The cover is just breathtaking. The font of the title just jumps out at you. The two people standing on the edge of the cliff with the darkness behind them is just....amazing. This is most defintely one of my most favorite covers of this year!!
I read the synposis of this book and was just in awe. April Tucholke weaves a dark, seductive, creepy story in a way that holds the readers attention until the last page. The descriptions writtin in this book of the scenery makes you feel as though you are right there on the side of the cliff experiencing every horrific moment with them.
Even the main characters names: Violet and River....Those names were so perfectly placed in this story. There is just something about their names that grab you and bring you into this story. There is so much mystery and intensity in this novel.
"You stop fearing the Devil when you're holding his hand."
Violet meets River, a mysterious young boy who has rented her grandmother's cottage that is beside her mansion on the cliff. Violet is immediately drawn to River and introduces him to her friends. This is where it all begins. There is so much horror and mystery in this novel and I was completeyl consumed with it. Breathtaking is the only word that best fits this novel.
April Genevieve Tucholke is an author that should be on your "to follow list" because she is phenomenal. She is a debut author that breaks into all the parts of the horror genre that you never knew were there....The history and descriptions that she uses in her writing is spot on. There is so much about this book that is incredible from the stories about The Devil that her grandmother told her to the family secrets that have been hidden away for too long.....
I am telling you...I cannot rave enough about this book...I will wait on pins and needles until I can get my hands on the sequel. I absolutely cant wait to see where APril Genevieve Tucholke takes this riveting, horrifying story. Phenomenal...Just phenomenal.....
"The dead are all around us, Freddie used to say. So don't you go being afraid of the dead, Violet, And if you arent afraid of the dead, then you aren't afraid of dying. And if you aren't afraid of dying, then the only damn thing you have to be afraid of is the Devil. And that is the way it should be...."
Obviously this book is gorgeous. From the cover to the prose to the gothic and dark atmosphere. I did really enjoy reading it. In fact, I could hardly put it down. It was an interesting and mysterious and haunting book, which I liked. I actually think fans of Edgar Allan Poe would like it also.
What I didn't like were some of the characters. Violet I had probably the most issues with. It wasn't that she was a bad main character or anything but I just couldn't totally like her with her. She seemed too... disconnected from everything, if that makes any sense. But all in all, she was okay. And only just that.
River was more interesting, obviously. The mystery, the charm and the more darker parts of him. I liked that very much. There aren't many guys in books that are like him. Not in the YA genre at least.
And for the secondary characters? I didn't care much for them. I think Luke and Sunshine were pretty awful for most of the time. They had their good moments. At least Luke had them. But I didn't care about them and wasn't interesting in learning more about either. River's brother, Neeley, I liked more. He was probably my favorite character aside from River. So I hope to read more about him in the second book.
And the plot let me down a little. It wasn't as exciting as I would've liked it to be. Sure, it was pretty intense and maybe a little shocking but I had predicted something like it along the lines.
So Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was an enjoyable book. It was dark, chilling and the writing was really good. The mystery aspect was also nicely done so I would recommend it to people who like gothic books with a paranormal twist.
