Wow!! Never have I read a novel like this! Kept me up until 3 am finishing this tale.
I always love when Titanic is the backdrop of the story!! And to add to the double pleasure of HMHS Britannic making her appearance too!
I loved the way the author could make me feel like I was aboard both ships.
How awful it must have been to be a survivor of Titanic and have to live with that the rest of your life!! I simply couldn't imagine that!!
And the poor ship!! Imagine how she felt while dying right along

I loved her previous novel, The Hunger - speculative fiction based on the Donner Party crossing.

Now in in her latest release, she focuses on passengers aboard the Titanic and Britannic!

I love the back-and-forth time periods, and character development as the story becomes more entangled :)

If you love niche history, on topics but never seem to be get boring, you’ll love her writing too!

5 stars

This story is told over the period of time between 1912 with the maiden voyage of the Titanic and 1916 with the last voyage of the Titanic's sister ship, the Britannic. Originally a luxury liner like the Titanic, the Britannic was converted into a hospital ship during WWI.

The main character in this book is Annie Hebbley. She is a young Irish woman who is running from her past. She is carrying a whole load of guilt, but the reader doesn't know why until later in the book. Annie has proble

I received a copy of this from the publisher and NetGalley, (THANK YOU!) All opinions are my own.

A terrible thing happens to me when I really love a book. I get tongue-tied, my brain goes blank, I can’t unravel the thoughts in my head and put them into cohesive sentences for the world. Lord help me.

I knew I would love this book. A

This book was received as an ARC from PENGUIN GROUP Putnam - G.P. Putnam's Sons in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Hearing and reading so many adaptations of the Titanic, my mind was filled with so much info that it became hard to comprehend but when I read the description expecting a completely different story, I was surprised that the main focus of this book was looking into the aftermath of the Titanic of the passengers point

A nice little thriller about a woman who isn't sure of who she is, imposter syndrome among the upper class, the Titanic, and the Britannic. A young woman flees home and takes a job as a stewardess on the Titanic, where she's plagued by memories that don't seem to be hers and demanding first-class passengers who believe in the occult. She survives, and takes a position as a nurse on the Britannic, where she encounters a man she knew from her earlier work. There are indeed supernatural forces afoo ...more

This horror tells the story of Annie, a survivor of the Titanic. Is there a ghost on the ship? A boy dies after being lured to jump off the ship and everyone is spooked, even consulting a séance to validate their fears of a malevolent spirit. Going back and forth 4 years from the Titanic’s demise and the voyage of the Britannic, this book interested me enough to finish it, but I feel that the scary bits were too far apart to sustain it. I was ready to be spooked and there are a couple of instanc ...more

I had one heck of a time getting into this novel. Katsu’s The Hunger was one of my very favorite books of last year and I assumed The Deep would be an equal to that. I thought this book was interesting and well written, but it lacked whatever I needed to connect with it and ultimately did not finish it, although I almost got there. I did not enjoy the back and fourth between years and I found that there were too many characters. I love this author’s style of writing and the historical aspects of ...more

Thanks to Netgalley and the author for the chance to read and review!
This was So GOOD!
A little creepy, mystery, action, I had to read it in one sitting and know I will have to buy a copy for my shelf! Fantastic read!
