This series is a little hard to get into for me. The second installment follows Pearl & Hari's children as they go off to find and destroy a gool. If they don't suceed, Hari will die. The journey takes them through the jungle in search of Tarl who has now become the dog king and then back to Blood Burrow. In Blood Burrow, they must search out and destroy the gool to save not only Hari, but everything else that's good in the world.

The series is dark and twisted with interesting characters, but the story seems to repeat itself from book to book with different characters as the center. Both Salt and Gool seemed to follow the same outline in storytelling, so they're a little predictable. I'll read the third but not sure I'd repeat this series.
