Cry of the Icemark was a stirring military fantasy adventure. The author really took the time to bring the cultures of this novel to life. I could see that Icemark people seemed to be modelled after the Scandinavians, while Thyrrin's mother's peoples, the Hypollitan must have been based on the s. And the Polipontans seemed to be like the Roman Empire. The battle scenes were fantastic--thrilling and very well-written. I got the impression that Mr. Hill took these elements very seriously and worke [...]
All right, I am definitely out of the age range of this book and I have apparently outgrown the phase when one-dimension characters in a straightforward plot can win my heart. Now, could they ever? I'm not so sure, but the five-star reviews from young readers show that the book is appreciated and even loved.I decided to give it two stars instead of one for one simple reason: the plot and characters can earn one star at best (since there is no "no-stars" option), while I do see some potential in [...]
I bought this book last 2010 in a book fair at my school and after reading it, set it aside. But now that I rummaged through my library and saw it again, I decided to read it. But then, after I read the first paragraph of the first page, I got hooked just like what happened to me two years ago! With this book, you'll never get bored! What I Love:-The plot and writing style! Excellent made and perfectly-written! I'm not a fan of war books, but because of this masterpiece, it made a boring war sto [...]
I'm not a big fan of war books, but I gave this one a try because I thought there would be more to it. There wasn't. The characters were intriguing, and some of them likable, but they had absolutely no development. One could argue that Thirrin grows stronger etc. but reallye was strong from the very beginning, and she never became any less arrogant, or any more likable. Then there was Oskan, the love friend/possible love interest who really was more of a slave for Thirrin to boss around than any [...]
"Cry of the Icemark" is one of the most sickeningly misogynistic YA stories I have ever had the misfortune of reading. I’m surprised at how many readers have managed to delude themselves into thinking that Hill has written a female role-model in Therin, considering how antagonistic and hateful she is toward all the other female characters she meets in the book (literally, all of them), and her constant insistence on surrounding herself with no one but men. Even her animal companions are male. [...]
From the outset, this story seems contrived and not very deeply thought out. The story begins with a detailed history-book style narrative of the kingdom of Icemark (breaking the vaunted "show, don't tell" rule), and then moves on into some very "staged" plot devices. Example: In the second chapter, the "werewolf" our heroine has captured and brought back to her father's castle (Aren't werewolves supposed to change back into human form at some point? If not, it's not "were," it's just a "wolf.") [...]
This is probably one of my favorite books. I first read this when it was published a few years back and fell in love with the Icemark. I wanted to live there. I adored the werewolves, was impressed by the vampires, and LOVED the snow leopards. Thirrin was the perfect young queen. I read this book over and over and over because it gives a new flavor to worn out species and stories. I was stunned to learn Stuart Hill had written more--
Τρομερό βιβλίο!Η Θιρίν και ο Όσκαρ είναι και οι δύο πολύ δυναμικοί και γενναίοι χαρακτήρες και η χημεία μεταξύ τους απίστευτη!Δεν έχω διαβάσει ούτε έχω δει το game of thrones αλλά σύμφωνα με την πλοκή αυτό το βιβλίο μου το θυμίζει πολύ!
DNF.I gave it two chances and the last one stopped like on page 50, because damn, I was like "Maybe it will get better". It did not and the main character is the most annoying person to exist. Kind of reminded me Ebony Dementia Dark'ness Raven Way from 'My Immortal', but even Ebony was better written Mary Sue than this.
Still one of my all time favourites. This trilogy has my heart forever. It's such a wonderful YA fantasy!
I do not recommend this book if you are someone who is a fan of Tamora Pierce and other quality authors of the fantasy realm. The characters are flat, bland, entirely undeveloped and unoriginal, and half of them can't seem to decide what sort of overall voice they will have in the entire book. The young Thirrin, and mind you this is a 13-year-old-who-turns-14-in-the-book, is nothing more than a royal brat. She constantly loses her temper with absolutely no consequences to follow, and while I lov [...]
I demoted this to two stars. The children enjoyed it for the most part, but it seemed to drag on at the end. Predictable . . . and a bit boring. It started out promising. We really liked it when Therrin punched the werewolf, and then he ended up being the king of the werewolves and eventually swore allegiance to her. But, when the 14 year old heroine takes over the country and the army when her father dies . . . it got boring and predictable. Therrin is an amazing soldier and everyone defers to [...]
Starting note: If you, like me stopped this book on its slow start don't give up hope for the worstoh, wrong speech, it gets better trust me ;)The Cry of the Icemark focuses on Thirrin Freer Strong-in-the-arm Lindenshield. Wildcat of the North. (view spoiler)[ Queen of the Icemark (hide spoiler)] (which incidentally you are told in the inside flap), and her boyfriend adviser, Oskan, Witch's son,(view spoiler)[ and one of the rare Warlocks (hide spoiler)].Thirrin seems nothing more than a arrogan [...]
This is a debut novel with strong promises that the author will hone his craft as other books come along.; but it was a first novel, and it shows. There was a lot of telling of characters' thoughts and motivations (which I tended to skip because they often went on for pages), instead of *showing* their thoughts/motives in more powerful ways. Sometimes the dangerous action, especially in the early chapters, came out of nowhere and didn't seem plausible. Moreover, I was distracted by the feeling t [...]
A book which is clearly written for the teenage / younger market should no be dismissed out of hand because of that. My son recommended this book and so I read it and thoroughly enjoyed it while I did.It was a nice change to read a book where the main character is not only a young female but one who is genuinely tough and who when forced to lead a nation does so from the front without having to ever become a victim or use her wily womanly charms. She is a full on proper heroic protagonist. I lik [...]
I love fantasy books and this one definitely delivered on the goods. I love girls who can fight and Hill made me proud by creating such a courageous heroine in Thirrin. She is so young and yet so responsible. She is definitely a positive role model for young women. Even though she is 14, Thirrin isn't boy-crazy or pretentious. She's not even a "girly-girl". Instead, she is a mini-clone of her father. She is a warrior with a conscious. While the book was a little slow in reaching its climax, I wa [...]
I really struggled through this one. The characters didn't engage me and failed to make that connection that makes a reader care what happens to them. There was no character development and from the beginning the adult characters acted and sounded too much like children. I understand the two main characters are 14 and 15 and in charge of everyone else but still the adult supporting characters I'd expect to act like adults and live up to their role as Supporting Characters, in more ways than one. [...]
I really enjoyed this one. I've had it for a couple of years (given by a friend) and never got around to reading it until yesterday. It was fun, engaging, and keeps you interested the whole way. I am looking forward to the sequels to arrive at my library so I can pick them up!Hill uses an interesting mix of the British and Roman Empires to model the Polypontians on - down to "vini vidi vici" being their announcement and so forth. Some of the parallels made me groan, but not for long. The story o [...]
Cry of the Icemark is the story of young Thirrin, a warrior princess to the land of Icemark. Shortly after her 14th birthday, she is officially made heir to the throne in the case of her father's death. Soon after, an army from the south begins to invade north towards Icemark hoping to overtake the small land and claim it as its own. After her father's brave death in battle Thirrin is then faced with the large responsibility of Queen. Knowing she cannot defeat the invading army she reaches out t [...]
I give "The Cry of the Icemark" a 10 out of 10. I give it this rating because throughout the book there is a interesting event happening so I just wanted to keep reading it and I couldn't stop sometimes. Also, I give it a 10 out of 10 because the characters in the book just flow right into the plot with the treat of war coming the new young queen Thirrin seeks out to find allies that with help them in the upcoming war between her and the General of the Polypontian Empire Scipio Bellorum. I would [...]

When the small land is threatened by the large, industrialized Polypontian Empire Thirrin seeks desperately to find allies to prevent her small land from being destroyed. Werewolves, vampires, witches, and much more exist in the lands around her, but convincing them to fight with her is a batt [...]

And she will lead h [...]
A children’s novel by a debut author about a young queen who must make allies with mystical neighbors and lead her people into war with a massive and highly advanced invading army that seeks to destroy her country. I had high hopes for this book based on the synopsis, and given that it was in the adult clearance section of the bookstore, I didn’t realize it was a children’s book until I started reading it. It was alright for a children’s book, again entertaining, but nothing to write hom [...]
„(…) Całkowicie szczerze uważam, że jeżeli ktokolwiek czerpie pocieszenie z tego, że „zawsze jest ktoś, kto ma gorzej niż ty”, to jest on wyjątkowo żałosnym i chorym osobnikiem. Gdybym zwichnęła nadgarstek, to nie byłabym szczęśliwsza na myśl o tym, że ktoś inny złamał nogę.”Fantastyczny misz-masz, z ciekawie wykreowanymi postaciami oraz opisami pełnymi akcji. Dopracowane i szczegółowe bitwy po prostu porywają. Przyjemna lektura z dużym pokładem wartości i p [...]
I still remember the incident in which I bought this book. Out with some friends for lunch, spent all my money and only a few twenties left, I saw The Cry of the Icemark in a bookstore and after a quick glance at the blurb I simply had to have it.The storytelling was vibrant. I felt there was this nice mingling of seriousness and urgency as well as humour. The humour was well portrayed in a way that didn't downplay the danger. The book wasn't macabre or too dark, which led me to think it was pro [...]
This was my absolute favorite series when I was about twelve years old. Rereading it now, I feel the same wonder I remember in the world of the Icemark. There are some people who complain about the amount of exposition, our that Thirrin is an unlikable protagonist. But, as someone who has slogged through Tolkien and who has a literary soft spot for brash girls, neither of those really bother me. Icemark is a medieval fantasy with a more complex set of characters and a more complex vision of good [...]
The Cry of the Icemark is an excellent fantasy novel with a lot of military strategy and battle. It was a little predictable at times and the main characters had somewhat shallow development but it was written for a younger age group than what I usually read and I think that's the reason for that. It's still a really nice story that I would recommend to people who enjoy military strategy and well written fights.
It's very exciting, that's for sure. The story of a young warrior-queen who has to grow up very quickly and defend her kingdom from the biggest threat in the known world is incredibly exciting and kept me fascinated the entire time. Also, I'm learning a lot about battle tactics and diplomacy that I'd never find out from a history book. It's not the best written book in the world, but it is poigantly moving and uses the sometimes clumsy phrasings to good effect.
"How do we know we can trust you?" "You don't know that you know you can trust me. You'll just have to trust me."Paraphrasing, but that's the gist of it. I quite like the premise but this book was written with children in mind, or so it seemed. The King's behaviour made me want to throw up all over my kindle (he had yellow fluffy slippers on the banquet table) and the way the Princess acts is nowhere near what I'd imagine her to be like. It was just all so twee.
