Secrets of the sea have never been sexier than this.
Ever since the death of her parents, Miranda has lived on Whym Island, taking comfort in the local folklore, which claims a mysterious sea witch controls the fate of all on the island and in its surrounding waters. Sometimes it’s just easier to believe things are out of your control.
But then a terrible boating accident takes the lives of several of her friends, and Miranda is rescued by a mysterious boy who haunts her dreams. Consumed by guilt from the accident, she finds refuge in late-night swims—and meets Christian, a boy who seems eerily familiar, but who is full of mystery: He won’t tell her where he is from, or why they can only meet at the beach. But Miranda falls for him anyway…and discovers that Christian’s secrets, though meant to protect her, may bring her nothing but harm.
Seductive and compelling, Wrecked brings a contemporary, paranormal twist to a classic enchanting tale.
Wrecked – that is what this book felt like to me, a wreck. Putting it lightly, I am definitely mincing words here when I say I couldn’t find a thing about this book that I enjoyed.
I’ll keep my musings short. BEWARE SPOILERS!
Right from the beginning I found Wrecked to have a somber tone and then a few more pages more and it was just downright depressing. There is so much talk of death or suicide, then there is a bunch of death, and then a bunch of pretty much everyone blaming the afore mentioned deaths on the main character, Miranda. Made it hard to stomach and left me with no desire to carry on by the time I reached 100 pages. Then we throw in this connection between the ‘Betwixt man” Christian and Miranda – and I just didn’t see anything special there to really intrigue and draw me in.
I could say more but I’m not going to turn this into a bash fest just because it wasn’t my cup of tea. So for those of you still curious, here is a review of someone who enjoyed it – maybe I’m just the oddball statistic.
