The Vicious Deep Review

384 pages

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.

This was a pretty good mermaid novel. I liked the fact that it was told from the perspective of a merman instead of the typical mermaid view. Tristan Hart is an interesting main character who acts like a typical teenage boy yet discovers that he is so much more than that. I loved Tristan's sense of humor in this novel and the entertaining way in which he got used to being a merman. There is a little bit of action in this novel but it goes well with the story and keeping you hooked to Tristan's story. Of course there are some love interests, but being told from a male perspective its less sappy and more funny. I think this novel was a light and enjoyable read and I can't wait to see where Tristan's journey takes him in the next novel. I definitely recommend this to those who like mermaid fantasy novels.
