The Vicious Deep Trilogy

Praise for THE VICIOUS DEEP Trilogy:

“This fast-paced read will appeal to Percy Jackson fans who are now older teens; there is plenty of adventure, plus a helping of relationship drama and a sprinkling of humor. . . .the page-turning action is sure to keep [readers] on the edge of their seats. The cliff-hanger ending will leave them clamoring for the next installment.” – School Library Journal

“Tristan’s cocky, dudelike voice feels authentic, and the cliff-hanger ending leaves readers anticipating the next ‘clash of sand and sea.’” – Booklist

“One of the few Latinas working in the hugely popular YA paranormal genre . . . Her books capture the gritty, freak-show cool of Coney Island and explore an otherworldly island populated by sea creatures that are dangerously different than typical Disney lore. The story also has a romantic current that runs through the murky, ever-shifting relationship between Tristan and his childhood-friend-turned-hot-chick Layla Santos.” – Cosmopolitan for Latinas


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 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.

The Ocean is a Vicious Place…

Deeper and darker than Tristan could have imagined. Beneath its calm blue surface, an ancient battle is churning-and no one is safe.

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 in search of the trident that will make him king. But while Tristan chases his destiny, the dark forces racing against him are getting stronger, and the sea witch of his nightmares is getting closer.

Battling sea dragons and savage creatures of the deep, Tristan needs his friends’ support. But they each have their secrets, and a betrayal will force Tristan to choose between his crown and his best friend Layla-the only girl he’s ever loved.

Blood is in the Water…

Two days. That’s all the time Tristan Hart has to prevent all-out war. Since discovering he was part merman and heir to the Sea Throne, Tristan has been fighting for his future, his friends—his life.

Now, to win the crown and save the girl he loves, Tristan will have to take the ultimate risk: unleash the ancient magic of Poseidon and release the kraken. Seriously. It’s the only way to unite the three scattered pieces of the king’s trident and stop the sea witch Nieve from taking the throne for herself.

Tristan’s going to need all the help he can get. But the one person he could always depend on him has betrayed him—Kurt now wants the throne for himself. Brother against brother, it’s a brutal race to the finish, and there can only be one winner.
