Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation...

In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott's bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother's identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott's, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour... and everyone is looking at her.


HIS HEART THRASHED against his chest, a prisoner desperate to be freed from this burden. There was no way out. He had a job to do, and if it wasn’t done at that moment, his entire plan would be over before it even began.
    The earth was but sludge, encasing his feet as he struggled up the bank. Bullets of rain struck his face as the winds lashed around him, obscuring his view and leaving him helpless in the dark.
   Then, as if a divine hand was guiding the way, a flash of lightning revealed his final destination; Erimus Hall. The Hall was only another hundred meters away, run down and deserted, but his sanctuary nonetheless.
    Resisting the temptation to rest against the stone wall at the top of the bank, he pushed on, clambering across it with the rain-soaked trunk in his hands. Once over and sure of his feet, he took a moment to look around. Any sign of someone following and he’d have to revert to his back up location, as even with his goal in sight, he wouldn’t allow himself the risk of assuming he was home safe.
    A clap of thunder quickened his pace and a minute later he’d reached the doorway, where a century’s worth of ivy had claimed the oak as its own. He set on it straight away, teasing back the creeper with a gentle hand, the whole time fighting against the instincts that were screaming inside his head.
    Just tear it down – you’re going too slow – someone’s going to see you!
    No. He couldn’t leave a sign that he’d been there. It had to look natural.
    Two more bursts of lightning gave him a glimpse of what he needed to allow his unmarked entry into the building. With the trunk safely inside he took one more look around, and with another strike of lightning, he was gone.

My Thoughts...

When we where first approached to be a part of the blog tour for Mist & Whispers by C.M. Lucas, our (my) curiosity was instantly piqued. This book sounded intriguing, and I couldn't wait to read the story.

It was really interesting to read this story, this book has a little of everything, love triangles, magic, dragons and more. Maybe a little to much more at some times in the story.


There are some things about the book I did not like. For example, once the story move from England, Anya start whining a lot. I hate characters that are whining , it take away from the story.

And when Anya finally stop whining, she get her magic on.

Overall; I really enjoyed Mist & Whispers, so much more than I expected to. Once I really got into the story, I absolutely could not put it down, and I love that it kept me guessing the whole time. Definitely check this out if you're into fantasy reads! I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next book.

Happy Reading!!
