The throne is redeemed, but the battle is just beginning.
I've always loved fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction best. This book has the feel of all of those combined. Merlin's Immortals is the second book in the Fortress of Mist series. It can stand on its own, but I do recommend reading book one first. I didn't but wish I'd had the chance.
The Fortress of Mist series is especially written for teens and I highly recommend it to anyone with teenagers! Fantasy stuff is so trendy right now and this series is an awesome option if your kids are interested in fantasy. The story is well-written and exciting, and the book has a message that's actually good for the soul. Believe it or not, what you read plays a part in who you become even when it's fiction, so don't take that lightly. Pick up something that's both good entertainment and spiritually invigorating.
In the dark corners of an ancient land, evil
lurks in the shadows. Powerful druids haunt the spaces of their lost territory.
Double-minded noblemen fight for domain and influence. Invaders from the north
threaten the kingdom of Magnus. This land of promise and redemption is mired in
deceit and corruption.
The Orphan King, once victorious in conquest,
appears to be losing his grip on his seat of power. Thomas rules Magnus, but
does not know whom he can trust. His enemies anticipate his every move,
thwarting him at each turn. Something is not right.
Under attack, both
in the supernatural and natural worlds, Thomas must reach back into the secret
layers of his past to find the strength and wisdom to fight his battles. When
the mist clears, who will stand with him?
