Book review: Mårten Melins Isdrottningen – when fantasy steps into everyday life

It is teeming with magical powers in the children, youth and fantasy literature nowadays, but few are able to handle them with the same matter of course as Mårten Melin. He writes about very ordinary Swedish contemporaries, the mainstream school environment and common everyday worries, where the magical power blends in surprisingly well.

if the thirteen year old Cina, that is quite lonely. A day in the forest, she is something very strange, and discovers afterwards that she can shoot the ice with your fingers. An odd magical power, as she just when she has decided to jump off skating.

But isskjutandet is no easy the ability. She drops the freezing water at the most inopportune occasions, as a kind of extreme chilly sweaty. Impractical if you keep in a journal, for example. To begin with, she can not control the power, before she manages to figure out how it works and start using it against the school bullies.

becoming well known in the city as Isdrottningen, the superhero who helps out where needed, defending the weak and puts busarna. She is careful to dress so that no one will recognize her, which, of course, strengthens the image of her as the mysterious superhero.

Which are not completely easy to manage. Soon, Cina had problems with who really is evil and who is good, who really needs help and what to do with their own anger when it grows too large.

an extremely prolific author: since his debut in 2003, he has managed to give out over seventy-five books. He has also quickly become a popular choice among teachers and librarians, who know that the majority of children (especially middle school age) will be completely swallowed up by his stories, which is always both exciting and firmly rooted in both mythological and psychological.

”Fucking Lucia” in 2007, he has used a lot of magic, and after the popular trilogy of Skogsbingelskolan, school for children with special abilities (”Transfigured” In 2011, ”I am Love” in 2012 and ”Pixis book” 2013), he has written a number of stand-alone sequel about the children with other abilities, where ”Isdrottningen” is the latest. It has become a private magical universe, just as in the u.s. serietidningsimperiet the Marvel Comics world of superheroes. To emphasize the near relationship to view Cinas little sister ”Isdrottningen” classic comics from the Marvel Comics.

so exciting that I will find myself longing for a tv show with these ”X-men”. Magic is really a extremely good form to portray complex human emotions.
