Kurzbeschreibung

3. März 2011
"An amazing fantasy... readers will excitedly follow Kassandra’s every step as she discovers who she really is." --Flamingnet Review "Four stars. I could almost feel the raging sea..." --Curled up with a good book Kassandra comes from the sea, but she has no memory of saltwater, seagulls, or an incoming tide. She's never seen an ocean, never heard the thunder of surf. She's an exile, betrayed by her own family, sent as far from the sea as they could arrange--somewhere in the middle of Nebraska. Everything changes the day she drowns in Red Bear Lake, and discovers she can't really drown. Not in the way everyone else can. Then a two-thousand year old king wakes inside her head and turns out to be a prodigy with mathematics. Kassandra cries for the first time in her life, and learns that her tears are doorways for calling things from the sea. With clues from summoned sea-demons and the voices in her head, Kassandra sets out to find out what the hell is going on...and discovers she's a prisoner, trapped between a murderous grandfather who controls an army of the drowned dead, river witches who spy on her through the plumbing, and Ms. Matrothy, the Girl's Department Director, who's been trying to kill her since she was four.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read for a great price. 12. April 2011
Von Weston A. Kincade - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had never heard of Chris Howard, but came across the book on Smashwords and was intrigued by the back flap summary. I just finished it and was happily pulled into the maelstrom of Kassandra's world. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Although the initial copy needs a basic edit, it is quite good and there were few enough grammatical issues that it didn't disturb the read or flow. The characters, Ephoros, Jill, and Nicole surprised me as they found their place in a new world, supporting Kassandra in her direst of straights. I was impressed and surprised as the young girls found their destiny and family. I don't want to give to much away, so just pick up a copy for yourself.

This was my first time reading a book by this author and was not disapointed in the least. What seems like it could almost be a typical theme of abandoned teen turned otherworldy princess is instead a wonderfully creative story. Slightly typical to begin with the story quikly veers when the main character finds she can breathe underwater and encounters a water witch. Throw in a monster that can be summoned from a tear drop, a war against an underwater zombie army and trying to save a school and you have a great, fast-paced, read that is hard to put down.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good start, original idea, not as good as it should have been. 1. Juni 2011
Von Tracy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read a fair amount of this kind of stuff (teen sci fi/fantasy). This had an interesting premise, and I enjoyed the beginning. The tone of the writing is accessible, although occasionally inconsistent (innocent, innocent, then lots of real swear words...weird). The basic storyline was solid if formulaic (regular girl finds out she has mysterious past and amazing powers); the twist on her being a water witch was a good one, both trendy and new.

Alas, I thought the author got bogged down in detail about all the different people in the mythical history. Fantasy writers never get that what makes this sort of book great is our ability to relate to the character, and too much of that stuff that no longer relates to earth in some way gets boring and distances us. So after about a million references to thassolegenes and seaborn and kallixene and house of gregor and ampharete and praxinos and ocheros (you get the idea), I sort of gave up paying attention and started skimming.

I also thought the main character adjusted to her new situation way too easily, missing a nice opportunity for some character development and struggle.

Speaking of character development, I failed to understand the point of the teacher who she is trying to save, which relates to a couple of what were purposeful ommissions: the lack of any real point for the protagonist (was this a journey of self empowerment? not really), and a lack of a love interest. Making the teacher a young student teacher or whatever that the protagonist liked might have made this subplot more worthwhile. Some of the other characters were either way over the top (the evil school director) or not quite fleshed out enough (her two best friends). There were just a lot of people in the story, a few could have been edited out.

It's not a bad read if you like this sort of thing. I did finish it which is more than I can say for a lot of books I start. I just thought it could have been better.

I didn't expect I would like "Saltwater Witch" as much as I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it to have an interesting twist on fairytale foundlings.

I hate reading plot spoilers so I'll end with the fact that I'll be buying everything else I can from Mr. Howard!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fun and full of surprises 12. November 2013
Von Trudy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
First Posted on Goodeads.

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads. I really enjoyed it but there were a lot of editing errors that caused me to have to re-read a few times to try to figure out what was meant. Had it not been for that I would have given this book a 4. Chris Howard took me on an adventure to a whole new underwater world unlike any I had explored before. The story line was unique, fun and full of surprises. I am excited to be able to share this book with my daughter and look forward to getting my hands on the next two books in the series & exploring his website.
