What you need to know before your trail

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…

The locations of West Fog Islan and ViaTerra are fictional thank goodness but do they not exist in some way under other names around the world?  This is the stark description of a cult, an island cult to highlight the isolating and remote, not to mention claustrophobic atmosphere associated with such things.

The villages of Fhelie, Haparanda and Hotel Lundia are included in the book although the author is keen to point out that many liberties have been taken with the places in question. Interestingly, there IS a Fog island off the coast of Maine in the USA…

“The small ferry bobbed in the swells n the dark water. They were close now, but couldn’t see the island” the morning fog was a heavy blanket on the sea. The horizon was invisible.”
