Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's war time, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village where they've recently bought a home. But from the minute they cross the threshold, strange things begin to happen. In that mysterious house still lurks the spirit of Jacob, the previous owners' son, who died by drowning.

With the help of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to explore the strange circumstances of that death and discover the existence of a mysterious being called the Prince of Mist--a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in an adventure of sunken ships and an enchanted stone garden--an adventure that will change their lives forever.

Review:

"When 13-year-old Max Carver and his family move into a long-unoccupied--and possibly haunted--house on the Spanish coast during WWII, they learn of the evil magician known as the Prince of Mist, who went down in the ship that can be seen below the coastal cliffs. Jonathan Davis is excellently cast; his voice throbs with understated menace, which slowly intensifies toward the dramatic conclusion. Sound effects subtly add to the suspense and pleasure of listening. The audio performance is also accompanied by haunting original music written and performed by the author. A Little, Brown hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 12). (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

From the author of the adult bestsellers "Shadow of the Wind" and "The Angel's Game" comes an atmospheric, adventurous YA ghost story about a mysterious house that harbors an unimaginable secret.
