Blade of Fire by Stuart Hill
Like the prequel Cry of the Icemark, this is a war-torn, high-energy fantasy of a small remote country in the northern lands. Twenty years after Thirrin and her allies defeat the armies of the Polypontian Empire, their commander is back with more armies and a desire for blood. It takes all of Thirrin's skills to fend off the attacks. Meanwhile, she sends her son abroad with an exile group of her people and is being attacked from within her own fortress.
Again, a gripping story, full of action and feeling -- and the power of the story helps make up for the writing, which is somewhat weak with the subjective voice of the author coming through frequently. Nevertheless, a great read for fantasy lovers or those who just love big action.
