Dawn 's Review of Salt
For those who loved The Hunger Games and find themselves hungering for more, check out Salt by Maurice Gee - the first in the Salt Trilogy.
Tarl has been captured and enslaved to work in Deep Salt, his son Hari has vowed to save him. As Hari travels to the Deep Salt, he crosses paths with Pearl, a young girl mysteriously fleeing an arranged marriage. She is also very privileged, a class of people Hari despises because of all the wrong they have inflicted upon his people. Pearl is accompanied by her mysteriously gifted maid and the three of them quickly discover that they are meant to be together to discover the secrets of Deep Salt. It turns out not just a quest to save Tarl - their world is on the brink of great danger and terror. This is a great book with a strong plot, interesting characters with depth and it is an epic struggle for power and peace in a dystopian setting.
I am already reading the second in the series Gool which is just as good as the first.
