Synopsis

1943. As war sweeps across Europe, Max Carver's father moves his family away from the city, to an old wooden house on the coast. But as soon as they arrive, strange things begin to happen: Max discovers a garden filled with eerie statues; his sisters are plagued by unsettling dreams and voices; a box of old films opens a window to the past.Most unsettling of all are rumours about the previous owners and the mysterious disappearance of their son. As Max delves into the past, he encounters the terrifying story of the Prince of Mist, a sinister shadow who emerges from the night to settle old scores, then disappears with the first mists of dawn . . .Originally published in Spain as a young adult novel, THE PRINCE OF MIST is a mesmerising tale of mystery, romance and adventure.

The Prince Of Mist
A young adult read.....
Surprised to find this was a young adult read....however, I enjoyed the book. Perhaps Waterstones should have just kept it in the childrens section only.

Ok, but not outstanding
I hadn't intended on reading this as I normally avoid the young adult genre, but it was 20p! The father of the family decides that they need to move from ... READ MORE

Hugely disappointing, but......
But, I'm not twelve or thirteen years old! That said I can see the origins of the spectacular writing I've come to expect and admire from Zafon. Two and ha... READ MORE
