In Myra’s world, some people can flicker—become invisible—at will. The ability to flicker is a burden, not a gift. Flickerkin are viewed with suspicion by the ruling Plats: an invisible person might be a spy, a traitor, an assassin. Flickerkin discovered in New Heart City, the Plat capital, can be put to death. Myra, who is part Flickerkin, has never dared to use her inherited power.
But when mysterious happenings begin to occur around New Heart City—disturbances that appear to be caused by invisible people—the Plats’ fear and persecution of Flickerkin intensify. Myra sees her comfortable life eroding, her family split apart, and her budding romance on shaky ground. Violence between Plat and Flickerkin is inevitable, and Myra, with her dual identity and divided loyalties, is caught in the middle.
Tangled in intrigue, political manipulation, and betrayal, Myra feels mounting pressure to choose sides. And she knows that making herself invisible—the very ability she has desperately concealed—may be the only way to save herself.

I wish I could capture everything that I felt about Flicker and Mist in a more dignified review, but a list shall have to do for now:
• Myra was a fantastic protagonist. I wish I could sum up why she was just so fantastic. I guess it was mainly because she was so relatable. I loved that she strug...

I was really excited to read this based on the description, but it sorta fell flat to me. I found the characters unreachable and the world building poor. Although the concept is very different, It could have been carr...

What a wonderful book! I knew I wanted to read it but wasn't sure how much I'd like it. I'm glad to say it was pretty damned good! It's so much more than an awesome fantasy it has some very deep issues that go well with what's going on in the world today. I really hope there's a sequel!

Flicker and Mist was one of those books that as soon as I read the summary I found myself intrigued. This is the first book I have read by Mary G. Thompson but it won’t be the last.
This story had an interesting premise and I found myself sympathizing with Myra as she is continually faced with so...

The author does a great job of creating a world in which people can flicker to invisibility. Myra is a teenager who can flicker but has to hide it because she lives in a community that is biased against flickering. Several attacks from invisible people cause concern and prejudices increase.
