The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw






This is one of those books that I read ages ago _ okay, it feels like it was a long, long time ago _ and that got me so mad, that I thought 'what the hell, I'm not even going to bother to write a review for it'... unfortunately it seems that I'm still mad about it, so here it goes!

Premise
Great premise, but extremely poor execution with the story entering cliché land with over used and abused plot lines...
Thing is, when the blurb talks about the three sister's witches?
Yeah... no. The author couldn't even be bothered to develop likeable characters who actually liked one another; no, she had to follow the harpy route, in which each sister pretty much hated/ despised or just plain ignored one another.
Highlight for spoilers...They were not witches, just plain stupid.

Then there's the main character who is as interesting as white bread.
The writing started out decent enough, but then definitely takes a swift turn at purple land.
The "romance"...
Ugh, ugh and ugh. :/   #ConsentWhereAreThou

The guy appears out of nowhere, and she just takes him home to the island where she lives _ ALONE _ with her mother. #ThisIsHowPeopleGetsKilled
 
Of course romance ensues _ not really, but (they just start having sex ) because why not, Love of my life. And the whole thing was strange and icky.

Honestly at this point I just wanted to know what had happened to her father, because the rest was so ludicrous that I was getting migraines from constant eye rolling.
The guy had the emotions of a sociopath and she was basically a leech; worst couple ever!

So, yes, this is one book I definitely cannot recommend. 
p.s. The cover is pretty though.
