Overview

In a village of the frozen north, a child is born possessed by a strange and alien spirit, only to be cast out by her tribe and taken in by the mysterious winter witches of Irrisen, a land locked in permanent magical winter. Farther south, a young mapmaker with a penchant for forgery discovers that his sham treasure maps have begun striking gold. This is the story of Ellasif, a barbarian shield maiden who will stop at nothing to recover her missing sister, and Decclan, the ne'er-do-well young spellcaster-turned-forger who wants only to prove himself to the woman he loves. Together they'll face monsters, magic, and the fury of Ellasif's own cold-hearted warriors in their quest to rescue the lost child. Yet when they finally reach the ice-walled city of Whitethrone, where trolls hold court and wolves roam the streets as men, will it be too late to save the girl from the forces of darkness?

    A Little Cooled Off by This One

    I did enjoy this book overall, but I have to say, to date, it was my least favorite of all currently published. Don't get me wrong, it was enjoyable, it just didn't grab me the way its predecessor did, and I've enjoyed each successive book more as well. There were two specific parts that I really enjoyed, though. First, the beginning takes place in Korvosa, and having played Curse of the Crimson Throne, I felt like I was going back home. I had visited these places before, and I could see them again. Even the Shingle Runner feat from the player's guide made an appearance. The other part was the special version of magic Declan was able to perform with his art. I really liked how things were brought into reality, and it reminded me of an episode of Eerie Indiana and a magic pencil when I was a kid. Very cool. As I said, overall I enjoyed it, and the book was well-written, but the lack of draw brought it down to 4 stars.
