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 (from publisher's web site).
OK I am really anxious for this one to come out. Love the cover art and the synopsis sounds very ominous.
So what are your waiting for?
