Praise

“A riveting, seductively menancing tale of love, loss, and betrayal set amid the glamour of the Titanic, filled with séances, sea witches, and second chances.” Library Journal (starred review) 

“Painstakingly researched and meticulously plotted…Though readers will be aware of the inevitable tragedies awaiting, Katsu successfully injects suspense into both time lines, spinning a darkly captivating tale of hauntings, possessions, secrets, and class….Katsu’s artful writing and calculated pacing keep the pages turning. This is an impressive, horror-tinged trip back in time.” Publishers Weekly

“Atmospheric prose and exquisite attention to detail distinguish Katsu’s follow-up to The Hunger….A kaleidoscopic narrative adds color and depth.” Kirkus Reviews

“A slow-burning but satisfying and eerie yarn.” Booklist 

“Alma Katsu returns with another masterly supernatural reimagining of a historical tragedy: the sinking of the Titanic and her sister ship, the Britannic. Eerie, haunting, and filled with suspense, The Deep is a whirlpool of a novel that pulls you in and doesn’t let go.” —Danielle Trussoni, author of the Angelology series and The Ancestor
 
“At once both tragic and chilling, The Deep perfectly blends psychological thriller and eerie gothic ghost story to create something truly haunting, drawing you down into its dark depths before finally letting you up for air. Set in the claustrophobic confines of two doomed ships in their final days, Katsu’s excellently researched new novel establishes her as a unique voice in historical fiction. I can’t wait to see what she does next.” —Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

“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.” —C.J. Tudor, author of The Chalk Man 

“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 thrilling, rich, frightening, unsettling, and, best of all, told from the heart. I’m going to have to read it again, because I’m not sure how she did it….The Deep is divine. I hear bugles blaring; the announcement of the arrival of a brilliant author.” —Josh Malerman, author of Bird Box, Unbury Carol, and Inspection 

The Deep deftly mashes up spellbinding historical fiction, adroit commentary on class and gender, and a classic yet surprising ghost story. Annie’s tale is truly haunting.” —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World

“Blending choice elements of mystery and horror into an impeccably recreated history, Alma Katsu has created a rich, haunting, irresistible novel that succeeds in rewriting the past while making it feel more ominously present than ever.” —Louis Bayard, author of Courting Mr. Lincoln and Roosevelt’s Beast

The Deep takes us back to the final days of the Titanic, her sister ship the Britannic, and the mysterious woman who links them both. In a haunting story of love and revenge, Alma Katsu blends the paranormal and historical fiction as only she can—a spellbinding tale where desire knows no bounds and death is only a beginning. Another fantastic story from the author of The Hunger.” —J.D. Barker, author of The Sixth Wicked Child
 
“Alma Katsu is a fantastic writer, with a unique ability to blur the lines of history, horror, humanity, and tragedy. Think Diana Gabaldon by way of Charlaine Harris. As with her exceptional novel, The Hunger, in The Deep Katsu takes on an infamous tragedy and adds her own haunting twists. A marvelous new addition to Katsu’s already impressive body of work.” —Michael Koryta, author of Those Who Wish Me Dead

“Like The HungerThe Deep is historical reimagining laced with magic and mystery. Alma Katsu adds a sweeping love story and a ghostly tale of revenge to the sinkings of RMS Titanic and HMHS Britannic to tell a tale that is haunting, thrilling, and utterly original.” —Dacre Stroker, co-author of Dracul 

“Elegant and eerie. Alma Katsu really is something rather special.” —John Connolly, author of A Book of Bones
