The Dwarf Did It...

The Wicked Deep


The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

“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. ” ~Description from Goodreads

My Review

The Wicked Deep was the first book club read of the year! I was really excited to read this book because it had been on my TBR foooooorreevvvveeerrrrr. Everyone who follows me KNOWS that any book involving pirates, witches and vikings I’m pretty much sold. This book is a “witchy” book and I’m just going to say right now that I am obsessed with the cover of this book. I have it on display just so I can watch the light reflect off it every time I walk by my shelf.

This book was a fast read. I tried really hard not to read past the book club discussion chapters but it was impossible. If I am being totally honest, I have mixed opinions about this book. I loved the setting of this book. The town totally came to life in my mind. I loved the back story before every chapter that was a glimpse into the past and info about the Swan sisters and what lead to the curse surrounding the town. For me the book fell short with the characters. I didn’t think the character building was all there and as a result I didnt fall in love with the characters. I actually LOVED the ending to this book. The story itself did invoke all the feels.

Over all this book was entertaining and I would recommend it.  It is a nice story about a town’s past haunting it for generations. It’s a quick story of love and revenge. I am going to give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I probably will not read it again but I had a great experience with this book.
