Saltwater Vampires has a smart and well thought out plot where the suspense will get your pulse pounding. I have read a few other paranormal stories by Australian authors but they have never felt truly Australian but Saltwater Vampires definitely does. The dialogue, the setting, the characters, it all feels like home.
Again Kirsty Eagar has written another story that is fiercely entertaining with a lot of heart. The pace is mostly relaxed and therefore took me a little while to warm up to it. However the prose is so unbelievably gorgeous.
Not only is the writing incredible but so are the multi-layered characters. They feel real, honest and down to earth. I think it is impossible not to like this distinctive bunch.
Another great thing about this story is that it would appeal to both male and female readers of all ages.
Overall Saltwater Vampires is a fantastic read that is more than just your average vampire tale.
Overall Rating: 4/5
