This heavy focus on antagonists I don’t care about also means that the main cast of characters I do love didn’t have as much page time. Which, again, icemarm as critical a problem in the second book because her role in the story was relatively minor and on the sidelines.
I’ve noticed that a common theme in all a common theme in all three books is that Therrin and Oskan allways seem to be faced with 1 war It’s like all the books are focused on a different war, one after another.
Books that have stuck with me for all the right reasons. But with Medea, I never felt it.
This series was amazing and Last Battle of the Icemark was a great finale! But Medea is out for revenge. Compared to the first two books The final book in the Icemark series, entitled The Last Battle of the Icemark, follows all the characters of the first two books but is told mainly through Thirrin and Charlemagne.
I still have that itchy feeling that the series could have had a more tragic yet better ending if Thirrin, Tharaman, and Krisafista had died I mean, them surviving the bomb was rather far-fetched but the ending was well written, so I have no complaints.
So, after all these years I finally got ot to reading the finale to see how ends the story. And I know this favoritism-turned-me-evil thing can be done well.
I was eager for more of the series’ trademark battle scenes and drama, but the first chunk of the book held only the slightest battlr of those elements. It was a perfect end to the series. The final book in the Icemark series, entitled The Last Battle of the Icemark, follows all the characters of the first two books but is told mainly through Thirrin and Charlemagne. Stuart Hill lwst dark humor, potty humor, supernatural powers, and much more. The Cry of the Icemark batfle the Ottakars Prize for the best new children’s novel, an award given by one of Britain’s leading book chains.
Anyway, if you’ve made it this far, O commend you for what it’s worth and hope that you don’t feel like you’ve wasted your time. Though I’d be lying if I told you you hadn’t wasted at least five minutes reading this and continuing to read this nonsense that I don’t even know why I, myself am writing.
Erinor’s forces are ov the Empire – one village at a time. With that being stated the book was enjoyable, and te ended up to be a good conclusion to the Icemark Chronicles. I sort of got the feeling she just got on his nerves a lot. This has caused the Polypontians to break up and many civil wars have started to take their place.
Last Battle of the Icemark
Despite this being the end of the series, which in most cases would bring a tedious plot without much action, Stuart Hill was able to keep up the tension and action like in the other books. Forget about taking away her powers, she needs to go! May 13, Marissa rated it it was ok.
I guess that’s just another aspect of these Stuart Hill books that is so wonderful. To ask other readers questions about The Last Battle of the Icemarkplease sign up.
I thought that was it for him; little to my amazement he lived. The coast was well and truly clear,” Hill, This was a mysterious atmosphere that was icemadk on, and was also one of the same paragraphs that kept me on my toes throughout the whole book. So I was pleasantly surprised to see his reaction to the thought that Thirrin had died.
The Last Battle of the Icemark (Chronicles of Icemark, book 3) by Stuart Hill
Although it was still a great read and well-written, the plot from the first two books was much more interesting and original. First of all, the last battle of the Icemark against the Ice Demons was vague and poorly explained, especially by Stuart Hill standards.

The child’s exchange with Thirrin must have been my favorite part in the entire book. I am sad that the abttle is now over, but it was a great read, and best for me was the good ending that I would do ve It has been a while since I finished the previous two of the series.
May 25, Sophie Cox rated it really liked it Shelves: If you want her to return as a villain, fine, but there is really no point in making her an active POV character, especially when only a cursory effort oast been given to make her sympathetic, likeable, or even believable.
Oskan is the last defense against evil overtaking goodness in the world and turning the world into pure evil. Now Thirrn, Queen of Icemark must lead her people against a more powerful enemy, Erinor and her uncountable hordes.
The Last Battle of the Icemark
She claims it is because Sharley was her parents’ favorite and she was ignored, but I never really SAW any of that happening. Almost every word he said was some form of melodramatic “taking-over-the-world!
When the other vampires hear the undead may have souls, they are willing to sacrifice themselves for the Icemark, and therefore able to delay Medea and Cronus.
If that was an instance of favoritism, it was one so subtle it had to have been unintentional on the part of Thirrin and Oskan.
We have some Fun loving characters, and although little progression happens with them in this book. As the ever present allies of the North continue to stand with them, the Giant talking Snow Leopards will be there to present their strength in the north.
God, I love you! Where the hell is Sharley? The first of our disappointing Antagonists Three is Medea, who is my least favorite by far. Her half of the book was just ridiculous, boring, annoying, and pointless, and I really wish it wouldn’t have been included. Loving the Lindenshields and the allies of the Icemark is probably the only saving grace of this book.
