The Ice House with Tim Clare

Ever since Tim Clare’s first novel ‘The Honours’ appeared in 2015, Mr B’s – and in particular our Emma – have been dedicated fans. Rarely has a young protagonist immediately made such an impression on team members and customers alike. If you were able to chemically combine the strong-willed resilience and loyalty of True Grit’s Mattie Ross, with the curiosity and resourcefulness of Lyra from ‘His Dark Materials’’, we’re pretty sure that the result would be Delphine, and now she’s back in Tim’s new novel ‘The Ice House’.
Things have certainly changed since the end of ‘The Honours’. Delphine is now an old woman, but she still remembers being a child of war, fighting for her life, and what the terrifying creatures from another world stole from her. Now, in that strange realm, someone is waiting for her, and Delphine must prepare to fight not only for herself, but for the survival of two very different worlds.
If you have yet to meet Delphine for the first time, ‘The Ice House’ is a perfect place to start, written as a stand-alone semi-sequel. Full of Tim’s wonderful poetic flare, and otherworldly twists and turns, both books are far from your average fantasy novel. Tim is not only a novelist, but a performance poet and musician who runs the hit podcasts ‘Death of a 1,000 Cuts’ and the ‘Couch to 80K Boot Camp’ featuring advice and challenges for aspiring writers, as well as interviews with a whole host of brilliant authors. Join us in the new, expanded Mr B’s for an evening we’ve long been waiting for!
