This is a lyrical work, filled with the traditional stories of the tribes, and it reminded me of some of the Norse tales. It took the form of a journey to a final show-down and, although drenched in bloody battle, the characters are warm and beguiling. Fantasy at its best. I really enjoyed this book.
War is one of the many mysteries I struggle to understand. I do realize that humans are incredibly territorial. As a breed, we seem to want to expand our own lands and ideas of right and wrong, even if that means killing other humans. The Skral, Sharan and Gai Ren are no exception to this. What started out as one people developed into competing tribes and nations. At regular intervals they would attack their neighboring countries, city-states or tribal competitors. When the Ice Lord arrives on the scene a few people from each nationality escapes and they are taken to the islands of the Skral. These, usually competing, people band together in an attempt to dethrone the Ice Lord without destroying every last remnant of themselves and their cultures. Changing alliances. What a bizarre phenomenon and terribly confusing to my asperger brain. One of my thoughts on reading this was the same as the thought whenever I hear of this happening in the real world: "How long will it take before they are killing each other again?" Historically speaking, not very long at all.
"Song of the Ice Lord" is in many ways a terrifying story. Horror it ain't, not in any kind of manner. But its way of nailing the future of nations (historical and current) makes me want to shout: "can't we just be friends, please, and stop all of this destruction". A girl can dream.
The flow of words was very different to the other stories in this series. Most of that probably has to do with the insertion of the three short stories, all three important in the context of the over-all story.
