The gift of magic may be a curse.
After her desert-transforming wish, Emel follows Saalim to Madinat Almulihi to reclaim all she has lost. But the seaside city is not what she expected. When she is tasked with assisting the palace healer, she is faced daily with the reminder that Saalim—focused only on seeking the revenge of those who killed his family—does not remember her at all.
Cursing the magic that destroyed her love and brought her to an unwelcoming city, Emel regrets her decision to leave her settlement. That is, until she meets Kas. Though inscrutable, he is the first person to help her forget her past, and the pull of finding happiness with him tempts her from the life she wished for with Saalim.
But darkness waits in the desert, and not all people in Madinat Almulihi are what they seem. When Emel understands she is entangled in the fate of the city—and of Saalim—she is faced with the realization that magic may be the most powerful card in her hand. It might be the only way to save all that she loves, but if she plays her hand wrong, it could destroy everything.
Son of the Salt Chaser is the second book in the Salt Chasers duology by author AS Thornton. November seems to be the month of binge reading duologies and I have to say I am completely loving it! The Salt Chaser duology was a fantastic read from start to finish. I read the books back to back and I think I enjoyed the second book even more than the first book. This is a series that needs to be read in order, but The Salt Chaser series is a great binge read. It was a tad predictable in parts, but I fell in love with the characters so I was completely fine with the predictable bits.
Son of the Salt Chaser is told from both Emel and Saalim’s point of views. We really get to know the two of them better and we get to see them stand on their own and really come into their own as they try to find their way back to one another in this book. As a quick refresher, Emel is the daughter of the Salt King and she has been trying to free herself from his control. She thinks she has finally managed to do that when life throws another big curveball at her. No spoilers here, but her journey was super satisfying. Everything wrapped up really nicely by the end of this book.
If you are a fan of romantic adventure stories, and the tales of Arabian nights, then the Salt Chasers Duology is one you need to check out. I don’t hear enough people talking about these books, and I really enjoyed them. They are so worth the read and with the second book’s release, now is the perfect time to binge read this great fantasy duology!
