The Secret Ministry of Frost

The Secret Ministry of Frost by Nick Lake. Pub. Simon and Schuster, 2009.

Light is a half-Inuit albino girl of some intelligence and probably about 13 or 14 years old.

Her father is a scientist who has disappeared in the North Pole area in suspicious and mysterious circumstances.

Light has a guardian called Butler who has strange powers and even stranger friends, one of whom has the body of a man and the head of a shark.

When Light finds her fathers journal she is encouraged by Butler to go looking for him in the Arctic where she links up with an Inuit boy Arnie. Together they have some of the most exciting and weirdest adventures I have ever read in a fantasy story, fantasies that are heavily linked into Inuit legend of Senta.

There is a rumour in the North that a powerful demon, Frost, wants to rid the world of humans because they are destroying the ecology of the planet. Nice sentiments, but Frost is not a nice demon, he is as hard and uncompromising as the Arctic environment in which the book is set.

The adventure is enthralling and action rivetting.

I couldn’t help thinking that this would make  fabulous film.

Aimed at teenage audience and good readers of fantasy.

Try this one it is totally different from  anything else I have read.
