Waiting on Wednesday (8)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine 
that highlights eagerly anticipated books.

Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova

Release Date: May 1, 2012
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Author Website: www.zoraidawrites.com
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.
Description from Goodreads

Why I can't wait? 
Evil mermaids! Need I say more really? I love the darker side of mermaids. After all, they aren't just pretty little things that comb their long lustrous hair and search for seashells. They're deadly beautiful and can be oh so devious. I also have to say I love the fact that the story is told by a merman. So psyched! (I know. No one's been psyched since the 90s.)


  1. I'm waiting for this one too!
    I've never read a mermaid book before!
