The Vicious Deep (Book 1)
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 emotions like never before? How can he explain he's the 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.

Praise for The Vicious Deep
"Cordova kept you on the edge of your seat. "- Blogger Loretta, Between The Pages
"I cannot stress enough how well Zoraida told this story from a REAL guy's POV. It was like being inside a guy's head… I'm squirming to get my hands on the next book to find out the next part of Tristan's story. He is my new book boyfriend and I will fight for him! Zoraida Córdova mastered the written word, and created a fearless new world. This is a must read for every YA lover out there." - YA Bound
"This mythical tale is a great read told on land and below the sea. These mermaids are not the lovely creatures you know - they may be beautiful but they are also deadly. Córdova gives us a great new ending to The Little Mermaid. Boys and girls will enjoy this book, because while there's a romance here, there's also a good amount of action. 4 Stars." - RT Book Reviews
"[A] multilayered debut . . . what she [Córdova] does exceedingly well is capture an authentic 16-year-old male voice and viewpoint . . .the great title, killer jacket, and edgy portrayal of the mythical creatures should cast a wide readership net." - Booklist
