Teeth in the Mist by Dawn Kurtagich-- Review & Giveaway


Author: Dawn Kurtagich
Pub. Date: June 11, 2019
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

A genre-bending epic horror-fantasy, inspired by the legend of Faust, that spans generations as an ancient evil is uncovered--perfect for fans of Kendare Blake and Ransom Riggs.

Before the birth of time, a monk uncovers the Devil's Tongue and dares to speak it. The repercussions will be felt for generations...

Sixteen-year-old photography enthusiast Zoey has been fascinated by the haunted, burnt-out ruins of Medwyn Mill House for as long as she can remember--so she and her best friend, Poulton, run away from home to explore them. But are they really alone in the house? And who will know if something goes wrong?

In 1851, seventeen-year-old Roan arrives at the Mill House as a ward--one of three, all with something to hide from their new guardian. When Roan learns that she is connected to an ancient secret, she must escape the house before she is trapped forever.

1583. Hermione, a new young bride, accompanies her husband to the wilds of North Wales where he plans to build the largest water mill and mansion in the area. But rumors of unholy rituals lead to a tragic occurrence and she will need all her strength to defeat it.

Three women, centuries apart, drawn together by one Unholy Pact. A pact made by a man who, more than a thousand years later, may still be watching...

TEETH IN THE MIST is a historical horror must-read!!  I can't remember the last time I've been addicted to a horror the way I was with TEETH, but I've spent the last several days engulfed in this creepy book.

I've tried reading this author's other books with no luck, so I was apprehensive with this one.  I was nervous about it developing too slowly and not being able to hold my attention like the other books.  I had no issues here, I dove right in and didn't once get bored.

My fave parts: The dual storylines & the mixed media.  This book is set in multiple timelines, but there are mainly 2 eras that are focused on.  Today, with Zoey-- a girl with magical abilities and a mission to find out what made her father go mad.  And 1851 with Roan-- a girl who has been brought to a evil house on a mountain... which may or may not bring out her evil side.

The mixed media is what this author does best.  Her other books make use of these pictures, diary entries, letters, etc. as well and I love what these elements do to the books.  Here it gave the book that extra splash of authenticity, which given that it's a horror, made it that much creepier.

The only thing I didn't love was the way it went from zero to HOLY SHIT with very little crescendo.  I wanted more of a slow build to the main event, but given that the book is 400+ pages, I don't think adding more to it is a good option.

I really can't say enough about how dark and compelling this book is.  The way the mountain and the house felt like live characters in the book gave it the best atmosphere... or the creepiest atmosphere anyway.  I also loved and cared about all (well, not Cage) the side characters.  I will now go and try to power through Dawn's other books that I didn't get into.  Now I know it had to be my mood and not the books!!

OVERALL: I am so glad I gave this author another try!!  This book is all you could want in a horror, plus there's a cool historical timeline and present-day mystery to solve.  The coolest part?  All the letters, journal entries, pictures, & news articles.  It gave the book that added spark.  Totally recommend for horror + historical lovers.

My Rating: 5/5

Dawn Kurtagich is an award winning author of creepy, spooky, and psychologically sinister YA, where girls may descend into madness, boys may see monsters in men, and grown-ups may have something to hide.
Her debut novel, THE DEAD HOUSE, was a YALSA Top 10 Pick, An Audie Award Nominee and an Earphone Award Winner. It has been optioned for TV by Lime Productions. She is also the author of THE CREEPER MAN / AND THE TREES CREPT IN, NAIDA and the forthcoming TEETH IN THE MIST, published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Orion Children's Books. If you enjoy a creeping chill along your spine, mystery and little bit of terror, then you're in the right place!

By the time she was eighteen, she had been to fifteen schools across two continents. The daughter of a British globe-trotter and single mother, she grew up all over the place, but her formative years were spent in Africa—on a mission, in the bush, in the city and in the desert.

She has been lucky enough to see an elephant stampede at close range, a giraffe tongue at very close range, and she once witnessed the stealing of her (and her friends’) underwear by very large, angry baboons. (This will most definitely end up in a book . . . ) While she has quite a few tales to tell about the jumping African baboon spider, she tends to save these for Halloween!

When she was sixteen, she thought she'd be an astronomer and writer at the same time, and did a month-long internship at Cambridge's prestigious Cavendish Laboratories.
