Icefalcon’s Quest by Barbara Hambly

I’m a little late posting because I just didn’t have the energy to do a blog post last night. I’m rehearsing for a new play, and had a late rehearsal last night. By the time I got home, I just couldn’t muster the energy to get a book review written up. But, I’ve got time and energy now. I’m writing up an old book review. Apparently, I picked this book up at the library’s book sale. I read a lot of Hambly as a kid (my aunt, whose science fiction and fantasy collection I frequently browsed, had several of her books) and figured it would be a safe and enjoyable read.

Published: 1998

Genre: fantasy

Length: 368 pages

Summary: Prince Tir is kidnapped from Dare’s Keep and the legendary hunter Icefalcon follows him into the Real World. Icefalcon tracks Tir to another keep buried under a glacier. Vair and Betkis use Old World technology to get into the Keep, but they need Tir’s ancestral knowledge to find the portal. However, the Keep is haunted. Even so, Icefalcon manages to get Tir out, with the help of some friends.

Final thoughts: A gripping tale – I had a hard time putting it down, even though this is the fifth book in the series (I didn’t realize that going into the book). The world and characters were fleshed out enough that I got their flavor, without overwhelming me with details.

Title comes from: the plot – Icefalcon set out to find Tir.

Reading challenges fulfilled: none since this is a review from a previous year (which explains the extremely short summary and final thoughts)
