War is here.
Toxic mist drives all life to the brink of destruction and the conqueror queen, Ines, has her talons in the kings of the realm.
Bleak, having discovered her true heritage, must now scour the lands for the one thing that might save them all.
But the search is a treacherous one, one that will push her to the very limits of endurance.
Amidst secrets, lies and the intricacies of battle, Bleak and her companions learn just how far they’ll go for the ones they love. But will it be enough?
As deadly forces grapple for power across the continents; families, friends and allies unite to take one final stand.
Explosive revelations, heart-wrenching betrayals and breathtaking magic soar in the epic conclusion to Helen Scheuerer’s bestselling trilogy, The Oremere Chronicles.
Once again, Helen Scheuerer has entranced us with another book in the Oremere Chronicles.
We are thrusted back into the amazing world that the author constructed, with characters we’re not ready to say goodbye to.
One thing I liked about this book is that we were able to pick up right back from where we left off. We’re reminded of what happened in the previous novels, and we’re pushed back into the story line we love.
The pace of this novel was fairly good. There were a few spots that were if-y, but otherwise, everything happened smoothly.
For that, I rate War of Mist 4 stars. I’m sad to see this story and its characters go, but I look forward to whatever Helen brings us next.
After writing literary fiction for a number of years, Helen Scheuerer was inspired to return to her childhood love of fantasy thanks to novels like Throne of Glass, The Queen’s Poisoner, and The Queen of the Tearling.
Helen is also the Founding Editor of Writer’s Edit, an online learning platform for emerging writers. In its first year, Writer’s Edit reached thousands of new authors, and soon became its own small press, with Helen overseeing the production and publication of three creative writing anthologies. It’s now one of the largest writing websites in the world.
Helen now lives by the mountains of New Zealand and writes full time. She has many more books planned for the future.
