The Prince of Mist - Carlos Ruiz Zafón Although this book is written for kids, I still enjoyed it. Carlos Ruiz Zafon has magic in his pen and it was present even in this, his first novel. I will read everything he writes. By the way, if you have not read Shadow of the Wind, you are missing one of the most imaginative and original novels in a long time. Think Charles Dickens meets Edgar Allan Poe....
