Wishful Wednesday featuring Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every week, I'll pick an upcoming book that I'm anticipating the release for and showcase it here on the blog. This week, that book is going to be Salt & Storm by the talented Kendall Kulper. This is her debut novel and already I'm drawn in by the intensely intriguing synopsis. I mean, this looks like it's going to be absolutely fabulous. I'm lucky enough to have an eGalley of this for review that I have already read and reviewed on Goodreads and already I was asolutely sucked into the world that Kendall Kulper has created. 

Guys, dark fantasy, magic, elements, romance...and dangerous twists and turns at every available opportunity. How could you want to miss out on a book this amazing! This one is definitely on my auto-buy list. I'm discovering that I love fantasy and dark fantasy more and more than I usually do.

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.
