Title: Fear the Drowning Deep
Author: Sarah Glenn Marsh
Genre: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Romance, Paranormal
Set in the year of 1913, Fear the Drowning Deep starts off with the tide bringing in a young, dead girl to the shores of the Isle of Man. This event, in turn, catalyzes sixteen-year-old Bridey Corkill’s suspicions about the evil lurking underneath the ocean – the same mysterious force that compelled her granddad to leap into the sea with a smile on his face, never to be seen above the water’s surface ever again.
Soon enough, villagers begin to vanish without reason (or so it seems) in the night. With the body count of missing people continually increasing, Bridey is forced to take matters into her own hands by confronting the very thing she’s spent years fearing the most: the sea. Otherwise, she might lose more of her loved ones to the treacherous waves.
