You guys... Just putting it out there, this is one of my new all time favourite series, and for a few days it's on Amazon for 99p or 99C (I believe!) it's definitely worth checking it out! :)

5 Stars!

No spoilers in this rapid review of War of Mist. I really liked it and give it 4.5 stars. This is how you wrap up an epic fantasy series! I’ve been a little let down by several series finales this past year—even from authors like Sarah J. Maas—but Scheuerer didn’t disappoint.

I find it’s hard to summarize a finale in a fantasy series. My synopsis always seems to go something like this: Do you know what we’ve been building toward in the previous books? Well, now it’s happening! All the characters

OMG, THE FEELS, you guys. I didn't want it to end... I think there's something in my eye 😭
I LOVED this book, all this trilogy is beautiful and it really needs and deserves more recognition, the author has done an extraordinary job with the creation of characters, world, and magic system. If you like high-fantasy, this trilogy needs to be on your list, IT'S FANTASTIC!!


4.5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

I am so happy that I discovered this series! These books have everything that I love in Fantasy, Magnificent world-building, easy to follow but intriguing magic system, fast paced and action packed plot, an endearing ensemble of cast and the ultimate good vs evil fight to death. I haven't written reviews for the first two books in the series, so I'll just quickly recap my thoughts on both the books before writing down my thoughts on this final book of the series, War of Mist.

If I had to name my top five under appreciated series, these books would definitely be included. It has everything you could ever want in a fantasy book; enchanting magic, badass warrior ladies, complex characters, gorgeous writing and stunning world building.

Still not sold? Well, one of the main characters is a recovering alcoholic who rides a panther.

(Got you.)

Helen is one of those magical authors whose writing style and world building are so distinct and comforting that it’s just like snugg
This is it. Everything is coming to a head and Bleak is at the heart of things, her heritage revealed, her destiny engraved somewhere beneath the lies, the treachery and her quest to find the one thing that can save the world. Can she do it? Will she be in time? Can she stay out of the clutches of the wicked Queen Ines?

Helen Scheuerer’s final installment of the Oremere Chronicles trilogy, WAR OF MIST hits the ground running, tensions high and a clock that is ticking…the last stand is coming.

Bleak and friends gather for the final battle against the evil witch Ines who has caused chaos throughout the land. As they prepare for war, will they finally be able to defeat her or die trying? Read on and find out for yourself.

This was an amazing conclusion to the oremire chronicles trilogy. If you enjoy action-packed fantasy series with great story and characters, definitely check this trilogy out on Amazon and wherever ebooks are sold online.

If you read the entire books in this series like me, you should know by now that Helen Scheuerer forged a fantasy world that was entirely reflected to our real setting where everyone is fighting their own battle and people are either guided by their moral compass or blinded by their greed, personal interest and hunger for power. Her books are not a Disney princess movie where everyone gets a happy ending and live happily ever after.

I received an advanced e-ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. 

Where do I even begin?! To say that this series has become one of my all-time favourites is an understatement. Helen has created a trilogy so unique, so beautiful and so utterly heartbreaking. War of Mist is the epic conclusion to an explosive trilogy, it will leave you hanging off every word and desperately flipping the pages.

This book was utterly fantastic. If I rated the entire series, I would be a 4.5* (only because the beginning of the first book dragged a bit) but since this is a solo review for the finale book, I’m happy to say that this was a solid 5* read.

My favorite aspect would definitely be the characters – they were absolutely exceptional, probably some of the best I have ever read. And you know the characters are amazing and incredibly

Between 2.5 and 3

I have to admit, I am a bit disappointed by this conclusion to the Oremere series. If I didn't enjoy these characters so much, I think this would be a 2 star from me? It took me ages to get through, dragged a lot despite the action, and the plot felt convenient. The first two books really excelled at proper pacing and not giving too much away too soon, but in this book it really seemed like all the wind went out of the sails and the tension dissolved. The stakes couldn't have be
After writing two brilliant, page-turning books, I was a little bit worried about how Helen was going to raise the bar even higher. But all my worries were unnecessary because War of Mist definitely delivered with nail-biting tension, solid writing, and a very satisfying conclusion. Seriously, just pick this series up.

(Disclaimer: I received this book from the author. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

The Oremere Chronicles have been one of my absolute favorite underrated fantasy series ever. Talk about morally grey characters who will wring every piece of emotion from your heart. And War of Mist is a stunning series finale! War of Mist is one of those series finales that makes not only your breath quicken, but reminds you of why you loved the series in the first place.

I was so eager to get my hand on WAR OF MIST after finishing REIGN OF MIST, I couldn't wait for long after finishing the latter one.

And WAR OF MIST is soooooo good!!

The prologue! OMG, the prologue is so so good!! I love it so much!! (You'll find an excerpt of the prologue down below 😉😉) Ms. Scheuerer has taken the story to a whole new action-packed, tension-filled level, full of continuously rising stakes and gut-wrenching plot twists. I love t

War of Mist is the finale to The Omerere Chronicles, and I can wholeheartedly say I loved every moment of it. I wasn’t sure how the third novel would turn out after reading the last two and felt as though I enjoyed it but didn’t fall in love

I received a digital copy of this via my participation in a blog tour organized by Shealea from ShutUpShealea. Thank you, Helen Scheuerer and Talem Press!

War of Mist is the third and final installment in the Oremere Chronicles by Helen Scheuerer. I have loved and given 5 stars to the first book – Heart of Mist, as well as the second – Reign of Mist.

What a journey. What a series. What an author. 👏

Not since the Lord of the Rings have I been this invested in a group of merry misfits and their journey across the continents! Our drunk pickpocket has certainly come a long way since Heart of Mist, and it is her physical and emotional journey that is one of the many things that has made this series so fantastic.

War of Mist was a worthy conclusion to what has been an epic series. From the breathtaking world building, the badass women, the characte

I received a free copy of this book from the author for review.

I found War of Mist faster paced with more emphasis on action than the earlier books in the trilogy. Sometimes it seemed as if the characters were racing toward their separate destinies. The faster pace is dictated by the story that's being told in this novel. It's a war for the souls of the peoples in Scheuerer's world. It would be difficult for the stakes to be any higher.

I stated this series coming to the end of 2019 and as soon as i started it i was desperate to read more. The characters in these books really stay with you. They’re written well and develop all the way through the books, the growth and experiences they undertake are felt by the person reading it. Now that i’ve finished this series i’m devastated but also feel very fulfilled and satisfied by how it ended. I truly would recommend this series to anyone who loves fan

It did take me ages to finish this series, but that doesn't mean I didn't love it. It's certainly an epic drama, with scenes I could picture in my head as part of a TV show or movie series. It's full of adventure, magic, drama, sadness, and kick-arse characters. I like the fact that there are so many strong female characters in the books - of course there are plenty of strong male characters too, but it's great to have a balance and a focus on women's points of view for much of the story.
