Stuart Hill, author of the popular fantasy novels THE CRY OF THE ICEMARK, BLADE OF FIRE and LAST BATTLE OF THE ICEMARK studied English, Classics and Ancient History at Newcastle University.

It was during snatched coffee breaks from his job in a busy book shop that Stuart wrote his first children's book, THE CRY OF THE ICEMARK. Stuart’s debut went on to win the inaugural Waterstones Children's Book prize in 2005, garnering extraordinary reviews and media coverage.

His books have since been translated into 15 languages.

"'The blood of the Strong-in-the-Arm clan awoke, roaring in Thirrin's brain, and the fighting spirit of the Hypolitan, her mothers people, straightened her spine and sent a tingling excitement coursing through her veins. She was heir to the throne of the Icemark...

She must defend her land and her people!'

When her father dies in battle, fourteen-year-old Thirren becomes Queen Of The Icemark, a tiny kingdom forever caught between dangerous neighbours.

But she bears a heavy burden. Thirrin must find a way to protect her people from the most terrible invasion her nation has ever known. - and do so before the end of the winter snows.

She needs new allies, but can she really trust the son of a White Witch, or Wolf-folk, Vampires and giant talking Snow Leopards from across the icy plains? The Cry of The Icemark is the glorious story of how she rallies her country and finds some extraordinary allies. But its also a heart-felt tale of duty and sacrifice, of unexpected laughter and awful uncertainty, and of a girl whose friendships are forged in the heat of battle."

'...will have readers shivering with delight...From the moment that its 13-year-old herione, princess Thirren, punches a werewolf on the nose you know you're in for a rollicking good read.' - THE TIMES

-...a supremely satisfying read which really deserves to be called a page-turner...[Hill's] original and quirky approach could yet make him the proper heir to Joan Aikens crown.' - PHILIP ARDAGH, GUARDIAN

'...the writing is as crisp and clear as the snowy landscape Hill depicts so beautifully. The characters are so fresh, and the writing so vivid, that Hill should win many new recruits to fantasy fiction among 10 to 14-year-olds.' - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'...a first novel with a distinctive and seductive voice.' - INDEPENDENT'

494 pages.
