* I received a free copy of this audiobook through AudiobookBlast dot com in exchange for an honest review.
The genre for ISLAND OF FOG is actually difficult to pin down. There are components of several different genres which listeners would at first think incompatible. Yet somehow author, Keith Robinson is able to connect these seemingly disparate genres and to combine them into a wonderfully written tale.
I believe it is targeted at Middle Grade listeners, but Young Adult and Adult listeners will enjoy it as well.
I enjoyed ISLAND OF FOG’s unique mix of characters.
On an island off the coast of the United States are a small group of self-sufficient families. Each family has one child; a boy or girl twelve years old.
The island is covered with a fog that never lifts. In fact, none of the children living on the island have ever seen the sun.
One by one each of the children start to experience weird bodily changes. These changes are definitely not the normal changes that you might expect twelve year olds to be faced with at the onset of puberty. Something very strange is happening to them. I do not want to give away too much of the plot, so I won’t tell you what the changes are.
This audiobook will grab and hold your attention and the narrator is able to voice the many characters so that each one has it’s own distinct sound. This is actually quite a feat considering the number of characters.
This book is family friendly, but still contains enough suspense and adventure to grab and hold the listener’s attention.
Since it is summertime now and many families are heading off on driving vacations, I would highly recommend listening to this audiobook with your kids in the car. It is the type of book that kids from the age of eight and up will enjoy. It also has enough plot twists and science to keep the adults interested as well. Now is the perfect time to buy this audiobook.
ISLAND OF FOG is the first book in what promises to be an entertaining middle-grade fantasy series.
I rate this audiobook as 4.5 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
