Prince of the Icemark

The gripping stand-alone prequel to the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize winner, The Cry of the Icemark.

The tiny, frozen kingdom of Icemark is threatened on all borders by savage supernatural invaders. And when his brother, the king, is killed in battle, it falls to young Prince Redrought to rally his people against the murderous hordes of werewolves, vampires and zombies. But war alone will not be enough. The prince must take the fight beyond the world of the living, into the terrifying Land-of-the-Ghosts. In this enemy territory, he will fall or stand forever in the legends of the Icemark as King Redrought, Bear of the North.

Praise for The Cry of the Icemark:

“A supremely satisfying read.” Philip Ardagh

“Will have readers shivering with delight.” The Times

“The writing is as crisp and clear as the snowy landscape Hill depicts so beautifully.” Sunday Telegraph
