HASH(0x8cc5ba20) 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.

HASH(0x8cc5ba74) 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.

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.

HASH(0x8cc5bc48) von 5 Sternen This refreshingly original fantasy is a fresh fusion of contemporary and mythic imaginative vision. 30. Dezember 2013
Von Lucinda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
`Saltwater Witch' is a simply sensational story of self-discovery, mythical creatures combined with magic and breathtaking world building. I was enthralled by how the author's creation came to life on the page, so as to allow me to clearly visualize such a remarkable underwater heaven and fascinating characters. The extensive world building left me aghast, as I explored wide-eyed with deep interest this extraordinarily rich fantasy full of darkly delicious and tantalizing treats! Excited upon encountering Kassandra and eagerly following her personal journey of discovery into the unknown, I instantly connected with her as I truly cared about what would happen in the unfolding events to come. I couldn't tear my eyes away from the pages of this beautiful book as I was completely lost within this mystical, magical world of wonder. this truly is an inspired, scintillating story that is current and refreshingly new for a modern audience.

`We are all seaborn. All life began in the Ocean. The tides. The salt. The rolling waves are in our souls. And the sea will always have the power to call us home...

Chris Howard {also author of Seaborn, Salvage and Dryad} is not only an accomplished writer of fantasy fiction, but is a talented artist and illustrator. He is able to capture his visions through both the written word and through exquisitely evocative masterpieces in watercolour, ink, charcoal, digital and a wide-range of other mixed media. The portfolio of images accompanying `Saltwater Witch' I found so inspiring, mesmerizing and simply gorgeous that add even more depth to the story. *I would recommend taking a peak at the website: [...] Being able to discover even more of this novel through exploring the website, added an additional layer to the entire experience and a heightened sense of realism to such a credible creation.

I am so incredibly impressed by an urban fantasy tale that exceeded all expectations, and the first instalment within a thrilling trilogy {book 2- Seaborn, book 3- sea throne} that is just too good to miss! The army of the drowned dead, doorways in your tears, Sea Demons and crazy river Witches are all elements that sprung from the pages out at me as entirely new concepts and creations so different. There is nothing comparable to this series, with its standards soaring in such a popular and highly competitive genre. The atmospheric ambience, which touched upon all senses so that, I could almost hear the waves crashing against the rocks and smell the saltwater and seaweed, was so acutely accurate as to bring the book to life. The cast of colourful characters such as Ephoros, Jill, Nicole and Kassandra whose destinies await were unforgettable as too was the unique world in which I plunged headfirst into filled with mythological creatures.

I cannot express fully in words how unbelievably engaging and captivating this story is that took hold from page one and never let go. I would like to thank the author for having book 1 of `The Seaborn Trilogy' as a giveaway on Goodreads {first-read}, as I thoroughly enjoyed reading and did not want to end! You will be swept away...

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!
