I enjoyed Zoraida Córdova's THE VICIOUS DEEP and look forward to reviewing it for you this month during Splash!  I was really excited to see a cover and summary post for the sequel earlier this month.

I love that Sourcebooks is releasing the sequel in January and not making us wait a whole year to find out what happens next!

One of my favorite aspects of THE VICIOUS DEEP is the fact that it's from a male's POV and revolves around his destiny as he discovers that he's a merman, which gives the series a unique spin from the get-go.

I like the way the two covers match and go together.  I want to know more about that awesome, twisty crown, too! (And what is the red behind the crown?  I'm not so sure it's a sun...)  And all that churning water with the same transparent font once again adds a sense of danger, as does the lightning in the background.

I can't wait to see what Zoraida has in store for us next.  She's awesome, and I love watching her mermaid vlogs on YouTube.  Zoraida also stopped by A Backwards Story to talk about THE VICIOUS DEEP on her blog tour.  Check it out!


In the quest for the Sea Throne, Tristan has already watched one good friend die. Now he must lead the rest on a dangerous voyage to the infamous port of Tortuga Cove in search of the trident that will make him king. But while Tristan chases his destiny, the dark forces raging against him are getting stronger and the sea witch of his nightmares is getting closer. Battling pirates, sea dragons and mutant creatures of the deep, Tristan needs his friends' support. But they each have their secrets, and a betrayal will force Tristan to choose between loyalty and ambition, friendship and love. In the race for a throne, all's fair in the savage blue.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
