Prince of the Icemark (The Icemark Chronicles, #0.5) Reviews

  • Raihani

    Utterly brilliant! In the first novel, 'Cry of the Icemark' we only get to know Redrought for a brief moment as the story focuses on Thirrin. So having the chance to read about Redrought, seeing him at his lowest and growing to be a king is fantastic. I suppose what makes me so engrossed while reading this book is the fact that you get drawn into Redrought rough charm, his clumsy honesty, his outrageous logic and his exuberance. You can't help but like him more and more as the story progresses d [...]

    I can't say much since I shouldn't really have read this yet, considering it hasn't been released. What I will say is Their Vampiric Majesties are hilarious as ever. Arrogant, pompous, selfish, with their amazing terms of endearment such as 'my darling corpse', it's hard not to love them. The story is yet another invasion, true, but it is more than that. It's different to the other books, and is good in its own right. Once again, the battle scenes are fabulous. Absolutely amazing. This is a fine [...]

  • Stettafire

    The book is brilliant, up until the ending, which felt a little rushed.

  • Melissa Cabbage

    Frankly, the series should not have been marketed as a 'junior Game of Thrones' because it sets the trap of comparing, and although I agree that said marketing was the reason of luring me to this book in the first place (along with the schemingly similar cover design), the critic in me would have been clicking her tongue in distaste at a declaration as bold as that. I do realise the keyword should've been 'junior' but the word was overshadowed in my mind unfortunately. Regardless, I did find mys [...]

  • Daphne

    This book was a lot weaker than any of the others in the Icemark series, and that's a shame. I almost feel like the author wrote himself into a corner by writing a prequel to the rest of the books. It meant he couldn't introduce many new characters because there would be no explanation for their disappearance in the books that took place later, it also meant that the end of the story is already pretty much known by the readers.A few new characters were introduced, but none of them were very memo [...]

  • Arsnoctis

    Pince of the Icemark (inedito in Italia) è il prologo di Cry of the Icemark (Icemark in italiano) e può essere preso come punto di partenza della serie oppure può essere letto in corso d'opera; io per esempio l'ho letto dopo Cry of the Icemark.Potrebbe essere il primo prologo che apprezzo davvero -dopo tanto tempo- e posso dire di essere tornata con piacere ad Icemark grazie a queste pagine.Un libro onesto, con degli ottimi personaggi e qualche dialogo particolarmente brillante, mi ha fatto s [...]

  • Chris

    I did enjoy this story though it didn't really match the tone or pacing of the other three books in the series.The prince of the Icemark is supposed to be a prequel to The Cry of The Icemark, however the mythos and philosophical parts of the world are expanded here with the edition of a new group of people, the Zoroastrians, who are the merchant people of the Icemark. They were never mentioned in the other book. Spirits-of-Battle and Bare-Sarkers are introduced too. These are supposed to be part [...]

  • Nina (Death, Books, and Tea)

    Was very excited about this one due to it being a prequel to the Icemark (one of my favourite series as a child) Greatly enjoyed seeing the young Redrought. Battle scenes were just as well written as in the rest of the series. Definitely read Saphia as in love with Athena (look at her thoughts about Athena eg at start of chapter 17, plus the link of Saphia/Sappho). Definitely a deserving prequel.

  • Oliwija

    I did not like this as much as the trilogy but, it was still very good. just very different from the other Icemark books. But it was different in a good way, but it's tragic that many of the persons we meet in this book, we will know what happens to them in the Cry of the Icemark. But some of them, will we never know what becomes of them.

  • Rick Mcarthur

    Thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Stuart Hill's Other Dimensional Universe that he creates here for fantasy fans. Even as it had been nearly 5 years since I first encountered the original trilogy it connects to I was able to step right back into the characters domain with no memory loss at all! Recommend it largely!

  • Harry Clarke

    horrific.The front of the books says "a junior game of thrones" and i can honestly say that is pure bullshit. Just one of the worst, most immature, terribly written books i have ever read. Do not put yourself through the torture of this shitty culmination of hideous ink blotches. Awful.

  • Chantal

    A wonderfully, rollicking fantasy adventure of heroism, sacrifice and overcoming obstacles without losing who you really are.Perfectly pitched at 12-14 year olds, with plenty of action, yet not too macabre.

  • Devyn

    I am terribly disappointed in you Stuart Hill! I feel you half-assed and half-hearted this book. The writing style is so off I've even wondered if you wrote this or someone else did. Prince of the Icemark doesn't have even a quarter of the sophistication and humor The Cry of the Icemark had. :(

  • Alexandra

    I loved learning more about Therrins Father and lineage but I didn't find it as gripping as the other novels. The tone was very different. More of a younger audience. The writing was strong but simple. The simplicity is what separates it from the first two novels especially.

  • Clara

    Love it!!!! Wasnt expecting a prequel, but was very happy to discover one existed and was already out!!!! Now i have to read the rest of the books! Great Read!
