Today I’m on the book tour for Amongst The Mists by M.L. Rayner, thank you to Zoé at Zooloos Book Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.
Synopsis: It was the most anticipated summer break of their young lives.
For Bran Lampshire, that summer of 1986 would be far different. The lure of a wilderness adventure sends him and his friends on a troublesome journey that would see them far from home and into the isolated shadows of the Sleathton Estate. In a forgotten land where nature thrives, an unexplained mist settles upon the shaded grounds. And stories were told of events so chilling, they were forcibly buried over time.
Lose yourself beneath the endless trees. And discover that legends are sometimes so much more than ghost stories.
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧
My Thoughts: Oh my word, this is how you do a ghost story properly, I literally couldn’t give this anything other than 5 stars, it was incredible!
The only problem being that I can’t tell you why! – part of the reason why I enjoyed this was because I just didn’t know where the story would go next!
Boundaries were pushed regularly and I was here for it… I had to put this book down a couple of times and distract my brain with mindless TV because it just creeped me out so much 🤣
We’re following 3 young lads who decide to go on a camping trip in the summer holidays, all is going well until one of them falls off his bike and hurts his back, this leads to one of them running for help and finding Gregory.. he lives alone in a lodge but happened to be in the area..
What follows is gripping, mesmerising, and just so hard to get out of your head. It felt so real I got goosebumps!
The story is actually told from 2 different perspectives & one of them you don’t learn who they are until the end!
Part of me is hoping for a follow up, but I’m also scared for a follow up because I can’t imagine what the author could possibly come up with next!
