Maurice Gee is a well-known teenage fiction writer from New Zealand. One of his most recent novels is 'Salt'. 'Salt' is the first book in a trilogy, and is the winner of the NZ Post Book Award for young adult fiction.

A fantasy adventure that hooks you from page one, 'Salt' tells of a world where the 'Company' are brutal rulers.

People are forced to live underground in burrows, and it is from here the elderly Tarl is kidnapped by company officials to work in Deep Salt. No one returns from Deep Salt and he is not expected to be seen again.

However, his tough and fearless son, Hari, has other ideas.

Hari has an unusual gift that enables him to communicate with other creatures. This can be of assistance, or can equally lead him into more danger.

After Hari's initial unsuccessful efforts to free his father, he escapes in to the wilderness and meets two females who are also fleeing.

All three are suspicious of one another but they are more afraid of the 'Company' who are following them.

If you enjoy 'Salt' stay tuned for the next book in the series, 'Gool'.
