Salted by Aaron Galvin
Teaser from ARC (quotes could change):
She did not kneel gracefully, but neither did she fall. She ran her hand over his brow, leaned her ear to his chest. She came away nodding. Arching his head back, she placed one hand over the other and pumped life back into him. After a few thrusts, she coaxed the death sentence from his lungs.
Life isn’t better under the sea.
Lenny Dolan is all too familiar with this reality. A Selkie slave in the realm beneath the waves, he has no choice when charged with leading a crew ashore to capture an elusive runaway. If unsuccessful, the loved ones kept behind will pay for his failure with their lives.
But when their target leads Lenny and his crew to deeper, darker secrets, the Selkies are faced with a moral dilemma. Secure their own freedom at the expense of others, or return empty-handed to face the grisly consequences?
How Lenny and his crew answer the question will teach them the harshest truth of all. Only through the loss of innocence does one become Salted.
