Summary & Review:
After learning that his two younger sisters have been taken captive by the lord of the Dark Kingdom, Hasbadana, Nick must leave the peaceful confines of the Kingdom of Celestia to try and rescue them. Offering himself as a prisoner in exchange for his sisters’ release, Nick soon finds himself captured as well. Only Urijah, the Lord of Celestia, can free them, but doing so means he must remain with Hasbadana. Knowing Urijah will never go back on his word to stay, Nick must figure out how to convince Hasbadana to willingly let him go. Finally, Nick, along with his companions Bethany, Lazari, and Mastis, decide the only way to free Urijah is to heal the shattered soul of Hasbadana. But, is that even possible?
This is the third and final book of my mother’s middle grade fantasy trilogy, The Mist Trilogy. It has been really fun to see her grow as an author since first reading her drafts of book one, Behind the Mist. I really like how she expanded the world of the Land Behind the Mist here with the addition of a cool underground kingdom called Mantelia. It was fun to see that new world and the creative creatures that occupy it. There was a lot of adventure and fun in this final installment and the pages flew by.
All three books of The Mist Trilogy, as well as her excellent stand alone novel North Mystic, are available at her website: http://behindthemist.com/buy.htm.
