CursedA sense of connection drove me to this story and an intriguing supernatural twist had me hooked I would bribe the author publisher or NetGalley if necessary to get hold of this book before release For the record that’s how NetGalley works – the ARCs not the briberyFor years I worked in an office building just to the left of this photo and looked at this picture as a poster every day never getting tired of it The picture shows the Titanic and one of her sister ships the Olympic docked in Belfast in 1912 The other sister ship was the Britannic which was refitted as a hospital ship during WWI and also suffered a doomed voyage when it hit a German mine in the Mediterranean Sea and sank in 1916 leading to the stories that these liners were cursed Annie Hebbley is the main character in two timelines firstly during her voyage as a maid on the RMS Titanic and secondly as a nurse on HMHS Britannic and a survivor of both While Annie is a fictional character in this novel she is drawn in similar roles as her friend throughout Violet Jessop Violet Jessop was a real person who survived the sinking of both ships and was also on board the Olympic when it encountered a major sinkable incident The biographical story of Violet Jessop is an extremely interesting and fascinating one and it was a very clever call from Alma Katsu to give her a place in this novelAlma Katsu is a wonderfully descriptive writer and weaves the fictional narrative of a story with the factual incidents and people of the time The opulence of the Titanic and its wealthy passengers is really well portrayed along with their fascination with the Occult The uniue perspective Alma brings to this story is the threat of paranormal and demonic forces that are haunting the ships and threatening evil doings Onboard the Britannic doors get locked and items go missing all without a valid explanation The rumours start that the ship is haunted but then again it is war and the ship is filled with very sick often mentally hindered patients What is unsettling for Annie is that she recognises an unconscious soldier as Mark Fletcher from the Titanic voyage but she believed he died when the ship sank Mark was a first class passenger with his wife and child but Annie had an infatuation with him and now he is alone and will finally belong to herWell did I expect too much from this book – Yes I did It didn’t come alive as much as I hoped or spark the pervasive menacing atmosphere that suggestions of curses and hauntings would invoke The anticipated drama of paranormal activity didn’t really materialise and bring terror and fear even with the Irish fascination of spirits and demonsI enjoyed reading the book but just felt it lacked a strong storytelling plot so I’ll rate it 35 stars I would recommend reading this book and it may appeal to readers who haven’t read watched or visited as much about the Titanic story as I have I would like to thank Bantam Press Random House UK and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of the book in return for an honest review

The DeepTanic's sister ship the Britannic now refitted as a hospital ship Plagued by the demons of her doomed first and near fatal journey across the Atlantic Annie comes across an unconscious soldier she recognises while doing her rounds It is the young man Mark And she is convinced that he did not could not have survived the sinking of the Titanic. Pages 432Expected publication March 10th 2020“The troubled mind can never know itself That is the sad truth of madness”Sinister and atmospheric drama infused with real people and facts regarding the voyage of the Titanic and the last Voyage of the Britannic This was similar in ways to the Titanic movie in that it included some of the actual people who were on the Titanic The story includes supporting characters such as John Jacob Astor and his young pregnant wife Madeline Benjamin Guggenheim and a lady friend Lucy Duff Morgan a famous fashion designer and her husband Cosmo as well as two boxers “Dai” Bowen and Leslie Williams Most of these people are than just bit players though the main story revolves around a stewardess on the Titanic who later becomes a Nurse on the Britannic by the name of Annie Hebbley and a young couple Mark and Caroline Fletcher and their Baby Ondine Annie leaves a sanitarium four years after surviving the sinking of the Titanic to board the Britannic as a Nurse at the reuest of her former cabin mate and fellow stewardess Violet The Britannic having been outfitted as a Hospital ship with the ability to carry thousands of men injured in the warThe story is is told in multiple POV by Annie and the others and the reader is shown the events on the Titanic in flashbacks as Annie is working on the hospital ship and especially after she discovers Mark Fletcher as a patient on the Britannic Annie had been taken with Mark and his Baby Ondine from the first time they met on the Titanic and she worried about the baby Odd occurrences plagued the voyage of the Titanic starting with Madeline Astor’s young orphaned cabin boy Teddy The nine year old claims he heard singing from the sea and climbs the ships railing and nearly jumps into the sea only to be pulled back at the last minute by the boxer Dai Some of the passengers decide to hold a séance that evening The séance happens and something eerie occurs which may or may not have been an entity depending on who you ask The séance is broken up by a death on board As the Titanic continues its’ voyage other things seem to happen and it is unclear to the reader if it is something supernatural some sort of cabin fever where a few of the passengers and crew seem like they are either going crazy or they have very overactive imaginationsThough the first half of the book went a bit slow for my liking the second half made up for it The entire book was interesting and informative I always seem to have this issue though with a lot of fantasy novels I don’t like the slow beginning but then after reading the entire book I think back and realize all the reasons for the slow beginning In this case all the background is necessary to understand the story as a whole but also I liked the fact that we didn’t get too many occurrences so that we weren’t really sure what was going on Is there something supernatural happening or is it just in Annie’s mind Even she is unsure most of the time ”I know firsthand how easy it is for this kind of thing to happen in a confined space with few distractions Someone gives voice to a concern and before long it’s on everyone’s lips Paranoia is itself a kind of contagion” The most interesting thing is the relationship between Annie and Mark It is obvious she is interested in him However he is married and seems to be in love with his wife while they are on the Titanic Throughout the book we learn about Annie and her background as well as the Fletchers and how they came to be on the TitanicI don’t like to give away any spoilers aside from background information that occurs in the first part of the books I read So I will just say that most of the book was unpredictable and I was constantly surprised by what was happening and especially the way it ended I did end up really enjoying the book overall I would give this a rating of 45 due to originality historical information great characters and wonderful world building I voluntarily read reviewed an advanced copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own Blog|Goodreads|Facebook|Instagram|Twitter|BookBub
