Gr 9 Up—On a small, isolated island in 1913, readers will find the makings of an exciting tale full of magic. Bridey Corkill lives with her family on Port Coire and has dreams of leaving it all behind. She fears the sea, and nothing can change that, especially when a woman's body washes up on the shore. Then Bridey meets the mysterious Fynn; he can't remember who he is and doesn't know where he is from. The narrative is imaginative, adventurous, and full of mythology. The descriptive language will engage teens and is authentic to the time period. The story is captivating, and the mythological aspects will encourage readers to research unfamiliar terms and animals. Bridey is very relatable; she is courageous but also has fears. Her family and the townspeople add more to the intrigue. This title is perfect for fans of the romance in the "Twilight" series who are looking for a Rick Riordan twist. The elements of this book are much the same as those in other teen romances with magic and mythology, but the creatures, the glashtyn, are new to young adult fiction. VERDICT Recommended for collections in need of a new paranormal romance series.—Maeve Dodds, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC

Fear the Drowning Deep is masterfully conceived, crafted with both heart and skill. The Manx folklore is something unique in the YA genre and the setting (1913 Isle of Man--fresh off the sinking of the Titanic) and all its eccentricities are described in such loving detail that you can taste the salt air and imagine the denizens trotting barefoot through the muddy streets.
Bridey, the heroine, is both Gryffindor and Ravenclaw combined. I love her bravery and resourcefulness, her determination to keep her village safe from the evils lurking beneath the drowning deep despite her absolute terror of the sea. You can’t help rooting for her or swoon over her romance with Fynn, a handsome boy with mysterious ties to the seas and secrets of his own.
So wrap yourself in a flannel throw, brew a cup of tea, and snuggle up to this gem of a book. Allow it to haunt your dreams.
