    Well, like her previous book, though intriguing and appealing to the eye; this was also hard to follow and disjointed. There are big ideas and concepts that don’t seem to lead much of anywhere. Something will seem to happen only to be easily fixed or ignored. The timelines didn’t bother me but the writing just kept throwing me off to where I had to go back and see where I had left off with that character. It was the same for me in the other b...

    “You wield power no woman aught. You should be burned ALIVE!”I listened to Teeth in the Mist on audio and the production is truly fantastic and creepy but I have also heard the paper version includes lots of little extras and artwork that you miss out on if listening only to the audio. As I’m a wee bit confused and feeling a little dazed after my listening, as if I just awoke from a fuzzy nightmare, I may go ahead and splurge for the hardco...
  • Ellen Gail
    Both haunting and baffling, Teeth in the Mist falls somewhere between two and three stars. And I have simultaneously zero thoughts and every thought possible about it. “Tempt a girl to evil using evil. How quaint your faith must seem to you. To bend it so.” Let's start with the positives: a BIG one is originality. Yes, it's a loose interpretation of Dr. Faustus, but it's an elaborate and ambitious tale of it's own. Dawn Kurtagich is fucking f...

    This was NOT an easy read but it was a really interesting one. This book is a mix of House of Leaves in YA form and the exorcist...maybe? It's about the devil, it's about blood magic, and it's about generational terrors. This is a VERY dark YA novel, a very bloody and gruesome one but it did work for me. Trigger warnings for death of a parent, abuse by parent, torture, branding, drowning, cutting, blood magic, sexual assault, parental neglect, th...

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/06/30/...I’ve read all of Dawn Kurtagich’s YA horror novels so far and Teeth in the Mist is probably the most elaborate but also the toughest to get into. A loose retelling of the legend of Faust who sells his soul to the devil for knowledge and power, the novel weaves together past and present to tell the stories of sixteen-year-old Zoey Root, a modern-day high school student, ...
  • Trina (Between Chapters)
    The audiobook was a fantastic production. Multiple skilled narrators, music, sound effects. You can tell it was crafted with passion. Unfortunately, I hated the actual story. Just like her first book, there are parts that didn't feel necessary to the story. Too many focus points meant too many open threads at the end. I didn't enjoy how the 4 timelines wove together, not enough payoff for me.I think I would have enjoyed this more if it had focuse...
  • Laurie
    All hail the new queen of goth romance and YA horror! This book is that rarest of things - something truly unique (it harkens back to goth classics of literature like Jane Eyre and Rebecca but is infused with a witchy, feminist sensibility that completely reconfigures the genre). READ THIS BOOK IN PHYSICAL FORM or you'll miss the GENIUS use of font/page color/graphics to build atmosphere and tension (one of my favorite things about this author's ...
  • Kimberly
    3.5 Stars.TEETH IN THE MIST, by Dawn Kurtagich is a dark, atmospheric tale that focuses on three separate timelines: The 1500's, the 1850's, and present. I had no problem in following along the different characters/years, and enjoyed the one set in the 1850's the most. The characters were the most "focused" on in this part, so they stood out the best. I loved the attitudes, suspicions, questions raised, and .... abilities that were brought into p...

    4.5 stars OMG!! THIS AUDIO BOOK! forget yesterday, you needed this audio book last month! The cast of narrators is so freaking amazing. they REALLY get into reading this phenomenal story. the added sound effects and ambient noises is like sprinkles on top of the best birthday cake ever. there is multiple stories going on at once, the story of Roan and Zoey mostly. they are tied together by Mill House. There is some other characters but they are ...

    Cool. I'm not gonna sleep tonight. All I'll see is a shadow in the corner of my room on a rocking chair! The audiobook gave me the eeby geebies with the devil whispering and stuff. I read my first HORROR! I read Sawkill but it was more of a paranormal mystery. This was a HORROR and I liked it!
  • Patty (IheartYA)
    Odd, strange, unusual. Dark, sinister, twisted. Confusing. I wanted to like this so much, but it didn't make much sense. The writing style is like a puzzle box full of corner pieces, impossible to put together and get the full picture. The premise had heart, the artwork and effects were a unique touch, and the creep factor was definitely there, so that is why I am generously giving 3 stars. (I hadn't realized this book was by the same author of A...

    3.5/5This was a fucking weird ass book. But you must expect that with Dawn Kurtagich. I read her other book The Dead House and it was equally as creepy. Both are also told in a very interesting format. The full cast audio for Teeth in the Mist was incredible, especially the male narrators. We follow three young women separated by time, but their stories manage to intersect regardless. Zoey has always been obsessed with witches and the abandoned M...

    There's got to be a sequel to this amazing book! I loved this book so much! It reminded me of The Dead House and The asylum by Madeline Roux. I need a sequel. PLEASE!! AAAHHH I loved this book so much!
  • Shanah
    For this review and many others, please visit - https://bionicbookwormblog.wordpress.comWhen I read the last sentence, I closed the book and stared at it in my lap for a solid minute. All I could think was “What the hell did I just read?”…. but in the best way possible! This book was HIGHLY addicting. Maybe even bordering on obsessive and hypnotic! None of which I was expecting. This book was such a surprise!Let me first warn you that this ...
  • Tonya (Rustic Book Reviews)
    I noticed I rated this a 4 star... After thinking on this and I keep wanting to reread and I talk to everyone about this book - I am changing it to a 5 star. This book was great. Trigger Warning: Demonic sounds in the audiobook, Death, Gore, Creepy factors, Cutting, self-harm.I took a few days to dwell on this one! I really enjoyed the book but I had to take a moment and wrap my head around the timelines and how they all came together. I am going...

    The full review + more can be found at The Book Bratz *Trigger Warning: This book does contain a scene with self harm.*I'm on a horror novel kick lately, so I was super excited when my library got a copy of Teeth in the Mist. I've seen so many people say how creepy and dark and fantastic this book was so I couldn't wait to get my teeth into it. (Ha, see what I did there? Teeth.) I've loved Dawn's previous novels so I figured I was hitting a home ...
  • Sam (she_who_reads_)
    If you’re looking for a really creepy and gruesome horror novel- then look no further! I listened to the audiobook and let me tell you- it is phenomenally well done! Lots of spooky sound effects, whispering demonic voices...basically don’t listen to this alone at night I will say, I wish I also had a physical copy to read along with because not only does the physical copy have illustrations and other little extras, but I truely had a hard ti...
  • Laura Thomas
    I’ve been struggling on how to write my review for this. So much I can’t tell. There are a few different POVs to follow and I did get a bit confused there. Other than those bumps in the road, I couldn’t put this down. It had a brooding, dream like quality to the telling.I’m all for books with an isolated setting and anticipated some hard times for these characters. Hard was putting it mildly. Whether reading about the past events or curre...
