"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."

"Here's 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. Yet,

The Deep is divine. I hear bugles blaring; the announcement of the arrival of a brilliant author."
