Thrones and Bones: Frostborn, written by Lou Anders, is one of my current favorite books. It is based on Norse mythology.
Karn is the hero. He is supposed to take over his family’s farm, but he just wants to play the board game Thrones and Bones. Thianna is the heroine. She is half human, half frost giant. She’s taller than most humans and shorter than most frost giants. All she wants is to fit in with the frost giants. But then Karn awakens an undead warrior that has connections to his father’s sword, Whitestorm. And soldiers from Thianna’s mother’s mysterious past invade her village searching for a magical artifact with strange powers. After that, Karn and Thianna must work together to outsmart the warrior, the soldiers, Karn’s evil uncle, a giant dragon, some wyverns, and a few smelly trolls.
I like this book because its heroes try to solve problems using different strategies, and they learn that there’s not just one way to solve a problem.
