Into the Mist: Silver Hand delivers a powerful punch. Edge of your seat mystery, intrigue and adventure keep the pages turning, but it is the character depictions and the battle to find a way to overcome your circumstances that hits home.

Gabe, the main character, is saddled with a form of epilepsy that allows him to transport to another time and place during his ' auras ' or seizures. He is in a new town and a new school where his special affliction is a hindrance and pigeonholes him as a freak, and all his choices are dictated by others. Over protective mother, abusive older brother, doting father, school bullies, doctors - he's stuck. With help from his new neighbor, Ellie, his peer and new partner, he attempts to unlock hidden mysteries from the past and rectify his troubles of now.

In Elfythe, the world he transports to through a force working in the Brynmor woods where he resides next to, he becomes Mabon the Silver Hand - the last hope to stop the evil Grayman and Arawn out to destroy Elfythe, all it's people, including the beautiful Princess Goewyn. Finally his choices count and his confidence grows to be able to deal with his here and now problems. Problems which all teens must wade through to be seen for who they truly are.

Gabe/Mabon are fully realized characters, as is his cohort Ellie, who is solid-dependable-intuitive. The Celtic-Welsh mythology which abounds throughout this tale - reminiscent of Mary Stewart and Paula Gedge - gives you a flavor of fantasy that enhances this novel greatly. It is as if you are planted in two alternating existences that play off each other brilliantly.

I won't give anymore story away, but this novel has a lot to offer. Place, story, dialogue, teen angst, heroism, character - all are hit out of the park.

Epileptic seizures frequently are preceded by "Auras", a sense of disorientation, déjà vu, even altered sense of taste, the world just seems different. What if the Aura was evidence of something different? What if it is magic welling up?

Gabe suffered a head injury when he was six. Since then, the sensations he experiences have been diagnosed as epileptic auras. His mother is overprotective from a sense of guilt. His father turned away from his creative accomplishments in order to support his family. They move with Gabe and his older brother in support of Dad's career to a small town in the Northwest.

Just up the street is an empty lot, shunned by the town, where a witch died.

He is introduced to the dead witch's home site by a new friend. As he finds himself drawn to the site, he discovers that his new friend senses the witch. At the same time, his auras come more frequently and intensely and he begins to fall into trances where he lives the life of Mabon, the son of a goddess in a parallel world and the potential savior of that world.

Meanwhile he's trying to cope with the consequences of an overprotective mother and a bully older brother. He only has one friend in a new town and everyone thinks he's a wimp.

He knows he needs to save the world of Mabon, but this world keeps pulling him back. Will he be able to save it and will he be able to come back home?

The author does a great job capturing the life of a teenage boy suffering with numerous problems, but with the heart of a hero. Gabe is the center of the story, but the rest of the characters have real dimensions and are believable.

The book is face paced and the author has a superior command of words. The only problem I had is that the words sometimes get in the way.

I loved loved loved this book! So exciting ,entertaining, captivating! I actually kept forgetting that the main character is in middle school, which I'm appreciative of because a lot of the time when authors write in "teenage" form they end up sounding completely unrealistic! But not with this story at all! I loved both worlds in this book! Sometimes it can be hard to transition from one story to another within a book but I found that with each chapter I couldn't wait to get back to the other story loving both at the same time! So creative! I can't wait for the next one!

The Storyline...

This book was Amazing! I'm in so much shock right now. My heart is still racing.This book was very different. If you liked the Ranger's Apprentice, The Lightning Theif, and the Kiss of Frost series, you would definitely like this book. I loved the idea that the main character wasn't perfect.

The Characters...

Gabe was pretty awesome. I loved how he got the courage to help save The Mother and her people. He is nice, kind, and brave. Ellie was cool. She never thought Gabe was a freak and always stood by him. Sam was a jerk. I couldn't believe he would do that to his own brother. I loved Gabe's dad. He was my favorite character. He was always there for Gabe and understood him. Unlike his mom, whosmothered huim and wanted to drug him up. She treated him like an invalid. I never liked her.

In Conclusion...

I loved the action and the mystery of it all. I love how the drawings were intergrated into they story. I would actually reccomend this book to my guy friends. The ending was really good and such a cliffhanger. I can't wait to read the next book.
