The Wicked Deep Reviews
I have a lot of feelings. A lot of feelings.
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
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
Although I did see the plot twist, I really enjoyed this book.
I feel the plot twist is hinted in the lead up to the reveal, and that is probably why I saw it coming, but it doesn't change the way I feel.
The writing was exquisite, the plot was amazing, and the character development was something I enjoyed seeing. Everything is rounded off nicely at the end, leaving me with all my questions answered.
There is no doubt that this is one of the best books I have read in 2018. Highly recommend!
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 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
Love is an enchantress-- devious and wild.
It sneaks up behind you, soft and gentle and quiet, just before it slits your throat.
Well goddamn this book took me by surprise. I read and finished this book roughly a week ago. I was so conflicted on how I felt about it, that I couldn't formulate a proper review or even rate it. But now, sitting on these thoughts and how this book made me feel, I don't think I'll ever come to a concrete conclusion.
But boy oh fucking boy.
This book was so slow, deli ...more

Rating 5 Stars!!!!
ONCE AGAIN THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS (mine pretty much all do but still warning you again)
Yes you did not read it wrong I rated a book five stars. That is a rarity and there will be plenty of reasons why for this book impressed me so much and grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let go until I finished the last page.
I'll admit I'm still a little in shock about this one book. I have been in a bit of a ...more
