Book three in the Flurry the Bear series, The Throne of Frost by J.S. Skye is another spellbinding read in a series that should be gaining a lot of fans among readers of children's fantasy and sci-fi. The inhabitants of Mezarim are suffering from inclement weather, with temperatures dropping to freezing point. The worst could befall the citizens of Ursus. Flurry’s prospects of fun with friends are marred when his sister and another bear cub go missing. Alongside Noah and a wolf called Vallidore, Flurry sets out for answers, but he isn’t prepared for what awaits him and his friends. He will be heading straight to Jack Frost’s lair and will have to face a powerful polar army. Jack Frost is a tyrant who is more than ready for Flurry. Does Flurry stand a chance this time?
I couldn’t help thinking of a children’s movie while reading this captivating story in the series. Flurry is a character that is well-imagined and accomplished to perfection, a daring bear cub that will attract both young and older readers. J.S. Skye has the rare gift of bringing readers into the world of bear cubs and making them feel a strange familiarity with the cubs, as though they were walking among friends. The author’s crafting of setting is impeccable and readers will enjoy vivid images like the blizzard and the white snow, without forgetting the treacherous landscapes. The Throne of Frost is well-plotted and intelligently paced, the kind of story that grabs the reader from the start and forces them to leave aside every other task until they turn the last page. But when you are done, you’ll be hungry for the next book in the series.
