ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:

It's war time, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village where they've recently bought a home. But from the minute they cross the threshold, strange things begin to happen. In that mysterious house still lurks the spirit of Jacob, the previous owners' son, who died by drowning. With the help of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to explore the strange circumstances of that death and discover the existence of a mysterious being called the Prince of Mist--a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in an adventure of sunken ships and an enchanted stone garden--an adventure that will change their lives forever.

I think that this book would be really great to have in audiobook form. While investigating the death of the previous owner's son, they stumble upon the Prince of Mist who is there to collect on an old debt. I love great mysteries like it seems this one is.

I usually don't have an interest in audio books but during the summertime it's nice to listen rather than flip pages when lazing at the pool. This sounds like it would be action driven enough to keep me from drifting off while catching a few rays.

The Prince of Mist is a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Of course, this leads me to wonder what is the debt and how does this "Prince of Mist" plan on collecting this debt.

The Enchanted Stone garden sounds interesting. I am currently reading City of NIght by Michelle West and it also has a vast and intricate stone garden. I wonder if it is also enchanted, but that that has not yet been revealed.

Aside from that it sounds like a really well-told story, I'm intrigued by the author's description of the underlying moral - about how a person becomes the person they become by their own hand. Sounds entertaining and deep, too!
Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

well I read about the author and watched the trailer and I didn't find either very interesting. I've seen better trailers. But I do no now it's a thriller, so I'm entering for my hubby. I'd probably get to scared, I'm such a baby when I'm alone. lol

The story line sounds great. It's wartime, a boat capsizes, characters escaping. It makes for fast-reading, compelling literature.

I would find it very interesting to listen to this book about a spirit who is not nice and is back to collect a debt. Sounds like it could be a little scary which would be enhanced in the audiobook form.
