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.


Why my WOW? As I will admit every time, this cover is what instantly drew me to it. I saw it and thought WHOA!! what is this book about. At first glance I thought it was about Vampires then upon further inspection I noticed the scales and knew it had to deal with the sea. Mermaids instantly came to mind and once I read the snyopsis I was proven correct.

This book sounds great and has an awesomely twisted cover to go along with it, a book to surely wait for.
