The whimsy of Nevermoor meets the mythical world-building of Neil Gaiman in this unlikely hero's quest to find his parents--and find the home he's always longed for. In a snow-covered land where monsters rule the icy tundra, only song weavers hold the power to control these vicious giants. But for centuries song weavers have been the subject of suspicion--how can those who hold so much power be trusted? Ever since his parents were lost on a pathfinding expedition, Ash has spent his life as an outcast. As a budding song weaver, his village marked him as a potential threat, even though all he wants to do is protect them. Eager to find his place in the world, he and his cantankerous yeti caretaker seek passage on the Frostheart: a ship-like sleigh whose mission is to explore faraway lands. There he meets a fast-talking, spunky navigator, a walrus captain with a peg leg who runs a tight sleigh, and a mysterious traveler who encourages him to hone his song. But can Ash's song weaving save the Frostheart from the monsters hiding under the ice? Or will his untamed powers put his newfound friends in jeopardy? Chockfull of heart and humor, the journey of the Frostheart will win over listeners and gatekeepers looking for a rich, gateway fantasy listen.… (plus d'informations)

A review I wrote in 2020:

Frostheart by Jamie Littler (4.5 stars)

A brilliant fantasy adventure, with magic and humour, friendship and bravery, set in the Frozen
wilds of the north. Ash lives in a barricaded town of the Fira people, cut off from other settlements
by the horrendous Leviathans, monsters that live beneath the Snow Sea. Ash is awaiting the
return of his parents. His softly sings a forbidden lullaby to remember them by, but singing is not
only forbidden in Fira; it is feared. Song Weavers are despised.

When Hurtlers attack a visiting Pathfinder sleigh, and all seems lost, Ash can’t help but try to save
them, revealing his magic powers. He is outcast from his settlement, together with Tobu, his giantsized
guardian, and finds a place on the Frostheart sleigh, the Pathfinders seeing a use for Ash’s
incredible gift. The explorers need his help but can they also help him find his parents….?

Illustrations by the author break up the text a little and add to the story, which can be helpful for
progressing readers. Very much in the same adventure fantasy bracket as authors like Abi
Elphinstone, Vashti Hardy, Jenny McLachlan, Cressida Cowell, Catherine Fisher, Thomas Taylor,
Peter Bunzl and more. Highly recommended. ( )

In the frozen north, in the Fira Stronghold, Ash is feared and mistrusted because he's a Song Weaver; it is believed that Song Weavers can control the dangerous Leviathans and set them on unsuspecting people. His only ally is his grumpy yeti guardian Tobu. When the sleigh Frostheart calls in for emergency repairs, Ash sees his chance to escape in order to find his parents, who left him with the Fira when he was only a baby.

For a debut novel, this tale of adventure and friendship is amazingly confident, and the artwork (by the author) is simply stunning. Aimed at a readership of about nine- to eleven-year-olds, the twists and turns of the story are just right, though for a grown-up some of the passages are somewhat predictable. There are some fast-paced and exciting action sequences, and the author also tackles some bigger themes like loneliness, belonging, loyalty, kindness and compassion. My son loved it, and the second volume is already lined up to be enjoyed together. ( )

A fun wild adventure that surely keeps the reader entertained. Also Yeti guardians are amazing and I would love one haha.

The entire story keeps your attention and pulls you in right from the start. The lore and world building is actually pretty solid for a middlegrade book, and just enough was revealed to keep you wanting to learn more in future installments. All the characters are very well written, while as an adult certain aspects were predictable, but seeing as this was written for children, if I was a child I feel they would have taken me by surprise. It also pulled at my heart strings a few times with the Yeti, so I love a book that can do that.

Also I enjoyed the art all through out the book, it really helps bring the characters to life seeing how they are drawn and what they are going through.

Will be looking forward to book 2 next year. ( )
