Reviews

"The Ice Dragon brims with the magic and beauty of Martin's velvety rich prose. [...] Audiences of all ages will be enchanted by the fantastic delivery of this timeless tale of heroes and dragons, the strength of a family, and the coming-of-age of a very special girl. It is a great book to share." --VOYA

"[T]his fantasy is a slim but rich introduction to the genre, one that should appeal to both boys and girls." --School Library Journal

"A must-buy for all Martin fans." --SFRevu

"Like the type, Royo's lush ink-and-wash illustrations are all set in blue, heightening the icy feel. They sprawl across spreads, complementing the generously leaded text and providing ample resting place for readers' eyes. Despite the war and destruction, this is very much a children's story, told in a distantly folkloric tone that evokes the stylings of Jane Yolen. Adult fans will find neither gore nor sex, but kids will find an evocative original fairy tale with an unexpectedly complex protagonist." --Kirkus Reviews
