Book Review: Mistwalker
AUTHOR: Saundra Mitchell
PUBLISHED: February 4rth, 2014
PREMISE: A man tries to lure a girl into taking his spot where he's trapped in a lighthouse collecting souls.
MY REVIEW: Mitchell is one of the many unsung YA authors out there. One of the things I like about her is that you never know what you'll get with her. Each of her books are different, except all have a paranormal spin to them. All are interesting and unique ideas.
This one is no exception. It's a paranormal but with little to no romance in it. It's just a straight up creepy story about a guy trying to get a girl to take his place so he can be free. He does do it by trying to seduce her, but it's made clear that this is not okay. It also throws in some timely observations about economy and its effects on people in a sly way.
Personally, I liked this one. The ending was a bit abrupt, but the story leading to the ending was interesting and it's nice seeing a author do something that is unexpected. Sadly, looks like the masses and I don't agree on this one. Oh well. C'est la vie.
WHO SHOULD READ: Saundra Mitchell fans, Paranormal fans, Stephan King fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five lighthouses
