The bitter winter has lasted far too long and won't loosen its deadly hold on the land. As food stores dwindle, the people of Rin flee to the warmer coast. Rowan and two friends -- and a shadow -- journey up the mountain that towers over Rin to seek the source of the unending cold. Rowan knows from past experience that the mountain is unpredictable and harbors many dangers. But now waves of freezing air stream down its sides. And ferocious ice creepers -- giant eyeless creatures with gaping jaws and teeth like shards of ice -- slither from its shadow eager to devour any warm being. Will Rowan and his friends somehow be able to bring spring -- and life -- back to the land? Can they survive the perils of the mountain and the attacks of the ice creepers?...

    Rowan and the Ice Creepers (Rowan of Rin, #5), Emily Rodda

    Okay, apparently nobody has bothered to actually review this book, so let me make this clear: This is exactly the same as Rowan and the Ice Creepers, just the UK version of the book! So if you live in the US, don't bother ordering it from the UK, just buy Rowan and the Ice Creepers. For those of you who do live in the UK, Rowan of the Bukshah is excellent. It's the story of a young boy who used to be thought useless by his people, the people of Rin, and now is revered--but only because he saved them from destruction so many times. Sheba the wise woman gives him the key to her prophecies, and sends him to the mountain with a few friends to end the longest winter in memory.Despite its excellence, you won't understand much of it unless you read the first four books. I made this mistake. It makes way more sense if you read Rowan of Rin, Rowan and the Travellers, Rowan and the Keeper of the Crystal, and Rowan and the Zebak.

    I chose this book because i found the book cover on the front cool with the ice dragons and as I read the blurb on the back i got hooked in to the book.The category on the bingo board was the male main character, I usually read books where the are male.A character i found interesting was Rowan, what I like about this character is how he was different from the other boys in his village and knew things that helped his group when he goes on journeys.A thing I learnt from the book is how a ordinary boy can make a big difference in the whole village, and applies to real life.My favourite quote from the book was "fear is a illusion you must find your way around or it will stab you in the back" meaning they had to face the dangers they would come across in the journey of the mountain.

    I finally read this last book in the Rowan series. I've loved this story since I first read it as a kid. This book as just as good, and has an excellent ending that fits in so well. It's not cheesy, it's a little cliché in parts, but it's a great, simple, story.Read this series. Start with Rowan of Rin.

    These books are really good. I wish I'd started them in order, though. Emily Rodda is really good at creating complex riddles, which is one of the reasons why this book was so good.

    have youever read a book and said, "FOR FUCKS SAKE HOW FUCKING DENSE CAN YOU BE YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT YOU ARE DUMBER THAN A FUCKING ROCK"this is how i felt reading Rowan of Rinthere is a witch in this series, and she is constantly frustrated because everyone around her are stupid pieces of shit. she is the only reason i put up with the books because i felt what she must feel.she was constrained by her magic to give the "heroes" vague predictions of the future, and every time she did, what the stupid heads did? oh they said "that makes no sense, lets do the absolute contrary to whatever the song said"after two, three times proved that the songs gave them guidance on their quest did they decided to take them into consideration?oh no, not that, the witch is dumb and mean, and she wants to trick us with stupid songs, lets not do what she saidand then they fear them because she gets mad every time they come asking for help and the hero, oh, the hero is the worst of all, this fucking piece of shit with a brain smaller than a bee's had to follow her songs for 5 different books, do you think he would ever learn to trust them and figure what they meant? NO, HE DIDN'T and that ends my review of Rowan of Rin, 10/10

    This final tale was full of heroics that the little hero that could proved that being a hero comes in many shapes and sizes.Well told and I'll miss Rowan very much.

    Rodda does not disappoint.When you reach the end of a series, there are very high expectations. It's difficult to write something that encapsulates the spirit of the series whilst trying to accomplish something that is different from the rest of the series without seeming rehashed. Rodda balances this splendidly. Not only is the setting just like book 1, but many of the same themes and character roles are played out. Character development parallels can be made between Shaaran and Rowan, of Jonn and Norris, of Zeel and Bronden. But yet each character has a slightly different role to play.I also thought this book was incredibly grim - more so than any of the other books. Unlike the first two books, I really did feel that the stakes were incredibly high. Most of the time, Rowan and his friends are barely escaping with their lives, instead of brushing themselves off going "well THAT happened". There were so many things going on that elevated the threat level to the main character and to the others as a whole, that I genuinely felt real concern that people were going to die. And people DID die, there was a character death in the first third of the book!The entire world-building answer to the biggest questions brought up at different points in the series was brilliantly written. The answer to the ice creepers didn't feel contrived or deus ex machina at all. In fact, it felt quite natural, and made sense. I'm ashamed I doubted Rodda, she's very clever not just with riddles but how the riddle relates.I was so pleased at the end of the series. I feel completely satisfied and totally glad I gave it another chance after the first book. It really is the weakest of the series, which is too bad for a first book. But assuming people continue with it as I did, they will be rewarded.

    the book rowan and the ice creepers by Emily Rodda is a adventure book about how the people of Rin are having a endless winter caused by creatures called ice creepers. The people of rin have wild stories of how they think they forgot about the mountain and that its causing the endless winter. Rowan and three friends Shaaran, Norris and Zeel have to follow these creatures called Bukshah into the mountains to try to stop the cold time.I thought this books was good because my favroite type of book is adventure.I gave this book 4 stars because there was a little lack of detail but other then that it was pretty good.i would recommend this book because there are lots of diffrent creatures, its about the past time where they didn't have all the stuff we have today. the characters in the story where really interesting like shaaran is some sort of wizard because she made these coats and they where so warm because they where made with fire. I hope if you reed this book you will like it!

Once again Sheba gets involved and once again she proves helpful in more ways than one. Rowan must follow the Bukshah up the mountain to help the get rid of the dreaded ice creepers which are keeping winter hovering over Rin. Aided by the friends he picked up in the land of the Zebak and the ever adventurous Zeel, Rowan is once again involved in saving the day.

    This is a great book! Thank goodness I finally finished the series.It's viewed as a children's book but all ages will like it. It only got grouped as one because it doesn't contain any sexual/extremely violent content but then again, it's not like a book is incomplete without it.Emily Rodda is a master storyteller and she's got a great mind for poetry. I didn't realize that she had written Deltora Quest (which my friends have read) but now I'm dying to get my hands on that series!

    Wow... Just... wow. Rowan and the Ice Creepers, the last book in the Rowan of Rin series is surprisingly very mature and serious for a children's book. I didn't expect the finale to be so dark and grim! There's lots of death, problems, and difficult situations... Everything about it left me speechless. I'm a little disappointed that the ending ended so soon. *laughs*What a great series this was to read.~

    I've always loved the bukshah, and this book finally puts them in the forefront. Rowan's maturity is really evident here; he's no longer the whining, hesitant boy that we met in Rowan of Rin, but capable of taking charge and doing what needs to be done. It's a great adventure; a shame there's an obvious tone of finality at the end. Is this the last Rowan book?

    This book is excellent. It is the same story as Rowan of the Bukshah, so get one or the other, not both. Read the first four before this one, though, or you won't understand it well. The first four are VERY important to the storyline, especially Rowan of the Zebak.

    Emily Rodda's Rowan of Rin is a great YA series.. The difference in the names of the creatures sucks you in and your trying to figure what in the real world is it.. Loved it.. The turn about on who the hero is, its amazing..

    I absolutely loved this series! This last book was by far the best, and the revelation Rowan and his friends find at the end of their journey is amazing. I was not expecting it at all. I didn't want the series to end, and I hope that one day Emily Rodda will continue Rowan's story.

    With this book, we are seeing Rowan mature once again, while learning more about the history of the people of Rin. This one had a bit more of an environmental message to it, but it was written in a clever way.

    Another cute book that definitely pulled things together for the whole series. I like how everyone always underestimates Rowan (even himself) and he ends up being the one to figure things out in the end.

    This book was not as good as the previous four in the series. She did a lot of "telling" rather than "showing" to tie up the story.

    This was an exciting story to end the series with, a highly enloyable read.

    Another stellar story from Emily Rodda. I particularly like how she keeps the Rowan story formula fresh by delving more into Rin's history and how it affects Rowan and the others.
