I just finished reading The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw.  I loved it.

Page 56 happens to blank, so this excerpt is from page 57:

“From the black waters of the harbor, their song sinks into dreams, permeates the brittle grass that grows along steep cliffs and rotting homes.  It settles into the stones that hold up the lighthouse; it floats and swirls in the air until it’s all you can taste and breathe.

“This is how they do it– how the sisters are freed from their brackish grave.  They steal three bodies and make them their own.  And this season, they do it swiftly.”

This book was well written without being to flowery.  It was dark and macabre without being scary or morbid.  It left me with a lot to think about in terms of love, loss and identity.

Let me know if you participate in The Friday 56.

Hope you have a great weekend ahead of you!
