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 trilogy is the perfect summer read, EVER. The characters, the plot, the mythology....it was all so light and great, and just pure fun.
Book one, THE VICIOUS DEEP, is amazing. It introduces the characters and sets up the plot for the rest of the books perfectly.
The rest of the characters are pretty freaking awesome as well. Kurt is great, and his conversations with Tristan were hilarious. Layla was a great female lead, and Thalia, Marty, Frederick, and Gwen were all fantastic as well.
Book two, THE SAVAGE BLUE, is by far my favorite book in the trilogy. I read it in three and a half hours, and I do not regret losing sleep to finish this one. It had absolutely EVERYTHING in it. Action, intrigue, and an INSANE PLOT TWIST THAT LEFT ME STARING AT A WALL FOR 10 MINUTES. THANK YOU FOR THAT, ZORAIDA. :)
What I really loved though was Tristan's character development. He started out as an immature teenager, but he really matured and came into his own in the end.
Overall, THE VICIOUS DEEP was a fantastic trilogy and a great summer read. I highly recommend it!!
CONTENT: Two characters have sex in the third book, but it is barely described at all. Tristan's previous sexual excursions are mentioned, but never described, and also some innuendoes. Multiple uses of the f-word and a few other words, and moderate violence.
