Description: 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?

I was so excited to get my hands on the second book in the Merlin's Immortals series. I had loved book one and it left me hanging. I read Fortress of Mist in a day.

I have to say the cover drew me once again to this book. As with the first book, I don’t they could have made a more awesome cover. I can’t wait to see what they do for the cover of the next book.
The story had many unexpected twists, turns and heart stopping moments. The non-stop action kept me turning pages until the very end. Sigmund Brouwer’s writing is original and refreshingly different form many authors out there.

There are a couple of things about this book that I didn’t like as much, but those things didn’t keep me from enjoying the book. To me there was a lot of confusions surrounding one of the characters. I understand that Brouwer is building up for a big reveal in a future book, but it got a little frustrating at a couple points in the book. Also, some of the scenes that had to do with the Druids were a little creepy.
I can’t wait for the next book. Not only am I eager to see the adventure turns out, but also to see how the faith element develops.

I recommend this book for those how love adventure, suspense, and a story that isn’t typical.
