Format: Paperback
Climactic summit of the tale of Elof the Mastersmith. One of those rare books that leave you feeling breathless from it's sweep, and lifted up by the vision of what human nobility could be, like Tolkein. Profoundly moving. Wholly strange, yet told so well that it is utterly plausible. Ties together so many strands into a well-proportioned whole!

A thrilling climax to the Winter of the World trilogy. This book moves at a great pace as we follow Elof into a final showdown with the powers of the ice. Michael Scott Rohan is a great story-teller and certainly must be placed in the highest echelon of fantasy writers!

Format: Hardcover
As the final part of the "Winter of the World" fantasy series, this doesn't pull many punches. Elof Valantor, the main protagonist, is shown as both heroic and flawed. Most of his problems he brings upon himself, generally for the best of motives, and the tension of the story lies in how he strives to overcome them. To write more of a description of the storyline might spoil it for other readers so I won't but it is well worth the reading. A word of caution - it is not perhaps suitable for the younger reader though teens would enjoy it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book in very large chunks, since I couldn't sit and read it in one go.

This is one of the best fantasy stories I have ever read, and the story development leads you on through a chain of places, events and characters who will make you want more and more.

I won't spoil the story for you, but there are a lot of twists and turns in the plot, which is a very long journey. You learn things which make a lot of sense, and tie up the massive trilogy into a neat, if not entirely expected finale. There are daring journeys by land, sea, and air, and at the end, if you aren't reaching out for the second trilogy (a prequel set in much earlier times), you haven't been reading the same book as me.

Whilst going for this one, you might well want to try Run to the Stars, which is the book that got me into Michael Scott Rohan in the first place. Science fiction rather than fantasy, but just as skillfully crafted, and a very good read!
