Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill
When King Redrought is killed by an invading army in warfare, Princess Thirrin, 14, must take charge of the kingdom and save her subjects from imminent destruction. Forming new alliances with the were-folk, the vampires, and the forest kings, she and her warlock advisor battle for their lives and the lives of their family and friends.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this page-turner (it has a little something for everyone -- magic, vampires & were-wolves, war, adventure, a bit of romance...) and am absolutely looking forward to reading the next in the chronicles, I found the writing to be a bit weak at time with unnecessary comments and extra subjective adjectives. Nevertheless, a grand story with definite richness!
