[#5] Book Review: Fortress of Mist by Sigmund Brouwer

Fortress of Mist 
(Merlin's Immortals #2)

Fortress of Mist (Merlin's Immortals, #2)


Following Thomas' conquest of Magnus, the young ruler must now lead his people into a new era - one which is sure to reveal dark forces at work behind the evil undercurrent that controlled Thomas' kingdom for so long. Who will stand with Thomas to fight against the mysterious Druids? After being abandoned by Sir William, of his remaining "adopted family," who can he trust? Can he trust either Katherine or Isabelle with his secrets-or his heart?


Fortress of Mist… It is the second novel in Brouwer’s Merlin’s Immortals Series. This book was classified as YA, though I would recommend it with younger teens. I think it would be fun to read this if you like calm, mystery and a little romance.

Honestly, these are not the type of books I would usually enjoy for I am more of a YA dystopian and paranormal reader. I’m not used to very calm sound of this book, though I liked it for it was a breath of fresh air after reading consecutive thrilling genres.

There was mystery, romance, deceit, betrayal and wisdom implied in this novel. The mystery evolved around the main character: Thomas. The events was narrated by a third person so the readers knows what’s going on, the mystery was only on the characters. The romance was nothing mushy. Deceit and betrayal, the supporting characters seem to deceit the main. Thomas seems to have a fight against the worlds. He has had those wisdoms that the reader could take time to think about. It could be a good way to connect with a book like this, though not everything was relatable for it’s mostly about warfare. Faith was also seen in this novel. Thomas has question about God that could give readers some insights.

Overall I found Fortress of Mist to be an interesting yet a quick calming read. The revelation on this book did its magic for me to keep interested on the coming events.

I received this novel for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Press in exchange for this review.

How much I loved it?
