My Rating: 5 STARS
War of Mist was one of my most anticipated books of the year and I’m glad it lived up to my expectations, I loved it. The Oremere Chronicles is a series I quickly fell in love with when I read the first and second book last year, it’s such an amazing fantasy trilogy.
The thing I love the most about this trilogy is probably the character arcs. The journey that every character has in this trilogy feels so well developed that you truly feel the journey they’ve been on and in War of Mist you feel it so much more because this is the last book.
War of Mist, as you can tell by the title, focuses on war. There are strategy talks and intense battles and I loved how action packed and on the edge of your seat that made you feel. And even though I was afraid for the characters I also loved how everything linked up so intricately, it felt like such engrossing storytelling.
I liked how the war in this book made all the characters come together. I loved reading about all the different connections. Each character has been on their own journey and War of Mist really shows how much they’ve all changed and grew as characters, it was great to read.
One of my favourite things about War of Mist was seeing how far Bleak and Henri have come and seeing how much they truly care for each other. The character bonds in these books feel so important and pivotal to the overall story. I loved how the characters harked back to the first book and reflected on how far they’ve came, like Henri and Bleak meeting for the first time and Bleak and Sahara meeting for the first time, it made everything feel more emotional.
Overall War of Mist (just like the previous books) was full of twists and turns and amazing character development. I loved War of Mist and I think it’s an epic conclusion to an epic trilogy.
