More Praise for The Castle in the Mist:


“Rich description of the castle along with an elaborate map at the book’s beginning and an illustration at the end enhance the fantasy world….A sequel is suggested; beguiled readers will hope it happens.”
Kirkus Reviews

...Things I liked about this book is that it was very exciting and I never wanted to put it down. It was so good. Other things I liked about this book is it's very adventurous, and it's an amazing book. I didn't have anything I didn't like about it, it was just perfect.
