Unfortunately, some of Sadie’s choices and actions made it difficult for me to really connect with her as a character. At times I felt sympathetic towards her, other times she was the type of character I love to hate, and on more than one occasion, I found her completely frustrating. I don’t need to like or respect characters to appreciate them, but the inconsistency was hard for me to deal with.
Issues with Sadie aside however, I really enjoyed the psychological thriller part of the story – it was written with the perfect amount of suspense, and the strong sense of not knowing if it was the character losing the plot, or everyone around her, which for me is the mark of a strong psychological thriller.
The horror and paranormal aspects I found rather gripping, although I wouldn’t personally class much of the story at all as horror, the paranormal aspect is much more prominent, and also a little more convincing.
Children of the Fog isn’t a perfect book, but it is the kind of book that I found easy to lose myself in – I wanted to know what was going to happen next, and I was pretty much captivated the whole way through. It’s just a shame that Sadie was so inconsistent for me.
The most annoying thing was that the book ended when my Kindle showed only 57% completed, the rest being made up with promotion for another book. This is unforgiveable.
The other most noticeable event in the book, which infuriated me immensely was the fact that the ending is solved on nothing more than our heroine's instinct. Nothing to make you think hmmm, that was clever, I didn't see that coming. The best crime writers will have given you clues along the way (whether you acknowledged them or not) and therefore the end gives you the satisfaction that a great amount of detective work was done to solve the crime, rather than how this book unfolds with pure intuition.
If it's free, give it a try. Don't expect miracles though and don't be disappointed if you do end up, well... disappointed.
