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.

The Savage Blue picks up where The Vicious Deep left off. Tristan and his group are now in search of the three pieces are the Trident in order to secure Tristan's claim to the throne.

While I really enjoyed The Vicious Deep, there is a part of me that loved The Savage Blue ten times more. Maybe it was the action. Maybe it was being able to get a better understanding of our characters and what they are going through. Honestly, I am not really too sure. But whatever it was that was lacking from The Vicious Deep, The Savage Blue more than made up for it.

The Savage Blue really took this series to the next level. Am I in love with everything that happened? No, not exactly. However, there is so much promise for this series, and if things keep going the way that they are, I know that I will sure be in a ride for the next installment.

Final Verdict:

Like The Vicious Deep, The Savage Blue had a few minor issues. Mainly over descriptive details in some areas, glossing over points that I thought should have been explored more in others. Is it a series breaker? No. Can I live with it? Absolutely. Overall, this issue is very minor indeed, and probably more of a personal preference anyways. If you are looking for something completely different involving mermaids, give this series a try.
