The comparison of this book to Twilight is so misleading! There are no vampires involved, and definitely no sappy love story. Yes, it’s about a group of teenagers, and yes, they are unexpectedly plunged into a supernatural world against the backdrop of a stark landscape; but:
-- We are invited to follow six main characters equally, giving every reader someone to relate to.
-- The writing here is beautifully simple, as translated Swedish is at its best.
-- The teenage rebellion, the heartbreak, the desperation of six people unexpectedly trapped in a fog, when they know the world around them is mortally threatening and the stakes are high, give this book a uniquely ever-so-slightly ominous feel.
-- The tension is subtle but constant, which you only realize after you have been gripping the book under the covers for an hour past your bedtime.
Two more books are forthcoming. Highly recommended – did I mention that?
