I’ve been doing a LOT of reading lately, thanks in large part to the awesome folks over at Writers, After Dark. I’ve recently finished reading and reviewing Blood and Salt, a young adult novel in my favorite genre: supernatural horror. Now, for someone who started reading Stephen King in junior high, this book isn’t what I’d call scary. But it was certainly a fun read.
Here’s a tiny snippet from my review over at Writers, After Dark!
Ash Larkin is haunted by the image of a dead girl who looks very much like her. She and her twin brother Rhys are children of a single mother who escaped a very possibly made up cult. At least that’s what the kids think. The Quivira, an invisible tribe of people living in a corn field in middle of nowhere Kansas, always seemed like something one would want to escape. But when Ash and Rhys’ mom vanishes from their New York home, they realize the only way to get her back is to travel to Kansas and find the Quivira on their own.
The Larkin kids discover that not only are the Quivira are real, they are also magic users, stuck in an existence that never got past the late 1800’s. The Quivira are lost in time, held captive by an immortal looking to resurrect her one true love. Or are they?
