Waiting on Wednesday #74: Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper.

Expected Publication: September 23, 2014.
by: Little, Brown BYR.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Sixteen-year-old Avery Roe wants only to take her rightful place as the witch of Prince Island, making the charms that keep the island’s whale men safe and prosperous at sea. But before she could learn how to control her power, her mother, the first Roe woman in centuries to turn her back on magic, stole Avery away from her grandmother. Avery must escape from her mother before her grandmother dies, taking with her the secrets of the Roes’ power.
When Avery awakens from a dream foretelling her own murder, she realizes time is running short—for her and for the people of her island, who, without the Roes, will lose their ships and the only life they know.
With the help of Tane, a tattooed harpoon boy from the Pacific Islands, Avery plots her escape from her mother and unravels the mysteries of her mother’s and grandmother’s pasts. Becoming a witch may prevent her murder and save her island from ruin, but Avery discovers it will also require a sacrifice she never expected—one she might not be able to make.

Why I'm excited:
I'm not always one for witches but I'm just so darn intrigued by this... historical fantasy? Maybe? I really want to get to know this island and all the charms and whatnot and I am so curious about the mystery. Curiosity is my weakness, it seems, and this one definitely has my attention!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. This does look good. I really like the summary. Salt and Storm really does have a good plot to it. Plus there seems to be an interesting family dynamic.
