I see you tag stuff about the ice plague! What is it about?
I’ve just gone through like 10 pages looking for a summary of The Ice Plague and couldn’t find one, so I’m gonna do a quick (scrappy) summary here.
10 years on from the end of The Court of Five Thrones, and the Season of Turning is not done with the world.
For reasons unknown, a sentient plague of ice is birthed into the fae world, and begins to seek out fae to destroy them. The ice doesn’t respond to fire or heat, and grows larger, the more it destroys. The most powerful fae in the world are rushing to try and staunch the glacier that moves with the speed of a burst dam, but no magic touches it either.
Eran Iliakambar, Seelie son of Ifir, and suffering from great loss, becomes obsessed with finding the cause of the ice plague, in order to destroy it. A spell tattooed into his skin leads him to the young Unseelie Mosk Manytrees - a damaged, cursed, almost mute dryad who admits to causing the ice plague and then says nothing else, and seems too weak to be responsible for anything at all.
Determined to hold him accountable, Eran takes him first to the Seelie Court - and, finding no help there - takes him to the Unseelie Court. From there, Augus and Gwyn decide to set out with Eran and Mosk to get to the bottom of Mosk’s curse, the ice plague itself, and the new villains who are intent on ruling far more than a single Court.
It’s a three book series (er, so is Game Theory technically, it just means it’ll be long), it’s quest format (i.e. we’re on a ROAD TRIP) and it will be predominantly from Eran’s and Mosk’s perspectives, with some Gwyn and Augus in there as well. :)
