Product Description

Icemark’s tiny, frozen kingdom is under siege. In the savage heart of battle, can a plucky young queen forge the strength to save her people from extinction? When her father dies in battle, fourteen-year-old Thirrin becomes Queen of the Icemark, determined to defend her tiny kingdom from the most terrible invasion it has ever known. This is the glorious epic story of how she rallies her country with the aid of some extraordinary new allies: Vampires, Wolf-folk, giant Snow Leopards – and most precious of all, her friend Oskan, the witch’s son.

Winner of the Ottakar’s Children’s Book Prize 2005.

“A supremely satisfying read which really deserves to be called a page-turner.” Philip Ardagh, Guardian

“Will have readers shivering with delight.” The Times

“The writing is as crisp and clear as the snowy landscape Hill depicts so beautifully.” Sunday Telegraph

Stuart Hill

Stuart Hill, author of the popular fantasy novels The Cry of the Icemark, Blade of Fire and Last Battle of the Icemark, was born in 1958 and raised in Leicester, England where he still lives. The book he would most like to have written is King Solomon’s Mines by Rider Haggard. Stuart’s advice for would-be authors? ‘Keep going and be prepared for a long apprenticeship. It can take years to learn your craft, and probably should.’
