"The story is fast paced and filled with interesting action: traveling some beautiful but difficult terrains, facing a deadly virus, and battling evil alien slavers. The psychic powers add an exciting dimension and are an integral part of the plot and romance. The story jumps into action from the very beginning and keeps you engaged to the end...

... Although this book stands well on its own I definitely want to read Starquest now too! I encourage you to pick up the series for exciting and enjoyable reading."

"This book is wonderful! There are few books that hold my interest to the point where I can't bear to put it down, but Children of the Mist is most certainly at the top of this list. The attraction between Tamarith and Vidarh is beautifully written. The involvement of telepathy would appear to make it easier for them to share their feelings, but this isn't the case. If anything telepathy makes it harder as they hide their minds from one another. This puts their lives in danger more than once...

...Well done Hywela Lyn. I haven't read the first book in this series, but you can be sure I'm going to buy it as soon as I can. This is the type of book I love to read."

Children of the Mist is the sequel to Starquest, a novel I have not yet read. However, this is a stand alone story, and having absolutely no knowledge of Starquest, I was still one hundred percent able to follow this one.  Additionally, I am a big science fiction fan, so the terminology was quite familiar. There may be one or two little things someone with no knowledge of science fiction might be unfamiliar with- such as hypertravel or teleportation- but most of these concepts would be understood to even a casual observer of sci fi, and could easily be figured out from context.

Chock full of suspense and well-developed characters, Children of the Mist is exciting and well-written.   There are a lot of characters to root for, and a lot of twists and turns as Virdah and Tamarith discover their feelings, and try to save each other in this edge of your seat suspenseful romance.

Packed with excitement, adventure and cliff-hangers, Children of the Mist also has moments of profound tenderness and beauty, with stunning description of snow, ice-cats, glaciers and mountains. Telepathy features strongly through the novel and I was touched by the way Vidarh and Tamarith fell in love with, and also rescued each other, via telepathy.

Author/Reviewer Marilyn Thompson, Mind Fog Reviews (5 Stars) *****

"Hywela Lyn creates a very vivid and wonderful world in Children of the Mist. Her characters have depth beyond any I have seen in a science fiction novel. She has the ability to give them souls in the literary sense, which is a rare talent. The extensive descriptions of the world she has created forms in the mind almost like the memory of a place once visited. I enjoyed this story and felt as if it carried me along from beginning to end. There was no effort in trying to understand the plot and I found it to be a bit of a mystery as well. It was a journey well worth taking and I highly recommend this book as one of the best I have ever read. 

I look forward to reading more books by this author."

Reader Review:

An irresistable tale of love, friendship and accelerating excitement. The vivid description of the changing mood of the landscapes enhances this unputdownable novel. Moved by the tender moments of believable characters that I came to care for, I was spellbound by the difficulties they overcame. a very special book indeed.
