Karn’s destiny is to take over his family farm in Norrongard. But he doesn’t want to; He rather play the board game Thrones and Bones.

Thianna is half human,  half frost giantess. She isn’t taken seriously as a gaint because she is too short.  But she’s also too tall to be a human.

When family issues drive Karn and Thianna into the woods to run for their lives, their destiny is connected and they must fight for their life against a 1500 year old dragon,  a two faced uncle and a undead warrior.

This was a really good read.  Firstly, what I liked about this book was the fact the interaction I felt immediately when beginning the book.  Karn is a believable character despite the fantasy setting. He doesn’t want to follow in his dad’s footsteps but he isn’t rude or disrespectful about it. I like that. The whole trend of really rude children is annoying.

Thianna is different.  She has this huge chip on her shoulder because she wants to be accepted as a giant. Because of this chip she is extremely competitive and quick to overactive and to allow her emotions take over. But I liked her.

What I didn’t like about the story was the rush. I like a fast paced story but I felt that the author was trying to get so many action scenes in s short amount of time. Also the story was predictable.

But beyond that I liked the characters and I liked the story overall. 4Pickles
