The Ice People 1 - Spellbound. The Legend of the Ice People series has already captivated 39 million readers across Europe. The year is 1581. Silje is only seventeen and the plague has already struck her entire family. Famished and freezing and with two orphaned children to care for, she approaches the bonfires outside Trondheim to get some warmth into her body. Strangely enough, only one person offers to help Silje in the hour of need: Tengel, a man of the Ice People, whom Silje finds brutish and intimidating – but also immensely charming. The story of the Ice People is a moving legend of love and supernatural powers, a tale of the essential struggle between good and evil.
