Book review: The Water Witch by Jessica Throne

I love how Jessica Thorne weaves the supernatural and folkloric elements into a contemporary love story. I also like how a lot of the folklore in this story is based on actual folk tales.
Ari Walker is roped in, by her brother, to carry on the search for the City of Ys. A search that probably led to her late fiance’s death.
Raphael Du Lac is haunted by his family curse – which means that all men in his family die at the age of 35. And Raphael has a month left.

This book starts quietly and builds to a crescendo. It’s full of spookiness and adventure. The characters are well rounded and the descriptions of the settings are so vivid, I could taste the salt.
I loved it.

I received an ARC from Netgalley. This is my honest review.
