Be careful what you wish for. One summer in 1943, as war threatens the rest of the world, the Carver family leaves the city and moves to a coastal village. Once there, things turn ominous. Teenaged Max and Alicia Carver learn about the Prince of Mist, a magician who grants wishes in return for a “favor.” 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 Zafón’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. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
