Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A melancholy horror tale.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Jonathan Davis is excellently cast; his voice throbs with understated menace, which slowly intensifies toward the dramatic conclusion. Sound effects subtly add to the suspense and pleasure of listening. The audio performance is also accompanied by haunting original music written and performed by the author.” Publishers Weekly (audio review)
“This superb young adult novel crosses into supernatural realms, and Jonathan Davis’ performance offers its own kind of magic. Davis makes the transition from commonplace teen angst to paranormal regions naturally and believably. Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s lyrical prose creates plausible characters and thrilling situations, all given substance by Davis’ spot-on narration. A conversation with the author (who also composed and performed the incidental music) follows this engrossing tale.” AudioFile
“Translated seamlessly, this atmospheric tale is set in 1943 in an unspecified seacoast village…Permeated with a delicious sense of looming menace, the story lines converge inexorably in a terrifying climax. Intelligent and eerie, Zafón’s story will create nightmares and admirers.” Booklist
The Prince of Mist hooks readers from page one. It is a combination of mystery, suspense, and supernatural thriller. The author keeps readers guessing all the way till the end in a story that’s fresh, frightening, and beautifully translated. Awesome.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“Zafón is a master storyteller.” VOYA (starred review)
