Icefall By Matthew J. Kirby ✓ G ice refuses to break terrible acts of treachery soon make it clear that a traitor lurks in their midst A malevolent air begins to seep through the fortress walls and a smothering claustrophobia slowly turns these prisoners of winter against one anotherThose charged with prote. With all the Rick Riordan obsessiveness and the focus on GreekRomanEgyptian mythology I was REALLY excited to find a book that focuses on Norse mythology Also really excited to find out that it was a mystery and not set in contemporary times and with a strong female protagonist and beautiful writingI listened to the audio book on this way without knowing at first that it's narrated by my FAVORITEST audio book narrator Jenna Lamia and it was a great way to experience the book First because a lot of the nameswords are not super intuitive to pronounce of course the word skald is pronounced scowled and second because Jenna Lamia is THE BEST at internal monologue and thoughtful heroines I LOVED that this book centers around a mystery and Norse mythology but at its core it's a book about the POWER of STORIES It explores a lot about what it means for a story to be true and what it means to be a storyteller I also loved how the author wove in the Norse mythology to parallel the journey taken by its main characters Solveig is such a lovely wonderful character and I want to find out what happens to her after the book endsThis book also has the distinction of being able to transcend age I am pretty sure that a strong 4th grade reader will appreciate this as much as a 10th grader would I am reading this book with my 9 12 year old book club and I hope they like it review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ô Matthew J.

This was a different book than I expected I'd talked to Matt Kirby about it a bit which is how I scored an ARC but for all our talk of skalds and eddas there was very little talk of plot For instance I was under the impression perhaps based on the cover pic that it was an adventure as in the main character goes on a uest and that it had fantastical elementsNopeNotice I'm not saying that this is a bad thing but it is definitely a different thing I will be honest I am frankly wary of books that take on vikings or any Nordic settings This is my heritage this is what my degree is in and I am so FRAKKING SICK of vikings being portrayed as big nose picking brutes or the medieval Scandinavian people as stupid and living in sualor It is particularly bad in middle grade books So I started this book with one eye closed just in case that was where it was goingNope againThis is a wonderful book that fully captures the rhythms of life in a Norwegian hall in winter The class system the food stories it's all there The writing is flawless and the story unfolds with a steady pace neither rushing to give us MORE ACTION nor too slowly and causing boredom In short this is the sort of book about medieval Norway I wish I could have had when I was twelve Simply fabulous and I truly hope that there is either a seuel or that Kirby chooses to return to this setting He has wonderful eye for the details that make every day life fascinating and I would love to see him take on this time period again
