Casi McLean touched on many emotions in Beyond the Mist: guilt, love, regret, anger, remorse, and fear. She had us step into the past, relive the horrific moments of 9/11, and feel the desperation to alter a moment in time. If given the opportunity, I can’t imagine many who would not want to tweak those course of events.. despite the unknown changes that might occur in the future. To save a love one. To save everyone. It is so tempting. Nick faced such a temptation and we discovered, with him, how one small change ripples.. tears….. causes more harm than good.
After the horrific carnage unfolded around them, Nick and Piper had no option but to head back to their time. The past had to stay the past. Instead of an easy journey back to their timeline, these two destined loves got thrust (painfully) into the future. Again, Casi tapped into two prominent emotions felt throughout this suspenseful tale: fear and love. Nick and Piper feared never going home. Never being together again. But, as you had guessed, love finds a way. They found each other. They found home. But the surprises and twists don’t end then and there. They are not the only two who found a HEA. Plus, she ended the story with one heckuva setup for the next Lake Lanier Mysteries.
The author lovingly paints a well-researched portrait of 2001 New York City, in the days leading up to the catastrophic event, with great attention to detail. The characters who travel back in time are the only ones who know the horrors about to unfold, filling them with emotional upheaval on so many levels. How would it feel to know thousands are about to die horrific deaths and not be allowed to stop the terrorist event? Would you be able to walk away? This is the moral dilemma the characters face, and we as readers struggle along with them.
I do have to agree with a few other readers that re-living the events of September 2001 might be too much for some readers. I was not in NYC on that fateful day, but my sister was and I would definitely not recommend this to her or anyone else who might be triggered by the content.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 4.5 stars and a PTSD warning.
It poses the further question of what may happen to our world if we as a society cannot decide to solve issues with discussion rather than violence.
Don't we all wish we could go back and fix the wrongs we have done to those we care for?
All of the familiar characters from Beneath the Lake are present but Nick has unfinished business with his old girlfriend, Carly.
Without spoiling any of the great moments of this story I will tell you the following:
As a native New Yorker and a Manhattanite, everything about Septemebr 11th is etched into my brain. The sights the smells the stupid details-everything.
Reliving it in a small way in this story, I was pulled into the feelings of Nick when he realizes he can travel back to that fateful day via the power of Lake Lanier's turbulent depths and the genius of Sandy and "Tess."
Casi McLean does a great job catching the reader up with the aftermath of the first story and the buildup to Nick's journey.
All I can say is once I started reading, I couldn't stop turning the pages. I was mesmerized to the point that I missed my stop on the subway! The story builds as the reader and Nick relive that gut wrenching day and he tries to right the wrong he's convinced he has done.
Beyond the Mist is a story about the steadfast love, how good people strive to honor the living and the dead, the powerful grip of guilt and memory and the blessing of redemption.
Favorite line: "The wind at the tower felt more like an entity, a presence constantly murmuring its own secret song."
Warning: This book might traumatize you from true past events. I feel quite stressed as I write this.
This is without doubt the darkest time travel novel I have ever read. It is also the most complex with the future or the past constantly changing with upsetting results.
But that being said, I never stopped reading. The story is well written and has a real message for the world to take heed. Our current situation is very close to self-annihilation. And unlike the story, we have no ability to undo any disasters in our future once they occur.
You probably shouldn’t read this late at night. I probably won’t get a bit of sleep tonight. However, it is absolutely worth reading…just don’t expect it to be fun. But I do expect you’ll keep reading.
