A lonely, foggy island is home to eight families. Twelve-year-old Hal and his friends have always wondered what happened all those years ago on the mainland, that unseen place Out There beyond the fog, and after an astonishing discovery in the woods the children are more determined than ever to find out what their parents are hiding.
But their lives are turned upside down when Abigail reveals her closely guarded secret. According to her the children are slowly changing into monsters! Are they freaks of nature or subjects of a sinister experiment?
Each child reacts differently to his or her unique monstrous transformation; after all, one may feel proud to be a dragon, faerie, or centaur, but who in their right mind wants to be a sadistic manticore or cowardly harpy?
Island of Fog is a story of intrigue and conspiracy. The listener follows Hal Franklin as he struggles to accept that he and his friends are something more than ordinary children and that their parents have been covering up the truth the whole time. With their trust shaken and the unexpected arrival of a strange woman from Out There, the children hide their frightening shapeshifting abilities and pretend nothing is wrong.

A Different Kind of Island!
When the kids got to the top of the lighthouse and saw and felt the sun for the first time in their lives.
How he gives each character their own unique voice and traits. I particularly liked what he did with Miss Simone. Her voice was other-worldly, but believable.
This story holds the interest of kids as well as adults. I am looking forward to book 2.

Definitely! The narrator was clear and colorful with defining each character with a change in his voice! The story kept me wanting more!
I enjoyed the ever developing friendship during the time of what must have been frightening when they learned who they were
Of course I loved everyone but you couldn't help but feel what Hal was feeling!
The whole story moved me. If I had to pick just one was the proud feeling of accomplishment by everyone's teamwork!
I went on and purchased all 9 of the fog series and read each one. Now I feel lonely. I want more. I loved the adventures, happiness and sad, love and overall that these young people taught that with team work, anything is possible. I'm proud of the writer, narrator but feel like I'm family to the characters! A must read or audible definitely. I'm a grandmom and enjoyed it. My children 6 and 8 want to hear it again! Now we're learning to read the series. Thank you
