‘Misty Falls’ – Joss Stirling

Misty Falls

I chose to read this as part of a Reading Challenge, and didn’t realise that it was part of a series. I feel I may have been more invested in some of the characters if I’d read the earlier books, but it does still work as a stand-alone novel.

As a Savant, Misty is incapable of lying. This, inevitably, causes some issues – but her biggest problem at the start of the novel is the revelation that a serial killer is hunting down young Savants and murdering them.

There’s the somewhat inevitable romance between Misty and Alex, though his appearance is important for what comes later.

During the story I definitely felt that certain events were overly manipulated, but I think this would appeal to younger teenage readers.
