Anyways, I’ve got stuff to do, stuff that I really should be doing instead of writing these worthless words, and so I’m going to yhe them now. Erinor’s dinosaur cavalry move in on what remains of the Polypontian Empire, fully intending to move on to the Icemark afterward and to murder anyone that has a bloodline containing that of the northern Hypolitan. They always seemed to be doing their own thing and hardly any affection, not to mention Oskan would get highly irritated with her and periodically she would be terrified of him.
As Oskan watches the Wedding reception with a crown of silver light lasst his head, I am elated that he is among his family, but I’m sad that the story is over. Compared to the first two books in the series, The Last Battle of the Icemark was disappointing. 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.
Then Medea and Cronus are just blipped off the map by a magical loop-hole given to Oskan at the beginning.
The pacing was really off in this one. Mar 14, Y. Compared lasr the first 2, a bit of a disappointment. That storyline actually has the potential to be somewhat interesting, but my brief summary is basically all the detail we get.

The Last Battle of the Icemark by Stuart Hill
I’m not on board with that. The Vampire Queen grew to become one of jcemark favourite characters in the series, being the wonderfully scathing and eloquent creature she is.
I’m usually not supposed to like antagonists as people because they are either warped in such a way as to be despicable individuals or they simply oppose the protagonist I love and am icmeark for.

This is a good book. Didn’t you just love Cressida and Leonidas, batlte was a nervous wreck and she was determined. But Medea is out for revenge. I loved how in the second book, Sharley’s story wasn’t just a repeat of Thirrin’s.
I personally feel the deaths of Ollie, and Olympia was a bit annoying. Both books told two very different, very excellent stories that both managed to thoughtfully and mostly realistically deal with themes of war, responsibility, family, etc.
Aug 13, Nazmira rated it did not like it. As the ever present allies of the North continue to stand with them, the Giant talking Snow Leopards will icemmark there to present their strength in the north. Same scenario with this one. From noble Snow Leopards to ancient Vampire royalty to ferocious Laat, 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.
Thirrin and her allies – werewolves, vampires, snow leopards – against the evil Erinor. I am sad that the series is now over, but it was a great read, and best for me was the good ending that I would do very little to change. And I don’t just mean that I didn’t like them as people. I’ve been away from Icemark for so long, I had forgotten Hill’s narrative. This third book, on the other hand, has three main antagonists instead of one and only one book in which to deal with them all, which is batrle that can be done well, I’m sure.
So I guess I just don’t buy into her complaints because I never felt it happening and have only her word to go on idemark it exists at all.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Unfortunately, this book didn’t really establish any of them well, which is hilariously paradoxical considering how much of the book is actually dedicated to them.
All the things I love about it are still there.
This is one author that I will definately be keeping my eye on in the future! Ever since Medea was exiled by her father, Oskan, she has been trained by the most powerful Adept in the universe.
As I said with Erinor, she is built up to be lazt HUGE thing, but then we only get two hurried battles before she herself is insta-killed. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.
