Solveig, her older sister and younger brother, the crown prince, are trapped in a hidden fortress tucked between a narrow fjord and towering mountains.  Their father sent them there, along with a band of fierce and restless warriors, to protect them during battle with his sworn enemy.

But mysterious things are happening – food missing, cows slaughtered, and everyone in the fortress is suspected of being a traitor.  Solveig struggles to reconcile her suspicions of treachery with memories and stories of her past – who has broken her trust?  And will the company die of starvation while they wait for spring – or will their enemy find them first?

Icefall is the latest from Matthew J. Kirby, author of The Clockwork Three.  Rich characters, beautiful stories, compelling questions and, of course!, a surprising ending makes Icefall a delicious read.

Highly recommended for ages 11 and up.
