[ARC] Water Memory by Mathieu Reynès

The story begins with a relocation: Marion’s mother inherited the family home in a fishermen’s village, and decides to move there with her daughter.

Marion is a clever and curios girl, after exploring the village and the coast near home, she discovers strange incisions on the rocks. There is also the strange and grouch old fisherman living in the lighthouse on a small island reachable by foot only during low tide.

After some time, Marion find hints of old legends and connections with her family living in the village. The legend seems to get more and more real, and to menace the serenity of the village.

Water Memory is a nice book, but not an exceptional one, with foreseeable developments and unlikely behaviours in real life (Marion is free to explore – and to risk her life – in more than one occasion). The graphical part is well-developed, and helps in providing rhythm to the narration.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
