#BookReview: Tempest Cursed (A Wuthering Heights Retelling) by K.C. Lannon






Synopsis: On the island of Moon Tithe, where sea gods called Deep Dwellers once ruled, there was a girl who became a ghost story and a boy who became a monster.

Spirited, lonely 10-year-old Pearl searches for Magic and answers after her mother’s presumed drowning. When she presents an offering to the old gods, expecting to meet the Deep Dwellers, she finds a strange boy named Hake instead. Half-human, half-Deep Dweller, and raised cruelly by a monster called the Old One, eleven-year-old Hake befriends Pearl and they make a deal: he will show her Magic in exchange for a home. But Hake knows nothing of Magic—only that Pearl’s romantic stories of the Deep Dwellers are a lie.

As Hake and Pearl grow into young adults together, both the mysteries they seek to unravel and their romantic feelings for each other become hopelessly entangled. However, Pearl’s father threatens to separate them if they dig too deeply into Tempest’s secrets—a hidden passage, a Deep Dweller cult, and rumors of human sacrifices. But when the wealthy and kind Lotham family arrives on Moon Tithe, offering Pearl an escape from the secrets that haunt her, her loyalty to Hake is challenged, especially when his monstrous nature is revealed.

Tempest Cursed is a loose retelling of Wuthering Heights in two parts. This novel is the first in a series of Gothic retellings.

Rating: ⭐⭐
My Review: This one is a take it or leave it for me.  I wanted to really enjoy it but the pacing and plot just didn't work out fully.  There were a lot of repetitions thought the story and it really slowed it down.  I liked the characters and the story overall but the writing just didn't work for me.
