Characteristic of Stuart Hill’s writing is the lively storytelling and wild fantasy that brings to the reader an utterly compelling read. Last Battle of the Icemark is the extraordinary finale to the Icemark trilogy that began with his award-winning debut, Cry of the Icemark and continued in Blade of Fire. Fans of the Icemark titles or those new to the author will love it in equal measure.
With her murderous daughter, Medea, banished to the spirit world, Queen Thirrin's tiny kingdom of Icemark has enjoyed a time of peace. But her consort, Oskan Witchfather, fears for their nation - and rightly so. Medea is out for revenge. Allied with the King of the Darkness and his terrifying Ice Demons, the power of evil grows stronger day by day. The dark is rising and the Icemark and its allies must stop it.
Praise for the Icemark trilogy:
‘The writing is as crisp and clear and the snowy landscape Hill depicts so beautifully.’ Sunday Telegraph
‘His original and quirky approach could yet make him the proper heir to Joan Aiken’s crown.’ Philip Ardagh, Guardian
‘A most satisfying, absorbing and compelling read.’ Carousel
