About the Author

Cheryl Kaye Tardif is an award-winning, bestselling Canadian suspense author. Her novels include Children of the Fog, The River, Divine Intervention, and Whale Song, which New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice calls "a compelling story of love and family and the mysteries of the human heart...a beautiful, haunting novel." Her next thriller, Divine Justice (book 2 in the Divine series), will be published in spring 2011, in ebook and trade paperback editions. Cheryl also enjoys writing short stories inspired mainly by her author idol Stephen King, and this has resulted in Skeletons in the Closet & Other Creepy Stories (ebook) and Remote Control (novelette ebook). In 2010 Cheryl detoured into the romance genre with her contemporary romantic suspense debut, Lancelot's Lady, written under the pen name of Cherish D'Angelo. Booklist raves, "Tardif, already a big hit in Canada…a name to reckon with south of the border."

Format: Kindle Edition
Children of the Fog is a mixture of horror, psychological thriller and paranormal that is split into two distinct parts – the first part focuses on Sadie, her relationship with her son and husband, and the kidnapping of her son by a mysterious kidnapper known locally as The Fog. He’s been kidnapping children for years, and yet no one has ever come close to catching him. The second part is Sadie and how she copes without her son, indisputably the love of her life.

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.

I downloaded this book when it was free but I would of paid for it because its a brilliant book. The storyline is consistent, the characters believable. It's quite spooky in places and my emotions were up and down all the time. No other book has made my emotions jump from sad to happy like this book has. It's a fantastic book and I didn't want it to end. I can't find the words to explain how good it is. You won't be disappointed if you buy this book. I've only had my kindle for about two weeks and I must say it's one of the best things I've bought. It's opened my eyes to different authors which I would'nt normally of heard of. Buy this book I would give it more stars if i could. What a great author.

This book certainly kept me turning the pages but after a while it was only to see how many more cliches the author could cram into this (as it turned out) short book. It didn't help that it was the 2nd book I'd read in a week where a child became mute - not a good start. The main character had so many things happen to her I'm surprised her clothes didn't keep falling off. In the end I was laughing out loud when she yet again stumbled at a crucial time.

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.

I must say I really enjoyed this book. The plot was well thought out and kept you wondering right the way through. My emotions were on a roller coaster ride....one minute I was smiling the next trying to read through tears. I downloaded this as a free book, I would have gladly paid for it.....the best book I have read in a very long time. I will certainly keep a look out for this author.

Another book purchased on the back of 5 stars reviews (I'm gonna have to stop doing this and start researching better) that although was ok, it never got me to the 'one more chapter before I go to bed' stage. Far too many of the hiccups that happen to our main character hero were just way too predictable. For instance early on in the book, she is told that one day the car won't start due to an alternator problem or something similar and guess what? At the one moment in life when she needs it the most, the car doesn't start. It's a continuing trend through the book which means there was never a surprise.....never an I didn't see that coming kind of moment.

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.

I've had this book on my kindle for a while,I wish now I'd read it as soon as it was downloaded,what a book! It was a real rollercoaster, I don't even know how to describe it, part thriller, part horror/supernatural and just when I thought I knew where it was going it took me in a different direction.I loved it, I felt for the main character with her imperfections, and struggles and I liked some of the other characters a lot too,I was totally captivated by this book,and can't wait to read more by this author,definately a winner for me I recommend it to anyone who wants a page turner they can get lost in.This is an author I am starting to really like.
