Now in paperback with a new photographic cover, the epic conclusion to the acclaimed Icemark trilogy!

Ever since Medea's exile to the Darkness, the Icemark has enjoyed a period of peace and prosperity. Warrior Queen Thirrin believes the bad-seed sorceress is gone for good-burnt to ashes and cast out on the Spirit Plain.

But banishment did not kill Medea: It made her stronger. Allied with Cronus, embodiment of all evil, Medea is raising an army of the undead to invade her family's kingdom! Can her father, the warlock Oskan, summon the powers to stop her?

Stuart Hill is the author of The Cry of the Icemark, winner of the Ottakar's prize for best first children's novel, and its sequel, Blade of Fire. He lives in Leicester, England.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good end to a great trilogy! I was a little hesitant to read The Last Battle of the Icemark because the second book, Blade of Fire, was a little bit of a let down. Was it as good as the first book, The Cry of the Icemark? No, but it also wasn't bad. It's not perfect. Some characterization seemed nonexistent, but what can you really do with someone completely bent on evil? The character of Cronus should have been one of the greatest villians in the series, seeing as he is Chaos, but he was so one sided, it got a little bit boring. Yes Cronus, we realize you are all powerful and evil, but seriously, show some other emotions once in awhile will ya? Medea, Thirrin and Oskan's daughter, is back once again for vengence. I liked that she seemed to question if she was evil and if she was truly capable of hurting her family. The story has some predictable elements, but the ultimate showdown in the end doesn't disappoint. If you have read the first two books, I suggest reading this. It's a good end to a very good trilogy.
