It’s Friday, and what better way to end the week than with a cover reveal!
When we heard Shea Ernshaw’s upcoming The Wicked Deep described as “Hocus Pocus and Practical Magic meets the Salem Witch trials,” we were immediately on board. Now that we’ve seen this striking cover (which was just revealed on Hypable earlier today), we need this book in our hands NOW! Set on the coast of Oregon with its rocky beaches, haunting islands, and eerie lighthouses, this seductive tale follows three sisters who return every summer to exact their revenge on the town that killed them for witchcraft two centuries ago. With witches, a centuries old curse, and even a forbidden romance, The Wicked Deep definitely seems to be ticking all the right boxes. This one’s for sure getting moved high up on our TBR pile! Sadly, it won’t be available until March 6, 2018 so we’ve got quite a wait ahead of us, though there’s certainly no lack of reads to help us pass the time!
Take a closer look at the cover below and find out a little more about The Wicked Deep!
The Wicked Deep

About the Book:
Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.
Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.
Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.
Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
