A supernatural suspense that will leave you breathless and nervously checking your doors and windows. Sadie O'Connell is given a horrifying choice--she can let a kidnapper take her child, or watch her son die. Which would you choose?
My Review - 4
A fast paced great suspenseful ghost story with an unreliable narrator. Sadie was a recovering alcoholic, clean for 7 years but when her son is taken from her and her marriage is finally broken she starts drinking again. Can you imagine fighting for your child and being threatened by the kidnapper and only give in so you can save his life?
Sadie's son is mute from a tragic incident, I had figured out part of the tragedy but when it was revealed, wow, just wow. Once your child has been kidnapped nothing can be worst.
Sadie was a mystery writer but I understood how she couldn't use those skills to try to find her son, she was broken. It all became about fate. All readers will not be able to embrace the supernatural and fate dynamics but I enjoyed them, definitely took the unreliable voice to another level. Is she drunk, dead already, crazy or slightly tipsy sane?
The characters were good but I did feel like the book could have been longer, the side stories more drawn out as they were interesting, like the husbands work crime with the undercover agent.
Sadie was a great mother and I enjoyed the motherly instincts even though with the alcohol made her seem a little crazy. Mysterious fate brought it all together, very rewarding sad ending.
Children of the Fog is a free ebook for Prime members.
