-Book Review: The Wicked Deep-Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow-

7:00 AM


Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.

But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

- Review -
The Wicked Deep is so, so amazing! It's about a small town that has a curse and we follow a girl named penny over a few weeks during the summer. The writing style in this book is beautiful. At times I left I was right there in the little sea town. The plot of this book is my favorite part. I felt that the pacing is perfect. I like the overall feel of this book, The spooky, twisty, magic that fills this book. Death is around every cover, and we never really know who we can trust. I don't wait to give anything away because I feel that going in knowing nothing is best.
This is by far my favorite books so far this year. I went in knowing I was going to enjoy this book but I didn't expect to love it as much as I do! I've finished a few weeks back and it's still on my mind. The Wicked Deep is wonderful. I'm now a huge fan of Shea Ernshaw, I personally can't wait to see what her next book it going to be because of this book.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. So, this is a 100% honest review by me.
