Reviews

  • "The way Alma Katsu weaves the true story of the Titanic and her sister ship, Britannic, with this dark, terrifying tale of possession and haunting is phenomenal. Part history, part drama, part love story, part creepy-as-heck ghost tale, with chills icier than the watery depths, The Deep is beautifully written, thoroughly absorbing and totally terrifying.'"

    C.J. TUDOR, author of The Chalk Man
  • "At once both tragic and chilling, The Deep perfectly blends psychological thriller and eerie gothic ghost story to create something truly haunting, drawing you down into its dark depths before finally letting you up for air."

    SARAH PINBOROUGH, author of Behind Her Eyes
  • "An incredibly ambitious setting, prose as ornate as the boat, mood as ghostly as Gothic, and what must have been enough research to build a ship of her own . . . The Deep is thrilling, rich, frightening, unsettling, and, best of all, told from the heart . . . The Hunger was fantastic, but The Deep is divine . . . a brilliant author."

    JOSH MALERMAN, author of Bird Box
  • "Deftly mashes up spellbinding historical fiction, adroit commentary on class and gender, and a classic yet surprising ghost story . . . truly haunting."

    PAUL TREMBLAY, author of The Cabin at the End of the World
  • "Takes us back to the final days of the Titanic, her sister ship the Britannic, and the mysterious woman who links them both. In a haunting story of love and revenge, Alma Katsu blends the paranormal and historical fiction as only she can—a spellbinding tale where desire knows no bounds and death is only a beginning. Another fantastic story from the author of The Hunger."

    J D BARKER, author of The Sixth Wicked Child
  • "Alma Katsu is a fantastic writer, with a unique ability to blur the lines of history, horror, humanity, and tragedy. Think Diana Gabaldon by way of Charlaine Harris. As with her exceptional novel, The Hunger, in The Deep Katsu takes on an infamous tragedy and adds her own haunting twists."

    MICHAEL KORYTA, author of Those Who Wish Me Dead
  • "Like The Hunger, The Deep is historical re-imagining laced with magic and mystery. Alma Katsu adds a sweeping love story and a ghostly tale of revenge to the sinkings of RMS Titanic and HMHS Britannic to tell a tale that is haunting, thrilling and utterly original."
