"Debut author Aaron Galvin gives us robust characters and non-stop action, making this imaginative story of characters from a parallel, underwater world (the Salt) worth a look."
"...I totally bought into the Salted world Galvin created. Not an easy read but a unique one, I would recommend Salted by Aaron Galvin for people who are looking for something beyond the typical mermaid and selkie tales."
"The author manages a wide cast of characters very well, and it is the characters that keep you reading. It's a very unique and imaginative story idea."
"...Salted was an intriguing read that kept me hooked. It is a different spin on the underwater world and creatures which I found it brought quite a bit of originality to the genre."

This book pulls you in with its unique story line which causes the reader to always be guessing what will happen next since these characters are not typical...I love how the author wove all of these unique tidbits into a thrilling tale."
"If you're interested in complex societies hidden from the world, one of the staples of Urban Fantasy, you'll like Salted. The seafaring aspect of the society gives it an interesting spin that I haven't read much of before."
"...the book provides a unique world that has not already been explored/overrun in popular culture. I look forward to seeing how Galvin expands upon this new Salted world and develops his characters through their coming of age."
"From the first page, I was transported into another world. By page 50 I couldn't put the book down. I read it in a day...and did nothing else."
"I'm not sure there is a word perfect enough to describe this story...a phenomenal job of making you fall in love with his characters and really investing yourself in their lives. It's beautifully written and deals with issues current to today's society (bullying being a big theme throughout)."
