Praise for THE KILLING FOG
“Wheeler (Broken Veil) opens the Grave Kingdom series with this winding tale of valor and sacrifice, set in a realm where using magic summons a heavy fog that kills every living thing it touches. [T]he threat of the fog looming in the background adds atmosphere and tension…This excellent introduction to the prolific Wheeler’s work will appeal to fans of Asian-influenced fantasy.” —Publishers Weekly

The Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Kingfountain series conjures an epic, adventurous world of ancient myth and magic as a young woman’s battle with infinite evil begins.

Survivor of a combat school, the orphaned Bingmei belongs to a band of mercenaries employed by a local ruler. Now the nobleman, and collector of rare artifacts, has entrusted Bingmei and the skilled team with a treacherous assignment: brave the wilderness’s dangers to retrieve the treasures of a lost palace buried in a glacier valley. But upsetting its tombs has a price.

Echion, emperor of the Grave Kingdom, ruler of darkness, Dragon of Night, has long been entombed. Now Bingmei has unwittingly awakened him and is answerable to a legendary prophecy. Destroying the dark lord before he reclaims the kingdoms of the living is her inherited mission. Killing Bingmei before she fulfills it is Echion’s.

Thrust unprepared into the role of savior, urged on by a renegade prince, and possessing a magic that is her destiny, Bingmei knows what she must do. But what must she risk to honor her ancestors? Bingmei’s fateful choice is one that neither her friends nor her enemies can foretell, as Echion’s dark war for control unfolds.

MY REVIEW
I received a copy of The Killing Fog for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation for this review.

Ever since I can remember, it has been a father/daughter thing to watch poorly written monster movies and Asian fighting movies. I have a deep love for Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and others I can’t remember off the top of my head. So, when The Killing Fog crossed my inbox, I was both excited and intrigued. What is this Eastern fantasy? Is it like Across the Nightingale Floor?

No. It is something more. From the moment I started reading, I was pulled into my dad’s living room, watching an Asian fighting epic of a heroine thrust into battle that she never intended.

Jeff Wheeler’s writing is well done, pulling you into the world. I found myself enthralled with not only our lead, Bingmei, but with the supporting cast. The world building is ancient, magical, and holds something that is Eastern in inspiration, but possibly more than that.

For the fantasy fan, this is definitely a book to read. I now want to read more from Jeff Wheeler.

Final Rating: 4/5
