The first novel in a USA Today bestselling series…
The mystery enshrouding Hutton’s Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders eighty years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.
Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead—the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton’s Bridge. Except to Tressa.
Tressa grew up with Granna’s stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton’s Bridge captive.
What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

Predictable but enjoyable
It’s overall a good book and I found it hard to put down. Some of the plots points are quite predictable so only three stars but it’s light reading material one can enjoy anywhere.
Altough the main story is not overly original (evil dragon that reigns with terror and blood) I really do like the background details and the threads the story is woven of. Lacks a bit depth but will read on.
I enjoyed the plot somewhat but I found Tressa unconvincing and never really warmed to her. The characters I did enjoy such as Leo weren't in the book for long enough! A lack of layering and world building left the book flat and I wasn't inspired to read the next book or pay money for it. A decent effort but doesn't quite deliver.
