    Destiny, faith and choiceA great book and story with plenty to come This book is a perfect blend of Chinese culture, fantasy and Martial Arts.The book starts as a revenge story, with martial arts and a bit of magic I like the martial arts fight in the book are great I really wise Martial Arts masters That is what I think is missing from martial art teaching today I have trained with very good practitioners of hard arts who were great coaches but not the best people to get life advice from.A Destiny, faith and choiceA great book and story with plenty to come This book is a perfect blend of Chinese culture, fantasy and Martial Arts.The book starts as a revenge story, with martial arts and a bit of magic I like the martial arts fight in the book are great I really wise Martial Arts masters That is what I think is missing from martial art teaching today I have trained with very good practitioners of hard arts who were great coaches but not the best people to get life advice from.A group of Martial Arts adventures have been charged with finding a lost Kingdom for its riches however what they do is unleash something long buried into their world.I really enjoyed watching the main character grow From someone only looking for revenge to a true warrior I also like the fact that she is conflicted about her destiny It makes her characterreal and relatable.This is a great book for anyone who who loves old school Kung Fu movies The story of the book gets better as the book goes along The action is top notch, the story is good and I can t wait for the next book

    The Killing Fog is the first in a new Asian inspired fantasy series by Jeff Wheeler I m ashamed to say I have seen his other works, but never got around to reading them even though they have been on my list for a while So, I am very happy to be able to read this first one in his new series.One of the main features fantasy readers always look to when attempting to decide if a book is right for them is in the world building In The Killing Fog, the world has associations called ensigns , which a The Killing Fog is the first in a new Asian inspired fantasy series by Jeff Wheeler I m ashamed to say I have seen his other works, but never got around to reading them even though they have been on my list for a while So, I am very happy to be able to read this first one in his new series.One of the main features fantasy readers always look to when attempting to decide if a book is right for them is in the world building In The Killing Fog, the world has associations called ensigns , which are groups of trained warriors that can be hired for a variety of reasons Magic is also in the world, but is never used as a first resort Bingmei is part of an Kunmia s ensign, an honorable ensign The story truly begins when King Budei, one of their patrons, hires them to find an artifact at the Summer Palace With fear of giving too much away the main story takes the reader to two different kingdoms as well as the Summer Palace, which is also called Fusang.Although, I m still not quite sure what to make of Bingmei s personality, I can say for certain that I didn t find her disagreeable, but I also didn t find her shy or extroverted or anything particular memorable other than a special talent she has She also has white hair something she tries very hard to hide since her hair color is known to frighten people and make them uncomfortable At the end of the book a very difficult decision is forced upon her and I suspect it will be her struggle with this decision that will begin to fully endear her to me.Overall, I found the world building easy to follow and never felt weighed down by too much being thrown at me Lately I ve been finding myself really enjoying the Asian inspired fantasy novels that I ve run across and this was no exception At the same time, I did feel it lose just a little steam in a small portion of the book right before the climax began occurring There was plenty going on at that moment so I m not quite sure why I felt that way, but it occurred for me nevertheless Even with this in mind, I definitely enjoyed the book and plan to pick up the next in the series.Rating 4 starsThanks to 47North and Netgalley for the advanced reader copy and opportunity to provide an honest review

    Revenge settles nothing It only poisons those who carry it in their hearts The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler My thoughts Two nights ago, I was outside with my elderly beagle While he sniffed his way around my yard, I watched the sky The moon was full and it cast a silvery glow on the grass and trees, only interrupted by clouds that seemed to be growing as I watched It had been an unseasonably warm day and only now did a cold wind start stirring around me The air was moist and seemed to ru Revenge settles nothing It only poisons those who carry it in their hearts The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler My thoughts Two nights ago, I was outside with my elderly beagle While he sniffed his way around my yard, I watched the sky The moon was full and it cast a silvery glow on the grass and trees, only interrupted by clouds that seemed to be growing as I watched It had been an unseasonably warm day and only now did a cold wind start stirring around me The air was moist and seemed to run its cold fingers across my skin As the breeze picked up, it carried the smell of damp earth and decaying leaves The hair raised on my arms and neck as I felt like I was being watched It was eerie and unnerving I hurried my dog inside and dead bolted my door against the dark and whatever was in it.You may be wondering what this has to do with The Killing Fog by Jeff Wheeler That s reasonable Bear with me and I ll tell you Wheeler has a way with words that immediately pulls you into the setting within the first paragraph He draws on all the senses in his world building and puts you straight in the middle of a world that is touched by ancient China and Mongolia You can smell the camphor, myrrh, and cinnamon You can hear the marketplace or the shouts of the soldiers You can see the boats laden with fish And yes, you can feel the eeriness and foreboding of the Killing Fog It was a feeling almost exactly like my midnight excursion with my pup and I wanted to lock my doors lest the fog rolled in and claimed my furballs lives Bingmei has faced farthan an unnerving dog walk, as she lives and breathes in this wild world Wheeler has created She has faced loss upon loss and now struggles with developing attachments Here are her thoughts after one such loss Loss quivered in her chest again, though she tried to still the wrenching sensation Death was something that happened often It did no good to become too attached to people Bingmei often feels throughout the book that she would not sacrifice herself for anyone That she is selfish Over the course of the book she comes to the conclusion that she would die for her friend Quion and that maybe she s not as selfish as she thought When she s asked to sacrifice herself for a cause greater than herself she balks at the idea Maybe it s selfishness on Bingmei s part or maybe it s because too many have already died to preserve her life Maybe throwing her life away seems to her that it wastes their sacrifice This is a truly honest feeling How many of us would choose to sacrifice ourselves, given the chance to think about it beforehand Overall, I don t think any of that detracts from her character since it is such a human thing to feel Bingmei is likable and fierce She has secret skills that are unique from most fantasy books I ve read The supporting characters were also interesting Bunmia Suun is her master and a maternal figure in Bingmei s life She is highly skilled as a warrior and highly moral Her honor and how she lives it day to day is refreshing as it s not cheesy or portrayed as weaker than themorally ambiguous characters She loves her followers dearly and treats Bingmei as a daughter One quote I liked, is Bunmia describing herself When I take an assignment to protect something, I protect it as a mother does her cubs It is powerful magic The most powerful, I believe We also have two potential love interests that, thankfully, never descends into a love triangle Any romantic feelings are secondary to the rest storyline The first is Quion He is the sweet, steadfast boy next door The other is Rowen, our brooding bad boy that isthan he seems I look forward to seeing which one wins the girl This is a very clean read where love is hinted atthan anything One last thing, I truly appreciate what Wheeler has done with this book The female characters are strong, fierce, moral, and honorable without falling into stereotypes that still prevail in fantasy fiction How many times are a woman s strength portrayed as being less than a man s and she needs to be rescued from her innate weakness Here the men and women are on equal footing Their strengths are different but equal If one character shows any weakness, it is because they are human, not because they are male or female Many thanks to the author for writing his characters that way Also, my thanks to Netgalley for the ARC on exchange for my honest review Real love is displayed when a choice has to be made It would be easy to heal everyone who was sick if it didn t cost you anything But what if it meant excruciating pain Then you would have to make a choice Do I love enough to take on that pain, or do I take the easy route and keep this gift to myself Daughter of Light by Morgan L Busse Some recommended reading that I think is similar to this book Daughter of Light by Morgan L BusseMark of the Raven by Morgan L BusseProphet by R.J LarsonA
