Publisher's Summary

The mystery enshrouding Hutton's Bridge is as impenetrable as the fog that descended at its borders 80 years ago. Each year, three villagers enter the mist searching for answers. No one ever returns.

Then a dragon falls from the sky to the town square, dead - the first glimpse of an outside world that has become nothing more than a fairy tale to Hutton's Bridge. Except to Tressa.

Tressa grew up with Granna's stories of the days before the fog fell. When Granna dies, leaving Tressa without any family, Tressa ventures into the fog herself, vowing to unravel the foul magic holding Hutton's Bridge captive.

What she discovers beyond the fog endangers the lives of everyone she loves.

A very interesting story. It lagged in some spots

but over all a good listen. Worth the time time to listen. Give it time.

Very Interesting Story

This was my first Megg Jensen novel and I really enjoyed it. The story was very interesting and imaginative. It would be hard to live in a society structured on such rigid dictates. Makes me wonder if circumstances have more impact on our lives than we think they do. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Way too preoccupied with sex.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Teen aged boys are the only group that I can imagine actually enjoying this series,

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something much more adult... actually have started on "Dawn of Wonder - The Awakening, Book 1", which seems to be more to my liking

What aspect of Emily Kleimo’s performance would you have changed?

Emily's performance was average. She is not a bad reader, but has a hard time doing the male voices.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story line was interesting enough, and I would have gone on to listen to the remainder of the series were it not for the constant preoccupation with sex. Honestly, if I were interested in a Harlequin romance novel, I would not have been searching for books in the SciFi/Fantasy section.

Any additional comments?

Miss Jensen has some talent as a writer. She just needs to remember which genre she's writing in and stick to that.

Painful

So - first i want to say that this started out... juvenile but a pretty good story. As tge pages turned however the characters became ever more plastic - and the writer defaulted into sex and violence. The sex was uninspired mysogynistic and just pretty gross. But the Amount of sex - which started as enuendo but became increasingly more blatant - pulls this off the shelf for anyone younger than 17 and i really dont think its written well enough to keep a 17 year olds attention.
I had a harder and harder time trying to stick with it to the end. Its unfortunate because the story idea is great! Its the writing that us so poor as to convince me not to for book 2. Not worth the effort.
In the audiobook version the reader was excellent. Good voices - good consistency. Well done.

Not worth the time

Had hoped for something more interesting. Characters and the story seemed a bit stilted and the narrator definitely needed to find a way to "tell" the story, not just read it.

Poor narration

Would you try another book written by Megg Jensen or narrated by Emily Kleimo?

No, I wouldn't listen to Kleimo again.<br/><br/>Megg Jensen? Maybe. But not on audio, though. Not if it's the same narrator.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The premise with the village surrounded by fog is really interesting. Tressa's grandmother too seems to be full of secrets, <br/><br/>I could have lived without the sex scenes, though. They didn't add anything to the story and it felt to me as though they had been added because Jensen thought that's what readers want. Probably some readers do. This particular reader doesn't.

What didn’t you like about Emily Kleimo’s performance?

She speaks way too fast, as if she's impatient to finish. Sometimes I'd have to go back a bit and listen again, just to catch the story.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

I might.
