North! Or Be Eaten by Andrew Peterson Review & Book Giveaway

8/17/09


Summary From The Publisher:

andrew petersonReaders thrilled to the phantasmagorical adventures in On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness, Book One of the Wingfeather Saga. Now in Book Two, Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby, mom Nia, ex-pirate grandfather Podo, Peet the Sock Man, and trusty dog Nugget flee north to rebel headquarters.

Their escape brings readers to the very brink of Fingap Falls , over the Stony Mountains , and across the Ice Prairies, while villains galore try to stop the Igibys permanently. Fearsome toothy cows and horned hounds return, along with new dangers: a mad man running a fork factory, a den of rockroaches, and majestic talking sea dragons.

Andrew Peterson’s lovable characters create what FantasyBookCritic.com says made Book One “one of the best fantasy novels in a very long time,” and Book Two contains even more thrills, exploring “themes universal in nature, ranging from the classic good versus evil, to the importance of family, and burdens of responsibility.”

Author Bio From The Publisher:

Andrew Peterson is the author of On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness and The Ballad of Matthew’s Begats. He’s also the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter and recording artist of ten albums, including Resurrection Letters II. He and his wife, Jamie, live with their two sons and one daughter in The Warren near Nashville , Tennessee . Visit Andrew’s websites: www.andrew-peterson.com and www.rabbitroom.com.

You can purchase this book online at Random House.

My Review/Thoughts:

I gave this to my 10 yr old son to read, and he absolutely loved it! He said it had lots of adventure and cool characters. There were all the ingredients of a fun story: medieval weapons like bows and arrows, sword fighting, and mythical creatures. Although this was the second book in the series, he did not have any problem getting into the story and figuring out the characters. This book was kid tested and mother approved! If you have a tween or a teen who loves fantasy fiction with a Christian perspective, they will love this book!
