Publisher Description

It's wartime, 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.

Great Read for Patient People

Not really much until the last few pages. I wish I could rate this 3 1/2 stars. Mystery and wonder fills the air... until you can't breathe and you find out everything. The Prince of Mist could get great sales even if it was priced higher. It would make a great movie. Way to go, Carlos Ruiz Zafon. :)

Despite being labeled "children's fiction", this book is an excellent read for all adults. If you enjoyed Shadow of the Wind, this book too with mesmerize you. It's haunting tale will keep you wanting more... Even after you finish.
