Publisher's Summary

Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meets the Salem witch trials in this haunting story about three sisters on a quest for revenge - and how love may be the only thing powerful enough to stop them.

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, 17-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.

The story was good but the narrator had this monotone voice.I found myself falling asleep a couple of times.

I tried...

I decided to give this book a shot, despite some of the negative reviews and I had a hard time with it. The story itself is very interesting but I could not get past the narrator. Her voice was so flat and kept putting me to sleep.

The Wicked Deep

I really enjoyed this book and it constantly had be guessing. I loved how the chapters would finish with a small bit of info into the past just to give you a bit more of story, bit by bit.
I had so many questions during this book and it all came together into the end. Kept me listening. Kept me wanting more information. Loved it!!!

Young Teen book without a story or plot

What disappointed you about The Wicked Deep?

In my family's opinion the author ONLY focused on appealing to Young Teen girls with over the top descriptions of every last single emotion the characters felt and lots of manufactured drama. This emotional over explanation felt like filler instead of tools to help develop the plot.The over the top teen drama made it impossible to finish. My family, including two teen girls, started this book on a recent road trip stopped listening after 3 hours. I quote "Finally" was the teens' response when I switched to the radio. They went on to ask "where was that story going to go and why was she, the main character, so dumb." I think the issue was in character development, if you are going to use supernatural powers you have to explain their limits early to the reader. Instead we know exactly how she felt about every last darn thing she encountered.

Would you ever listen to anything by Shea Ernshaw again?

No.

What does Casey Turner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Too much teen drama.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I couldn't find a redeeming quality if I tried.

Can we have more books like this!!

I loved this book so much, I’m off to find it in hardback today! Great suspenseful story that is performed in a soft dream like rhythm that plays well to the tail! I give this book 5 stars and WILL be reading it once more as soon as I can get my hands on it!

Meh...

I was intrigued at first but as it went on I found it very teen fantasy romance. It went in the obvious direction and I hoped for more from this book. I felt there were a few directions it could have taken that would have made it a much better story. Simple. So like I said... meh.

Snooze

Maybe I am just too old for this book but it was especially boring despite having a wonderful narrator.
They compare this to Practical Magic and it is nothing like it. This is so teenagery and predictable.

A Fantastic and Eerie Story

What three words best describe Casey Turner’s voice?

Eerie, soft, and calm.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the story so much. The concept was fantastic and I wish we could get more. I wish we could get to know the love interest a bit more as well. He was just there. I don't know how else to explain it, but Bo was just there. We don't get a sense of who he is.

Romance, tragedy, a touch of witchery, perfect.

The Wicked Deep is a beautiful, haunting love story that drew me in and crept inside me.
