Synopsis: A storm is coming…
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.
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. Her favorite things are sparkly like merdudes, Christmas, and New York City at night.
– Where did your love for mermaids come from? Or shall I say “merdudes”, hah!
Mermaids are magical and mysterious and I’ve always been drawn to them. Mermen are a little strange in the folktales. They’re often described as fugly things at the bottom of the ocean. This might explain why mermaids are always coming up to drown some beautiful human sailors. But I love the myths so much that I wanted to include my own.
– If you could be any Disney princess, which would you be and why?
I was talking to someone about this the other day. About how I no longer identify with the Disney princesses. It used to be Ariel, Pocahontas and Jasmine were my favorite ones. But lately, I’ve been identifying more with the evil queens. Yes, I’m trying to take over the world.
– What is your favorite swear word?
For some reason I really like saying “shit” in a southern accent. Shieeet.
– What is your biggest pet peeve?
People who don’t tip and treat waitstaff and bartenders like servants. People who do this turn me into HULK Z SMASH. Shieeet.
– Your favorite song at the moment?
Mirrors by JT (don’t hate, yo!)
If I Didn’t Know Better from the Nashville sountrack. GODS, this song. Holy shieet.
– Favorite book you’ve read so far this year?
It’s a toss up between DRINK SLAY LOVE by Sarah Beth Durst and DREAMLAND SOCIAL CLUB by Tara Altebrado.
