Devil’s Mist


It starts typically enough. A camping trip with a friend’s family, with a campfire to sit around and tell scary stories - except Rosie’s dad says this one is true. According to legend, the house across the lake hosts a strange curse, a missing daughter and a threat that anyone who ventures close will meet the same fate. Rosie and Jenny shrug the story off, but as events escalate, it becomes crystal clear that the curse is real and someone else is the next target. 

Although they try to deny the truth, a note from an unlikely source confirms their deepest fears. Lies unravel, allies form and the truth about what happened back then threatens to come to light. But one answer remains shrouded, haunting all involved: Will they escape the mist before it comes for them or are they doomed to be lost forever?

Devil's Mist by Liam Moiser is a short preteen story. Rosie and Jenny have gone on a camping trip with Rosie’s dad. Around the campfire, Mr. Brown tells the girls a story about the Devil’s Mist, about a cursed family whose daughter disappeared. After they get home, Rosie overhears her father talking to a woman and realizes that the curse surrounding the missing girl, Lucy, is failing and Rosie is the new target. Jenny and Rosie need to figure out what to do next. A new teacher arrives at the school at the same time as Lucy is coming to terms with the fact that she might have to stay in the future. Can she help Rose and Jenny? Will she ever escape the mist? Will Rosie’s father regret what he did? And who is the new teacher?

Devil’s Mist by Liam Moiser was a bit of a strange mixture of the paranormal, wizards and witches. It is a good story; it starts strong, right into the story straight away, and it continues in that vein. The story moves fairly quickly and a great deal of detail is included in the story, along with lots of action and some good dialog. The characters are well defined and likable, and the story is about the right length. The ending leads me to believe there may be a second book at some point. Overall not a bad story although I think it would benefit from a few illustrations dotted throughout, just to bring more life to the story; I think it is well written for its intended audience though.

I managed to get this copy of Devil's Mist by Liam Mosier off of Library Thing in exchange for an honest review. I was surprised when a physical copy arrived through the post instead of it being sent to my kindle. Straight away I noticed how incredibly thin this book was, but I was happy as I would not have had time to read a thicker book.

I did enjoy this book, not as much as others as it was a big change from reading books with plot twists and more in-depth characters. It's perfect if you haven't read a lot of mystery/thriller books and would like to get into them. The whole story of the mission girl and the mist is a very interesting story and found myself wanting to find out what happened to her. However, a few characters were just dropped into the story towards the end without much context behind them bein there. The story as a whole was very interesting to read and I enjoyed it, but it could be structured a bit better to make it flow easier to the reader.

A spooky short story for preteens, that is very engaging right from the get go.
The characters are all very interesting and the suspense of the story keeps you intrigued throughout.
Though this is a short book it is very well written and full of adventure. The paranormal action is tactfully composed as not to be completely terrifying for youngsters but still has an edge.
The ending makes me believe it could be leading to a sequel!

by LK

This book is for a young audience. It has short scenes/chapters but I think that helps younger readers to concentrate on and follow the story without getting distracted. It's engaging.I like the adventure and paranormal themes within the book.

The story is compelling without being too frightening and the characters were very likable. Overall, a great book for youngsters.

by lemonaleslie

Right from the beginning of this story I was captivated. It was very action packed and never had a dull moment. The mystery was very intriguing and I enjoyed following the characters as the story began to unfold. The only criticism I have is a character that was introduced at the very end of the book suddenly became very relevant! I would have liked to have to have seen more of James a bit earlier on. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wouldn’t mind reading it again sometime,

by Beth

This book was exciting from the first page until the end! It's written for a young preteen audience and would be a perfect introduction into the world of paranormal fantasy or mystery. I enjoyed the quick pace and only wished there was more of this story to get sucked into. Devil's Mist is one I will definitely keep in mind to recommend to any preteen looking for a spooky story (my cousin would love this in a couple of years). At the end I was left hopeful of a sequel...I'll keep my eyes peeled. In the meantime, check out this book.

This is a short book and it is well written and full of adventure and paranormal action. This story feels like it is targeted to a younger audience however I still enjoyed the book. The ending makes me believe it could be leading to a sequel which I would love to read.

by Jess Garner

Great little short novel about two young girls wrapped up in a mysterious girl's disappearance connected to an old house. The girls are great at following leads to the mystery and it makes for a great young adult spooky story at this time of year. Plan on giving my copy to my 11 year old granddaughter as I believe she will enjoy it immensely.


A really short book but i was hooked once i started reading it. it was a great and a fast read, which is what I usually go for. honestly I really enjoyed it, while the ending was really unexpected. I really enjoyed the characters portrayed in this short read, especially the protagonist.

by Candi

Devil's Mist is a short book that tells a very intriguing story. Because it is short (68 pages), it is a quick read. The storyline is a little rushed and the character's stories could be developed a bit more. This being said, the book is a great read for a pre-teen/early teen and the suspense of the story, albeit quick, does keep you intrigued. Hoping for a sequel!!

by Bridgette

A camping trip, a cursed house, a missing daughter.

At only 68 pages it's a very short story but one that had me from the first page. I really didn't see how they could come to a conclusion with so few pages but he did it. I'm not a big fan of such short stories but this one I would recommend reading.

by Sam

When Rosie goes camping with her dad and friend Jenny, her father tells a scary story while they sit around the campfire. Pretty typical, right? Wrong. He says the story is real and soon the girls are forced to confront the possibility that he is telling the truth.

This was a fun read! I'd definitely recommend reading this book at night! I did and even felt a little creeped out at times. Particularly if you're younger and reading Devil's Mist, as it is juvenile fiction, the scare level is perfect. The plot was interesting and easy to follow.
