Many years have passed since Queen Thirrin and her allies defended the Icemark against a brutal invasion. But now General Bellorum is back, along with his bloodthirsty spawn--twin sons even more vicious than him. Thirrin and Oskan also have a family: two girls and three boys. But darkness lurks within the House of Lindenshield: Medea, the couple's cold-hearted fifteen-year-old daughter, is just coming into her magical powers, and she may be the downfall of the kingdom. It's up to her brother, Charlemagne, crippled by polio as a child, to return from exile and rescue the land he loves.RAVE REVIEWS FOR THE CRY OF THE ICEMARK:*Winner of the Ottakars Prize for Best New Children's NovelFROM LIBRARIANS!"Thirrin's vibrant story will be pounced upon and eagerly consumed."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"Offers ample rewards.
