Cry of the Icemark
Ah, this book. It exploded into the dull monotony of todays standard, stereotypical warrior/army/war books for children with a dazzling flash that kept on shining. Stuart, an unknown author, made his debut with shocking success. This book, and its successor, Blade of Fire, are amongst, if not precedent of, the best book I have ever read in my life. 13 years though that may be, I think I can safely say I have read a lot more than most! I have over five hundred books in my bedroom alone, and I can tell you that my hand will always go to that particular tome when I want a good adventure story. A fantastic read; well done Stuart Hill!
