This epic clash of sand and sea will pit brother against brother-and there can only be one winner

In two days, the race for the Sea Court throne will be over-but all the rules have changed. The sea witch, Nieve, has kidnapped Layla and is raising an army of mutant sea creatures to overthrow the crown. Kurt, the one person Tristan could depend on in the battle for the Sea King's throne, has betrayed him. Now Kurt wants the throne for himself. Tristan has the Scepter of the Earth, but it's not enough. He'll have to travel to the mysterious, lost Isle of Tears and unleash the magic that first created the king's powerful scepter. It's a brutal race to the finish, and there can only be one winner.

The final installment to the Vicious Deep series was fast paced yet well balanced. The novel's action served well to enrich the great series without overdoing it. There were scenes where it wasn't all about the thrill of killer mermaids but also scenes where it was all about that.
The Vicious Deep was an incredible race to the finish for sure but as it neared the end, I had the slight feeling that it was a little bit too rushed. I wanted to know more about things that I never got to know about and for a curious person like me, that was a little annoying. I felt like there was more to know about what happened with his family. Other than that little part, I loved how the book brought the whole series together, surprising me with a little twist from the ending I'd expect reading the series.
The book is a must read so if you haven't read the series yet, get it together! You'll want to start now. Zoraida wrote a great finale to the series and I'm sure you're going to want to know who gets the throne. I can't wait to see what she has for us next though I'm sad to leave Tristan and the rest of the characters behind. I especially recommend this book and the whole series to anyone who loves a good book with anything to do with water. Happy reading! Get to it!
