Even though their parents disappeared during a hunt three months ago, seventeen-year-old Indi and his siblings, Beleza, Oscar, and Zulu, continue to roam the Mediterranean on their sailboat and hunt down monsters--but Indi yearns for a more settled life for his family, and he hopes that his parents' journal with its tantalizing hints of a treasure, will provide them all with the means of escape from their nomadic and dangerous life before it is too late.
Salt is one of those books that you either love or hate or you’re confused about what you feel so you’re undecided. That’s where I am. I’m undecided on how I feel.
On the one hand, I loved it but I also didn’t like it at certain parts. I loved the meaning of family. It was strange at parts but you could still feel the love they had for each other. I love the fighting. I love how I was taken immediately into the book. I loved the characters. They were driven and sometimes it could be a lot.
I hated the ending. It was very anticlimactic and that really sucked. Some of the dynamics between the siblings were weird but then again if you’re a family fighting monsters at sea nothing is what it seems. I didn’t like how I was taken out of the story at times because it was more about the characters than the actual story. If that makes sense. I don’t know how to describe it.
Overall Salt is a high action, fantasy novel that will quickly immerse you but will also leave you frustrated at times.
