I recently finished reading The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. This story is about three sisters who were accused of being witches over 200 years ago. The towns people, scared and outraged, tie rocks to their feet and drown them in the harbor. Now every summer they come back to haunt the small town of Sparrow and take victims back with them into the murky depths.
This book sounded pretty spooky. I was excited to read it for October, but I only gave it 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the beginning and the end but the middle lacked something for me. I wanted more spooky scenes and more of the witches. I almost didn’t want to finish it but I’m glad I stuck in there, the ending was worth it.
The romance in this book was unexpected. I was wanting a scary story about witches so when we were trust into this romance I was a little put off. I understand why Shea Ernshaw had to set up this part of the story but it didn’t really come to light until the end and then it all felt a little rushed.
Overall I think this is a nice easy read. It’s 308 pages but there are a lot of blank pages in-between the chapters which makes it go by pretty fast. If you can make it past the middle section the ending is definitely worth it! The plot twist towards the end was perfect! That’s the action I was craving towards the middle.
Have you read The Wicked Deep? What did you think? I would love to know in the comments below.
