Page Turners OnlineTuesday November 17, 2020
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Page Turners is still online! Join us for November's choice, Frostborn by Lou Anders. This is the first book in the Thrones and Bones series.
In this Norse-flavored adventure, Anders pits a clever boy and a resourceful half-giant girl against numerous enemies and the hazards of the frozen wilderness. Twelve-year-old Karn has no desire to learn the family business of farming; he's much more interested in playing the strategy board game Thrones and Bones. Thianna's human ancestry makes her an oddity and object of derision among her full-blooded giant peers. Nevertheless, Karn and Thianna become reluctant allies and friends when trouble threatens: Karn runs afoul of a malevolent undead lord, while Thianna must flee from her human mother's people, who seek a long-lost artifact. Though a lot of elements are in play, Anders ties the novel's threads together in a neatly satisfying way, crafting a powerful, fast-paced tale. Cleverness is valued as much as martial abilities, swiftness of mind as much as strength of sword arm. The setting is rich, the characters well-defined, and the danger ever-paramount.
