My Rating ★★★★
I enjoyed Mist & Whispers. (I told myself a while ago I would stay away from YA now, but this one spoke to me). It’s a mixed bag of feelings after finishing it. It has the typical writing style of YA (with dialogue and characters) and I’m giving it 4 stars because I want to read the second in the series, which doesn’t happen often!
Love the story, the riddles, and I actually like Anya (the main character). It was fast paced at times, and kept my interest the whole way through. Awesome!
This may be entirely my opinion, but it could need a bit more descriptions of places and creatures. I personally LOVE detailed descriptions, so again, might just be a personal preference 🙂
Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation…
In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott’s bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother’s identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott’s, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour… and everyone is looking at her.
