Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.
she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force,
Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she
can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she
needs to find "her" demon. To take back what was stolen.
Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.
Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because
Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the
demons have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.
My Thoughts on the Book
This is the debut novel for
Danielle Ellison and it was excellently done. This YA paranormal
creates a world that is explained in the way that makes it interesting
and does bore the reader; you are introduced to the world in very
enjoyable way. The characters are well developed but we are still left
with some mystery about that and I always love that. Penelope is a
strong character and when she meets Carter she is even stronger. I love a
great hero but when the heroine is just as strong it makes the story so
much better. Salt has elements of other stories I love, still
perfectly original but if you enjoy paranormal romance books this is one
that you should read.
