House of Salt and Sorrows

We rated this book:


The Thaumas sisters have only known a life of mourning. Annaleigh was once one of twelve, but the so-called Thaumas curse has taken its claim upon four of her sisters. When the girls discover a magic door, they are instantly transported into a Kingdom that fulfills their hearts’ greatest desires, where they spend their nights secretly dancing the night away in their delicate fairy shoes. But soon Annaleigh realizes that there is more to the fancy balls than meets the eye, and her sister’s deaths could be more than just accidents. Now, Annaleigh must discover if she has genuinely descended into madness, or has been blinded by a dance of trickery.

With magic as tangible as the salty sea air, readers will not be able to resist this bewitching tale. House of Salt and Sorrows is this summer’s breakaway read. Fanciful, intense and even dark at times, this retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Brothers Grimm is a thriller, a horror, and a fantasy all combined into one brilliant story. Erin A. Craig’s rich imaginary pours over the pages, with beautiful lyrical writing that is sure winds around its readers like an octopus’ tentacles, waiting to pull them under at just the right moment.
