Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

"Fifteen hundred souls were lost the night the Titanic sank. But someone just found them. And unless Sam can find out who's behind it, the "unsinkable" ship may be doomed to sink all over again."

Haunting the Deep is the sequel to Adriana Mather's How to Hang a Witch. When I received this book, I wasn't aware that it continues right after How to Hang a Witch. I thought they had been two separate books. Generally, when you dive right into a series in the middle instead of the beginning, you can get a little lost on characters and references. Haunting the Deep, I found, is one of those books, but not to an extent that you won't know anything that is going on. There are times when I found myself feeling like I was a little left out of things. For instance, Sam's step mother Vivian comes up many times, as does her relationship with Elijah. The story didn't necessarily lose me at those parts, but since they are referenced often, it still feels like you are missing something if you haven't read the first book.

I am a lover of all things Titanic, so the premise of the book hooked me in. Sam, a high schooler who can see spirits, has dreams of being on the Titanic. These aren't your ordinary dreams, though, as they are much more real to her, especially when she starts bringing things back to the real world from her dreams. What's worse is that she cannot seem to get away from the Titanic since that's the theme of their school dance.

It's up to the Descendants and her to figure out why the past is coming back to haunt them before it's too late and the past repeats itself.

Aside from jumping in on this without reading the first book, I enjoyed it. I wouldn't say I loved it, but it held my attention rather well and the story is well written. Overall, I would certainly recommend it, but warn that it would be more enjoyable if you read the first in the set before starting this one.
