Plot: This book had much more to it than the first book in this series. There were several plot twists and unexpected turns throughout the story. It continues perfectly where the first book leaves off, and ends at a place where you want to immediately read the next book.

Characters: The character development wasn't as good as the first book. Since you are already familiar with most of the characters, there was not a lot to be mentioned about the characters themselves, only plot advancement. I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing though, since this is the second book, you already know about the characters what you need to.

Themes: This book really deals with good versus evil and the struggle to sometimes know which side is in fact good and which evil. Thomas is forced to try to understand those of the strange symbol" while at the same time not really knowing anything about the Immortals.

Emotion: As with the first book, I did not think that there was much depth to the emotion. Towards the end, you read of Katherine's emotion's towards being bandaged and not being able to allow Thomas to see her for who she really is. I don't feel, however, that this is enough to compensate for the entire book.

Overall: I really enjoyed reading this book. It was another quick read that kept me wanting to know what was going to happen to Thomas and to Magnus and what each side of these opposing societies was going to do next. The last words in the book leave you in anticipation for what is to come in the next books.

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 dont they could have made a more awesome cover. I cant 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 Brouwers writing is original and refreshingly different form many authors out there.

There are a couple of things about this book that I didnt like as much, but those things didnt 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 cant 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 isnt typical.

I received this book from WaterBrook Press through Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
