I was incredibly excited, going into this book. I enjoyed its predecessor Heart of Mist so much and I had high hopes for the sequel. It delivered from the VERY FIRST PAGE and NEVER stopped!
I expected more character development and exploration of the world that Helen Scheuerer so expertly brought to life in the first novel and she far exceeded every expectation. She introduced new characters, existing ones matured and gained more depth in beautifully realistic ways. The worlds were so rich and vivid. I truly adore Helen’s writing and the flow is wonderful. My only gripe is that the third novel in the series isn’t out as I write this review for me to throw myself into so I must wait to find out the conclusion to so many twists and turns for characters and broader storylines.
For anyone looking into The Oremere Chronicles, I also highly recommend joining Helen Scheuerer’s mailing list on her site, she sends out free mini prequels that give you a bit more of an in-depth look into some of the main characters and their personality or early history. It’s not necessary and you can go straight on to read the main books and they don’t ruin any plot points but they are really sweet. It was specially lovely seeing more of Bleak and Seniors relationship and also Bleak and Bren and how they all lived prior to the events in Heart of Mist.
Happy reading x
