This is being touted as being in the same league with John Flanagan and Rick Riordan. It does have the feeling of a Flanagan story. Frostborn is a great adventure of a young boy and a girl who is half human/half giant. The strange horn that was found with her mother is given to her but she has no idea what it's purpose is. For Karn, the idea of being a farmer in his father's footsteps is not what he had planned for his life. A life of adventure, travel, and board games was where he saw his life going. A traitor lives in their midst and soon has split the family apart for his gain. The boys and girls will love this. Our giantess, Thianna, is a very brave adventurer and saves Karn mostly from himself. This will be a series so it will be fun to see where Thianna ends up next. -Sue Mason, Waucoma Bookstore, Hood River, Oregon
