Blog Tour: Fortress of Mist
Author: Sigmund Brouwer
Series: Merlin’s Immortals
Number in series: 2nd
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Number of pages: 217
Time period: 1300s
Publisher and price: Waterbrook Multnomah, $7.99
My overall opinion: This was a good story, aimed at tweens I suppose, set in a simply fascinating time period. It also included a very interesting cast of characters. I must admit that I highly recommend starting with the first book, The Orphan King. I wasn’t able to do this, and thus, I’m afraid that I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I would have – some parts were quite confusing, but I think it’s due to my lack of background with the series. However, it’s got a good story like I said, and mystery abounds throughout its pages. Adventure too moves along quickly in this one! Completely clean, and I think I can safely recommend this series for tweens and early teens.
