LoveReading View on The Cult on Fog Island

`I loved it...terrifying' Lisa Hall The deadliest trap is the one you don't see...

This is the first of a trilogy and therefore must, of course, set the scene for those to come.  It is about a cult that uses a beautiful old house on a Swedish island as its centre.  The leader is Oswald, naturally unbelievably charismatic.  Our heroine is Sofia, a sad lost girl suffering from a broken relationship and looking for a purpose in life.  An obvious recruit.  Oswald asks her to set up his library, an enticing offer.  All goes well until winter sets in and brings the fog of the title.  It also makes prisoners of those on the island.  Then things get spooky.  This is a long, slow read with little action but if you are interested in cults then you will find it fascinating. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

The Cult on Fog Island Synopsis

 When Sofia meets Franz Oswald, the handsome, charming leader of a mysterious New Age movement, she's dazzled and intrigued. Visiting his headquarters on Fog Island, Sofia's struck by the beautiful mansion overlooking the sea, the gardens, the sense of peace and the purposefulness of the people who live there. And she can't ignore the attraction she feels for Franz. So she agrees to stay, just for a while. But as summer gives way to winter, and the dense fog from which the island draws its name sets in, it becomes clear that Franz rules the island with an iron fist. No phones or computers are allowed. Contact with the mainland is severed. Electric fences surround the grounds. And Sofia begins to realize how very alone she is and that no one ever leaves Fog Island... ...
