The Cry Of the Icemark
A great children's fantasy story. In places it did remind me of other books. Particularly Thirrin's friendship with the snow leopards. This reminded me of the bears in Pullmans "His Dark Materials" trilogy. I liked the mix of magic with horror. As well as witches and wizards and elfs there are vampires and ghosts and werewolves. I especially liked the part of the ghosts helping the people of the Icemark without them knowing it. A great read with, I hope, more to come.
