Disturbing, amusing, and sometimes downright weird, The Flame in the Mist by Kit Grindstaff is a wonderfully spooky romp of a book. A rural setting gives the story a simple and realistic feel, despite the overpowering factor of the Mist which covers everything. I liked the new take on the recent trend of all things dark and disturbing, intertwined with just the right amount of humor. Subtle romance weaves through the story, making it a sweet story as well as an exciting adventure. All in all, The Flame in the Mist is a book that will be loved by readers of all kinds, loves, and fancies.
