Fortress of Mist - Sigmund Brouwer

Fortress of Mist (Merlin's Immortals, #2)Fortress of Mist by Sigmund Brouwer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The recently conquered kingdom of Magnus is desperately coveted by the Druids and the dark powers of the symbol and Thomas, the new king of Magnus knows they will not stop until the Kingdom of Magnus is under Druid control once again.
Able to withstand siege for 10 years, the walls of Magnus seem impenetrable from the outside but inside it is but a fortress of mist, nothing is as it seems. The very walls are spies and people once thought dead are now visiting the living. The people are demanding answers and Thomas has none.
Who can he trust? What is real and what is merely an illusion?
For a Young Adult book the book this is an extraordinarily written story. The only reason I only give it 4 stars is because there was really nothing new or fresh but there was still enough action to keep you reading.
I would recommend this book for ages 12 and up. It would be a great book for young teens.

So Shines the NightSo Shines the Night by Tracy L. Higley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Daria has been running from evil for as long as she can remember but it seems to pursue her everywhere she runs. Then she meets Lucas, a man haunted by a dark and mysterious past. Daria is determined to help him but finds that she to is facing dark and oppressive spirits as well. Then she meets a man named Paul who claims there is a power higher than all the gods she fears and more powerful than  the evil that haunts her every step. But with people being possessed by strange powers and sorcerers watching her every move she doesn't know who she can trust or what she should believe.
If I had to describe this book in one word it would be.. BEAUTIFUL! The cover is beautiful, the story is beautiful, and the message is beautiful!
This is the first book I have read by Tracy L. Higley but it most certainly won't be the last!
I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone! On a scale of 1 to 10 this book is a 12!!!!
