When I finished the first book in Sigmund Brower’s “Merlin’s Immortals” series, I was eager for book two to arrive and it has not disappointed. “Fortress of Mist” picks up the story from “The Orphan King” and continues to run at a wonderful pace through a world laced with fantasy, intrigue and mystery. Thomas has come into his kingdom but his troubles are far from over. Now he must negotiate the murky world of politics, never knowing who to trust and who is on his side. As two opposing forces fight for his allegiance, this young king must tread carefully knowing that all he has fought for may be lost in one wrong decision.
“Fortress of Mist” delivers the second installment of Thomas’ story with deepening plot points and well-written storylines that will take you further into this ancient land and leave you, alas, waiting as I am for the next installment! I highly recommend this series for fantasy fans of middle school grades and upward to adults.
“Fortress of Mist” was provided to me by Waterbrook Press for this review as part of their Blogging for Books Program. The opinions, however, are entirely my own.
