Witch’s apprentice Bridey Corkill has hated the ocean ever since she watched her granddad dive in and drown with a smile on his face. So when a dead girl rolls in with the tide in the summer of 1913, sixteen-year-old Bridey suspects that whatever compelled her granddad to leap into the sea has made its return to the Isle of Man.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Fear the Drowning Deep for an honest review.
Fear the Drowning Deep is magically unique with a cool eerie feel. I have read a bunch of fantasy books with mythological creatures, this book really stands out as different and in a class all of its own. This book has a historical, folk-tale feel to it. The mystery starts in the first page and keeps you gripped until the last page.
A girl shows up having drowned. It soon gets everyone gossiping. Bridley is afraid of the water and what lurks out there. She remembers years ago her grandfather being lured off the cliff by something and she thinks maybe it is happening again.
Bradley start working for an old lady who is known as a witch in the town. She is scared of what rumors may be true about her. One day when she is working down by the shore she finds a boy injured and decides to take him home and help him.
What is luring people into the ocean and why are people showing up dead on the shore? Can a relationship with a new stranger last?
Fear the Drowning Deep is a mysterious, magical, watery tale. I did have issues with the relationship, it was a little fast and was not necessarily a romance. If you are looking for something different that will keep you wanting more than this is the book for you. I would definitely recommend it and I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
