DEBUT Dawsyn Sabar is the last of her family, with the rest of her “den of girls” succumbing to the harsh life on The Ledge. Dawsyn’s life is plagued by the ice, the threat of falling into the chasm surrounding the mountain peak, and the beasts known as the Glacians, who pick off villagers as human sacrifices. When Dawsyn is carried off to the Glacian ice prison, she is given a terrible choice and chances survival down the mountain in hopes of escape. Using her wits and skills with an axe to claw her way down the mountain and through the Glacians in her path, Dawsyn will learn there is much more going on than anyone realized. With the help of a surprisingly handsome half-Glacian, Dawsyn will try to rectify all the wrongs perpetrated against her family and her village.
VERDICT McEwan, a popular figure on BookTok, has written an ambitious fantasy debut. The plot and worldbuilding are thoroughly fleshed out and make this novel a great start to the “Glacian Trilogy.”
