The Mist: a mysterious mist - or brume - that temporarily makes people forget everything... It exists within the deep and dark forest of Mire's Rest. Deep in the heart of the Mist is a safe zone, containing the village of Storm's Eye.
Outside the forest is Miresville, where people hate and fear the forest and the Mist. They occasionally abandon children or babies in the forest. The kindest give them to the mysterious Mist Walker, who walks through the Mist without harm and can create a path for others. He takes the abandoned to Storm's Eye when he can.
When Rosalynn O'Dwyer is chased into the Mist, everything begins to change. Miresville, Storm's Eye, and even the Mist itself.
