The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Prince of Mist

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.

 Oh my god..  This book was amazing.....  I just loved how the story lines wove into each other and slow revealed the secrets of the story, which did not reveal itself until near the end of the book.  The copy I have was only 202 pages, with very large font and did not take me long to read.

Before I started reading this book, I had the impression that this was a story aimed at teenagers/young adults but after reading it I can definitely say that anyone of any age would enjoy the story, especially if you like stories with a big twist at the end....  You really have to read this book.........  Its amazing!
