Kandide
and the Secret of the Mists
Book One

By Diana S. Zimmerman
Illustrations by Maxine GaddWHAT IF EVERYTHING YOU FEARED SUDDENLY BECAME YOUR ONLY HOPE?
AND EVERYTHING YOU LOVED WAS SUDDENLY TAKEN AWAY? Nothing was as it should be.A dense black fog enveloped the lifeless forest. Beneath Kandide’s feet, the ground was marshy and slick, and her nostrils stung with the acidic smell of rotting death. There was an uncanny sense of quiet—too quiet. Not even the chirping of a woodland bird could be heard. It was as though someone or something had scared every living creature away.“What . . . what is this place?” the Fée Princess whispered, more to hear herself speak, than expecting anyone to answer. “Why would mother have sent me here?”Careful not to s…
