I have read many fantasy books by many many authors in my life so far but this is by far one of my favourite reads so far. I loved the realness as well as the complexities of all different characters. I even felt a weight in my throat when a character that I didn’t like throughout the series spoke to fi of how he was tired of fighting after the war. Yeah, this is not really a spoiler SPOILER. 🤓
Also the whole thing just left me feeling appreciative of the books, the story, heck even my life in general and I even felt happy to be alive and reading the book. So in case I wasn’t clear, I really really liked the book and this whole series. This author is now on my tbr list when any of her new works come up.
Like the previous two books I was drawn right in the lives and world that Helen has created in the Oremere Chronicles. It was easy to get lost in the story and discover that time was slipping right away.
Overall Helen has created a series filled with action, adventure and intrigue. If you are unsure about reading this series I highly recommend doing so, you will not be disappointed, well until the series comes to a end and leaves you wanting more!
Thanks Helen for giving me this series to review. I am so glad that I didn't miss out on this incredible read.

Going into this I have to say I was slightly scared… I mean the Title alone, War of Mist, you’ve got to know there’s going to be a war, and what about all of the characters that I love so much?! Not only that but I’ve already rated the first two books 5 stars, my expectations were high, they were not let down what so ever!
The story kicks off four weeks after the ending of Reign of Mist and things are getting pretty tough, there’s curfews in place, people are missing and others are being branded with the face of Ines. There is a warrant out for Bleak and we’re following the stories of a variety of characters. Once again Swinton’s was my favourite and he was travelling with my other main man Fi, Princess Olena and Prince Nazuri. Bleak and Casimir are on the hunt for a certain someone and then we get to see Dash as well coming to terms with what has happened to him.
Within this we see characters come into their own more and more and fitting into certain areas whether it’s training, fighting, giving some form of guidance, each person is used to an advantage and it was perfect seeing how they all came together to work as team.
”You’ll remember those things for the rest of your life, but don’t let them define you.”
Just a note, I’m only going over a few and these are the ones that I can’t not say something about!
Lets start off with Bleak, one thing that I found INCREDIBLE with part of her story is that she has an issue with alcohol, and it isn’t dismissed at all throughout the book. She recognises it and has such a supportive network that they’re able to help her. I’m mentioning this, because in past books/series something will crop up and it’s forgotten about but this isn’t and it’s an important situation to address. Moving on from that, you really see her come into her own, her powers are going from strength to strength and the friendships she curates throughout is just incredible to see how much she has developed. She’s put into some difficult situations (I’m not going to say what, because your girl here, isn’t one to post spoilers) and the way in which it is handled I was just amazed by how much she has grown. She may not of been the most likeable character, but you can’t help but respect her and I’ve grown to like her SO much more than I thought I ever would!
”I told you once, old friend; my place has always been, and always will be, by your side”
I’m sorry but I cannot, not mention my boys Swinton and Fi together. My god. MY GOD. I will tell you now, that from the books I have read this year these two are ones that I’m always going to remember. They are hands down my favourites. We have Fi who literally calls everyone friend, and has this presence that just seems so calming, but at the same time it’s someone you just don’t want to cross! His loyalty is unwavering and I just love him so much! Then we have Swinton. Where do I even begin with him. My hero of the trilogy. He is no where near perfect he definitely has his flaws, but the way in which he manages them, and starts to realise I was just an absolute mess with it all. I think what makes his character so compelling is just how much you learn about him, why he acts in certain ways, his back story, his fierce protectiveness. Now this friendship. YOU GUYS! Swinton isn’t one for relaxing, comes across maybe slightly uptight, but with Fi and his reassurance they really are the perfect team.
Then we have Sahara and Henri the two warrior sisters, the relationship between the two is slightly strained, however you see it grow a little more each day. Once again both characters are super supportive towards Bleak and don’t even ask questions they’re just there. They’re super strong willed! It was interesting seeing them work as a team, and seeing them sometimes vulnerable. One instance for example is when Henri thinks Sahara has left, it’s what follows on from there. My little heart couldn’t take it, and once again no spoilers… but something happened and just it was so sweet to see.
Finally we have Dash, Olena and Nazuri, I don’t know what it was about them, but I really really enjoyed all three of these characters. Dash had to really come into his own this time around. You could see that he wasn’t entirely comfortable with his new situation, and he had to come to terms with that. You could see throughout that he was gaining more and more respect, and not only that but you saw more of his visions and it was pretty endearing to see! Olena was INCREDIBLE. Even though she may be blind, her courage and strength was just amazing to see. Her interaction with other characters was a fresh of breath air. I thoroughly enjoyed her story Arc. Then finally Nazuri, I loved that he saw Olena as an equal and he didn’t undermine or underestimate her. He was protective but not forceful and just an all round lovely character.

What I liked?
- It was dark, like things had happened and it didn’t go back to all happiness it still remained true to what had happened.
- Therese and Swinton, I just wanted them to be happy from the get go
- Trying to figure out what Marietta meant when she made a little speech…
- Dash carrying the fabric with the sigil, my little heart!
- Cook… Recipes I will say no more
- The process of the black whirls going throughout, there was already an uproar on what was going to happen and then this added spanner in the works! I was like oooh GURL
- Baron. When you know, you know.
- Masked Warriors, Vipers, Action!
- The realisation of something, I CAN’T I STILL CAN’T
- Sahra in her Valaria gear, who knew I needed that so much?
- Taking over bodyguards (mwahahahahaha!)
- All things LYSE!
- The return of the battle axes!
- Highest Honour, Pins, Knight of the Realm (I’m not crying, you’re crying!)
- Just a satisfying ending
- All of the Teerah Panthers
I just wanted to add, I have a whole list of things that I loved, but once again all major spoilers!
What I didn’t like?
- The amount I cried, literally once I started it was never ending!
Overall I have hands down loved my time reading this series, I can’t believe at the start of the year I started off reading Heart of Mist and Reign of Mist eagerly awaiting War of Mist. This is by far one of my favourite series, it has brought me so much joy (and some very real heartache!) I genuinely would urge other people to read this series because it’s a complete and utter whirlwind!
