Princess Thirrin Freer Strong-In-The-Arm Lindenshield is shy in all but battle, so crucial to her homeland of the Icemark. The warriors of the Icemark had never met a foe they could not defeat until Scipio Bellorum marched his fearsome Black Army north to conquer them.
I first bought this book at my school book fair, where you grab anything that looks good because the prices are so low. Many people- mostly slightly strange girls like myself- were drawn to this book, and I loaned it to quite a few of my friends after the book fair was over.
This book is a great read for anyone who likes medival fantasy with a healthy dose of girl power, or for anyone looking for a book like Lord of the Rings or The Hero and the Crown.
