Devil's Mist by Liam Moiser is a short preteen story. Rosie and Jenny have gone on a camping trip with Rosie’s dad. Around the campfire, Mr. Brown tells the girls a story about the Devil’s Mist, about a cursed family whose daughter disappeared. After they get home, Rosie overhears her father talking to a woman and realizes that the curse surrounding the missing girl, Lucy, is failing and Rosie is the new target. Jenny and Rosie need to figure out what to do next. A new teacher arrives at the school at the same time as Lucy is coming to terms with the fact that she might have to stay in the future. Can she help Rose and Jenny? Will she ever escape the mist? Will Rosie’s father regret what he did? And who is the new teacher?

Devil’s Mist by Liam Moiser was a bit of a strange mixture of the paranormal, wizards and witches. It is a good story; it starts strong, right into the story straight away, and it continues in that vein. The story moves fairly quickly and a great deal of detail is included in the story, along with lots of action and some good dialog. The characters are well defined and likable, and the story is about the right length. The ending leads me to believe there may be a second book at some point. Overall not a bad story although I think it would benefit from a few illustrations dotted throughout, just to bring more life to the story; I think it is well written for its intended audience though.
