Oooh! It's almost Halloween! In this episode of the show, we discuss Teeth In the Mist by Dawn Kurtagich. You may remember Dawn's other books that we discussed in last year's Halloween special back in episode 4... a whole year ago! This time, we're talking about her newest book and, just like her first two, The Dead House and And the Trees Crept In, it's also very, very scary! And you know what's even better? She joined us for Would You Rather again. She's really fantastic. BUT. THE EPISODE WAS CURSED AND THAT FILE WAS CORRUPTED. So she did join us, but you can't hear it. Anyway...
I will say that I'm jealous of Claire because, like Dawn, she also lives in the UK. We recorded the WYR portion of the show at a very nice time of day for them... but for me... I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning! I'd do it again in a heartbeat though if it meant chatting more with one of my favorite authors. Dawn is totally worth being up before dawn.
That was a terrible joke. I'm sorry.
Here's a picture of us while we were recording. These are all taken at different times during our game and of course, I'm making terrible faces... because I always am. Oh well, at least Claire and Dawn are super cute. I guess this is our Halloween episode after all, so one of us has to be scary looking. I'll take this one for the team, guys. Don't worry.
Anyway, about this book... Here's the summary:
Before the birth of time, a monk uncovers the Devil's Tongue and dares to speak it. The repercussions will be felt for generations...
Sixteen-year-old photography enthusiast Zoey has been fascinated by the haunted, burnt-out ruins of Medwyn Mill House for as long as she can remember--so she and her best friend, Poulton, run away from home to explore them. But are they really alone in the house? And who will know if something goes wrong?
In 1851, seventeen-year-old Roan arrives at the Mill House as a ward--one of three, all with something to hide from their new guardian. When Roan learns that she is connected to an ancient secret, she must escape the house before she is trapped forever.
1583. Hermione, a new young bride, accompanies her husband to the wilds of North Wales where he plans to build the largest water mill and mansion in the area. But rumors of unholy rituals lead to a tragic occurrence and she will need all her strength to defeat it.
Three women, centuries apart, drawn together by one Unholy Pact. A pact made by a man who, more than a thousand years later, may still be watching...
DOESN'T IT SOUND SO DELICIOUSLY CREEPY? Yes. Yes it does.
So listen to this episode where we talk way too much about the book. Also! Guess what! Dawn has agreed to give away a signed copy of Teeth In the Mist to one of our listeners, so pay attention to social media to learn how that lucky person could be you.
