Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Here's my pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:
The Prince of Mist by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Release date: May 4, 2010
Apparently this is a young adult/middle grade book written by the well known author of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game!
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.
