The Wicked Deep Reviews
I love books about witches and had seen so many people talking about this book, so I was pretty excited to read it.
I loved Penny and Bo. There are several other characters, but I don’t want to go into details because spoilers. The relationships are one of the best parts of this story.
Plot wise, it was just okay. I was expecting a lot of tension that wasn’t there and at times, the atmosphere felt forced. The build up is slow and the first half or so of the book felt meh—I could have ea ...more
We wait for death. We hold our breath.
We know it's coming, and still we flinch when it claws at our throats and pulls us under.
3.75 stars for a haunting, beautifully written read.
The Wicked Deep is the kind of book that you think about when you close your eyes on a long car journey -- the kind which evokes memories of gold-lettered 19th century perfumery signs on peeling black wood, of briny sea salt and white-tipped waves, of girls with flowing hair and white dresses spilling out around cor ...more
I can't believe I read this whole thing in one afternoon!
This is the first time in a long time that I've read a whole book in a day and it feels amazing!
I honestly enjoyed this more than I thought I was going to
It was so interesting, imaginative, enchanting, atmospheric and spooky and I was hooked from the start. It was so addictive to read, and I just didn't want to do anything else until I'd finished it
It was such a marvellous book, and I think it might be going on a list of my favouri ...more
This book was amazing! It did have a Hocus Pocus vibe but without all the humor. You can feel the magic radiating when you first start reading. It focuses more around Penny and Bo and wondering how to stop the sisters. I thought the author did a great job of keeping the reader on your toes. I also loved that the backstory of the Swan Sisters is included a little bit at a time at the beginning of each chapter or two. Very enjoyable read!
Penny is seventeen and it's the end of her junior year. Tomo ...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
Love story was a bit too much for me and it happend a little too fast but other than that I really enjoyed it. The story itself is quite unique.
I liked the writing style. Metaphors might have been a little over the top sometimes but some were really beautiful.
The twist was a little obvious but that didn't bug me that much. It was still really interesting.
I'm torn about the ending though. I technically loved it but especially the last few sentences felt wrong to me. Can't really explain why bu ...more
Two centuries ago in the small town of Sparrow three sisters were accused of being witches and put to death. 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 cannot believe how good this was! I feel like the wind was just knocked out of me. I'm speechless! Please let this become a movie! Please let this become a movie! Please let this become a movie! *clicks my ruby slippers together as many times as it takes*
I'm going to try to settle down here for a second so that I can try to form a somewhat coherent review. Bear with me. lol
The writing in this book was STUNNING! There were so many times when I would have to slow down and read the book out loud ...more
