A spell to weave. A life to save.
A heart to break. A storm to brave.
When Rhiannon's mother dies, her whole world falls apart, and she withdraws from her family, her friends and her life. As grief and anger rage within her, she connects with the wildness of the winter storms – until she's consumed by the powers they unleash. A priestess tries to help her, a woman from the mists seeks to comfort her and her little brother attempts to reach her, but she doesn't know how to find her way back.
Entwined throughout is the story of her mother, which reveals a haunting mystery. Why did her parents keep such a dark secret? How will a spell she casts in the woods one full moon night unravel her? Who is the woman in red she encounters atop the sacred hill? And what chaos will be wrought by a girl from the other side of the world with a strange link to her father?
As the darkness of her shadow self is revealed, Rhiannon must find the courage to go into the storm and face her greatest fears. But if she does, will she be transformed by its terrible power, or broken and lost in the wreckage?
"This book takes you on such an emotional journey, and makes you believe in real magic. I loved it."
Selina Fenech, author of Memory's Wake
"Into the Mists is healing, empowering, inspiring and magical. I loved every single page. I haven't enjoyed a book this much since I read Heart's Blood by Juliet Marillier."
