LoveReading View on Cry of the Icemark

In a fantastically well-imagined ice-bound world, fourteen year old Thirrin is made Queen of Icemark after her father has been killed in battle.

To keep her tiny kingdom safe, Thirrin must defend the country against a ferocious invasion helped by an unusual crew of allies including Wolf folk and Snow leopards and her very special friends, Oskan.

An exciting adventure in a frozen world.

Blade of Fire and Last Battle of the Icemark are two more titles in the series.


Cry of the Icemark Synopsis

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 her nation has ever known. This is the epic story of how she rallies her country and finds some extraordinary new allies: Vampires, Wolf-folk, giant Snow Leopards - and most precious of all, her friend Oskan, Witch's Son.
