A mysterious house harbors an unimaginable secret…
It’s wartime, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village. But from the minute they cross the threshold of their new home, 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.
This is on my wishlist because it piqued my interest right away. It seems to be something akin of what I normally read; epic, profound, captivating and enlightening. The other reason I decided this should be on my wish list is because my girlfriend thinks it would be a great way for me to become more a part of her blog and ‘fit in’. I figured I would go along just this once 😉 .
