A Celebration of SALT

Salt by Danielle EllisonNever leave home without salt!

Tomorrow Danielle Ellison releases her debut young adult novel SALT into the world, and we at The BookYArd are here to celebrate it!

First things first, here’s what SALT is about and where you can get some SALT for yourself.

About SALT:

Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents – and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away from her kind.

When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find “her” demon. To take back what was stolen.

Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret, but he also has one of his own.

Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda… and they’re far too interested in her.

“Heart-stopping action and swoon-worthy romance makes SALT a paranormal romance that stands out!” – # 1 NYTimes bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout


Next, we thought it’d be fun to share some of what we’re personally looking forward to with the release of SALT tomorrow.

“Secret societies, lost magic, and elite-demon hunting force? This book sounds like a thrill-ride waiting to be read!” ~ Christina Farley, author of Gilded

“I’m excited about learning how Penelope’s dealing with losing something that’s a part of her to the extent that magic is. Not only has she lost her parents, but she’s also fundamentally lost who she is and has to pretend that she hasn’t. I’m curious to see the strength she uses to deal with that!” ~ Skylar Dorset, author of The Girl Who Never Was

“The season of the witch is here, and SALT’s Penelope is the heroine you’ve been waiting for! Magic, mayhem, mystery – what more would you need?” ~ Rin Chupeco, author of The Girl from the Well

“I’m really interested in Danielle’s ideas of borrowed magic and witches as protectors. I can’t wait to read more!” ~ Mary Crockett, coauthor of Dream Boy

“A witch without her magic, a missing demon and a mysterious boy? What’s not to be excited about?! This is definitely going to be awesome.”

~ AdriAnne Strickland, author of Wordless

“SALT had me at the word ‘witch.’ Add in a dash of secret societies and a sprinkle of demons, and you’ll be sure to fall under SALT’s spell!”
~ Sarah Bromley, author of A Murder of MagpiesWhat You Never Knew About SALT:
“I started writing this book as a sort of palette cleanser between edits and then it quickly swept me away and made me fall in love with the characters. It’s such a fun story for me and I’m excited to share it!” -Danielle Ellison, author
