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.

Angie’s Thoughts:

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.

The Verdict:
