Book Review + Giveaway: Armadas in the Mist

Title: Armadas in the Mist (Empire of the House of Thorns Series, Book Three | Author: Christian Klaver | Genre: YA Fiction | Publisher: CamCat Books | Release Date: November 2022

Book Description:

The Black Shuck’s forces gather just beyond the mist . . .

Captain Justice Kasric knows how complicated family can be. The escalating Human-Faerie war has scattered and wounded her siblings and transformed her parents beyond recognition. After narrowly escaping yet another dangerous clash, fifteen-year-old Justice has had enough. She’s determined to defeat the Black Shuck, the mysterious leader controlling the Faerie invasion of London, but if Justice hopes to stand a chance at victory, she’ll have to do the impossible: reunite her family and lead them against the looming Faerie Armada.

With her mother and brother at the helm of the enemy fleet, and the prophesized Seven Virtues slipping out of reach, Justice more than has her work cut out for her. Even if she can save England, the cost may be higher than she’s willing to pay.

My Thoughts:

Justice, now a captain — though she jokes often that admiral is the more appropriate term for the commander of a ship — navigates her crew through harrowing storms and tense battles as she continues the fight to save London from the Faerie. While her mother and brother side with the Faerie, Justice and the rest of her siblings fight against them. But do they need to side with them to win the war? As this wholly-unique saga continues, expect the unexpected at every turn. From a brother who had transformed into an unrecognisable beast and a boyfriend who has recovered his sight through the viewpoint of a bird, this is a truly imaginative YA fantasy.

This is a well-written, exciting adventure in a fantasy world that constantly surprises readers. The author does a particularly good job of reminding readers of previous events without drawn out recollections. As someone who hasn’t yet read Book 2, I felt like I was up to speed with the characters and the backstory within the first couple of chapters. This is a compelling series that will keep readers turning pages.

The Faerie have come to take London, and only one girl stands in their way.

Justice isn’t your average fifteen-year-old girl. She’s an irrepressible scoundrel, and she always has a plan. But her world falls apart when her father forcibly bundles the entire family into carriages in the middle of the night and carts them off to a strange mansion on the outskirts of Victorian London. The Faerie are invading, but the Kasric siblings can’t stay neutral in the ensuing war when they find their parents on opposing sides. Justice has no choice but to embrace her burgeoning magical powers to fight against the Faerie and save her family.

At fifteen, Justice may be the youngest ever Admiral to command her own ship and lead a resistance, but she has the magic and the will to do it. If only nearly every other member of her family weren’t either in immediate danger of dying—or attempting to kill her!

Forced to make dangerous pacts with more than one unpredictable ally, only Justice can decide how far she’ll go to save London. Is it worth sacrificing even a member of her own family.
