn't love Ariel? Great review, can't wait to read this book!

  10. Yeah, with a name like Vicious Deep, you would expect more moments of darkness and horror, wouldn't you? But I write YA Horror, so I'm partial to those anyway. Great review! :-)

  11. Now this sounds aweosme, i love the title and i love horror!

  12. Great review! I had a few good chuckles while reading it. The cover is really nice and I do enjoy when there's a male POV. I'll definitely be checking this one out! Glad you enjoyed it :D

  13. OH GOD!!!

    This is awesome. I'm so excited.
    Also, I haven't read this book. But I like the cover and mermaid books.

    Great review Roro!

  15. I loved Ariel in The Little Mermaid, too! And it definitely made me love mermaids. Unfortunately I've only read 1 mermaid book so far. But I really want to read this one. It sounds so great! And it's cool to hear that it's a good one for boys and girls!
