When Shealea @ Caffiene Book Tours posted a sign up for a blog tour for War Of Mist by Helen Scheuerer, I knew I had to sign up. I had seen Shealea raving about these books for so long, and here was an opportunity to maybe get a chance to read them? SOLD.
It was so sweet of Helen to reach out and send the copies of the entire trilogy my way, as I had not had a chance to read them before. And once I started reading, well. If you’ve seen my Twitter and my earlier reviews, you know I couldn’t stop.
The launch post for the tour can be found here. Be sure to check out these awesome bloggers!

War is here.
Toxic mist drives all life to the brink of destruction and the conqueror queen, Ines, has her talons in the kings of the realm.
Bleak, having discovered her true heritage, must now scour the lands for the one thing that might save them all.
But the search is a treacherous one – and it will push her to the very limits of endurance.
Amidst secrets, lies and the intricacies of battle, Bleak and her companions learn just how far they’ll go for the ones they love. But will it be enough?
As deadly forces grapple for power across the continents, families, friends and allies unite to take one final stand.
Explosive revelations, heart-wrenching betrayals and breathtaking magic soar in the epic conclusion to Helen Scheuerer’s bestselling trilogy, The Oremere Chronicles.
I loved these books so much. They were so well-written and so wonderful, I couldn’t help but make a few graphics!

After writing literary fiction for a number of years, Helen Scheuerer was inspired to return to her childhood love of fantasy thanks to novels like Throne of Glass, The Queen’s Poisoner, and The Queen of the Tearling.
Helen is also the Founding Editor of Writer’s Edit, an online learning platform for emerging writers. In its first year, Writer’s Edit reached thousands of new authors, and soon became its own small press, with Helen overseeing the production and publication of three creative writing anthologies. It’s now one of the largest writing websites in the world.
Helen now lives by the mountains of New Zealand and writes full time. She has many more books planned for the future.

I received this copy in exchange for an honest review from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you Helen and Caffeine Book Tours!
I’ve been sitting on this review for over a month now. It took me a while to sit down and actually write it, but I am so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this blog tour. This entire story has been such a treat to read.
The conclusion of this fantastic trilogy continues with following our four main POVs – Bleak, whose past affects the war more than anyone had probably expected; Henri, whose strength she is finding is bolstered by learning to trust the people around her; Swinton, who cannot keep lying to himself and finds himself better for it; and Dash, whose entire world has turned upside down, but he still makes the best of it.
Writing this review with no spoilers has been difficult, but! I’m going to try.
I’ve raved about the world building on Twitter, and a little in the previous reviews, and it carries on into this conclusion. All my questions from the previous books are answered. The world is fully realised, and everything comes to a head.
And the stakes! Are so palpable! For all the characters! Not just the main four whose points we are seeing the story unfold in, but all the characters we see them interact with face high stakes that made me genuinely worried for their survival.
There were a few twists that definitely did not see coming and that left me reeling! As a whole, this was a breathtaking and action-packed read, and I am a little bit bummed there will be nothing more in this world.
