Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.
When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find "her" demon. To take back what was stolen.
Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.
Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.

THINGS I LIKED
"Do you have a nice little house in hell? Drapes? Servants? A cute little demon dog? All the Jazz?" (ARC loc 32)There was also some pretty cool magic involved. I really liked system (the Enforcers and the tests) that was set up as well as many of of the concepts (like the way Penelope was able to use magic).
Lastly, Penelope and Carter: they were an awesome couple. They definitely kept things interesting, and I think many readers would enjoy their romance.
THINGS I DIDN'T LIKE
There's really not much I didn't like—at least, not anything really noticeable. The only negative thing I can say it was a bit slow for me. It didn't engross me and it took me quite awhile to read.
Salt was a highly enjoyable read and I had a lot of fun with it! I suggest giving this one a go if you're looking for a good, fun read.
My questions for you:
What makes a book quotable to you?
What is one of the most fun books you've ever read?
Is it just me, or is purple not a very common color for book covers?
