Waiting on Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I'm intrigued by...

Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh

Publisher: Sky Pony Press
Published Date: September 2016

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.

Soon, villagers are vanishing in the night, but no one shares Bridey’s suspicions about the sea. No one but the island’s witch, who isn’t as frightening as she first appears, and the handsome dark-haired lad Bridey rescues from a grim and watery fate. The cause of the deep gashes in Fynn’s stomach and his lost memories are, like the recent disappearances, a mystery well-guarded by the sea. In exchange for saving his life, Fynn teaches Bridey to master her fear of the water — stealing her heart in the process.

Now, Bridey must work with the Isle’s eccentric witch and the boy she isn’t sure she can trust — because if she can’t uncover the truth about the ancient evil in the water, everyone she loves will walk into the sea, never to return.

I'm definitely liking the sounds of this one! And the cover is beautiful. The only downside? Having to wait until September 2016!

    1. I'm wondering if it maybe just had its cover revealed, so that's why it's popping up more and more? I'm not sure. Definitely seems to be one to read though! :-)

  3. Great choice! This one sounds like a book I will absolutely love. A historical mystery set in one of my favorite periods with witches? Sign me up.
