I thoroughly enjoyed this novel by this exciting new writer! The story was very engaging and the characters were wonderfully human. Mr. Arab's style is fresh and exhilarating and I'm looking forward to reading more of his work in the future. I would suggest grabbing this novel now so that you can say you were a fan of his from the start!

Review by: David Cook on Aug. 31, 2011 :
This is a beautiful novel I enjoyed from start to finish. Anyone who is a fan of the sea and marine-life will also love it. The writing is fresh, bold, and the plot is unique. I was amazed at the energy this book carries, and the fight of Zaid and Alex, who will stop at nothing to save Salt. The passages of research are deeply moving too – I’ll never look at leatherbacks in the same way. Love it! A must read!
