Description

Some secrets are better left at the bottom of the ocean. Sixteen-year-old Bridey Corkill longs to leave her small island and see the world; the farther from the sea, the better. When Bridey was young, she witnessed something lure her granddad off a cliff and into a watery grave with a smile on his face. Now, in 1913, those haunting memories are dredged to the surface when a young woman is found drowned on the beach. Bridey suspects that whatever compelled her Granddad to leap has made its return to the Isle of Man. Soon, people in Bridey's idyllic village begin vanishing, and she finds an injured boy on the shore--an outsider who can't remember who he is or where he's from. Bridey's family takes him in so he can rest and heal. In exchange for saving his life, he teaches Bridey how to master her fear of the water--stealing her heart in the process. But something sinister is lurking in the deep, and Bridey must gather her courage to figure out who--or what--is plaguing her village, and find a way to stop it before she loses everyone she loves. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.show more

Review quote

NPR Great Read 2016 "Haunting--gripping--beautiful. So powerful!" --Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Beka Cooper trilogy "Fear the Drowning Deep is gorgeous. Lyrical. Atmospheric. Magical. Sarah Glenn Marsh's debut is perfect for anyone who's ever looked out at the sea with awe, and wondered what kind of creatures lurk in the deepest places. Utterly haunting." --Jodi Meadows, author of the Incarnate trilogy, the Orphan Queen duology, and My Lady Jane "Beautifully-written with mysteries and love lurking within the pages as dangerously as an ancient evil waits in the drowning deeps of Sarah's unique setting on the Isle of Man. Don't miss this one!" --Martina Boone, author of Compulsion and the Heirs of Watson Island trilogy "Readers will be swept away by Bridey's love story, every bit as thrilling and mysterious as the Isle of Man's deep, dark sea." --Tricia Rayburn, author of the Siren trilogy "Sarah Glenn Marsh's debut is a captivating tale of love and loss, fear and doubt, monsters of the sea and inside ourselves, and the strength it takes to endure and conquer them all. Hauntingly written with a richly developed setting of the Isle of Man in the early 1900s, you can smell the salt of the sea with every page you hungrily turn." --Lori Goldstein, author of Becoming Jinn and Circle of Jinn "Fans of folklore-influenced YA will find this to be a satisfying use of familiar material." --NPR "[A]tmospheric historical fantasy ... evocative setting, memorable characters, and use of obscure folkloric elements all contribute to the novel's strong sense of place." --Publishers Weekly "[T]his watery take on "Beauty and the Beast" will be catnip to paranormal-romance readers." --Kirkus Reviewsshow more
