Waiting on Wednesday (66)

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to show books we can't wait for!

This week's pick:
The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cรณrdova
May 1, 2012


When an unnatural riptide sweeps lifeguard Tristan Hart out to sea for three days and then dumps him back on the shore of Coney Island, it’s the start of the Sea Court claiming its own. Suddenly, Tristan’s girlfriend dramas and swimming championship seem like distant worries as he discovers the truth: he’s a Merman. Now Tristan must fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity (if he still wants it), while competing in a race for a throne as ancient as the gods. 

Seductive, duplicitous, and with an agenda of their own, these are not the mermaids you know.



I love that last line: these are not the mermaids you know. I'm always up for a book that involves mermen, mermaids or other creatures of the sea. Plus, we have another male main character! Yay! I'm not a fan of the cover but it'll do.

Ooh, haven't heard of this one but it sounds great--I like most mermaid books and since this is a merMAN...yay!

I'm reading a merman book right now, and I'm kind of meh on it. Hoping The Vicious Deep is much, much better! It sounds exciting. Great pick, Katie! :)
