Synopses & Reviews
The truth will not stay buried.
During World War II, Germany’s Hürtgen Forest was a killing field. But there was something worse than the enemy in the mist. An ancient power was waiting to prey upon those who opposed the Third Reich.
Jack Chambers survived the war, but even after all these years, he still has nightmares about Hürtgen—and the unholy horrors he battled there. Now he is determined to reveal the truth behind his platoon’s massacre and entrusts the task to his grandson, Sean. But Sean’s quest sets him in a deadly race against those who wish to bury the truth forever—and those who plan to use it to unleash hell on Earth.
“Combining Masonic history, mysticism, and Nordic rune-lore, Moreland’s tale of a world at war is equal parts horror story and spine-jangling thriller. An adventure not to be missed!”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Map of Bones and Black Order
“Brian Moreland has created a great horror novel … Shadows in the Mist is probably one of the best books I've read this year.”
—Horror Bob, The Horror Review
“There’s a solid story here ... one that mixes elements of Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay ... and the fast-paced thrillers of John Saul.”
