The forge in the forest
Rohan, Michael Scott.
Adult Fiction ROHAN

Comments  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

The encroaching glaciers of an Ice Age provide the dramatic background for Rohan's fantasy trilogy, the Winter of the World. This second volume picks up magesmith Elof Valantor in the city of Kerbryhaine, recently beseiged by the Ekwesh. Though hampered by politics and urban prejudice, Elof and regal Keryn Kermorvan lead a small band to seek aid. Their odyssey through the Great Forest, from which few ever return, becomes a string of Homeric terrors and wonders. The travelers are prey to saber-toothed tigers, receive help from the forest folk, are seduced by woodland sylphs, pay a visit to the island of the dead and, in the most interesting sequence, have an extended stay in the Halls of Summer, a land of the Lotus Eaters where the heroes of legend still live and the godlike Lord of the Forest rules supreme. Rohan labors mightily but this is seldom more than a reshuffling of Tolkien motifs. (November 24) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Elof, the magesmith who dealt a crushing blow to the forces of the Ice endangering his world, sets off once more on a questthis time to find and unite the people of the legendary Eastern lands with their Sothran descendants. This second volume of a trilogy expands upon the vivid fantasy world introduced in The Anvil of Ice. This will appeal to fans of high fantasy. JC (c) Copyright 2010.
