ICO: Castle In the Mist

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A boy with horns, marked for death.
A girl who sleeps in a cage of iron.
The Castle of the Mist calls for its sacrifice: a horned child, born once a generation. When, on a single night in his thirteenth year, Ico's horns grow long and curved, he knows his time has come. But why does the Castle of the Mist demand this offering, and can the castle keep Ico's destiny from intertwining with that of the girl imprisoned within its walls?
Delve into the mysteries of Miyuki Miyabe's work of fantasy: a grand achievement of imagination, inspired by the award-winning game for the PlayStation 2, soon to be remastered in high-definition for the PlayStation 3.

Oh thank Dormin!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ITUNES!!!!!! I saw this and nearly passed out. I am Team Ico's #1 fan, and anyone who says I'm not is lying. I thank the great entity Dormin-sama for this!!! I love you Ico! <3

Not the best

I thought that this story detracted too much from the original storyline of the game. A lot of the time, the story of Ico and Yorda going to the castle seemed rushed. Their interactions seemed awkward, and they're overcoming of the language barrier between them was never fully explained.

Coming up with a backstory behind the castle's demise was interesting, but ultimately I just didn't like the story overall. It felt overreaching and didn't really do justice to Ico's minimalist/mysterious legacy.
