Into the Mist: Silver Hand

405 pages11 hours


In the woods behind the park ... buried beneath the ground ... a secret waits.

Thirteen-year-old Gabe Wrenn is unsettled by his family’s move to the creepy old house on Brynmor Street. Even more unsettling is the prospect of being the new kid in school on Monday when all he wants is to be left alone with his sketchpad.

But unsettled can’t begin to describe how Gabe feels when he first stands in The Woods, an old oak grove bordering the park behind his house, and a mysterious voice summons him to “the Door to the East.” It’s an epileptic hallucination for sure, and another sign that his bullying older brother Sam is right: Gabe’s nothing but a brain-damaged freak.

This opinion is not shared by Ellie Yvonne, the impetuous girl next door. With disturbing conviction, Ellie declares that Gabe’s epilepsy makes him special. It could even be the key to unlocking the secret of the Brynmor Witch’s bramble-choked grave at the heart of The Woods. Unfortunately, the neighborhood tough guy and a hot femme fatale have other plans for Gabe.

Prepare to embark on an adventure into the misty, shifting boundary zone between fantasy and reality.

"Into the Mist: Silver Hand" is the first book in a two-part fantasy adventure story about an unlikely hero who triumphs over isolation and adversity through friendship and a strange new sense of self-confidence that results when he takes possession of a relic of unknown origins.
