Haunting the Deep (How to Hang a Witch #2) by Adriana Mather book review




The Titanic meets the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of Mean Girls in this follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch, in which a contemporary teen finds herself a passenger on the famous “ship of dreams”—a story made all the more fascinating because the author’s own relatives survived the doomed voyage.

Samantha Mather knew her family’s connection to the infamous Salem Witch Trials might pose obstacles to an active social life. But having survived one curse, she never thought she’d find herself at the center of a new one.

This time, Sam is having recurring dreams about the Titanic . . . where she’s been walking the deck with first-class passengers, like her aunt and uncle. Meanwhile, in Sam’s waking life, strange missives from the Titanic have been finding their way to her, along with haunting visions of people who went down with the ship.

Ultimately, Sam and the Descendants, along with some help from heartthrob Elijah, must unravel who is behind the spell that is drawing her ever further into the dream ship . . . and closer to sharing the same grim fate as its ghostly passengers.


I really enjoyed reading this book! I did not read the first book in the series but this book still mad perfect sense without having read the first. Also nothing seemed to be too spoiled from book one to keep me from reading it. The writing style is beautiful and flawless and I greatly enjoyed the overall plot. I love how vivid and imaginative the book was. And if i’m not mistaken the author has family that was on the actual Titanic, so you could tell the topic was well researched. The characters are amazing and each one helps build the others. There was no one in the background and no character was irrelevant. Super fun read! Slightly spooky, and slightly eerie! I’d def recommend it!
