Teen Book Scene: Tristan's This or That List


Introducing the author of THE VICIOUS DEEP, Zoraida Cordova...

Zoraida Córdova was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, where she learned to speak English by watching Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker on repeat. She made her way up north and now works in the glittering New York City nightlife. Her favorite things are sparkly like merdudes, Christmas, and New York City at night.

Onto Tristan's This or That List...

Books or Movies?
Depends on my mood. Usually, movies.

Snickers or Sour patch kids?
Sour patch all the way.

Converse or Boots?
I prefer to be barefoot. But I love my Chucks. My mom keeps trying to WASH them. Can you believe that?

Call or Text?
I prefer to be textually active.

Laptop or PC?
I'm not really a computer guy.

Radio or Playlists?
Radio. It's the only way I find new songs.

Hair style: Gel or Natural?
Natural.

Winter or Summer?
Summer!

Cynic or Romantic?
Romantic. Don't tell anyone.

Movies: Thriller or Horror?
Neither. I'm more of a comedy kind of guy.


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.



Thanks to Zoraida (& Tristan) and Teen Book Scene!
