Publisher's Summary

A remote island. A group of prisoners. And an evil as old as time. 

Robin didn’t mean to break the law. Didn’t know at first what law she’d broken. And now she’s on her way to Salt Rock - a new-model prison for a new kind of criminal, way out in the remote Northern Isles of Scotland. 

On Salt Rock, she'll meet other prisoners like her - men and women from all over the world, spirited away from the lives they knew for crimes they didn’t know they were committing. 

She'll uncover the complex web of conspiracy that connects them all, confronting some of the darkness of her own past in the process. 

And she'll come face to face, finally, with an evil as old as the land itself. 

It’s hell in those waters.

Different...

I listened through to the end even though I'm not much into spiritual fantasy. So, it was good enough to make me want to see the conclusion. I would think that if you enjoy fantasy, you are most likely to enjoy this book. Nothing really wrong with it, just not something I normally would purchase. Narration was good

Not quite horror, but… It all comes together in the end…

Saltblood follows the story of a couple of “guests” (prisoners) that get shipped off to an island enclosed by a metal cage. They are told that “islanders” live on there, too, but not to interact with them at all.
Later it turns out that there is so much more to the local people and beings than the “guests” are told…
It’s not quite horror, as it is a mixture of thriller, suspense, fantasy with a hint of romance. The supernatural creature that terrorizes the inhabitants of the island seems to be quite scary, but I didn’t quite feel the horror.

Additionally, at times the story and backstories felt a bit confusing and out of place. However, it does come together towards the end - turns out, it is all connected.
Ancient legends meet modern high tech.

Gina Marie Davies did an excellent job narrating. She captured the story and the characters & their interactions and motions really well, which made it a lot easier to follow the happenings.

I think, if you go in with an open mind and with no particular set expectations, and instead just letting yourself be guided through the story, just going with it, you’ll have a very enjoyable time altogether.
