Book Review: "Niebla" Trilogy by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Genre: Horror
Source: Library

"In a mysterious house on the Atlantic coast, away from London threatened by war, Max will find that the challenges of today often have their rationale in unspeakable pacts sealed long ago inhabited by beings like The Prince of Mist.

Calcutta 1932, a train on fire through the city, and the circle of friends and Sheere and Ben must face the most terrible and deadly enigma of the city of palaces; an adventure, The Palace of Midnight, will change their own lives.

Entering a strange lighthouse, Irene and Ismael delve into the mystery of a toymaker whose life is torn between mechanical beings and shadows of the past.

"Niebla" Trilogy offers a unique combination of adventure, mystery and emotion." - Goodreads

I liked this trilogy, but I can tell that it's more appropriate for younger audience, so I did not enjoy it as much as I would have if I was a kid. Still, it was very easy to read, the stories were very interesting and unique and well written.

All of the books in this trilogy are with different stories so they can be read separately.

Personally, I liked "The Watcher in the Shadows" the most - it was the scarriest of them all, but I prefer the tragic endings in "The Prince of Mist" and "The Midnight Palace".

The character development was not verry well done, except for the villains who were my favorite part of the books. They were described very vividly and it was not hard to imagine and to be afraid of them.

Overall it was a good trilogy, but I wish I've read it when I was younger.

If any of you have read this novels, please leave me a comment what you thought about them and I'll be happy to read it.
