Survivor of a combat school, the orphaned Bingmei belongs to a band of mercenaries employed by a local ruler...
How can such an awful predicament seem so serene? Strange. I strolled through Jeff Wheeler's pages of THE KILLING FOG centered, enlightened, while the forces of this unknown land released horrible terrors. I can't help, but go back to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. That beauty stricken time frame with hardships, determination, honor, and the unforeseen deaths.

Thanks to NetGalley and 47North for letting me read and review this incredible story. I'm already anxiously awaiting the next book in this series! I love and have read most of Jeff Wheeler's works and he never disappoints with his stories full of adventure, intrigue, romance, life lessons and so much more. It's always one wild rollercoaster ride with my emotions when I read one of his books, but I always learn or take away something and enjoy the stories immensely.
I always find myself easi

Jeff wheeler, The Killing Fog” is the first installment in, The Grave Kingdom trilogy.
An incredible read from Wheeler, It was fast-paced, action packed, the world building and characters were absolutely amazing.
The story was fascinating, engaging, and a definite page-turner with perfect pacing and creative story development. The author keeps you totally invested in this intense epic fantasy. Enjoyable storyline that had me glued to the pages.

Wheeler creates an exceptional atmospheric world that catapult reader into this phenomenal adventures fantasy world that he has created. Rich magical elements an stellar cast of characters. The main protagonist Bingmei, is by far one of my favorite female leader characters this year. With non stop adventure and intrigue and just the right amount of romance made this riveting book exceptional.

I will definitely recommend this book to my family and friends, and I am anxiously waiting on the next book in series

Atmospheric, riveting and intensely entertaining! Another great success for the fantasy author

"Oh, yay! a new Jeff Wheeler book!" This is my reaction every single time Mr. Wheeler has a new book - and this one does not disappoint. The Grave Kingdom series is a complete departure from his prior stories of Kingfountain, etc. But the main elements are there - a young girl, destined to do great things to save her country, battles through what seems like unbeatable odds to win the day. Clean and moral, but full of wisdom, clever characters, evil villains, and wonderful plots of adventure and ...more

I read Jeff Wheeler's Harbinger series and really enjoyed it. That was the reason I chose to read the Killing Fog. As with the Harbinger series, I very much enjoyed what I read. The story was very intense and the characters were unique and well built. My only problem is the story started a little too fast and didn't have enough back story at times. I felt like I was either learning as I read or had to piece together why we were where we were at certain times. I'm sure if you read more of Wheeler ...more

Jeff Wheeler is one of the best authors of fantasy on the scene. This current novel “The Killing Fog” is the first book in The Grave Kingdom trilogy. It was fast-paced, action packed, the world building and characters were amazing, and there is no doubt this will be a success. Wheeler does what many authors cannot do: create a world as real and tangible as the world we live. Another great success for the fantasy genre.

Thank you NetGalley and 47North for the free e-arc.

DNF 26%: Unfortunately, I just wasn’t able to get into this story. The main character, Bingmei, was cool and unique. I liked her determination and power. However, the story progressed very slowly. I read 1/4 of the book and felt like nothing was happening. I don’t know. There were definitely cool concepts, it just wasn’t for me.

I've been a fan of Mr. Wherefore a long time, so I was excited that he was coming out with a new series. This doesn't disappoint, it still has what I enjoyed about the previous series with great new characters.
