Title: THE KILLING MISTS
Genre: YA, light fantasy
Sixteen-year-old Valdís Pálsdóttir and her best friend Sven Jonsson aren’t heroes. They’re just two best friends, like anyone else in Thule. But when they witness, and miraculously survive, the killing mists’ return from legend into their lives, they refuse to live like prisoners while the killing mists come and go, asphyxiating anyone caught in the open.
Determined to chase down the myth’s truths, Valdís and Sven set north for the glaciers where the killing mists are said to live. The journey is long, cold, and unpredictable. The killing mists know Valdís and Sven’s goal, and will stop at nothing to prevent them from reaching the glaciers. Even with the friends they make along the way, Valdís and Sven aren’t sure if they’ll succeed, or simply be another tally in the killing mists’ ledger.
The sky hemorrhaged at the edges, bleeding onto the silhouettes of the trees lining the marshes.
