    1 thought on “Heart of Mist

    1. Alcohol deadens the sounds of the voices she hears and the things she sees in her mind. Bleak lost everything in her life twice and now she is on her own, with no one to lean on, no one trust with her secret, a secret that could get her killed, a secret others want for the power it will give them and no way to find a cure that could save her life, her sanity and even her future.She grew up in a land where magic is forbidden and her kind, the Ashai were feared, hated and put to death in “The Mi [...]

    2. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.I’m gonna start this review by saying that it’s not the book, it’s me. I think I’ve read too many fantasy books one after another that my expectations are set very high—a little too high, in fact.Heart of Mist had an interesting premise. The reading experience is hard to explain because while the descriptions in the book were beautiful, I found the plot going much faster than I anticipated. The world building was intertwin [...]

    3. You can find this review and more at The Wanderlust Reader!4.5/5 STARS*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review*YOU GUYS. I don’t know if there are enough words in the human language to express how much I loved Heart of Mist but I shall give it a try.I had a feeling that I was going to thoroughly enjoy this book even before I read it because I am a sucker for forbidden magic and secrets and anyone who goes by the name ‘Bleak’. I mean, who wouldn’ [...]

    4. I received an e-ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.Where do I even begin with this review!? Heart of Mist completely blew away the expectations I had for this novel. On receiving the synopsis from Scheuerer, I thought - okay a fantasy novel, I’m most likely going to like it, it’ll probably have some romantic plot line which will have me hook line and sinker… but I was not prepared for how much I would fall in love and for how differe [...]

    5. I feel like this book is going to be getting lots of attention - it definitely deserves it! There were points where I was reminded of Throne of Glass, Truthwitch and Frostblood; Helen Scheuerer creates such a fantastically detailed world that draws you in effortlessly. In a world where magic is forbidden, Bleak has a secret; she can hear people's thoughts. She desperately hides this fact with alcohol, and does everything in her power to keep her best friend in the dark regarding her ability. Des [...]

    6. This was a gem of a book and I need the next one! I can't wait to see how this continues, I'll have a review up shortly, too! Will link it when it's written!REVIEW! (Spoiler free.)Helen approached me, asking if I’d like to read Heart of Mist, and as soon as I read the synopsis I KNEW I WANTED THE WHOLE THING. I loved Bleak. She’s so sarcastic, vulnerable and flawed. It’s not often you see a protagonist in YA drinking so profusely, so the way that shaped her character was incredibly unique [...]

    7. I received an e-ARC of this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.No spoilers in this rapid review. I give it 4.5 stars. I have read many good novels by debut authors recently, but Heart of Mist is easily the best one. In fact, it’s the best series opener I’ve read by any author in quite some time. It does what any great initial book needs to do: introduces complex characters, builds an intriguing world, and provides many mysteries, some solved in this book and some to be so [...]

    8. With Heart of Mist, I don’t think I can find enough words to fully and adequately express how much I loved it. To say that I found this novel to be delightful and refreshing is a huge understatement. I was so immersed in its story that every now and then, I questioned if I was actually under a spell. In fact, I’m almost absolutely certain that the copy Helen sent me was enchanted with the strongest and most potent of Valian herbs. Heart of Mist is simply, purely, wonderfully magic.Bleak’s [...]

    9. Before I start writing coherently, I must to say: I NEED THE NEXT BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!! Okay, ufff, I just needed to get that out there.I do admit that when I started reading Heart of Mist I thought that it was yet another YA Fantasy novel with nothing new to offer. There were several similarities with Throne of Glass and I felt like I had read all that before already. Well, I was wrong, very wrong! Yes, there are certain aspects of Heart of Mist that have already been seen on other YA books featur [...]

    10. This story takes hold of you from the very beginning. It’s a YA fantasy that features the most unlikely of main characters. Bleak is a drunk who is known to be one of the town’s most renowned gutter rats. She’s taken one day to be presented to the king, or to her death if you were to ask her, but on the way she encounters a group of warrior women known as the legendary Kindred. Only then is her world turned upside down and she becomes aware of how different she really is.Only a few of the [...]

    11. Originally reviewed at Fictional FatesThis was an ARC provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to Helen Scheuerer for giving me the opportunity to review this book. If you wanted to read some prequel stories to Heart of Mist, click here! Heart of Mist was outstanding all in all.It's plot, characters, and world building was fantastic. When you have a story you don't want to let go of, it's quite hard to say goodbye to it. This is exactly the impression Heart of Mi [...]

    12. **SPOILER FREE **Summary:From the very first chapter I knew Heart of Mist was going to whisk me away to my dream fantasy world. I love books I can fully escape into, and Heart of Mist certainly gave me that. Not only was the worldbuillding and magic system thoughtful and interesting, but the characters (both major and minor) were well-rounded and felt real. They were going through realistic emotions that I could relate to, and they made me think about important themes (like alcoholism, family, i [...]

    13. ✮ Read this review and more like it on The Last Page ✮The plot at its base has some familiar fantasy elements: a main character with unknown powers, a medieval high fantasy setting with kings and knights, political rivalries, forbidden magic, class tension, corrupt royalty, and of course rampant abuse towards women. As the story unfolds Heart of Mist adds some refreshing twists to the classic hero’s journey.The thing that made this book really stand out to me was how the plot tackles vario [...]

    14. I was pleasantly surprised how different this book ended up being from my initial look at the synopsis. Don’t get me wrong, I was pulled in from the beginning. To explain my surprise – a lot of YA fantasy lately (to me and this my opinion) has always had some sort of love interest or a little romance. Not every book but a decent chunk of them. Now, in Heart of Mist, it hinted at bits and pieces of romance but there’s no definite road that I felt was shown. This book was refreshing in it fe [...]

    15. Also posted at Library of Colors.I want this to be as spoiler free as possible, so let’s just sum up the things that I absolutely loved about this book.Characters. Helen’s characters are deep - I felt like I was really able to get to know them, leaving me loving most but also having strong feelings about others. Fiore <3 was a character I loved getting to know, and of course Bleak was someone I didn’t expect to connect with so much. The way Helen writes about addiction and drowning away [...]

    16. This unique, character-driven fantasy novel really gripped me. Helen's training in literary fiction shined through this debut, and part of what made this book strong was its emphasis on the characters' emotional development throughout the novel. There's action and adventure, but I always got the feeling that this novel is about so much more than just kingdoms rivaling each other. The Valians are the female-led battle society that make this story so fascinating!In the novel, we have this mysterio [...]

    17. In the realm of Ellest a toxic and dangerous mist swarms across the land. Here, magic is forbidden, and those who practice it are disappearing. Drinking to dampen her emerging and unwanted powers, and to forget a turbulent past, nineteen year old Bleak plans to remain firmly out of the firing line. But when the King’s men set their sights on her, she finds herself caught in the middle of a battle for power between the female warriors of the Valia and the King, corrupted by a mysterious force. [...]

    18. I already can't wait to reread this book as soon as I can get my hands on a print copy! The inside is as gorgeous as the outside. The writing is beautiful and the story is exciting, and I loved how addictive it was. Now to wait for Book Two!

    19. I love a good fantasy adventure and this series-starter by debut author Hellen Scheuerer didn't disappoint. If you're a YA fantasy fan, add it to your "Want to Read" list now. :)For our full BSR review of Heart of Mist, click here

    20. I received this e-arc from Helen herself in exchange for an honest review. Please note that all thoughts are my own and have not been influenced in any way. Also, thank you to Helen for giving me the opportunity to read this amazing novel.I’m going to be honest, when I started reading this, I had no idea what it was going to be about because I had forgotten the synopsis after picking it a month after Helen contacted me. I was also weary of the fantasy genre because I had recently been disappoi [...]

    21. In a strong debut from YA author Helen Scheuerer, Heart of Mist fills the classic fantasy epic with a cast of wonderfully gritty characters and themes relevant to the modern-day reader. Beautifully written, the vibrant and detailed world of Ellest and its surrounds promise to be a favourite amongst young and old readers alike.

    22. I did not know what to expect when I started this book, but after reading the prologue, I knew I was in for a crazy journey filled with diverse characters and mysteries galore. First of all, the main character, Bleak, was a character that I immediately connected to. In the beginning, we see her at one of the lowest points in her life and my heart broke for her, but she had a resilience about her that I loved as well. She isn't the type of whiny and incapable main character who waits for things t [...]
