One thought on “Arrow of the Mist

  1. Rebecca Lawton

    This is exactly the kind of book I would ve wanted to curl up with on my window seat with when I was a teen and my enjoyment of it now reminded me of how much I love beautifully written, epic quests with powerful female characters When I finished, I was a little shell shocked to find myself back in the real world I want to lose myself again in Mercer s forbidden lands, magic plants and ancient folklore Here s hoping we don t have to wait too long for a sequel

  3. Jordan

    A rollicking great epic journey with a strong female protagonist, Arrow of the Mist is a YA novel that is atmospheric and deeply rooted in Celtic traditions and herblore so real you ll believe the land of Brume is truly just waiting beyond the garden gate Mercer writes beautifully, and her protagonist Lia is strong, smart and savvy a wonderful role model for girls today, but this lyrical novel will captivate readers of all ages.
