Behind the Mist is a Gold Medal Winner of the 2014 Mom's Choice Award!Nick and his family spend their summers in the Colorado mountains where he first meets an exceptional horse named Jazz. What begins as a strong bond between a horse and his young rider goes beyond extraordinary when tragedy launches them on a thrilling journey to the land behind the mist. Celestia is the immortal home to noble and great horses that, based upon the virtues they developed on earth, earned the privilege to be given the power and status of a unicorn. Once they receive their horns, they serve as guardian angels to animals on earth.
Nick is the only human in Celestia--or so it first appears. As they learn more about this magical land, Nick and Jazz are compelled to embark on a mission into the Dark Kingdom that is ruled by the evil unicorn, Hasbadana. Though aided by special skills and unusual allies, the boy and horse confront powers that threaten to destroy them.
Join Nick and Jazz as they battle the forces of evil and demonstrate the transcendent power of loyalty and love.

"This is a beautifully written heroic tale that engages its readers immediately. While the realm is fantasy, the thoughts and actions of the characters are genuine. The author seamlessly blends modern day Colorado with a fantasy "After-world." The story line moves quickly so that readers maintain interest. Very appropriate for 9 years old and up. ( As a side note - This is a very comforting story for any child who has experienced the loss of an adult or a pet." Ann Goldfarb, Author "I have read all of the books in the Mist Trilogy. They were written for kids but I found myself riveted and couldn't put the books down. My imagination was stimulated and I found myself guessing what would happen to the horses and children in the book. We need more authors to write in ways that help us see the importance of being good. Thank you!" A Fan "I am 12 years and I got this book for Christmas. When I started reading it I could not put it down. I am in love with horses and this book suited me, if you are a horse lover you must read this." S. Wright "Behind the Mist is a most enjoyable reading experience, full of adventure and positive life principles our world so desperately needs to embrace. I can't wait to get started on the next one!" J. Stewart
