The Fortress in the Frost (ebook)

(2 customer reviews)

Get ready to be transported to a world of magic and adventure in “The Fortress in the Frost”, a thrilling fantasy novel set in a world unlike any you’ve encountered before.

In a world where Europe is plagued by enchanted forests known as the Tumble, where sorcerers and beastmen roam free, Taliesin, a low-born officer, must lead his band of cut-throats and thieves into battle against all odds. With murderers from the worst gutters in the Realm marching behind him and the forces of the mainland against him, Taliesin will face the ultimate test of his strength and resolve as he battles his way across the demon-haunted landscape.

This is not just a story about a man fighting for his life and his honor, it’s a tale about the power of the human spirit in the face of impossible odds. With action, magic, and a touch of darkness, “The Fortress in the Frost” is a must-read for fans of epic fantasy and adventure.

So, grab your sword and join Taliesin on his journey to the face of hell itself!


It is the final years of the 18th century, but a world which few would recognise. The people of Europe shelter in small islands of safety, havens from the enchanted wilderness – the strange boundless forests people call the Tumble.

It is across this demon-haunted landscape that the low-born officer Taliesin must lead his men, caught up in the deadliest of intrigues while fighting wars for a noble class which despises him.

With vicious murderers from the worst gutters in the Realm marching behind him, and the forces of the most powerful nations of the mainland arrayed against him, the odds are stacked against Taliesin. Heavily.

Yet he will fight on, battling armies, sorcerers, assassins, beastmen and cross into the face of hell itself.

Not for loyalty, or grudging respect for his scheming monarch – not even for the small mountain of silver the Island Queen has promised him if he succeeds.

But because fighting is all he and his pressed band of cut-throats and thieves have ever known.

The second and final part of the Triple-Realm duology, and sequel to For the Crown and the Dragon.

    I was blown away by Stephen’s The Fortress in the Frost. I am always on the lookout for a book that can transport me to another world and this one did not disappoint. what really drew me in was the richly imagined world that he has created. The enchanted wilderness of the Tumble is both beautiful and terrifying and the various creatures and cultures that inhabit it are fascinating to learn about. And the battles and intrigues that Taliesin faces are nothing short of epic. Taliesin may be a cutthroat and a thief but he’s also a complex character with a strong sense of honor and a desire to do what’s right and he’s forced to confront his own limitations and the cost of his actions.

    This is the second and last installment of the Triple-Realm duology, and it is the sequel to the novel For the Crown and the Dragon. The author does a great job of bringing the reader into the story by describing the grim and frightening world it takes place in. The plot is interesting the characters are intriguing, and the action sequences are spectacular. This is a fantastic book for anyone who enjoy exciting adventures and fantastic worlds.

While I'd much rather you buy direct from me, I understand that's not always possible. Here's the link(s) to the billionaire tech-opolies, if you must go with them. It's an affiliate link, so I might get paid a few pence on week days that contain the letter 'Y' in a harvest moon when they're feeling kind. Maybe.
