North! Or Be Eaten: Andrew Peterson the Novelist

Last year I was able to promote Andrew Peterson’s first novel, On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness. Trying at best to overlook my bias for Peterson, I was well-pleased with his story-telling ability outside the context of a song. Likewise, I was supposed to read and review the second installment in his “The WingFeather Saga,” but alas, when I first signed up to be a part of the blog tour, I had not anticipated how busy I would become in the near future. At this point, I haven’t even cracked it open. In all likelihood, I won’t even get a chance to read it until Christmas break. Nevertheless, I can still give it a plug in hopes that you will not wait on me to take part in another great fantasy trilogy with the nice incentive that it is written by a Christian who is grounded in solid orthodoxy and who obviously loves Christ. Here is a brief summary and author bio. At the bottom are links to various sites related to Peterson and the book. Let me know what you think.

North! or Be Eaten

Janner, Tink, and Leeli Igiby thought they were normal children with normal lives and a normal past. But now they know they’re really the Lost Jewels of Anniera, heirs to a legendary kingdom across the sea, and suddenly everyone wants to kill them.

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 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.”
