About Fortress of Mist

  “Full of surprising twists, shocking betrays, and baffl ing mysteries. But at it’s heart it’s about courage, wisdom, and hope…”
—Robert Liparulo, author of The 13th Tribe, The Judgment Stone, and the Dreamhouse Kings series

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

 
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?

Praise

Praise for Fortress of Mist

“Sigmund Brouwer’s masterful storytelling and eye for detail turn Fortress of Mist into a grand—and harrowing—adventure for every reader. You’ll feel the grime of castle dungeons, the sting of sword blades, and the elation of victory. It’s a story full of surprising twists, shocking betrayals, and baffling mysteries. But at its heart, this book is about courage, wisdom, and hope—and losing yourself in a fabulous story well told.”
—Robert Liparulo, author of The 13th Tribe, The Judgment Stone, and the Dreamhouse Kings series

“Sigmund Brouwer spins an exciting story with Fortress of Mist, full of classic elements and clever twists. His style is reminiscent of the wonderful Lloyd Alexander, and I felt both comfortably familiar with the unfolding story and pleasantly surprised by new plot developments. As the young orphan hero struggling to establish himself as ruler in a
world of courtly intrigues and dangerous Druids, Thomas will appeal to boys and girls, young and old. Brouwer keeps us guessing, and I was particularly interested by his use of scientific “magic.” An engaging read that will leave readers eager to pick up the next volume.”
—Anne Elisabeth Stengl, author of the award-winning Tales of Goldstone Wood series

“From the first line, readers will be hooked into this page-turning adventure. An engaging and compelling read.”
—Debbie Viguié, author of Kiss of Death

Sigmund Brouwer's Fortress of Mist is so much cooler than Azkaban prison. Whereas Azkaban is a massive fortress built to keep criminals locked away, Magnus' fortress is built as the citadel for a secret society, and as such it is rife with secret passageways, spyholes, friends, and traitors. Even though Thomas has managed to achieve his objective of conquering Magnus, he discovers that keeping the citadel will be perhaps even more difficult...

This is book 2 of Sigmund Brouwer's "Merlin's Immortals' series. Magnus is a kingdom under attack by the Druids and defended by men like Thomas.

This book was captivating and pulled me right into the story. It starts where the prier book (Orphan King) ended. You will find yourself pulled into the story just as if you were the characters yourself. Very well written and an amazing story line!
