A red witch in hiding....
Thirteen years fleeing witch hunters and the looming threat of death. Nineteen-year-old Remy knows she is possibly the last red witch alive, and she is determined to stay that way. The Northern Court King has slaughtered her home court and placed a bounty on red witch heads.
When four fae warriors enter her tavern refuge, Remy tries to flee, but her magic isn’t strong enough to stop a fae prince on a mission. The handsome Prince Hale of the Eastern Kingdom wants to stop a war with the Northern Court before his kingdom befalls the same fate as Remy’s. He needs a red witch, and Remy may be the only person alive who can help him. Can she really trust Prince Hale? Can her fallen court be resurrected from the evil clutches of the Northern Court King? For the chance to save herself, her people, and help defeat the Northern King, Remy must put her faith in Hale and his companions on a dangerous quest to find lost relics.
The High Mountain Court is the first book in the thrilling fantasy saga The Five Crowns of Okrith. Expect danger, intrigue, and thrilling passion as Remy journeys to save the kingdom she holds most dear.

«Never let anyone else tell you who you are, Remi, not even me. No one decides how bright you shine but you.» Remi's mom
With The High Mountain Court, A.K. Mulford sets up a beautiful world in which a diverse cast will evolve. In this YA fantasy, she introduces us to Okrith and it’s five courts (High Mountain, Western, Southern, Northern and Eastern). Each court has their own witches (red, brown, blue, green and purple).
I really like that the author uses the trip of Remi to explain to us the different culture and the different powers that each coven of witches has. There is a lot of world building and description but because it is separated between each place, it’s a little bit less overbuilding.
I also like the fact that each court is really different. Nothing is left behind by A.K. Mulford, their skin color is different, their clothes and their ways of living also.
I just think there was a little bit too much description in some parts of the story.
The plot is well written and you discover the plot at the same time as Remi. There is just enough suspense to give you the feeling of wanting more. I figured out some parts of the plot before it happened, but I was still surprised by the end of it. For me, it’s always a good thing.
Like in some of other fantasy, there were some obstacles that seemed unconquerable, but the characters got over them easily. For me, it’s always frustrating and seems rushed by the author.
Finally, A.K. Mulford introduces us to such a good and diverse cast of characters. For me, it’s the best part of the book. Remi has just enough sass and she has a strong personality. When she sets her head around something, no one will be able to change her mind. She is relatable and believable.
Hale is a strong fae warrior with a big heart and I like the fact that he doesn’t need to feel superior. He wants everyone to be equal.
I think my favorites are «The eagles», two of the fae warriors under Hale commandement. They are full of dry humor.
I like that we have different LGBTQ representants and no one is afraid of who they are and who they like. She choose to represent homosexuel and non-binary characters. It was refreshing and well explained. She also makes sure to use the right pronoun for everyone.
The relationships are upfront and enjoyable. They are reliable through the ups and downs and you really feel the affection between them.
I’m a sucker for chosen family or family by heart. A.K. Mulford prouves us that it’s ok to be broken and it’s ok to choose your family from your heart instead of your blood relatives.«Help lead this worl into a better future, Remi. Be brave and kind and strong and clever, as you've always been.»Heather
No spoilers but lots of emotions.
This book had no business being as good as it was. I had soo many emotions at the end I was at a loss for words and then I found my words, and the author online and yelled at her (in a loving and respectful way). Because when authors break our hearts we yell at them. This is the way, when people make us feel things. My favorite thing about authors opening themselves up on social platforms is the ability to tell them our feelings. I am mad at you A.K. Period.
Anyway back to the book. There is magic and an adventure and witches and fae and spice comes later in the book and it surprised me. 🌶 🌶 🌶 🌶 🧙🧙♂️🧝♀️🧝♂️🧝🌲🌲🌲🤏👇🐎🍆🍑. If A.K reads this she knows what I am talking about.
Umm read this book. Kay thanks byeeee.
I loved the world created, and all the wonderful characters. I loved Hale, Remy, the twin Eagles, and Carys. A few times I did feel the plot advanced faster than it should've but it was still wonderful to read. I may actually have to buy this book despite getting it with Kindle unlimited. I loved it a LOT.
The steamy roller coaster ride is rough on the heartstrings but great for the imagination.

My only negatives were the super long chapters. This is something I don't like in any book so it's not the authors fault. And parts of the book were highly predictable, I had a couple of the major plot twists figured out in the first few chapters.
Overall, highly recommend if you loved Throne of Glass and want the addition of witches.
The overall ot could be great, if it wasn't for the fact that this borrows an awful lot from other books I this genre. Due to this it is quite mismatched in parts.
I won't carry on with the series.
Then twisted into graphically described sexual relationship between the bastard prince and queen to be, SO many times!! Needless and caused me to totally lose interest in them.
Do not recommend and won’t be reading the next books
The first book I've read where I genuinely cared about the characters (I'm very hard nosed). Although I didn't, I can finally understand how people can get so emotionally invested in books and cry at them. READ THIS BOOK!
