A mysterious house harbors an unimaginable secret...
It's wartime, and the Carver family decides to leave the capital where they live and move to a small coastal village. But from the minute they cross the threshold of their new home, strange things begin to happen. In that mysterious house still lurks the spirit of Jacob, the previous owners' son, who died by drowning.
With the help of their new friend Roland, Max and Alicia Carver begin to explore the strange circumstances of that death and discover the existence of a mysterious being called the Prince of Mist--a diabolical character who has returned from the shadows to collect on a debt from the past. Soon the three friends find themselves caught up in an adventure of sunken ships and an enchanted stone garden--an adventure that will change their lives forever.
Max and Alicia Carver had never heard of the Prince of Mist. But when the two teenagers relocate with their family to a quiet ocean-side town--and into a haunted house--everything begins to change. Creepy statues in the garden, a box of old films belonging to a family that used to live in the house, nightmares, and strange voices convince the siblings that there is something very wrong. Slowly, with the help of their new friend Roland Max and Alicia begin to connect the dots surrounding the drowning death of a young boy years before--and slowly but frighteningly surely, the Prince of Mist begins to emerge.
