Publisher's Summary

After the death of her beloved father, headstrong princess Thirrin Freer Strong-In-The-Arm becomes warrior queen of her homeland, Icemark, defending it from a formidable invader. Despite Thirrin's bravery and the support of Oskan, the Witch's son, the task proves more difficult than Thirrin ever dreamed. She must assemble a force to rival her opponent. And, in the chill winter of Icemark, she only has until spring to unite the strange beasts and frightening creatures who live just outside her country. Ultimately, it is Thirrin's vision and determination that will see her through to victory.

I finally got my husband to love books

I read this book a long time ago and I love how it was brought to life. My husband loved it, and got so into it that he's gone from groaning when I mention books to looking forward to them more than I do. the story was amazing, and it was great to 'read' it again after so long to gain a more mature and profound appreciation for the story as a whole and all of its details. One of the best books I've ever read.

Well done.

This book was an enjoyable YA epic fantasy that kept me involved for the duration. Well written, interesting characters interplay in a struggle for a kingdom's survival. Be prepared for a number of battle scenes.

Great Listen

While the story has some awkward transitions, Ms. Oneill did a fantastic job. However, I feel she failed to capture the regal nature of the vampires and snow leopards fully.

If you like old times combat and war- this is an excellent book.

It has many similarities to the series Rangers apprentice in the style of combat and the focusing on the main character who is both young and has to deal with medieval armies. The world is rich with a diverse culture and realistic attributes like the deeper traditions of the Viking culture. Excellent book for teenagers and people who like a good female main character
