Fortress of Mist: Book 2 in the Merlin's Immortals series by Sigmund Brouwer

The throne is redeemed, but the battle is just beginning.          

Thomas has reclaimed the throne of Magnus but a threat rises against his new leadership--the druids. Further, a neighboring kingdom is insisting that Thomas help in England's fight against invaders from the north and he's obligated to help--though he fears that the Earl of York may be working with the secret sect of druids that seek his throne.

Thomas has fulfilled part of the destiny he was born too, but he is discovering that there is much more yet to unfold. He must tread carefully as he is unsure who to trust or where to turn to for guidance. As a young Lord of his castle he is discovering secrets that have been uncovered for ages. In his quest for truth Thomas must decide whom he will serve, but he is learning that this decision may not be based on facts, but faith.

I enjoyed the story, it was a pleasant read. Although aimed for young audiences anyone who enjoys stories involving castles, lords, superstition, herbalists, treachery, battles between clans, druids, and legends, you will enjoy this book. There were real players in this story such as Robert the Bruce, king of the Scots and the Earl of York. Edward II is also mentioned in this novel.

I received EBook from WaterBrook Multnomah Press in their blogging for books program for my review
