Review: Heart of Mist

Title: Heart of Mist (The Oremere Chronicles #1)
Author: Helen Scheuerer
Publisher: Talem Press
Release Date: August 30th, 2017

In a realm where toxic mist sweeps the lands and magic is forbidden, all Bleak wants is a cure for her power.

Still grieving the death of her guardian and dangerously self-medicating with alcohol, Bleak is snatched from her home by the Commander of the King’s Army, and summoned to the capital.

But the king isn’t the only one interested in Bleak’s powers.

The leader of an infamous society of warriors, the Valia Kindred, lays claim to her as well, and Bleak finds herself in the middle of a much bigger battle than she anticipated.

Heart of Mist is the gripping first book in The Oremere Chronicles, a fantasy series of epic proportions.


Welp let's jump right into this! We meet Bleak, yes that is her name, and yes she is quite bleak...But she is also a spitfire! Boy could she dish it, I just wish she protected herself more....but ehh Bleak is an alcoholic in every sense of the word, she spends her days looking for coin to buy alcohol to help curb her misery....Misery you say! Welp Bleak can hear peoples thoughts! Yes she like telepathic...She is living in a world that doesn't allow magic but she has magic...

Bleak also has her BFF4Life even if she refuses to see that he only wants the best for her. How does Bleak get her coin? Well those wonderful tourists that come to town, and spend their money on frivolous things, she helps herself to their coin bags/pouches, and or pick pockets just depends on her mood. Bleak eventually comes into her own, once she realizes that it's okay being different. I honestly appreciated Bleak the most, she is the protagonist, and she is jaded but she has every right to be. Bleak had real issues, and dealt with them accordingly, seeing her go through withdrawal from her addiction was tough. But she was able to overcome her addiction, and learn to deal with being a magical entity but not really an entity...At this point you should just read the book...My rating 4/5 

(A big thank you to the author. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
