Blurb from goodreads:

Anyone can be taken - a simple truth for Salt folk, a stark reality for innocent teens Garrett Weaver and Kellen Winstel. Kidnapped by Selkie slave catchers and dragged into the realm beneath the waves, both teens must adapt to their new surroundings if they hope to see the shore again. Yet even if they escape their captors, both will need to embrace their fears. For darker things than Selkies lurk in the Salted depths and not all of them have pure intentions for the innocent ones brought down into their watery world.

Jax's Thoughts:

I love this series. The world is so well developed, and the characters so richly written, it's marvelous. I will say that I think you need to read the first book, Salted, before reading this one. Not that it can't stand alone, but the tale definitely flows better if you're familiar with the history. Speaking of history, in this book you learn more about the mythology and origin of the Selkies' world. It's so much deeper than I expected. I was so happy to be offered the chance to review the second book, since I was captivated by the first. It's an utterly unique setting, with some deviously twisting storylines. Much like Game of Thrones, there are characters that you love to hate who slowly reveal themselves to be admirable. The tale is clearly not over, and I hope we don't have to wait too long to see what trouble and tribulations befall these intrepid  bunch of teens.
