Overview

Icefall by Matthew J. Kirby


Trapped in a hidden fortress tucked between towering mountains and a frozen sea, Solveig, along with her brother the crown prince, their older sister, and an army of restless warriors, anxiously awaits news of her father's victory at battle. But as winter stretches on, and the unending ice refuses to break, terrible acts of treachery soon make it clear that a traitor lurks in their midst. A malevolent air begins to seep through the fortress walls, as a smothering claustrophobia slowly turns these prisoners of winter against one another.

Those charged with protecting the king's children are all suspect, and the siblings must choose their allies wisely. But who can be trusted so far from their father's watchful eye? Can Solveig survive the long winter months and expose the traitor before he manages to destroy a kingdom?

"A well-crafted story rich with emotion and intrigue. A thoroughly engaging read!" -- Brandon Mull, bestselling author of the Fablehaven and Beyonders series

Kirby has done it again with this intriguing book. The style of writing is welcome as it was in The Clockwork Three I enjoyed this book, and can't wait to see what's next.

My name is Logan. I grew up on the streets of Colorado homeless. I have black, long hair, bright blue eyes, and a piercing in the right of my bottom lip. One day the police had noticed me hanging out behind a strip mall mire than once. They pulled over to me and asked me if I had a home. Of course I said no. I was adopted by this man named Erik Goodyear. I was never really accepted into the family, so I ran away. One day after spending a lot of time in wyoming, I took refuge in a church. A man with greasy black hair, and a robe tat looked as if souls were trying to excape from the folds appeared to me. He called me his son and told me it was time for my retribution. Suddenly i passd out. When I woke up, he was no longer there. Where he was standing was a sword stuck in the ground. On te side/ etched in green lettering,, it said ghostblade. I pulled it out of the ground and it emmidiately shrank into a skull shapd ring. I slipped it out of my finger and walked out of the church. The sun felt harsh on my pale skin. I felt a buzzing in the back of my head. Like an internal compass. It told me to head to long island sound. It told me to head to camp half blood.
