The fifth and best novel yet in David Drake's acclaimed epic fantasy series, Lord of the Isles

Starting in Lord of the Isles and continuing in Queen of Demons , Servant of the Dragon , and Mistress of the Catacombs , David Drake has told the continuing, interlocking stories of Garric and Sharina, Cashel and Ilna, young brother and sister pairs who journey together from a small town to the capital. Their destiny is to reunite the island kingdoms of the Isles into one empire for the first time in a millennium. They seek to do this at a moment in history when the cosmic forces upon which magicians draw are at a thousand year peak. Wizards of even small learning are immensely powerful. Human greed and evil are reinforced by supernatural energies

In Goddess of the Ice Realm , as Garric and his retinue reach the island city of Carcosa, the wizard Tenoctris perceives a powerful supernatural assault directed against them. Ilna and her beloved, Chalcus, are sent to investigate a magical threat to shipping in the north. Cashel is translated into another world by evil magic, and Sharina to yet another. All of them face deadly dangers and overcome them before they are again united during the terrifying and dramatic climax.

Filled with action, startling revelations, romance and sorcery, Goddess of the Ice Realm is epic fantasy at its exciting best.

After Mistress of the Catacombs, I expected another long, drawn-out repetitive plot where any of the four main characters are transported to a different world/time period. And while this did happen, Goddess of the Ice Realm was faster paced and much more enjoyable to read!
