    I love Adriana's writing style and, even amongst magic and ghosts, her characters are relatable.

    'Haunting the Deep' is a wonderful second installment in a young adult paranormal series that brings Salem's infamous Witch Trials into the twenty-first century. I've always been incredibly fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials - there's so much interesting history and so many stories surrounding them.

    'Haunting the Deep' is a wonderful second installment in a young adult paranormal series that brings Salem's infamous Witch Trials into the twenty-first century. I've always been incredibly fascinated by the Salem Witch Trials - there's so much interesting history and so many stories surrounding them. With this book, the author included the infamous Titanic tragedy and managed to infuse Salem and its magic with the past in a way that felt believable. After loving the first book, I have to admit that I had high hopes for this novel - and I'm so happy that I wasn't disappointed in the least. The author does another superb job weaving together history, superstition, modern teenage problems, and magic to create an awesome novel that had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved basically everything about the book and have no real complaints (except that I wished it could've been longer and possibly a bit creepier, but that's just my personal opinion).

    The characters were all well rounded with unique traits and personalities - especially our main character, Samantha "Sam" Mather. I really connected with her early on in the story and I loved getting to know her on an even deeper level (after the first book) and discovering all the strange things about the Titanic and it's history alongside her. She's smart, a good student, a loving daughter, and down to earth - but she's quite straightforward and has a sarcastic attitude. She was an great mix of snarky and sweet - bold but shy and unsure at the same time. The book is told from Sam's point of view, which really allows the reader to connect with her on a deeply personal level. By the end of the book, it felt like I had been right beside Sam during the entire story. If you've read my reviews before, you know I'm a huge advocate of the first person point of view - which is no exception with this book.

    Every other aspect of the novel was well done - the setting was perfect, the plot was enticing and full of great supernatural twists and historical aspects, and the writing itself was fluid and had a quick pace. I was sucked into Sam's world from the very first page and I didn't stop reading until I had finished the entire book - which only took a few hours. All of the elements in the novel worked very well together and they came together to create a really fascinating and fun book that fans of the genre will be sure to love. Very highly recommended for fans of paranormal, fantasy, historical fiction, and contemporary fiction!

    Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    This was one hell of a book! I was completely

    in the story. Adriana Mather's writing definitely made me feel like I was in the Titanic. I was anxious about Sam and how she's going to get out of this one. I definitely recommend this book if you enjoyed

    . Actually, this was so much better than the first book.

    Adriana Mather returns to Salem in HAUNTING THE DEEP, with yet another propulsive, intricate mystery. Fans of HOW TO HANG A WITCH will be glad to see that everything Mather did so skillfully in HOW TO HANG A WITCH is even more fully on display here—the pace; the chemistry; the twists; the living, breathing characters. If you're looking for a book that will grab you and keep you turning pages right up until the end, look no further!

    A gloriously creepy and fun return to the witchy, haunted world of HOW TO HANG A WITCH--now with more ghosts, more spooky-as-hell magic, more kickass teen girls fighting evil with flair, and terrifying visits to the grandmother of all ghost ships.

    Oh, and my ghost boyfriend, obviously. YOU STILL CAN'T HAVE HIM. HE'S MINE.

    Seriously, this is such a fun sequel. Perfect continuation of the first book, with more of everything that made that one so fantastic, and the spooks and story and history are w

    I am always concerned when an author writes a sequel to a well loved book (in this case, "How To Hang A Witch"). Often I find second attempts disappointing at best. However, I was more than thrilled with Ms. Mather's second novel. The blend from one storyline/book to another was seamless, and anyone that's tried to write even short stories knows how difficult that can be.

    I was thrilled to see a dynamic similar to "The Craft," at least in the beginning, and I spent much of the book imagining one

    I was thrilled to see a dynamic similar to "The Craft," at least in the beginning, and I spent much of the book imagining one of the characters as Fairuza Balk, which amused me to no end.

    As I don't want to spoil the book, I won't go into further detail regarding the story. I will say it is an easy read with a nice flow and good character development. I cannot wait for the next installment!

    Such a heart wrenching second book. Action and adventure on every page. Many unexpected twists and turns. I highly recommend it!

  • HopelessBookAddict

    Ughhhhhh I liked this but it was somewhat ruined for me due to the love story aspect. It was just annoying. I am salty she did not pick who I liked lol. But other than that it was a great book. Not as good as the first but still good. The character growth was great. Still loved their relationships, the suspense, and the twists.

  • Colleen Houck

    I loved this one just as much as the first. I felt like I was right there on the Titanic with the heroine. I could feel the cold in the air and my hands were clenching the rope. I also crave baked goods every time I step into this world. Love that baking neighbor lady. Mmmm eclairs...
