Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.
Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.
Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.
Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
Did enjoy the story idea for this book. In the beginning for me was kinda of a slow burn. Thankful for an nice twist that had turn the book around for. Both main characters I did like. They each have their own secrets and story to tell.
Like Penny story, she feeling stuck on the island. Have no directions to go in life. Until she meets Bo, who shows her there more to life. Can she really trust Bo an outsider of the island of is he doom to be taken by the sisters curse?
Book was a quick read for me. Lots of twists and turns towards the middle of the book. It’s an an good standalone fantasy book, for witch lovers.
Ready to go to Sparrow and watch the sisters destroy lives?
