A mysterious house harbors an unimaginable secret in this atmospheric, adventurous YA ghost story from the internationally bestselling author of "Shadow of the Wind" and "The Angel''s Game."
From the Publisher:
In 1943, in a seaside town where their family has gone to be safe from war, thirteen-year-old Max Carver and sister, fifteen-year-old Alicia, with new friend Roland, face off against an evil magician who is striving to complete a bargain made before he died.
Annotation:
Max and Alicia Carver had never heard of the Prince of Mist. But when the two teenagers relocate with their family to a quiet ocean-side town--and into a haunted house--everything begins to change. Creepy statues in the garden, a box of old films belonging to a family that used to live in the house, nightmares, and strange voices convince the siblings that there is something very wrong. Slowly, with the help of their new friend Roland Max and Alicia begin to connect the dots surrounding the drowning death of a young boy years before--and slowly but frighteningly surely, the Prince of Mist begins to emerge.

A lot of young adult books focus on a canny thirteen year old – someone wise, sensitive, and naive coming to terms with the illogical and intense world of adults. As parent to a 13 year old, I understand exactly what the appeal is. It’s a powerful age, with one foot in the world of childhood and one in the world of adults.

It is June 1943 and Max’s watchmaker father moves the family away from their city home to a beach house on the coast to escape the war. Though Max has been expecting it, the news is shattering, unearthing his sense of security....read the full review

Praise

"In gorgeously translated prose, Ruiz Zafón maintains a sweet, believable relationship among the characters when dealing with mundane concerns (a conflict over cleaning out a room full of spiders could be taken from any contemporary family film), but still conveys a sense of adventure and danger. The bittersweet ending suits the theme and setting, offering both hope and tragedy without any pretense of fairness." 04/12/2010
