The magical beasts of Avantia are under the power of an evil wizard. Tom journeys to the wilds of the frozen north, searching for Nanook the snow monster. Can he survive the ice and snow, and set the beast free?


That's decided. If I have a baby girl (not that my girlfriend is pregnant) I shall not read this book or the last three. Why? Because this book shall teach her that women are frail and cannot take care of themselves and boys/men have to take care of them. By Týr's wooden arm. This book has women as a cliche. Is like I write four books and all of them Jews would be good at money, black people would win a physical contest, an asian good at math or a white guy... well never exceeding at nothing but neither sucking it. 

Let me explain, in this novel the gang are back to the north, this time to defeat Nanook, their fiercest adversary (another cliche - why the last one is always thought as the most difficult?). This time is Nanook the Yeti Snow Monster. In Inuit mythology he is the master of the bears. 

Yet again, our main character is on a secret mission because nobody should know that this mythical beasts exist but it seems that everyone do. Part of the novel is the journey to meet the Beast but only the last 20 or 30 pages are dedicated to that. 

My main problem with novel is the same of the last four. It falls into cliche and they are all very much alike. Boy, the son of Hero, is on a Quest given by an Wizard that no grown man with years of war and training could have accomplished. As always Girl gets into Trouble and Boy saves the Girl and defeats the Beast. Villagers are Happy and can go on their ignorant Lives. I have eighteen of these books (It was quite a catch). Let us see if the last one of this series makes the same mistakes. 2/10
