The Snow-Walker's son lives at the end of the earth. Spawned by the ice-witch, Gudrun, he has not been seen him for years. Banished by Gudrun to join him, Jessa and Thorkil fear the worst but find instead a creature whose strength is more than a match for his mother's - only good, rather than evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars an outstanding trilogy - read it! 1 Sep 2001
Anyone fascinated by the Vikings or Norse mythology will love this trilogy, which starts with the Snow Walker's Son. Fisher tells a gripping tale of how the evil witch-queen Gudrun exiles her small son Kari to a fortress in the North, and sends two other children to join him when their fathers have failed in an attempted coup. Jessa, the heroine, is braver and cleverer than her companion, but they are joined by a skald or minstrel who clearly knows more about Kari than he lets on. For Kari is not what rumour has him to be, and has powers of his own....
I've recommended this trilogy to countless children of 8 and upwards, and my daughter has read it twice. Thrilling and beautifully written it deserves to be much better-known.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb novel 18 Aug 2000
By A Customer
I was actually taught by Catherine Fisher in primary school. She was one of the best teachers in there. I was addicted to all of her novels, especially the Snow Walker's Son trilogy. I could not put the books down! I think that Catherine Fisher has a mind boggling mind and the way she portrayed this in her books is amazing. This story is 10/10 and I would recommend it to children and adults alike!

4.0 out of 5 stars Neil's Megafantastic Review 16 Nov 2002
This one was written before the Book of the Crow, and isn't as well written. Nonetheless, it's still very good. I like the setting - icy place, kind of like Cool, Cool Mountain on Mario 64. Catherine Fisher always has an interesting setting or premise to her books. No generic fantasy hokum here.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling Fantasy 15 Jun 2003
I read this book in one day just because it is impossible to put down, Catherine Fisher catches you and puts you in the world of magic and fantasy. The characters and ambitious and the plot is original. The ending makes you have to go out and get the sequal straight away. Teenegers would find it a great read but adults should read it aswell because of the form of writing. A great book

This story was fantastic. The characters were interesting and Catherine Fisher really created a really deep, fictional world that you could get immersed in. The writing and descriptions were wonderful and the insight into Scandanavian/Norse/Viking culture was very interesting.
