“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.”

Okay, so I was sent this book in a giveaway that I won on Twitter back in April. I had heard quite a bit about this book and I was interested in reading this book because the premise sounded so interesting. And OMG was it good.
I had heard some mixed reviews so I wasn’t sure. But there were so many plot twists that had me SHOOK. And the ending. I couldn’t stop talking to my mom about this book (which is how I know a book is good).
I did give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Mostly because it was a little slow at the beginning and there was some insta love. But overall, I completely recommend this book. It’s a great witchy book, and would be absolutely perfect for October!
Until Next Time,
