The Wicked Deep Reviews
I received this e-arc via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I was looking forward to reading this. I love witches in books. So I had my hopes high. Unfortunately I felt nothing while reading this. For me personally this book lacked atmosphere. The writing certainly didn’t help. I felt that the author was trying to force feeling on you. It simply didn’t feel natural. A book like this requires that.
I did enjoy the characters. And their relationships wit ...more

The residents of the town tied stones to their ankles and drowned them in the deep waters that surrounded the town. Each years since their deaths the sisters have returned to the small town for a period of a couple of weeks to seek their revenge upon the town by inhabiting the bodies of local young women to tempt the young men of the town to their own death.

I am sitting at work, having just finished the final pages of The Wicked Deep, and I'm having a hard time mentally slipping back into reality. My mind is stuck in this book, this wonderful and mysterious book. I cannot escape fictional Sparrow, Oregon.
I think I'm bewitched by the Swan sisters' tale, Bo, and Penny. SOS.
3.5 stars. This is the story of three long-dead witches who come back every summer in the bodies of Sparrow girls to drown boys and the only girl in town who may be able to lift the curse.
This is an exquisitely atmospheric book. The subject matter is, of course, dark, but the way the author presents the town and its curse feels almost magical.
Even though such a curse pertains to the fantasy world and is therefore not a realistic element, I believed everything inside this story. Not once did I ...more
“Love is an enchantress—devious and wild. It sneaks up behind you, soft and gentle and quiet, just before it slits your throat.”
This book was SO much fun.
First of all, you need to understand if you say the word witches I am sold. No questions asked, I want the book. Now, add three sisters accused of witchcraft who come back for revenge *ahem, Hocus Pocus vibes anyone?* and I am so sold there is no possible way I could dislike this book. Yet somehow, I still managed to be blown away by this. Al ...more
The witches are back. And there's hell to pay.
Although Marguerite, Aurora, and Hazel Swan were drowned many moons ago, these wicked sisters still come back every summer to haunt the little town of Sparrow. A town where their souls will forever be rooted because this is the town that took their lives.
These young women were accused of practicing witchcraft and drowned to death, and as long as their souls still haunt the waters surrounding Sparrow: the Swan sisters will come back every year, in ...more
Melancholic, eerie and deeply atmospheric!

Exotic, elegant and sensual, Marguerite, Aurora and Hazel Swan rattle the foundations of the close-knit society with their numerous dalliances and scandalous affairs with men that are not available. Whispers about potions and hexes become cries and screams, and the town of Sparrow finds them guilty of witchcraft in a desperate attempt to defend all thos ...more
First off, this has a GORGEOUS cover. I love the legend and mystery of it. Penny has grown up in a remote coastal town, which has a population of barely anyone, except during tourist season, when people come to see if the ghosts of the Swan sisters, three sisters drowned in the harbor 200 years ago, will resurface. The problem is, every year when they possess the bodies of local girls and lead teenage boys into the harbor, people drown.
This is one of the best YA fantasy books I’ve read this yea ...more
