Salt (Salt #1)
By Danielle Ellison
'I believe the demon is out there, and it will make itself known sometime. I just have to wait for it all to come together.
I also believe Zac Efron will come to town and fall madly in love with me, so maybe I'm just too hopeful.'
Filled with kick-ass action, timeless humour and a feisty female with a mission, Salt is as addictive as it is magical.
My thoughts on the book:
There is nothing not to like about this book.
The story twists and turns, keeping readers' minds occupied with a intriguing set of interlocking mysteries that combine to create a stunning plot. Not to mention its cast of funny and heartwarming characters, from the wickedly cute Carter, to the loveable and fashion savvy Connie.
Salt also manages to bring about a new spin on paranormal fiction...with the witches doing the demon hunting!
A fan of Cassie Clare's Mortal Instruments series, as well as several other authors whose works have incorporated demon mythology, I wondered how Danielle Ellison would bring to life a concept that has been so frequently used in YA fiction.
But I needn't have worried. She did just fine - more so, in fact!
Salt revealed a whole new way of viewing such paranormal concepts, whilst managing to keep the youthfulness of the story intact.
I highlighted over thirty quotes in my ebook copy, another tribute to how relatable and entertaining this book was. Lines like:
"Two witches walk into a demon bar, and somehow they both come out alive,"
"Men don't have wiles, Pen. We have charisma."
Not to mention Carter. Did I mention Carter?! A new YA Crush has emerged, ladies!
