First I would like to thank Sarah Glenn Marsh & Brittany from Brittany´s Book Rambles for giving us the opportunity of participating in this amazing tour! THANK YOU!
After finishing this amazing book, there´s one thing I have to say…
Fear The Drowning Deep is the book that you need in your life, trust me.
A while ago, when Sarah and other readers started to talk about the book I was curious, so I went to goodreads to look for it and once I read the synopsis I was obsessed. I immediately added it to my TBR. I was super sad at the same time because when I added it I noticed the release date and I couldn´t believe that I had to wait a whole year to read it.
*sad face *
Meanwhile I was thinking:
Will I love the book?
Will it have an amazing plot?
Will I be awake late reading it?
Will it have swoon scenes and a perfect boy?
And GUESS WHAT?
I had the amazing opportunity of reading this book before the release date and the answer to all those questions is a simply and magnificent *YES. *
So I will try to tell you all my thoughts about everything while being careful of not giving away any spoilers I promise ;D
So let´s talk about the cover first. I LOVE IT! It kind of gives me the chills if you ask me, because I´m terrified of the sensation of not feeling the ground. After finisihing the story and meeting the MC Bridey Corkill I totally think the cover fits the book perfectly.
The book started with the most killer and perfect first sentence, it completely captured my attention and I… I just couldn´t put the book down.
I needed to know what happened next.
The characters of this story were perfect. They will for sure find a place in your heart. I loved every single one of them, except for some
*rolls eyes at certain characters. *
My two favorite characters of this story were Bridey and Fynn * swoons *. Bridey was the kind of girl who, at the beginning, was terrified of the water because of her granddad´s death, but then she knew she had to master her own fears in order to protect those who meant the world to her. What I admired about her was that, she didn´t cared about what other people said or the faces they made when she was closer. On the contrary, it made her stronger. Fynn on the other hand… I can tell you for sure that I added him to my list of bookboyfriends and he´s in the very top. Fynn was a mystery to me, he was handsome, brave and had a big heart.
But I had more favorite characters like Catreena and Lugh, Bridey`s best Friends, her sisters and Morag, the Witch of Port Coir that everyone seemed to be scared of, but that at the end will surprise you.
As I read the last page I felt something in my heart, maybe it sounds silly, but since I started to read this book I became very fond of all the characters that made this story perfect and unique, and I was worried that something could happen to them.
And the end? It was a perfect ending for a perfect story.
In other words, the story was amazing, I was intrigued of what would happen next, till the very end. There will be a time in which you won`t be able to put the book down, due to twists, which I didn´t see coming; and amazing scenes that made me love the story even more.
I had lots of feelings like fear, happiness and sadness, those feelings meant that I really enjoyed the story. I had fear for…. I had happiness for… I had sadness for… [ And if you want to know what those “…” are for, then you should better add it to your ¨TBR¨.
This book is the kind of story in which you will get lost in the words, time will pass by and you will forget about everything else. It was a world full of fantastical creatures that once you finished reading about them and this magnificent world, you will want to go back.
Sarah´s way of writing will make readers feel part of this wonderful story since the very first page, she created a journey that they will never want to leave.
