Teeth in the Mist by Dawn Kurtagich is a YA Horror novel out now.
“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…”
Dawn Kurtagich has become my go-to for YA Horror. Her writing is just the right amount of creepy and crawly. This one in particular wasn’t her scariest, but it did have the vibes for it.
We follow three timelines: a girl from the present, 1850s, and 1580s who are all connected by this haunted house. Slowly, we get to uncover how they intertwine while also hiding from the dark.
I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t as scary, but overall had great Fall vibes.
