fortress in the eye of time, fortress of owls, fortress of eagles, fortress of dragons. a very long time ago, long before the time of men, galasien ruled. its world was wide with trade and commerce, and sustained by wizardry. But besides wizardry, there was native magic in the world. Elfwyn was the elder, nicknamed various things, but his caretaker, in the distant countryside of Amefel, had called him Otter, that being a safer name than the one his mother had given him. So Otter he had been for all his life, and the name well fi tted him: a dark, quick boy, wary and wild, as free and merry as an otter in a brook: Cefwyn had seen all that before the boy had ever crossed the river or taken up residence under his roof- much as he had restrained himself from loving this boy
Fortress of Ice book. But the main reason I didn't rate this book higher is because it ends so unsatisfactorily. Fortress of Dragons, perhaps because it wrapped up the major story arcs to that point, was more satisfying. The fact that this book is so open-ended tells me there will be more, but the wait may be long, from what I understand. Feb 18, 2016 Ian Bott rated it it was ok. Shelves: did-not-finish

Read "Fortress of Ice" by C. J. Cherryh with Rakuten Kobo. Two surprising allies have emerged to aid the embattled ruler in a struggle he must win: Cefwyn's two young sons. Fortress of Ice. by C. Cherryh.
For Fortress of Ice, Ms. Cherryh pickes up the pieces in her Fortress series and ages them 16 years older so that Cefwyn is now dealing with his son Aewyn and his bastard son Elfwyn (also called Otter in the book). The primary focus is from Elfwyn's perspective as he tries to blend with his father's people and develop a relationship with his half-brother (he has one and a good one) before magic and events take control of things. As with all of Ms. Cherryh's books, the characters are very active with one another and we see many differnt perspectives. If there is one weakness with this book it's the lack of a map. This would have been very nice to have while reading when Ms. Cherryh referenced different locations. As always, the descriptions are rich and deep and makes for a good follow-up on the earlier books.
