A mysterious house with an unimaginable secret...
It is war time, and the Carver family decides to leave the city to settle in a small coastal town where they have bought a house. But from the moment they cross the threshold, strange things begin to happen. In the mysterious house lives the spirit of Jacob, the son of the old proprietor who drowned years ago.
With the aid of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to summon the Prince of the Mists -- a diabolic creature who has emerged from the darkness to settle a debt from years past.
Soon the three young people find themselves in an adventure of sunken ships and enchanted statues that will change their lives forever.
About the Author
While Carlos Ruiz Zafón was first known for his books for young adults -- his El príncipe de la niebla (The Prince of Mist) earned the Edebé literary prize for young adult fiction in 1993 -- his first "adult" novel La sombra del viento (The Shadow of the Wind) garnered acclaim around the world and sparked what the author calls in our interview, a kind of “Zafón-mania."
"This superb young adult novel crosses into supernatural realms, and Jonathan Davis's performance offers its own kind of magic. Davis makes the transition from commonplace teen angst to paranormal regions naturally and believably. Carlos Ruiz Zafon's lyrical prose creates plausible characters and thrilling situations, all given substance by Davis's spot-on narration. A conversation with the author (who also composed and performed the incidental music) follows this engrossing tale." AudioFile"
