About the Author

Erin A. Craig has always loved telling stories. After getting her BFA in Theatre Design and Production from the University of Michigan, she stage managed tragic operas filled with hunchbacks, séances, and murderous clowns, then decided she wanted to write books that were just as spooky. An avid reader, decent quilter, rabid basketball fan, and collector of typewriters, Erin makes her home in Memphis with her husband and daughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 November 2019
'House Of Salt And Sorrows' by Erin A. Craig is an eerie tale set by the sea. With four sisters dead, the villagers are convinced that Annaleigh and her sisters have been cursed by the Gods.

Ghostly visions plague Annaleigh, but she is soon distracted by glistening balls, the arrival of her new half-brothers and a mysterious stranger who has his own secrets.

Okay, so this might not be a popular opinion, but House Of Salt And Sorrows just didn’t do it for me. I found myself skimming quite a bit and didn’t connect with Annaleigh, the protagonist. This is a retelling of the Brothers Grimm story 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses'. I usually am not a fan of retellings as it usually falls short of the original story. However, there was enough variation in this version to make it hold my interest long enough to finish it.

It seemed that the only aspects of the religion that was explored had a direct influence on the storyline – I just didn't feel involved in this universe and feel like a bit more information on how the Gods and Goddesses influence the day-to-day lives would have made me more invested.

Not so convinced about the romance element to this novel either. I think it could have been better explored and didn’t find myself rooting for the romance as I usually do.

What I DID like about this book is that there were a few twists that I really didn’t see coming. The last 25% really pulled it together!

It's a 3/5 for me!
