I did something unusual with Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather. I read immediately after finishing How to Hang a Witch. Guys I barely read the same genre back to back let alone the same author or series! I really was intrigued by Mather’s storytelling and I wanted more!
Haunting the Deep is largely about the Titanic and the people who sailed on the doomed vessel. Not once has it ever occurred to me what it must have been like to be one of the survivors. A victim? Countless times. But I have never contemplated what being a survivor past that night was like. I can’t imagine the survivor’s guilt and post traumatic stress that kind of event would produce. Haunting the Deep spends time on the ship and Sam is a passenger on the Titanic. We see events through her point of view. Sometimes that point of view is confused but slowly Mather starts to weave the story together.
My enjoyment of Haunting the Deep was kind of dampened by one of the love interests again. I can’t get past it but it certainly didn’t ruin the enjoyment of the book. I really liked that we got to see more of the Descendants in this book. Turns out they aren’t so bad. I will say that I had the perpetrator of this book figured out fairly quickly. Motive? Not so much and that was enough to keep my interest.
Based on the fact that Adriana Mather held my interest for two books and didn’t cause a burn out means I’ll be picking up whatever that woman writes.
