The Anvil of Ice(The Winter of the World, #1)
The Anvil of Ice is the first chronicle of The Winter of the World, a history of ancient magic, mystery and enchantment, of light and darkness, a great quest with an epic conclusion, and a hero whose deeds would live on in myth and legend.
In the Northlands, beleaguered by the ever-encroaching Ice and the marauding Ekwesh, a young cowherd, Alv, saved from the raiders by the mysterious Mastersmith, discovers in himself an uncanny power to shape metal – but it is a power that may easily be turned to evil ends. Alv flees the Mastersmith and embarks on the quest to find both his own destiny and a weapon that will let him stand against the power of the Ice.
The Anvil of Ice is the first book of Winter of the World series.
This book was recommended to me a couple of years ago, so I bought the whole series. It was a good purchase.
I liked The Anvil of Ice. This book isn't quite as good as some of the fantasy books I've read, but it's interesting and entertaining.
