An army of the drowned dead, family betrayal, an exiled witch who doesn't know she has power--or that enemies are lurking all around her, spying on her. Follow Kassandra as she discovers who and what she is in this moving underwater fantasy. Kassandra comes from the sea, but she has no memory of saltwater, seagulls, or an incoming tide.

Follow Kassandra as she discovers who and what she is in this moving underwater fantasy. Kassandra comes from the sea, but she has no memory of saltwater, seagulls, or an incoming tide. She's never seen an ocean, never heard the thunder of surf. She's an exile, betrayed by her own family, sent as far from the sea as they could arrange--somewhere in the middle of Nebraska. Everything changes the day she drowns in Red Bear Lake, and discovers she can't really drown. Not in the way everyone else can. Then a two-thousand year old king wakes inside her head and turns out to be a prodigy with mathematics. Kassandra cries for the first time in her life, and learns that her tears are doorways for calling things from the sea. With clues from summoned sea-demons and the voices in her head, Kassandra sets out to find out what the hell is going on...and discovers she's a prisoner, trapped between a murderous grandfather who controls an army of the drowned dead, river witches who spy on her through the plumbing, and Ms. Matrothy, the Girl's Department Director, who's been trying to kill her since she was four.

    Chris Howard wrote and illustrated this graphic novel version of his Saltwater Witch of YA paranormal speculative fiction. This short work, first published in 2011, features mesmerizing graphic art and a cool idea. Kassandra was born near the sea but was then transplanted to Nebraska, as far from saltwater as she can be. A harsh home life leads to a discovery of freshwater witches, creepy underwater women who grab her legs and try to pull her down. This is a teaser for her watery powers to come.

This was the first chapter and a good introduction to what looks like an enticing paranormal series.

    I'm not going to lie, I thought the artwork was fantastic and I thought this was a very good opening to a series. However, there was nothing really about the ploy that stood out for me. It's an interesting concept, it just doesn't particularly excite me that much. But that's just my opinion, and it is a good graphic novel in total.

    The Saltwater Witch had an interesting story. As far as the graphics, they were fun to read but sometimes I was confused as to the order to read the pictures. This may cause confusion for a younger person who may be interested in the book.

    2.5 stars The artwork was great and the story hooked me enough to keep reading, but nothing more than that. There was definitely something missing here.

    Cool It was interesting. I was sad it was over and had to move onto the next. Pretty good comic though.

    Pretty good looking art The animals and such from the beginning are gorgeous. The people are animated a bit strange though. An Intriguing premise.

    The Illustrations in this are BEAUTIFUL and the premis of the story is good but it didn't grab me and doesn't make me want to read any more. It was my first graphic novel so perhaps they are not for me in general but I will try others.

    I like the introduction we get here- the main character is interesting and her story seems to have some mythological elements that I hope will be built up more in further installments.

    Interesting The illustrations were nice. The story seemed a bit choppy and a bit out of order. Plus it was too short.

    La historia me parece algo repetida, cliché, pero tiene algo que atrapa desde el primer momento, que te engancha de inmediato y hace que no dejes de leer hasta el final. Hay algunas cosas que no terminan de cuadrarme, que no tienen casi sentido, pero supongo que irán teniéndolo mientras avance la historia. Los dibujos no son mi estilo, pero son hermosos, el color, el diseño, todo está muy bien plasmado, y la trama promete BASTANTE.

The drawings are not my style, but are beautiful, color, design, everything's very well captured, and the plot promises SO MUCH.

    En mi intento por mejorar un poco (más bien bastante) mi inglés, es que continuo leyendo varios libros en ese idioma, esta vez es el turno de una novela gráfica Saltwater witch o como sería en español algo así como la bruja de agua salada. El libro cuenta la historia de Kassandra una joven adolescente que comienza relatando su vida por medio de un diario, ella no recuerda nada de su pasada excepto el frío.

    This graphic novel is about a girl. She is constantly under attack by others who are tying to kill her and make her suffer. She has a tragic past and strange powers. I loved the art, it was beautiful and reminded me of the ocean. The premise of the story is very interesting and I would like to read the actual series. It's definitely an interesting concept and is carried out well. This graphic novel is about a girl. She is constantly under attack by others who are tying to kill her and make her suffer.

    The artwork is absolutely beautiful, but the story didn't reveal much. The first comic was mostly just pretty seascapes with a few words per page. The following comics may be different, but this one left much to be desired. The artwork is absolutely beautiful, but the story didn't reveal much.

    :/ The art fluctuates between good and ehhh. The story seems like it could be interesting, but the comic panels seem to occasionally be out of order/hard to follow. Over all, I don't think this comic is for me. :/ The art fluctuates between good and ehhh.

    I loved the artwork in this graphic novel. It definitely has it's own style going on. The idea of this story is a pretty neat one, however, the dialogue was boring and so were the characters. I didn't really find myself relating to the main character, or her tormentors. I loved the artwork in this graphic novel. It definitely has it's own style going on.

    Promising I found the water color graphics original and well done. The plot seems promising but keeps me thinking I have read it somewhere else before. It is a great start and I hope to read the rest in the series.

    it was a fast read, but i really don't think i'll pick the others up, to be honest i only picked it up for my cramathon challenge which is read a graphic novel. I really enjoyed the art but that was it, the story wasn't so interesting.... reason why i'm not picking up the others. it was a fast read, but i really don't think i'll pick the others up, to be honest i only picked it up for my cramathon challenge which is read a graphic novel.

    Saltwater Witch is a short comic book. It is really well drawn. The pictures were great! I like the main character and will continue the series.

    Art was a bit sloppy but over all I gave it four out of five because of the amazing story plot!

    Short but good Great way to start, back story! And not all of it, enough to pull you in and leave you wanting more.

    It's nice. It's beautifully illustrated and it provides a short introduction to the story. I think I'll pick up the first book in the trilogy next. It's nice.

    Not bad. Took a while to get to a point, but very well drawn. I'd read more of the series, if the pace picks up. Not bad. Took a while to get to a point, but very well drawn. I'd read more of the series, if the pace picks up.

    Short read. Good graphics and great but story seemed inadequate. Something is missing and while I accept that it is a trilogy, this first book seemed unfinished. The story stopped abruptly.
