Product description

Review

A good read . . . Much fascinating research is evident here . . . a grittily solid background of impending Ice Age. The characters are nicely done, and the final confrontation between Elof and the representative of the Ice powers has a nifty magical twist . . . Rohan clears the major hurdle of a trilogy opening; he actually makes me want to read book two! Stay tuned.--White Dwarf

With this engaging fantasy, Rohan's planned Winter of the World trilogy is off to a marvellous start . . . Writing with an element of suspense and a taut, lyrically haunting style that captures the bleakness of his setting, Rohan concludes the story in a way that is thoroughly satisfying, yet leaves the reader eager for the second volume of this series.--Publishers Weekly

Scott Rohan has an extraordinary gift for making every scene come to life with vivid reality

Rohan has picked up where Tolkien left off and then some. He has a sure touch with the mythology of Northern Europe, handles the high style beautifully, and in the smithcraft of his protagonist finds a fresh metaphor for magic.--The New York Review of Science Fiction

Rohan creates a haunting sense of mythology rather than fantasy. This remarkable novel reveals a gifted writer of stories, and pages turn as if by magic.

I consider The Anvil of Ice to be an outstanding piece of fantasy fiction, leaving one eager to welcome the second book in the series.

A wonderful story. Michael Scott Rohan has conceived an interesting and original fantasy concept. It is sure to gather a strong following.

A very good and a very powerful writer . . . The concept of the Ice itself as the ultimate enemy is a remarkable feat . . . strong and intricate characterizations . . . compelling reading.

A skilfully told tale, blending myth and prehistory into a carefully wrought world where the conflict of Ice Age forces is focussed in the person of an enigmatic smith. It begins a trilogy which will be worth following. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
