The Wicked Deep

Shea Ernshaw

In Ernshaw’s chilling debut, three sisters are out for revenge and love may be the only thing powerful enough to stop them. For 200 years, the tiny town of Sparrow, Oregon has been haunted by the Swan sisters who were sentenced to death for witchcraft and drowned in the harbor. Every year during the Swan Festival, the spirits return and steal the bodies of three girls so they can get their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under. It's an event that Penny Talbot, 17, who lives with her unstable mother, would rather avoid. On the eve of the Festival, Bo Carter arrives in Sparrow looking for work and a place to stay. Penny knows he's hiding something, but she's still attracted to Bo and will race against time to save him from the murderous curse.
