The Deep – Alma Katsu

46158562. sy475

★★ ½

My dear daughter, Annie, disappeared unexpectedly from our home…My wife and I have been searching for her ever since.

Annie was lost, and now she is found…somewhat.

Annie has spent the last four years living in a rather unconventional home.

Annie has come to understand the erratic ways of the insane….But no, she is not one of them.

And when she’s released, she finds herself drawn to somewhere she never thought possible.

No. Now is not the time to mourn. If she looks back too long, she knows what will happen…How the grief and the loss and the horror will be too much.

She’s on the Britannic, the sister ship of the Titanic, who traveled a doomed path across the Atlantic.

And back on it she is again…and this time she’s not alone.

I pray that you will be able to end our nightmare…

There’s something plaguing the ship. Something sinister and supernatural. Something only she is able to see.

Ahhhh… this one was solidly written, just the content threw me off.

I just never felt particularly connected to the characters.

Other than Annie, I didn’t really enjoy most of them. They didn’t feel vibrant to me and I couldn’t get a good grasp on their personalities. I mostly got annoyed with their decision-making skills.

The plot just kind of happened. It was one of those winding plots where it meanders through the storyline without a ton of plot progress.

There were aspects that I enjoyed. The supernatural bit was intriguing but I was frustrated by the pacing.

Overall, this one wasn’t just for me.

I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
