He conquered Magnus, but the real battle has only begun.

Thomas, new lord of Magnus, finds himself caught in a centuries-old battle between two invisible sides, both of whom desperately need him to join their forces. But with much more than just kingdoms at stake, Thomas does not know who he can trust and who is the real enemy; who is in disguise or who is what they really seem to be.

Full of the same intriguing and unexpected plot twists as The Orphan King, the Merlin’s Immortals series book 2, Fortress of Mist, continues the story of Thomas. If you haven’t read The Orphan King you probably won’t like this one, as you won’t much of the background of the story and you will find it hard to follow. However, if you HAVE read The Orphan King (definite recommend; loved that book!) then you will definitely want to enjoy this one as well!

Kudos to the author on a book well-written. Of course, now I am really eager for the next book in the series which is coming out at the end of October, because Fortress of Mist ended at a sort of cliff-hanger! I DEFINITELY would recommend this series as I have thoroughly enjoyed them! This is a series you won't want to miss out on!!

Thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah for sending me a free copy of Fortress of Mist in exchange for my honest review.

P.S. If you’ve read and loved Fortress of Mist and The Orphan King, you may enjoy Sigmund Brouwer’s book Wings of Dawn (also published under the title Magnus). It’s the story of Thomas, told a little differently, but the complete story all in one book. I would give it 10 stars; I loved it!
