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


Book Summary:

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.

My Review:

I really love diving into the world of Adriana Mather again. The author who wrote How to hang a witch. Love the history of the Titanic and how it was brought to life in this book. Watching Sam to try to balance between pleasing her father wishes and wanting to do magic with her new friends. Seeing how Sam has grow since book two was a nice touch also. Enjoy little back story of Sam mom and her father on what happen between them. It was a good fun Halloween for Oct or anytime of the year. If you have yet read the first book, here is my review of it, How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather. Happy Reading!

  1. I thought Lizzie might become an antagonist in this bool, not liking that she no longer had complete control over the other girls. So I was quite surprised that she is just gone.

    I was also surprised to learn that Niki is the girl who shows up a couple of times in the first book. She seems completely different here, though to be fair we only met her very briefly in How to Hang a Witch. But it seemed like she an Jaxon were at least casually friendly, so why is everyone so surprised about them getting together in this book? I wonder if some scenes with her (and Blair?) got left on the cutting room floor in the first book?

    According to Adriana Mather’s twitter, she has an idea for the third book, but nothing has been green lit yet. I also tweeted her back after the first book about the possibility of prequel, and she confirmed that she has thought about it. But we will have to see if either of them end up happening.
