Overview


Allied with Cronus, the embodiment of all evil, Medea has raised an army of the undead to invade her family's kingdom. Now in paperback, the thrilling conclusion to the acclaimed ICEMARK trilogy!

Oskan and Thirrin thought their bad-seed daughter was gone for good -- burnt to a cinder and cast out onto the Spirit Plain. But banishment did not kill Medea: It made her stronger. Now, allied with Cronus, embodiment of all evil, the young sorceress is plotting revenge. Queen Thirrin is distracted by a new invader whose troops ride huge triceratops-like beasts into battle. But the warlock Oskan realizes the true threat to the kingdom is the demon army assembled by his daughter. To ensure the Icemark's eternal safety, he knows he must destroy her soul--even at the risk of his own.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
This "thrilling conclusion to the Icemark trilogy" is a real page-turner, even for this reviewer, who has not read the other two books (The Cry of the Icemark, Blade of Fire: The Icemark Chronicles Book 2. Queen Thirrin's daughter Medea, a powerful sorceress, has gone over to the dark side and must now be considered a powerful enemy. Unfortunately, there are complications involving the Queen's consort Oskan whose father Cronus has become the undisputed Master of the dark side. All of this was covered in the first two books, of course, so the newcomer has to catch up—but what fun it is to meet princes and witches and warlocks and especially Kirimin, the Princess of the Snow Leopards' kingdom. Cronus is, of course, Medea's grandfather, and in spite of her desire to rule the darkness with him, his plans have very little to do with her. For some unknown reason (at least unknown to this reader) Cronus despises his own son and will do anything to destroy him. "Anything" includes corrupting his daughter, trying to mislead him, causing him to feel lost in the Plain of Desolation, and making him lash out at his wife for what seems to be no reason at all. That various kingdoms in this universe are at war with each other makes for fascinating descriptions of weapons or animals that can be used as weapons—the "Elephanta" which has a tail at either end (!) and the "Tri-Corn" which is probably a triceratops. The end wraps everything up nicely. Gentle enough for readers new to the genre. Recommended. Reviewer: Judy Silverman

Meet the Author


The Cry of the Icemark, Stuart Hill’s first novel is not only a remarkable debut but also a personal tribute. When he was a teenager, Stuart lost “the real Thirrin,” his red-haired sister Kathleen, to leukemia. The story of the brave young warrior-queen who faces impossible dangers is dedicated to her. The Cry of the Icemark won the Ottakars Prize for the best new children’s novel, an award given by one of Britain’s leading book chains. Fox 2000 Pictures will turn the story into a major motion picture and foreign rights have been sold to over 14 countries.

Among his influences Stuart counts H. Rider Haggard, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Margaret Abbey—his former grade school teacher and a writer of historical novels. Before beginning The Cry of the Icemark, he asked himself what had grabbed his interest as a young reader. The answer? Heroes, magic, monsters, and talking beasts. From noble Snow Leopards to ancient Vampire royalty to ferocious Wolf-folk, the characters in Icemark are sure to spark the imagination of children everywhere, and Stuart is already at work on the sequel to Thirrin’s epic tale.

Stuart was born in Leicester, in the East Midlands of England, where he still lives today. His family background includes English, Irish, Romany, and Jewish blood. Although, as a student, his grades were average at best, Stuart was fortunate to have a teacher who inspired in him a lifelong love of reading. Since leaving school, he has worked as a teacher and archaeologist, and now balances life as both a bookseller and an author.

    Truely an astounding series

    It's hard to describe the final contribution to this delightful series. I think these books find that perfect balance of showing off every one of the characters and forcing you to fall in love with all of them. I have to admit, though, as much as I enjoyed the book, this one was probably my least favorite in the series just because there wasn't the same sense of urgency that compelled me through the previous books' chapters like wildfire. The setting of the war didn't take place in the Icemark like the previous two, so I didn't feel that connection and willingness to die for their cause. The silver lining however is that all the bits with Medea and Oskan make up for the lackluster battle; they were INTENSE and amazing! Get ready for some tear-jerking moments though, I was bawling at certain points. Overall, as I said, not my favorite in the series, but it still has five stars and I still appreciate this amazing conclusion to a truely astouding series. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good read XD

    Great Finale! 4.5 Stars!

    This series was amazing and Last Battle of the Icemark was a great finish to it! Hill created a cast of characters that I just didn't want to say goodbye to. This is one author that I will definately be keeping my eye on in the future! Fabulous job, Mr. Hill!
